- Light-operated Paper Shredder
What they say
I shredded a large volume of junk mail and files that had been piling up, and the machine didn't overheat once. I figured I would not be able to use it for very long before letting it cool, but I used it on and off for about 20 minutes with not a single issue. It's a great machine! I would highly recommend!
This shredder is everything they say it is. Two overstuffed boxes of papers and plastic cards destroyed in 4.5 hours of continuous shredding. The remains are so small it was hard to distinguish the paper from the plastic. And, yes, it is quiet. I was a little skeptical about ordering a brand name I was not familiar with but now that I have it, I am so glad I did.
The shredder works like a champ. I’ve disposed of so many documents. I decided I didn’t need to retain tax returns from the 1970s. Annoying mail is dispatched easily with this machine. Its design allows almost continuous operation without overheating. I recommend using fellows oil every time the bin is emptied.
What does cross cut shredding mean?
A cross-cut shredder is also known as a confetti-cut, particle-cut or diamond-cut shredder because of the small paper particles the machine produces after shredding.
These type of paper shredders cut documents diagonally from both corners. The result after shredding your documents are small paper particles which are barely readable.
This is why cross-cut shredders offer more security than a strip-cut paper shredder.
Microcut paper shredder is the best, even more efficient than crosscut as it is designed to cut unwanted documents into tiny shreds.
Documents destroyed using micro-cut paper shredders would be impossible to reassemble thus making them the most ideal choice for highly confidential documents.
Companies that deal with highly confidential documents prefer to purchase microcut shredders because they don’t want confidential information getting into wrong hands.
