Dahle 20396 Heavy Duty Cross Cut Paper Shredder

Dahle 20396 heavy duty cross cut paper shredder is constructed with quality German engineering. It's built to last with chain driven cutting cylinders and steel gears. The benefit is slip free power to the cutting mechanism and constant shredding power without bogging down.

With a powerful 2.5 horsepower motor and a 16 inch feed opening it shreds 38-43* sheets at time and also accepts staples, paper clips, CDs & DVDs.

The electronic sensor in the feed opening automatically turns the shredder on and off. To operate the shredder just drop a sheet of paper into the feed opening and the shredder begins to shred automatically.  The bag full indicator will automatically shut the shredder off when the shred bag is full.

Dahle guarantees it's shredders to be free from manufacturing defects (materials / workmanship) for a period of 2 years. Dahle offers a lifetime guarantee on the cutting cylinder.

Dahle shredders are manufactured in Germany by Dahle Burotechnik GmbH using the latest technology and finest materials. Each component is manufactured and assembled from 80 years experience.
