Destroyit 4002 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Destroyit 4002 Cross Cut Paper ShredderI just spoke to a guy on the phone today who was commenting to me about how much he hates to wait for his shredder to cool down every 20 minutes before he can use it again. Unfortunately this person had purchased a paper shredder that was woefully inadequate for his needs. If your office is in need of a solid departmental-level paper shredder, the Destroyit 4002 (found here) is an excellent option. We actually have one of these shredders in our building here at ABC Office and I have used it on many occasions. I would like to share my feedback and experiences with you.

The very customer I spoke about earlier continued on to ask me which paper shredder brand I would personally recommend. I explained to this customer that one of my personal favorite lines is the Destroyit line. He then said, “What makes this shredder any better than the others out there?” I went on to explain that Destroyit paper shredders are German engineered and German built, which gives them a huge leg up on many other brands. To be frank, German paper shredders are the pinnacle of the paper shredding industry.

The Destroyit 4002 is a departmental paper shredder to its core and is one of my personal favorites for use in an office by several people throughout the day. It uses a thermally protected motor that allows it to run all day without overheating. The cross cut version, which I have personally used, can shred anywhere from 24-26 sheets of paper at a time, which is more than adequate for most businesses. The 1 ¾ horsepower motor doesn’t stutter and shreds the paper at a speed of 25 feet per minute into 3/16” x 1 ½” particles. This particular shredder is a Level 3 (P-4 on the new scale).

Because this shredder is designed to be used throughout the day, it comes equipped with a massive 44-gallon shred bin. I have personally shredded boxes of material in a single sitting with this shredder without filling the bag. I LOVE not having to continually empty this shredder over and over again. It can be used to shred paper, credit cards and CDs. Be cause it is built with hardened steel cutting shafts, it also accepts staples and paper clips without missing a beat. After an hour of inactivity, it will go into an energy saving mode.

One thing I really like about this shredder is how quiet it is. Cross cut shredding paper requires a lot of cutting and effort on the part of the shredder. Many comparable models out there sound like a lawn mower or a wood chipper. Nobody wants to hear that grinding / whirring noise in the office. This shredder is comfortably quiet. Having used it many times, I really think you could use this right next to a group of professionals in the office without annoying them.

You can’t jam this shredder, which I love. While it shreds 24-26 sheets of paper at a time, who is going to sit around and count out each sheet? This shredder can detect the stress being put on the motor. If it is fed over capacity, it will stop and back out the paper rather than continue to run (which burns the motor out on other ill equipped shredders).

The control panel on the Destroyit 4002 is as simple as a round rocking button. Tilt it forward to turn it on and tilt it forward again to turn it off. Tilt it back to put the shredder into reverse. LED lights built into the button will also alert you when the shredder is full, door is open and more. The wide 16” throat on this shredder includes a safety shield which prevents dangerous access to the shredding blades. To top it all off, this shredder rests on casters, making it easy to wheel around the office.

I love this shredder. Can you tell by my review? You will not be disappointed with this shredder in an office setting. It really is that good.

If you have more questions about this shredder, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-658-8788. We would love to help answer your questions. Because this is in our office, we can also provide you with a live video demonstration over the Internet if you would like to see it in action. You can find the Destroyit 4002 paper shredder here and our entire selection of paper shredders here.

We are an authorized MBM Destroyit dealer and have a fully staffed Service Department that can help you out with every little detail on your shredder. They can service it for you, find someone in your local area to service it for you or provide you with parts and supplies as needed.

Thank you for reading my review. If you own one of these shredders, please post your experience at the end of this article in the form of a comment. Thanks for reading!

Top 10 Best Office Paper Shredders of 2013

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Best Paper Shredders 2013Office paper shredders need to be able to put up with a lot of daily use. You don’t want an office shredder that’s going to require a cool down time, period. For an office, you need something that is tough, time tested and capable of holding up for years. At ABC Office, we offer a huge selection of office paper shredders (found here). Many of these shredders are excellent products, however, I would like to point out 10 that have truly proven themselves as “best shredders” for 2013.

I have come up with criteria of 5 features you need to have in a solid office paper shredder.

  • Bin Size – I recommend you get a paper shredder that has at least a 10 gallon capacity. The larger the bin, the less you are going to have to empty it. I would put 10 gallons as the minimum size for an office.
  • Throat Size – I generally recommend you go with a paper shredder that has a throat width that is at least 10″. The first model I am going to recommend is 9.5″, but the rest are 10″ or wider. A 10″ throat width easily accommodates letter-size paper and the added width helps prevent jams.
  • Security – I recommend you use a paper shredder that uses a cross cut shredding pattern. I have found that a Level 3 is more than adequate security for most businesses.
  • Sheet Capacity – When it comes to sheet capacity, I recommend you buy a shredder that handles at least 10 sheets of paper at a time if not more.
  • Continuous Duty – I never recommend a shredder with a cool down period. I find it a nuisance and often a sign of cheap construction. I recommend you buy a shredder with a continuous duty motor that is thermally protected. All of the shredders I am going to recommend have continuous duty motors.

Top 10 Best Office Paper Shredders of 2013 – These are listed in order of price.

