Description of the Formax FD 8204 Cross Cut Shredder

The Formax FD 8204 cross cut shredder may be no larger than a common wastebasket but this compact shredder is powerful enough to handle not only paper, but paper clips, staples, credit cards, even CDs. The practical 9 inch feed opening can take up to 17 sheets a one time and the continuous duty motor runs at a speed of 7.5 ft per minute. With a shred size of 5/32" x 1 3/8" it meets level P-4 security requirements. The FD 8204 has all the user friendly features that Formax shredders are known for, automatic start/stop operation, reverse mode to release paper jams, and built in safety sensors which stop the motor if the waste bin is full or open. The waste bin holds up to 7 gallons, has a built in inspection window and slides out for fast and easy emptying. It weighs only 35 lbs and with built in casters it can be moved anywhere in the office. If that weren't enough, Formax has gone the extra step and improved the design of the FD 8204 so it's now even quieter than its predecessor, the FD 8202.
