Details Cross-cut shredder with 4.1-gallon bin 8-sheet capacity (no need to remove staples) Destroys credit cards (one at a time)

Destroys Credit Cards

Inserted one at a time into the designated area of the shredder, credit cards are completely destroyed, offering valuable peace of mind.

Easy Operation

In auto mode, shredding begins once the sensor detects something to be shredded. Shredded paper then drops into the 4.1-gallon bin below, and manual reverse makes easy work of clearing any paper jams.
The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for 3 minutes before needing a 30-minute cool-down. If it shreds continuously beyond the max running time and begins to overheat, the unit will automatically shut off to protect the motor.

Perfect for light use in a small business or home office, the cross-cut shredder conveniently fits under a desk or other workstation for easy access throughout the day. Even more, the shredder removes effortlessly when it’s time to empty the bin.
