Destroyit 4005 SMC High Security Paper Shredder Review

Destroyit 4005 SMC NSA / CSS High Security Level 6 Paper ShredderAre you with the government, Department of Defense or military and need an NSA/CSS EPL-02-01-AA approved paper shredder with the ability to shred top secret documents? One model you should seriously consider is the Destroyit 4005 SMC high security paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

Destroyit has been a favorite shredder of the U.S. government for years. This is due in part to their compliance to regulations and their dependability. Destroyit makes a wide variety of high security paper shredders as well that are NSA/CSS EPL-02-01-AA approved. These shredders are frequently used by the DOD, military and other U.S. government organizations.

The Destroyit 4005 SMC , also known as the 4014-2 SMC, is a level 6 paper shredder. This means it is designed for shredding confidential and top secret information. The acronym SMC stands for super micro cut. Paper cut by the 4005 SMC gets turned into particles that measure in at 0.8 x 5mm (1/32″ x 3/16″). That is extremely small.

It is capable of shredding up 12-16 sheets of paper at a time. Considering the small particle cut, this is considered a high shredding capacity. The 59 gallon bin holds a lot of paper and means fewer bag changes. The cabinet is made from durable wood and sits on casters, making it easy to move the 4005 SMC from one room to another.

Maintenance on the 4005 SMC is simple. Because it has a built-in automatic oiler, the 4005 SMC is able to run at peak performance throughout the day. The oiler is a great feature and means this shredder can run continuously throughout the day without any special attention. A powerful single-phase motor assists continuous operation.

The 16-inch wide feed opening is able to shred most paper sizes and is wide enough to prevent annoying paper jams. The electronic capacity control (ECC) helps to cut down on paper jams as well by indicating the sheet capacity level during the shredding process.

Overall I give the Destroyit 4005 SMC high marks. The build quality is excellent, it is extremely easy to use and it is reliable. You can’t ask for much more in a high security paper shredder.
