Shred those top secret spy documents with confidence!!
on 9 December 2016
I have had this some time now and still very pleased with it. I had one before this and all it did was get jammed up - this one never fails me
There is a knack though - if you have a lot of paper to shred, I find that you start increasing the amount as you feed it in because you get bored or think that it is going in too easy..... Don't be fooled - keep plodding with a few sheets only or it does get jammed. As I say to my Son all the time - "Less is more".
I have thrown paper in it, stapled paper, card, envelopes, DVD's, credit cards, It doesn't like plastic pouches (A4 sort for paper) as it gets mangled in the cruncher and if you have been doing a lot - it gets hot and melts them!! Not quite sure I even did it in the first place!
The bin holds a fair bit, but a definite improvement would be to have latches on the side to hold the bin to the cruncher, as I keep picking the thing up to take it somewhere leaving the bin part behind..... It just sits on the top.
All in all, a good buy for my 'personal use' shredding. I would want something more hefty if I had a business and was needing it daily.
