Top 6 Best Heavy-Duty Paper Shredders

Heavy Duty Paper ShreddersIf your office is shredding volumes of paper on a daily basis, you shouldn’t be using a department store shredder. These small shredders quickly burn out, overheat and simply die as a result of overuse. If you are worried about your paper shredder prematurely wearing out, or if you simply want the best heavy-duty shredder available, you should seriously consider using one of the six models I will be listing in this article. You can find our entire selection of heavy-duty shredders here.

There are six requirements that I feel a heavy-duty office paper shredder should meet. These are:

  1. A quite motor to prevent office interruptions.
  2. A thermally protected continuous duty motor for use throughout the day.
  3. At least a 30-gallon shred bin.
  4. At least a level 3 cross cut shred pattern.
  5. The ability to cross cut shred at least 30 sheets of paper or more at a time.
  6. At least a 16″ wide shred throat.

Now that I have listed the criteria I feel you should have in a heavy-duty shredder, here are a few models that I recommend. These are listed in ascending order based on price.
