Known for its power and waste capacity, this Dahle Department Shredder provides a practical solution for accommodating the shredding needs of even the busiest offices. This machine can continually shred large quantities of paper for extended periods of time and is designed to shred between 2,000 and 12,000 sheets of paper per day. Its attractive design and large waste bin make this a nice addition to any large office, copy room or communications center.

The Dahle 20813 has a 16" feed opening to easily accommodate letter, legal and wide computer paper. It has a maximum sheet capacity of 10/12 sheets at a time and features a large capacity waste bin capable of holding 35 gallons of shredded material. In order to provide slip free power to the cutting cylinders, a steel chain and gears connect the two components and provide maximum shredding capacity. Removing staples and paper clips are a thing of the past. Dahle shredders can easily accommodate these items without harming the machine and saving you time in the process.

Properly oiling this Department Shredder is the key to maintaining optimal performance. Due to it’s function, this Department Shredder will be placed in a common area and have multiple users.

Sabrina This machine is designed for heavy-duty usage. It has an enormous shredding capacity that business owners will lover. Here are the strengths and weakness of the Dahle 20813: • Continuous Duty Capable – The shredders has an extremely powerful motor that is designed for continuous use. I can shred all day without worrying about the machine needing to cool down.• Sturdy Structure - The blades are designed to work continuously. The steel chains are connected to the motor to offer slip-free power and added durability to the shredder. The machine can even shred credit cards, staples, and paper clips.• Large Shredding Capacity – I can shred up to 15 sheets of paper at time with my shredder. I am very impressed with the 16 inch feeding area. This comes in handy when shredding computer printouts on card stock. The shredder has the capacity to shred 2,000 to 12,000 sheets of paper in a day. I will never reach this number, but it is good to know that the option is available.• Excellent Warranty – The manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty on the cutting heads and a 2-year warranty on the parts.• Manual Oiling – This machine does not offer the automatic oiling function to maintain the machine’s condition. I have to oil the machine manually. I do not require an automatic oiler, but the machine is pre-wired for those who require this feature.• Level 3 Security – Although the machines is FACTA compliant, it is not qualified as machine for stop secret material. As stated previously, I do not need a top security machine, but those that do should look for a level 5 or 6 security shredder.

    Customer Testimonials

    "Great customer service, but the web site is little misleading. I completed an order for a Fellows shedder and once my order was complete I received an email that the item was not available. So I tried a different follows shedder and again another email telling me it was not available. I was pretty frustrated and confused. Why have it available to purchase if you do not have the inventory. If you put 'Out of stock' I would not have completed my order. I called your customer service to see what Fellows you had in stock. The man I talked to told me all about Fellows and their change in manufactures, thus the reason for such low inventory. I asked if he could tell me what ones they had available to sell, which he did and I received my fabulous new shedder two day s ago. So I say good job to customer service guy, because I would have probably gone some where else if it wasn't for him. "


    "I needed a good shredder for my boss. Your company had so many shredders to chooser from. It was easy tho my the way you broke down the choices. I then went over the reviews and picked my favorite from them. The shredder showed up less than a week later and my boss loves it! He started 'playing' with it immediately. It is very quiet and is the same height as his desk so everything just kind of flows nicely in his office. And Kevin followed through very well to make sure everything went smoothly. Thanks a bunch Kevin and Clary for a great experience! Will buy from you again when our other shredders go out!"
