This shredder was selected as The Best by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute for its superior security and quiet operation. Unlike lesser strip-cut models that only obscure information minimally and become clogged easily, this commercial shredder chews through 14 sheets of paper at one time and completely destroys CDs and credit cards. The shredder’s 1 hp motor and two steel counter-rotating, micro-cutting gears cut paper into 1/4" x 1/4" unrecognizable confetti. Credit cards and CDs are cut into pieces impossible to reassemble or decipher. When shredding 10 sheets, this unit registered only 79.1 db (no louder than normal conversation). Its 8 1/2-gallon bin—the largest of all tested models—pulls out from the cabinet for easy emptying. Rolls smoothly on four hooded casters. With auto-start/stop and reverse. 25 1/2" H x 15 1/2" W x 12" D. (34 lbs.)
“Very quiet and powerful. Fits under my work station and is out of the way until I need it.”- M, Illinois

Simply the Best Yet
from Lakewood Ranch Florida
I owned one of those strip cut shredders and I could see personal info after items were shredded. No more of that, the confetti like contents in the bin following shredding is worth the price I paid. This is also very quiet which is certainly a welcome feature after having a very noisy shredder in the past. Thank You HS for your superiour products.

Looks like a winner!
We have only had the machine for a short time, but it is working very well at present, and looks like it will be a capable machine for our purposes. And it IS quiet running when we shred stuff!

Very happy with this shredder
By Clutter Nutter
from Rochester, NY
My sister and I bought this shredder to share in discarding years worth of personal paperwork. I used it for a week or so and passed it along. This is a workhorse and quieter than I thought it would be. After reading others' comments, I only input 6 pages at a time for now. We'll be using it in the years to come.

So far, So good
By gypsy granna
from midddletown ct.
I have 50 years of personal files and pictures to reduce to thumb drives and shredding (which will be turned into burning bricks). first week of use has gone well and I expect it to do the whole job. It's large size is great for easy reach from chair. It is quiet enough that I can still listen to a book or watch a TV show. The wheels allow you to drag it close for work and push it away when you want to get up. It would be overkill for light home use but seems to be a workhorse for the larger job. Also cuts into small squares that should be too much trouble for someone to try to reconstruct.
The Shredder is THE BEST! Excellent!

I use this at home to shred financial documents and other forms that have personal information. It shreds extremely well and does it so quietly. What a difference from my last shredder. The bin is large and holds a lot of paper. The feeder slot is angled for safety. I did notice that after emptying the paper, the bin goes in easier if you push toward the bottom not the top. Very happy with my purchase.
