Description of the Ameri-Shred AMS-50 Strip Cut Heavy Duty Office Shredder

The Ameri-Shred AMS-50 Strip Cut Office Shredder is available with 1/2 HP drive and is capable of shredding a fair amount of paperwork at a time. Feed an assortment of paper sizes into the impressive 16" opening. Like all models in this line, the AMS-50 is capable of producing two shred widths: 5/16" and 1/8" . Shred capacity depends highly upon the shred width. While the AMS-50 accepts 11* sheets per pass into 1/8" , this model will shred up to a reasonable 22* sheets into 5/16" strips. These strips tend to fill up a shredder bag rather quickly. Luckily, the Ameri-Shred AMS-50 holds up to a generous 40 gallons of shred waste. Staples, paper clips, credit card, and floppy disks are no match for the AMS-50's precision ground alloy steel cutters. This strip cut shredder easily dominates these materials without any harm to the cutters.

The all steel spur gears partnered with heavy-duty chain drive transfers maximum power from the motor to the cutters. To prevent dust or shred particles from corroding the internal gears, the electrical components remain protected in a fully enclosed dust proof housing. The low maintenance Ameri Shred AMS-50 will last for years thanks to its rugged solid steel construction. With dimensions of 45" L x 26.5" W x 38.5" H, the AMS-50 is not your typical office shredder and is best suited for offices with high capacity destruction jobs. Weighing in at 340 lbs., the AMS-50 is mounted on durable casters, which make relocating the unit around your space an easier task. Operational noise is severely limited, as the cutter head is mounted on rubber insulators. This results in whisper quiet operation, perfect for busy offices.
