The additional accessories that go with the shredders are almost as important as the shredders themselves. While some are necessary, like the shredder bags and oil, the automatic oilers can make the shredding process so much easier. By automatically detecting when the cutting shafts need more oil and then appropriately lubricating them with the perfect amount, it guarantees that your shredder is working as efficiently as possible, keeps it in good condition and extends its life. Manual oiling does this as well. Automatic oilers simply take the place of manual oiling and are accurate and hassle-free. Having an ample supply of shredder bags is important so that you aren’t trying to overstuff an already full bag, which could cause paper jams or even damage to the shredder.
