With a P-3 Security Level, this cross-cut shredder helps protect confidential details on discarded documents for small offices or home use. Its stacked cutting mechanism shreds more than 16 sheets into confetti in one pass so they fall into a convenient, 6-gallon bin. You won't have to bother removing staples. The paper shredder can shred staples as well as credit cards and CDs/DVDs. Perfect for light-duty use, it runs quietly at 70 decibels for 10 minutes before needing a 30-minute shutdown. Interlock switch automatically shuts off the shredder when the bin is removed. Paper entry is 8-7/8" wide.
