Description of the Formax FD 8500 SC Shredder

Have you ever watched stacks of documents pile up near the office shredder because no one wants to sit there and feed the shredder? This is a very common and modern dilemma, and a reason why too many companies end up paying for professional shredding services. Enter the Formax FD 8500 SC, a commercial grade shedder built to provide convenience and eliminate the need for wasteful time and effort tackling high volume shredding tasks. The Formax FD 8500 SC features an optical sensor that automatically turns the device on whenever paper is detected in the infeed area. The infeed itself is enormous and is 16" wide and large enough to handle even "green bar" computer forms. The machine will also handle staples, paper clips, and materials as rugged as credit cards without the need for a second infeed.

The Formax FD 8500 SC handles up to 22 sheets at once and shreds around 33 feet per minute. The oversized collection bin takes up to 26 gallons at one time and uses cross cut and strip cut methods. This machine is Level 2 security and processes down to levels fine enough to prevent any concerns. The work is done by the powerful geared motor that uses heavy duty steel to give the best results with the smallest amount of noise. The motor is rated for continuous duty, meaning it can run for hours on end without any failure or undo strain on components. The automatic reverse feature kicks materials out of the infeed area and puts the motor into reverse drive whenever a jam begins. The heat treated cutters are meant to deliver long term service with only minimal oiling (and an optional automatic oiling system is available for this shredder).

An oversized bin mounted on durable casters guarantees easy use in multiple locations, and an automatic sensor warns when the bin has reached capacity. There is also an easy to use cleaning feature that runs the motor in reverse for several seconds to ensure that all debris is eliminated. There is also thermal overload protection to ensure that safety is always a sure thing for those using the Formax FD 8500 SC for heavy volume shredding jobs.
