Gladiator Portable Trash Compactor (15", Hammered Granite)
Compaction Strong as an Alligator's Jaws
In the pilot episode of “Miami Vice,” Sonny Crockett (played by Don Johnson) lives on a boat guarded by his pet alligator, Elvis. Elvis had been a live mascot for Sonny's alma mater, The University of Florida, when Sonny played football for the Florida Gators. (Sonny wore number 88 as a wide receiver.) Elvis the Gator was retired after biting a player on an opposing team, the Crimson Tide, so Sonny adopted him upon graduation. (The University of Florida no longer uses live alligators as mascots.)
Elvis filled many roles, including drug-sniffer and watch-gator, but his chief function was as a trash compactor. Elvis ate entire bags of dog food, whole fish, or anything else that was lying around. He even consumed part of Sonny’s prized Buddy Holly vinyl record collection. (Sonny got so mad he threatened to throw Elvis’s favorite possession overboard: a fuzzy pink blanket.)
Elvis’s main attribute was the amazing crushing pressure in his jaws - more than 2,000 pounds per square inch. That’s more than a great white shark!
If you want the same crushing power without the alligator, then we recommend the Gladiator Hammered Granite Portable Trash Compactor (15"). It’s like having a pet alligator in your home, except it only eats what you want it to.
