Product Description

Product Description

The AS1023CD is a great shredder to use at home or in an office, it combines excellent performance and safety features with a price point well below its competitors. We describe the shredder as having a 12 sheet capacity and by this we mean you can take 12 sheets of paper and shred them all in one go (based on 75gsm). The AS1023CD cross cuts documents into small 5 x 55mm pieces which is very secure, it can also shred a single credit card at a time, and don't worry if you accidentally shred a paper clip or staple, this shredder will cope with both.

In addition there is a separate slot for shredding a CD or DVD, this separate shredding mechanism cuts the CD into 4 pieces destroying the CD, the separate shredding slot means that you don't have to put the CD through the slot intended for paper which should extend the life of your shredder. The large 18L waste bin will ensure that you don't have to empty it every 5 mins, and there is a large viewing window so you can see when it is full. The shredder has a pull out waste bin for easy removal meaning you dont have to lift the shredder head off the base when emptying - just simply slide out the bin, empty it and slide back into place.

There are a host of functions and safety features; including 'auto mode' which senses when the shredder should start and stop - when in auto mode there is a status indicator which lights up, 'Reverse' is used for clearing any jams, misfeeds or overloads, 'Thermal Overload' protects your shredder from overheating, the unit will cut out and not operate until cooled - there is also a status indicator that lights up should the thermal cut out be activated, there are also two further status indicators that light up, one for 'Overload' when you have inserted too much paper, and one for 'Bin Alignment' usually indicating the pull out bin has not been closed properly, both will light up and for safety prevent the shredder from operating. In addition there are further safety measures, a safety cut out prevents the shredder from operating if the bin is open or when the shredder head is not installed on the base correctly, we also have the patented feature 'ShredSafe', this is a safety cover on the top of the unit you can see in the pictures, the cover has 3 positions, closed - for when not is use, open for normal operation of the shredder, and a 3rd wide open position that operates the safety cut out, so basically if anyone trys to force anything including fingers into the shredder this will force the cover into the 3rd position instantly stopping the shredder from operating. To start shredding again simply return the ShredSafe cover to the middle operating position.

Overall this is a great home and office shredder that performs well, looks good and is easy to useand empty, the additional safety features and user friendly functions make the AS1023CD a great purchase for anyone looking for a reliable and safe new shredder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive piece of home office kit 12 April 2011
Whilst looking for a replacement for my 10 year old Rexel machine I investigated all makes and reviews before opting for this and I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the purchase and performance. As I work from home most of the time its important I have robust and reliable office equipment and this machine certainly fits the bill - slightly more pricey than other makes and models offered on Amazon however the looks and build quality suggest this unit will last. Well worth the investment - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 21 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
Delivery very quick. Assembly simple, tho' fitting casters took some 'encouragement! First week's use shows it works well; not too loud, copes with > 8 sheets 80gsm without struggling. Have run extensively in short 10 min sessions so far without problems (clearing out home office/papers!). Those with starting problems as previously reported might take care to ensure that the drawer is fully seated home before the safety switch (green light) functions.
This is my 4th shredder (previously Fellowes and 5 Star, which have all died within 2 years) and I rate it highly. After extensive research final buying decision was based on reported after-sales service and Aurora monitoring/response to comments on Amazon.

Aurora AS1023CD 10 Sheet Paper Shredder with Large 18L Pull-Out Waste Bin

I found this to be very reliable and did not keep cutting out as my previous locally purchased shredder did after a very short period of use.

Would recommend this unit for reasonably heavy duty home /office use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aurora AS1023CD shredder 26 Jun 2012
By trevva

Bought this as a repackaged but as new used item - perfect experience with seller... promptly despatched (with advisory notification of such) & delivered at entirely reasonable cost: received exactly as described.

Purchased to replace my expired Fellowes shredder; this is infinitely superior!

Other option was a Swordfish but this combined paper/credit card/CD-DVD shred facility for almost half the price.

Best features: pull out bin, multiple media handling capability, value for money (especially compared to Fellowes & Swordfish).

5.0 out of 5 stars A safe and efficient shredder. 30 Sep 2011
The Aurora AS1023 is safe and easy to use. I particularly liked the pull out waste bin, which makes it a lot easier (and less messy) to empty than most other shredders in this price range, where you have to lift the shredder off the bin in order to empty it. On the minus side, I couldn't get the wheels to fit, but that's only a minor issue to me.

3.0 out of 5 stars "BIN OPEN" displayed after set up. 23 Feb 2013
By Fred
Verified Purchase
Just received and I have to say it looks very smart!

It does take a couple of minutes to set up as you have to insert castors which is easy enough, but you also need to push the shredder head down firmly onto the bin until it clicks into place. This is pretty important otherwise the "BIN OPEN" light will be displayed and the shredder will not operate, even if the bin is closed, which is slightly confusing.

Apparently this is a safety feature for when you have not set it up correctly, so just ensure there is no gap between the head & the bin casing, then it works very well.

This shredder is a very capable piece of equipment that is able to do everything that is claimed. I like the front panel emptying which does away with the need to remove the top of the unit to empty it. There is a need to keep pushing the shredded remains down to the bottom of the bin to avoid possible tangles and jams but as long as this is done there is no problem at all. The disc shredder is useful and actually cuts the CD into pieces. I think that perhaps the cost at 1p under 60 is a little high but will be acceptable if the units life is a long one.

About 6 months on from purchase date I was disappointed to find that the shredder had stopped working completley and has been returned for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Home Shredder 29 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a great little shredder. It has one downside. If you do not watch when the bin is getting near full the shreddings fall down the back of the bin causing a mess when the bin is removed.
