Stuart thomas The Dahle 20506 is a wonderful shredder that is a great addition to my office area. This is a great shredder for any small business that needs a machine that can do a moderate amount of shredding throughout the day. Here are the strengths and weaknesses that I found with the 20506 shredder. Strengths- • Large Feeding Area – I shred mostly letter-sized sheets of paper. The 10.25-inch feeding area is perfect for all of my jobs. Slightly larger sheets of paper fit through without causing any problems.• Large Shredding Capacity – I can shred up to 2,000 sheets of paper per day. I normally never shred more than a few hundred sheets a day, but it is good to know that my machine can handle slightly larger jobs.• Lifetime Warranty – The manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty on the German made steel cutting heads. I know that if I ever have a problem that the manufacturer will take care of it. Weaknesses- • Level 2 Security – I only need the machine for shredding general documents, but for small businesses that require a shredder that can shred confidential or sensitive information, the 20506 is not the a good choice. It is only a strip cut machine.• Small Shred Capacity – The bag holds 16-gallons of shredded material, which is not much for a strip cut shredder. The bags fill easily, and I have to empty it often during large shredding jobs. The Dahle 20506 is a great machine. Even though I have a few issues with the machine, it is a great investment for small businesses.
