Cohen This shredder has done a great job of destroying my confidential documentation. Despite its performance, I do have a few issues with the shredder. This shredder is not known for its productivity. It does a great job of protecting sensitive information, but it only shreds about 5 sheets at once. Depending on the job, this shredder can be a burden or an asset. It is a level 6 security shredder, but it is a little expensive. The cost was double the price of other level 3 security shredders. I am very pleased with this machine although it cost me a great deal of money. As I unpacked the machine, I noticed the strong, study structure of this shredder. It weighs about 242 pounds. The bin is made of a durable material that I expect to last a very long time. I am pleased with the stainless steel blades as well. I shred a number of green bar computer printouts so the 16-inch feeding opening easily accommodates my office needs. The FD 8500HS is a well-powered machine with many safety options. I am pleased to say that the cutting blades shred at thirty-nine feet per minute. The shredder stops automatically when the waste bin is full, or if I accidentally open the door. The shredder is easy to use and maintain. Perhaps the best benefit it that it is NSA approved for its high level of security. This is a great buy for those who need to use this shredder occasionally instead of daily.

    Customer Testimonials

    "Julie Coontz was very knowledgeable about all the paper shredders I had questions about. She sent me quotes in a timely manner and was very friendly. Corporate Aircraft will be calling her for all our office machine needs. Thanks Julie! "


    "I was impressed with your customer service. We just purchased a large shredder for our department and needed assistance with locating the correct part number. We used the online chat and the person was quick and gave us the information I needed. He first gave a wrong part number, however corrected himself within a short period of time and made me feel like he cared. We will use your business in the future and look forward to a long history."
