          Shreds up to 12 (twelve) sheets of paper, one CD/DVD or one credit card at a single pass – separate CD slot means you shred discs without dulling the blades

          Cons

          Although the shredder does not have a sensor to detect foreign objects entering the blade, it has an angled feeding opening that would be very difficult to engage accidentally with, say a finger. It generally handles 6 pieces of paper fairly easy. But when one starts putting in 7,8,9 or more than you can hear the shredder begin to slow. The bin also holds 4.8 gallons of shredded material almost 0.2 gallons less than the manufacturer claims. Also the shredder won’t shred unless there is a piece of paper in the slot. Once inserted, the paper trips the (automatic trip switch) shredder to begin to shred. There is a manual reverse button switch but no manual forward one.

          Warranty

          1-Year limited warranty

          Our Verdict

          These few disadvantages do not outweigh the advantages the machine has. In fact, it is one of the best-rated home machines in Amazon. If you need a faster, quieter, more heavy-duty product ready to tackle several shredding sessions this is the machine to go for. It can be great shredder if you understand your needs well.
