Swingline Stack-and-Shred Red Hands Free Shredder, Cross-cut, 60 Sheets, 1 User

Shred hands free to save time.
Matches the iconic, red Swingline stapler!
Cross-cut shreds in two directions.

By eliminating the need to manually feed papers, you can work on other tasks while the shredder shreds for you. The 60X model can automatically shred as many as 60 sheets, including those fastened with paper clips or staples. Simply insert a stack of 60 letter size sheets into the autofeed tray, shut the lid, and you're done. For glossy papers and crumpled or folded sheets a manual shredding slot is also included, which shreds up to 5 sheets at once. Manual feeding is also required for credit cards. The 60X is a cross-cut shredder, delivering Level P-3 security that is suitable for everyday shredding. One sheet of paper is shredded into approximately 200 pieces and caught in a 4-gallon waste bin. The Swingline Stack-and-Shred Red Hands Free Shredder is an innovative, automatic shredder that simplifies shredding and helps you get more things done during your day. It is the perfect, stylish shredder to show off your individuality and brighten up your office space.

This includes reversing the gears to back the jammed paper out of the feed slot.
D. R. Greenlee
The auto feed bin can take about 5 sheets at a time, not 60; and will only shred if they are completely flat - anything that was once folded is a problem.
Also, the bin containing the shredded paper tends to fill up very quickly and it can be messy to empty when full.

This shredder is great if you figure out the right technique. As you can see by the reviews, there is wide variation in the success with this shredder. I think the difference is that if you use flat paper - i.e. out of your printer with no folds - it seems to work fine. But if you are trying to shred bills or statements that came in the mail, the paper has folds in it that make it harder for the rollers to grab the paper and pull it down into the shredder, and it just spins its wheels, unless you use this trick.

HERE'S THE TRICK: Take your stack of paper, fold it in half, and crease the paper at the fold and then put the stack in the shredder with the crease pointing down (like a flattened out V) - the shredder will then grab sheets properly almost every time. The paper still sits more or less flat in the tray, but because the center of the paper has the crease, it dips down into the space between the rollers better so they can grab it. It seems to help if you put a really good crease in the bottom sheet to get things going.

Some other notes:

* You'll have to manually feed any paper that's odd sized, like those annoying checks your credit card company sends you. Although I did have better success with odd-sized stack and shred if I put all of the same kind in a clean stack and used the fold technique described above - the transfer checks from BofA worked okay this way.
* Redistribute the shredded paper occasionally (every 40 sheets or so) because it stacks up towards the back of the unit
* Clean the rollers occasionally by wiping them with a clean cloth to get paper shreds and dust off of them
* If you shred more over 130-150 sheets, it may stop and and show the red overheat light.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 100 Sheets Verified Purchase
I purchased this for our small office group of two people to replace an aging Fellowes traditional style cross cut shredder that munched mounds of paper quickly and efficiently for the last 5 or 6 years. This shredder was returned to the seller because it is only good in concept. The unit is not at all quiet. Paper loads inside with ease, but the rollers inside the unit often miss the paper stack and shuts off and you have to reopen and reposition the paper to get it to start shredding. The top of the unit has a slot that allows you to feed in a few sheets at a time if you do not have a big stack, but this is virtually useless. The slot you have to shove the paper in is partially covered and the slot is beneath this cover at an odd angle (probably for safety to keep out ties, etc) and it is virtually the exact width of a piece of paper so you constantly have to fumble with the page to get it in. The unit is also slow. It literally shreds one page at a time inside. We used it for 1 week, became frustrated with it, and returned it. Perhaps for a home unit or very light office shredder this would work ok, but I think there are a lot of other products that are a fraction of the cost that will do much better for the small jobs. If you are going to be shredding 100+ documents spend a bit more and go with a regular shredder, you will be much happier. The little bit of time saved with this unit is lost on reopening and closing the unit to get it to work and the fumbling with the top shredder on single sheets.

This shredder is definitely NOT worth the money even at a discounted price. Being able to stack multiple sheets of paper into the bin and walk away is a great concept but frequently the machine either didn't shred any of the stack or only shred part of the stack. Fanning the papers helped sometimes but not always. Along with not shredding, this machine jammed frequently (from the bin). The single sheet slot is poorly designed; to shed individual sheets required the sheet to be inserted almost 3/4th of its length before it engaged the cutting heads. After struggling with the Stack-and-Shred for three (3) hours I packed it up and returned it for another brand. Save your money.

I just bought this as Office Depot since it was on sale and I had a coupon... so I got it for a really good price. I just got it for home use, so I wasn't sure if I would like it...but I love it.

The good:
- Put a stack of paper in and walk away. No need to feed a few sheets at a time... but if you want to, it says you can feed 6 at a time - but it seems kind of slow that way to me.
- It has all the standard features of shredding credit cards and small staples, everything you would expect from a shredder (but not CD's). Just use common sense.
- What I LOVE is that I just threw a bunch of receipts into the hopper and it gobbled them right up. I went thru a bag of receipts that I had saved up to shred and it only took a
few minutes. I had a big bag because it is such a pain with a regular shredder, but this was really easy. Don't know if you're supposed to use it like that, but it works great!
- Not too big, about 12" wide by about 17" deep and about 17" high.
- Seems to be good quality, heavy duty.
The bad:
- No wheels or rubber feet or anything on the bottom...just sits there on the floor.
- Does not shred CDs.
- Not the fastest shredder, but you can put stack of paper in and leave it.

I've only had it for a day, but so far I'm really happy with my purchase. I don't think I would have purchased it for the full price, but for the price I got it for ($120), I LOVE it!
