abunda_amazon_reviews This is a quite nice machine. Very basic yet built tough to do the job. The first job I had for this shredder was a ten inches pile of documents and several closed documents, some quite thick ones. I even had my kids help me with it, for the very thick ones I opened as I was afraid of jamming the machine. The machine performed quite well which generated 9 full buckets of shredded paper. Many of the documents where stapled at the top corner and the shredder chewed right through it without any issues. I did get the machine jammed with a set of 9 sheets so I was a bit surprised as the maximum recommended is 12. They were packed very tight so that is why I think it jammed the machine. THE GOOD STUFF: Heavy duty feel to the build of the machine Basic features to get the job done - Auto On with a sensor, reverse to remove jams, safety button which only allows the teeth to rotate when the top is fully attached to the bucket (great feature as the teeth are EXTREMELY sharp which is a good thing Compact Size and discreet THE NOT SO GREAT STUFF: It produces a lot more dust than our previous unit Its a bit noisy, so if you are using in an office its best to put it on an more isolated area than in your desk The shredded material is quite wide and long (about ¼ inch by 1 and ¼). It would be nice if they were chopped once more to less than half an inch THE BAD STUFF THought the unit with the motor is well built, the bucket is quite flimsy and due to the safety mechanism it will be hard to retrofit it to another bucket without bypassing the safety click (and that would be dangerous as the unit could turn on while upside down and that would be VERY VERY dangerous. Overall I would definitely recommend this simple shredder for the home office use. If there is lot of demand and several people on constant of use like in an small office, this might be OK but it would be on the edge. I used for 30 minutes basically only stopping to dump out the material and it got a bit worm but delivered only with a small jam. Please let me know if this helps you or if you need any additional pics or other info.

I’ve seen other reviews I personally think the garbage can (bottom portion/ container) is well-built. It had zero problem shipping to me in one piece. I’ve tested and this can easily shred 15 to 16 pieces of normal copy paper and probably 12 of the thicker resume paper. Personally I use this to shred cardboard. (with all the boxes that I get from Amazon and/or for business it’s a great for shredding cardboard) and compost it afterwards. If you see in the video and photo attached the shredder has no problem going through very thick cardboard whatsoever. Think “A hot knife through butter”. I also want to say that the machine is extremely quiet in comparison to other shredders a have owned or currently own. I’ve seen on other reviews people said it was loud.

One the bottom canister or garbage can cannot be replaced because of the safety mechanism that is built into the shredder. I realize it’s put there for safety but it’s kind of a pain if it ever cracks or breaks. Two is the opening only measures about 8.75-9 inches. If a larger amount of paper or cardboard is loaded in and isn't square to the opening it can jam. That’s easily resolved with the reverse button on the top of the shredder.
