With an all-steel frame, this paper shredder will keep the cutting cylinders, motor, and moving parts in perfect alignment. The solid steel cutting cylinders are stronger than a stacked cutting head, so it can easily handle staples and paper clips. They’re also guaranteed to last the lifetime of the shredder. The chain-driven cutting mechanism will give you constant, slip-free power to the cutting mechanism, and the rubber shock mounts are designed to reduce vibration (which makes it one of the quietest paper shredders on the market). The wooden cabinets with rolling casters make it easy to put it into position. And with full electronic models from the control pad, you can set it to several different modes.


The gridlines on this paper trimmer are in both inches and metric units, which makes it easier to align the material for precise trimming. And because it will cut in either direction, it will not only save you time but will also improve efficiency. The self-sharpening blade will produce a clean, burr-free cut for many years of precision trimming, and the blade is enclosed inside a plastic housing (which will prevent injury). The adjustable paper guide will allow you to align the material for repetitive cutting. The automatic paper clamp will hold your work in place, which will prevent shifting. And the sturdy metal base will never warp, crack, or chip.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can I run a paper shredder?

All paper shredders have a motor. And after some intensive shredding, it can overheat. It can take place within minutes, or it can happen after a few hours. So, the amount of “run time” you have before it overheats will depend on the type, quality, and security level of the shredder you’re using.

What can I do if my paper shredder stops working?

This is a common problem that can be easily solved by making sure the device is plugged into the wall. This will fix the problem in most cases, but you should also make sure the cutting head is properly situated because it can become inoperable if it’s out of place. Make sure you check your owner’s manual to see if something other than these two options may be the cause.

What should I look for in a paper shredder?

While you’re looking for a paper shredder, it’s important to know your options. That way, you can determine which features are appropriate for what you’ll be shredding and what will work best for you. Here are some things you should look for as you make your decision:
  • Paper Size — You should have an idea of what size paper you’ll be shredding the most often. Most offices will need a paper shredder that takes letter-sized paper. But sometimes, you may need more.
  • Load Size — If you’re shredding small reams of paper, a simpler and narrower shredder input will work fine. But if you need to shred anything more than a few sheets of paper, you’ll need something that can handle a mid-sized load.
  • Cut Type — Not all paper shredders will slice your documents into straight vertical lines. While strip-cut machines cut paper into long, straight lines, micro-cut machines take this concept and improve on it. It cuts paper into much smaller pieces, which reduces the paper into particles instead of chunks.
  • Shredder Speed — Most office paper shredders have a specific run time, so they can operate continuously for up to a specific period of time. And it can be anywhere from two minutes to more than an hour (depending on the make and model of the machine).
  • Noise Level — Most paper shredders will be noisy. But if you’re willing to spend a little more money, you have a good chance of finding a noise-controlled unit.
  • Security Level — Safety guards are included in most shredders, because it can keep fingers out of any dangerous areas. But more expensive paper shredders may have laser sensors that will detect fingers and stop the blades before they can do any more damage.
  • Advanced Features — Just because you buy a paper shredder, it doesn’t mean that’s all that should be included. Many office paper shredders have a number of advanced features that can add to and improve upon the shredding experience.
  • Power-Saving Options — About 80% of the energy coming from a paper shredder comes while it’s in use. So if you want something that won’t use as much power, you should find one that makes energy efficiency a priority.
