This is a top-of-the-line office shredder for those who like to drive a Ferrari to the corner store. It is designed to meet the requirements of any corporate office department of six to ten users, and probably bigger and more than you need in your home office, but it sure is butch. It uses cross cut shredding which cuts the paper vertically as well as horizontally into confetti-like pieces and really "gets rid of the evidence". Cross cutting also compresses paper better so the basket holds more paper. This shredder cuts sixteen pages per pass and has a thermal/overload protection auto-stop on jamming, is CD, paper clip, staple, and credit card safe. It has an automatic shut off and alert when container is full and a reverse paper feature to avoid jams. Warranty Parts/Warranty Labor: Twenty years.
