The Piranha shreds up to 14 sheets of paper in a single pass, producing 1/8" x 1" shred particles. The all steel gears destroy paper, staples, paper clips, CDs, and credit cards in an instant. The 28 liter waste basket collects this shred debris. When this shred bin reaches full capacity, a handy alarm will sound. This helps you avoid overflow and potential shredder malfunctions. In case a paper jam or other malfunction occurs, the Piranha will automatically revert to reverse mode until the problem is fixed. Lightweight and compact, this cross cut shredder moves around the office effortlessly due to the sturdy swivel casters. Automatic start and stop functions ensure greater efficiency and lessens operational time.
