Commercial Shredders

Commercial Shredders

 Commercial shredders are built to shred up to 10,000 sheets of paper per day. If you are doing this large of a workload then you will need a one of these shredders. Typically, a commercial shredder will be chain driven with steel gears and usually have a factor installed automatic oiler.

If you are shredding sensitive information, The Federal Trade Commission recommends an individual or business to use a crosscut shredder. A crosscut shredder will give you greater security and you will get up to 8 times as much shredded material into the container.

 If you’re going to be using your shredded material for packaging or bedding material for animals you should use a strip cut shredder. A strip cut shredder will shred more sheets per pass, requires less maintenance and the cost is usually less than a similar crosscut shredder.

 What types of documents should you shred?

 All old tax records should be shredded. If you’re not sure what tax records to keep, consult your account or call the IRS Taxpayer Assistance at 800-829-1040. Pay stubs, home improvement receipts, credit card receipts, credit card applications, utility bills, old insurance records, receipts unless related to warranties, and old checking accounts. Shred just about anything containing your personal information that an identity thief would use.

 The difference between a commercial shredder, heavy duty shredder, and an office shredder is the commercial shredder is chain driven and has steel gears. A heavy-duty shredder or office shredder you buy at your local office store will normally have plastic gears. If you have purchased one of these in the past then you are probably aware the plastic gears are the weakest link in your shredder. Plastic gears cannot stand up to the rigorous work environment required by a commercial shredder.

 If you are going to be shredding between 4,000 and 10,000 sheets on a daily basis, then you should consider getting a commercial shredder. Anything smaller you’d just be overworking your shredder and I wouldn’t last. Our Destroyit shredders, Dahle shredders, Intimus shredders and Formax commercial shredders are all chain driven with steel gears.

 A couple of shredders we would like to recommend are the Destroyit 4005 and Dahle 41614. The Destroyit 4005 is chain driven with steel gears, factory installed automatic oiling system and comes with one of the best warranties on the market with a lifetime warranty on the shred head and 3 years on parts. The Dahle 41614 cross cut shredder is chain driven with steel gears, factory installed automatic oiling system with a lifetime warranty on the shred head and 2 years on parts.

 Please feel free to call us for a friendly consultation and in just a few minutes on the phone we can help you choose the best shredder for your company’s shredding needs.
