For starters I learned that to ensure the life of a shredder one needs to oil it regularly. Ya, basic to many of you perhaps, but ya only know what you are taught or not!!
This is very quiet. Very thorough; I like that paper does not scatter about when the bucket is filled. I like that the instuctions tell you clearly not to shred more than 7 consecutive minutes, etc. There are clear, easy "rules" to follow to ensure long life....
Which I have yet to see, of course, since I just recently purchased this.
It's a bit large, so you can't tuck this away discretely. But it works well, so!!
My only "issue" is that, although the machine is on wheels, it is not easy to manouver at all. It does not roll and is quite challenging to lift.
Overall I would recommend this item. And I would definitely recommend the seller. This was EXCELLENTLY packaged and arrived quite swiftly.
The second thing that surprised them and myself as well was how quiet this shredder was compared to the previous one. In fact it's quieter than my Simply Shred PX312D. I mean this thing is quiet. So we no longer have to wait to shred after service is over.
Well woth the money!!
The shredded strips are thin (about 3/16") but somewhat long (about 1 3/4"). As I use this machine to shred non-security-sensitive paperwork, this is not an issue for me but might be for some users.
The machine continues to run for a short time after the paper has been shredded. I think this is intended to clear remaining paper from the grinding mechanism. This design probably can viewed as a plus, as it likely will minimize jammed-paper incidents.
There is a short slot to destroy CDs, but unlike other machines that I have, this short slot will not shred paper. As I don't use the machine to dispose of CD's I have covered the slot with a label indicating it doesn't shred paper.
The machine works reasonably quickly, isn't too loud for a small office, and has a 7.4 gallon easy-to-empty bin. During the short time that I have had this product, I have been very happy with it and would not hesitate to buy another one if needed.
This product performs better and is a little quieter than the Aurora model it replaced.
The old shredder cost half the price.
In the 2 months or so we have used the shredder there have been no problems with it.
I will update this review if needed.
