Swordfish Shredder Oil Lubricant Sachets – Pack of 12 Sachets – Suitable for all Paper Shredders
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.
Oiling is an essential part of shredder maintenance. It helps to maintain maximum performance and is necessary in order to maintain warranty coverage.
Shredding produces a surprising amount of paper dust which builds up inside the cutting assembly. Without frequent oiling, the accumulated detritus compacts, putting a strain on the cutters, motor, gears and bearings. Failing to oil a shredder will inevitably reduce its lifetime.
Shredders should be oiled on a regular basis and before any period of intensive shredding.
Lubrication should always be done when the shredder is cold. Never add oil to a hot shredder. Never use oil from an aerosol as the propellant may be flammable. Always use oil designed for use in shredders.
Swordfish Oil Lubricant is also available in 240ml bottles (search: Swordfish 40069) and 350ml bottles (search: Swordfish 40240)
These 'clean and easy' shredder lubrication sachets from Swordfish are suitable for use with all brands of paper shredders and should be fed into the machine just like any other document. The special oil inside the sachets will evenly lubricate the cutting heads. Using the sachets once a month will ensure your shredder maintains a clean cut and help prevent paper clogging.See all Product Description

Does exactly as advertised. I was at first a little reluctant to buy what appeared to be quite a pricy way to oil the shredder cutters, but after previously adding too much or too little oil from a bottle - with disastrous results - I decided to give them a try.
A first class product which evenly oiled the cutters without leaving any residue on the shredder case. The 'envelope' that contains the oil seems to be made of a kind of plastic, so if you recycle your shredded paper I suggest emptying the shredded sheet before starting your new batch of shredding.
We do a lot of shredding but it is cyclical. In some months we do very little but on other occasions we will empty the bin perhaps twice in a week. I therefore do not use the sachets religiously once a month but when it appears that the shredder needs it - when it gets clunky, with a noisier motor or if it starts to jam up a little more easily. One sachet of oil, probably on average seven times a year, sorts things out.
Whilst the oil sachets do seem more pricey than a can of shredder oil, I find they are infinitely easier to use as well as being less messy. It is so simple to just pass one of the sachets through the shredder rather than mess about with an aerosol religiously running the nozzle along the teeth. I have used both and prefer the sachets by far.
when I found this item thought I would give it a try. . . . . So easy, 1st of every month just put it through the shredder, no fuss or mess GREAT. . .
One thing I feel obliged to point out is that the product description refers to this product as "Shredder Oil Lubrication and Sharpening Sachets" - looking at the description on the box no reference is made to the sharpening properties of this product, there is a brief reference to its use "maintaining a clean cut" but I take that to be a consequence of contributing to cleaning the cutters rather than a claim of any sharpening qualities. I'm happy to be corrected if I've got this wrong and I think it's just a bit of careless wording rather than an attempt to deliberately mislead - so I haven't deducted a star.
In summary, this is a good quality product that is significant cleaner and easier to use than a bottle of shredder oil, and, which will pay dividends in terms of shredder reliability and longevity. Recommended.

A great idea, and much better than our previous spray can, which always seemed to spread the oil further than just the shredder. Worth the relative cost for the convenience. Read morePublished 1 month ago by A.Clark
