Product Description

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)

Manufacturer's Description

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.

Swordfish One-A-Month Shredder Lubrication Sachets
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.

By Dolphin #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 5 Oct. 2009
This is a set of thin plastic sachets that contain enough oil to lubricate your shredder around once per month.

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.

I just couldnt understand why I had to keep buying a new shredder every two year, no one said you have to oil them. Then I came accross that intormation by accident. Didnt fancy oil everywere, so
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. . .

Having 4 shredders I have quickly become aware of the difference regular oiling makes to their reliability and longevity. I stained a carpet in the study by over-oiling a shredder using a bottled shredder oil - the oil seeped through shredder base onto the carpet. These sachets from Swordfish will avoid such problems in the future. You get a "Trade Pack" of 12 sachets with exactly the right amount of oil in them and you just feed one into your shredder once a month. The shredder is then lubricated and the process helps clear paper dust out of the cutters etc. I find my shredders jam less frequently and actually run smoother since I started using these Swordfish sachets.

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.

Ordered this when I bought new shredder, having read other people's recommendations that you lubricate your shredder - this seemed these easiest to do in my circumstances. When unpacked shredder discovered that guarantee wd be invalidated if I used lubricant.... Decided to wait and see how I get on and probably postpone use until shredder is older, and treat it considerately in the meantime! My conclusion - don't rush into ordering - get your shredder, see how it works, and then get a pack of these later if you think they wd be a good idea. Seems like an easy, clean way to do the job if you need to. Good luck.

My shredder is now over 12 years old & I am sure that using the sachets once a month has prolonged its life as it's still going strong and is used on a daily basis.

Does the job without getting dirty, that is all you need really. No spillage problems. But - 1. not sure how often to use it; 2. expensive compared to oil hence three stars.
