Jackie The FD 8500AF paper shredder is truly an amazing shredder that has transformed my office in a way that I never thought possible. It is almost as if I have an extra worker in the office, but I really do not. This has to be one of the best papers shredders on the market. I have many confidential documents that require shredding on a daily basis. My secretary has so many daily responsibilities that it is nearly impossible for her to keep up with the daily shredding requirements. She can now place up to 175 pieces of paper that are up to #20 thickness and walk away to finish her other duties. The shredder continues to grab 18 sheets of paper at a time until the stack is complete. She saves a great deal of time because the shredder also slices through paper clips and staples with ease. This feature saves a great deal of time. The paper shredder is made of study materials. The blades are made of heavy-duty stainless steel. The majority of this machine is made of metal, and the shredder does not require any cool down time to work properly. The auto reverse function works wonders when papers get jammed in the blades. It takes just a few seconds to get the shredder back to working properly. This shredder has made my life easier. It is an amazing piece of equipment for the price that I paid. I hope to have this shredder for many years to come.
