AUTO FEED ?C Auto feed takes the headache out of shredding: just stack, shut and shred. Simply put a stack of up to 130 sheets into the auto feed chamber and the rollers will feed it into the cutters.

Top Positive Review

You can’t just dump any old stack of papers the staples hinder the paper advancing to the cutting surface so pull them! As for differently sized papers… Well, they have to be large enough to be caught by the rollers that pinch and pull the paper in. If you use this with common sense & put in the tiny bit of effort to remove staples, this shredder is a godsend!
No more sitting feeding sheets into a small volume shredder no more backing up unshreddible bits & having that mess all over the floor! I LOVE THIS MACHINE!
Footprint as small as printer, could even sit on a counter & weighs far less than I thought it would! I am in total awe of the efficiency of it! Would highly recommend this product and no one gave me or offered me anything to write this.

Top Critical Review

Unless you shred neatly-stacked, unfolded-pages of equal size and slightly creased in the center for the wheels can pull/catch the paper, this shredder is not going to offer a satisfying experience. Here’s why: the so-called “100 page” feeder is constantly jamming especially if the paper is not slightly creased to grip. But let’s say you are not always shredding flatly laid items put in a stack. Let us say you want to shred a bill in an envelope. We all get mail we don’t need and we don’t even bother to open, but know it’s best to shred. If that envelope has two pages and is tri-folded, like a bank statement or credit card bill, you CANNOT manually shred it. WHY? Because the shredder can only shred six pieces of paper at a time, so an envelope with two pieces of paper, tri-folded, plus the envelope equals 8 layers of paper. The shredder can only handle six. The shredder jams up.Cheaper ones handle 12-15 with ease. The auto-feed is a great idea, but needs all the particulars right for it to work. The manual cannot handle a folder envelope. Swingline has good products, but this model is a miss.

Customer Questions & Answers

How long does it run shredding.
Answer: The machine runs for as long as there is something in the shred mechanism. Then the machine turns off automatically. It will come on automatically if you leave the on/off button in the on position. But it will not run without something in the shred area.

Does this machine jam, if so, what’s the best way to avoid jamming?
Answer: The machine jammed frequently, over heated frequently. I can’t tell you we found an effective way to avoid jamming, maybe other than 1 page at a time. You notice I used past tense. We no longer use it.

Do you have to buy the plastic bags for this machine or can I use any plastic garbage bags?
Answer: The wire basket that holds the bag is about 16 X 19 inches. Even with Swingline 19″ bags it is difficult to get a bag on without tearing it. It will not take a “Tall” trash bag at all. I have not tried using the larger “Contractor” size bags with it. Other than the bag issue, the shredder is a gem.
