Description of the Formax FD 87HDS Hard Drive Shredder

The Formax FD 87HDS hard drive shredder thoroughly destroys both desktop and laptop hard drives providing an extra level of security and peace of mind. Two separate cutting chambers are ready to handle either 3.5” or 2.5” hard drives. Simply load the drive into the chamber, close the safety shield and push the button. Solid steel cutting blades go to work to grind the hard drives into pieces that are 1.6” or .19” wide. A molded plastic waste bin is included to collect the shredded hard drive pieces so they can be recycled or properly disposed of.

The Formax FD 87HDS features quality construction both inside and out. Each of the shredding chambers has a metal safety shield and a resettable LED counter for an accurate count of the number of drives shredded. The LED control panel show real time operational status and has Auto-Reverse and Auto-Stop features to prevent jams. Built in sensors automatically stop the motor if the door is open or the waste bin is full. The waste bin can be easily accessed thru the front. The bin and the rugged metal geared motor are housed in a sturdy all metal cabinet to reduce operational noise. It also has built in casters for easier mobility. With the Formax FD 87HDS, you can be sure that sensitive data will not fall into the wrong hands.
