Just toss in up to 500 standard letter size sheets of paper, shut the lid, and this Cross-Cut Shredder automatically cross-cut shreds each sheet into 377 shredded pieces, leaving you free to do more with your day than just shred paper. Manual bypass shreds folded or crumpled paper, glossy sheets, legal size, and thick paper and also lets you feed up to eight sheets for on-the-spot shredding. Durable self-oil and self-clean cutters slice through credit cards, paper clips and staples. Whisper quiet operation lets you work uninterrupted while it shreds. Shredder offers automatic cooldown with LED indicator, energy saving power-save mode with automatic wakeup, automatic jam clearance and manual reverse. Includes 21 gallon pull-out wastebasket with viewing window. Use with paper bags made from recycled paper (sold separately) for easy emptying and recycling. Casters provide easy mobility.
