As with all types of machinery, document shredders will not operate efficiently unless properly maintained. The most effective way to care for a shredder is to oil it regularly.
Shredding produces a surprising amount of paper dust which builds up inside the cutting assembly and without frequent oiling, the accumulated detritus compacts putting strain on the cutters, motor gears and bearings. Failing to oil a shredder will inevitably reduce its lifetime.
The Swordfish Shredder Oil Lubricant Sachets – Packed in a handy ‘1 Year Pack’ contains 12 sachets for one-a-month application. Simply feed a sachet into your machine just like any other document. The encapsulated oil is specially formulated to evenly lubricate the cutting head blades and can be used with all types of paper shredder.
