Cross-Cut Shredder

Cross-Cut Shredder

More secure than a strip-cut shredder, this cross-cut shredder slices diagonally in both directions to destroy paper, credit cards and more.

Easy Start

Easy Start

In Auto (on) mode, shredding begins once the machine detects something to be shredded, and then it stops automatically when shredding is complete.

Reverse Function

Reverse Function

The reverse function makes it possible to retrieve un-shredded or partially shredded documents, plus helps prevent paper jams.

Thermal Protection for Safety

Thermal Protection for Safety

The shredder will automatically shut off to protect the motor if it runs beyond its maximum run time or begins to over-heat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Shredder!
By Mason W on February 8, 2018
I purchased this bad boy for my wife’s home office. Let me start off by saying this thing shreds harder than Andy Brinker from the 1998 classic film Brink. For those of you who don’t know, this 99 min film introduced some of the most unique roller blade shredding ever witnessed. Purchase this and you can be shredding like Andy in no time!

Update** after using the the shredder my wife has been walking around the house being very confrontational. She now says things like “Bruh, do you even shred!?” For this reason I have to deduct one star.

4.0 out of 5 stars Efficient but could benefit crime some improvements
By Cass Young on January 4, 2019
This is a quite nice machine. Very basic yet built tough to do the job. The first job I had for this shredder was a ten inches pile of documents and several closed documents, some quite thick ones. I even had my kids help me with it, for the very thick ones I opened as I was afraid of jamming the machine. The machine performed quite well which generated 9 full buckets of shredded paper. Many of the documents where stapled at the top corner and the shredder chewed right through it without any issues. I did get the machine jammed with a set of 9 sheets so I was a bit surprised as the maximum recommended is 12. They were packed very tight so that is why I think it jammed the machine.
THE GOOD STUFF:
Heavy duty feel to the build of the machine
Basic features to get the job done - Auto On with a sensor, reverse to remove jams, safety button which only allows the teeth to rotate when the top is fully attached to the bucket (great feature as the teeth are EXTREMELY sharp which is a good thing
Compact Size and discreet
THE NOT SO GREAT STUFF:
It produces a lot more dust than our previous unit
Its a bit noisy, so if you are using in an office its best to put it on an more isolated area than in your desk
The shredded material is quite wide and long (about ¼ inch by 1 and ¼). It would be nice if they were chopped once more to less than half an inch
THE BAD STUFF
THought the unit with the motor is well built, the bucket is quite flimsy and due to the safety mechanism it will be hard to retrofit it to another bucket without bypassing the safety click (and that would be dangerous as the unit could turn on while upside down and that would be VERY VERY dangerous.

Overall I would definitely recommend this simple shredder for the home office use. If there is lot of demand and several people on constant of use like in an small office, this might be OK but it would be on the edge. I used for 30 minutes basically only stopping to dump out the material and it got a bit worm but delivered only with a small jam. Please let me know if this helps you or if you need any additional pics or other info. Cheers,

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome shredder; Better than expected.
By Christopher on September 9, 2019
PROS: I want to cover first the high-quality and well-built aspects of this paper shredder. I’ve seen other reviews I personally think the garbage can (bottom portion/ container) is well-built. It had zero problem shipping to me in one piece. I’ve tested and this can easily shred 15 to 16 pieces of normal copy paper and probably 12 of the thicker resume paper. Personally I use this to shred cardboard. (with all the boxes that I get from Amazon and/or for business it’s a great for shredding cardboard) and compost it afterwards. If you see in the video and photo attached the shredder has no problem going through very thick cardboard whatsoever. Think “A hot knife through butter”. I also want to say that the machine is extremely quiet in comparison to other shredders a have owned or currently own. I’ve seen on other reviews people said it was loud. It obviously isn’t going to be silent. Even in comparison to the Amazon basics 8 sheet shredder, it’s about half as quiet as that. That link is below if you don’t need something this heavy-duty as the 12 sheet.

Link to the AmazonBasics 8-Sheet Strip-Cut Paper, CD and Credit Card Home Office Shredder https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DN9NX0I/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_BlQDDbTFVANXG

CONS: My two issues with this shredder. One the bottom canister or garbage can cannot be replaced because of the safety mechanism that is built into the shredder. I realize it’s put there for safety but it’s kind of a pain if it ever cracks or breaks. Two is the opening only measures about 8.75-9 inches. If a larger amount of paper or cardboard is loaded in and isn't square to the opening it can jam. That’s easily resolved with the reverse button on the top of the shredder. I would link to see this same shredder with a 12 inch opening.

Bottoms line is I would buy again or recommend to a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trituradora básica para pequeña oficina
Reviewed in Mexico on February 17, 2018
La trituradora funciona como se esperaba, y tal como se menciona en la publicación y en las reseñas que vimos en diferentes páginas de internet. La usamos para una pequeña oficina y abastece muy bien ya que se tritura de a poco cada día, pero para grandes volúmenes se quedaría corta. Hasta el momento no hemos llegado a saturar la capacidad de los 2 minutos de operación, y alimentándola de 5 hojas por vez hemos medido que se pueden triturar alrededor de 30 a 35 páginas por minuto. la capacidad máxima es de 6 hojas, pero notamos que se forza mucho más y tritura mas lento, por lo que optamos por dejarlo en 5 hojas.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Shredder Works Perfectly Out Of The Box! No Jams So Far!
Reviewed in Canada on December 4, 2020
If you are trying to decide if this is the right shredder for you, I can highly recommend it over the mainstream brands.

// THE GOOD STUFF //
✅ Setup - Put the lid that contains the motor on top - DONE!
✅ Great Storage Capacity
✅ Shreds Paper & Credit Cards
✅ Shred Up To 8 Sheets Of Standard 20 Lb Stock Paper
✅ Forward & Reverse Buttons

// THE NOT SO GOOD STUFF //
⭕ None found so far!

This shredder is incredibly easy to start using once you unpack it. Simply place the top lid, which houses the shredding motor, onto the case and you are done with the setup.

I was able to shred paper and gift cards without issue. So far, I have not encountered any jams, but I have been careful not to put through more than eight pieces of paper at a time. I also make sure I remove all staples before I put the paper through.

I like that the feeder slot is not too wide, so I can't put my fingers into the paper slot, even trying on purpose. I always make sure I switch the shredder off when I do not use it to be on the safe side.

I haven't even had to empty it yet because the amount of shredded paper that it holds is quite decent. It isn't too loud either, but you don't want to be shredding when people are sleeping.

The paper strips that it produces are thin enough for my purposes in terms of privacy requirements. You can see how wide the paper strips are in my photos.

I fully recommend this paper shredder if you want something that is no-fuss and easy to use!