  1. Dahle CleanTEC 41214 (found here) – This shredder is compact and perfect for use with a small department of people. It is extremely quiet, is energy efficient and helps cut down on dust. It is German built and is a solid piece of equipment.
  2. Destroyit 2604 CC (found here) – This is a very affordable paper shredder, especially when you consider what it does. It has a nice 26-gallon bin, is energy efficient, has a Level 3 cross cut pattern and is German made. This shredder sits nicely next to a wall and can be used by several different people throughout the day.
  3. HSM B34 Securio (found here) – This shredder is has capacity, speed and security. The German made Securio line of shredders from HSM are all solid pieces of equipment. This particular model features a Level 4 security and has a nice 26.4 gallon shred bin.
  4. Formax FD 8400 (found here) – This paper shredder has a nice 12.2″ wide opening and is remarkably affordable considering the cross cut version can handle up to 18 sheets of paper at a time. This shredder is also fast, operating at 30 feet per minute.
  5. Destroyit 3104 CC (found here) – This is a great small to medium-duty paper shredder. It has a 12″ opening and can be used to shred on a continuous basis. A 32 gallon bin holds a lot of paper and this shredder is rated as a Level 3.
  6. Destroyit 3804 CC (found here) – This is one of the most affordable Destroyit shredders that includes a wide 16″ shredding width. This German-made paper shredder is solid and features an extremely easy-to-use control interface. It is safe and powerful, making it an excellent choice for most offices.
  7. Destroyit 4002 CC (found here) – Destroyit paper shredders, by Ideal, are German build and feature hardened steel shredder blades. A huge 44 gallon shred bin and a 16″ wide throat means this shredder will handle just about any size of paper and won’t need to be changed very often. This is an excellent departmental paper shredder.
  8. HSM Securio P40C (found here) – This is one of HSM’s most well rounded heavy-duty office shredders. It has a 13″ shed width, an 18 sheet per minute speed and can handle 35-37 sheets of paper at a time. IT can also handle CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, floppy disks and credit cards. It is extremely quiet and features V-TEK hardened rollers.
  9. Formax FD 8650CC (found here) – This shredder can safely be categorized as a heavy-duty office shredder. It is designed for daily operation and can hold up to 53 gallons of paper! It includes an AutoOiler, which means you don’t need to remember to oil it. This shredder can handle most sizes of paper (up 16″ wide) and is blazing fast at 30 feet per minute.
  10. Destroyit 4005 CC (found here) – If you need power, combined with sold German engineering, the Destroyit 4005 is the shredder to have. This shredder is powerful, with a 16″ wide throat and a 59-gallon shred bin. It is available in a Level 3 or Level 4 cross cut pattern. This shredder will easily service an entire building and will keep up with your daily shredding needs.

So there you have it! These are 10 extremely tough cross cut paper shredders that are excellent options for an office. Unlike many cheap department store shredders, these are build to hold up and last for years.

If these shredders are out of your price range, but you would still like something that is tough, you may want to consider the Destroyit 2360 (found here). This shredder is still tough and is an excellent choice for use by a few people throughout the day. I also highly recommend most shredders from Dahle, HSM and Destroyit.

If you still have questions about a paper shredder for your office, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-658-8788. We have decades of experience with paper shredders and should be able to help you out. You will find our entire selection of paper shredders here.

The Gloves Are Off – Intimus Vs. Destroyit Paper Shredders

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Destroyit Paper ShreddersIf you are a business, government agency or military organization and are looking for the best paper shredder around, you have probably run across the names Intimus and Destroyit (found here). Both brands of paper shredders have been around for decades. So when the dust clears, which of these two models should you ultimately consider using? Having used dozens of models from both manufacturers, I have my favorite and I’d like to explain why.

Before I explain my personal preference, I’d like to say that both Intimus and Destroyit make good shredders. Years ago Intimus was run by a German company called Schleicher. Back then Intimus was easily one of my favorite paper shredder brands. Several years ago they were bought out by Martin Yale. While Intimus is still a great brand, they have changed a little from what they once were.

Destroyit paper shredders are made by Ideal Krug & Priester and have been made in Germany since 1951. They are distributed in the USA by MBM Corporation. The continuity in German manufacturing and quality engineering has resulted in Destroyit being one of the most preferred names in the paper shredding industry.

So if I were lined up in front of an equally capable Intimus and Destroyit shredder, which one would I choose? Based on customer satisfaction and personal experience, I would have to pick Destroyit hands down. Over the years, Destroyit has simply developed into one of the most solid paper shredder brands around.

Here are a few reasons why I would consider Destroyit over Intimus:

  • Quality – Destroyit shredders continue to be made using the same high-quality standards that have been used for decades. The cutting shafts are made entirely of hardened steel and feature a lifetime warranty. Quality management by Destroyit is certified under DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 standards. Do I consider Destroyit shredders to be of better quality than Intimus? Yes, I do.
  • Simplicity – Have you ever used a paper shredder that had buttons and lights all over it that looked as if it was from a sci-fi movie? That can be very frustrating. Destroyit shredders, on the other hand, are EXTREMELY easy to use. The controls on their office are all contained in a simple rocker button. That button lets you turn on the shredder and put it in reverse. That same button also includes warning and indicator lights.
  • Safety – Destroyit paper shredders are by far some of the safest available. I especially like the transparent safety shield that they include in the feed opening. While I still recommend using common sense while operating a shredder, I don’t feel unsafe at all while operating a Destroyit shredder.

Here are some Destroyit paper shredders that I personally recommend:

  • Destroyit 2360 (found here) – This is one of the most affordable Destroyit paper shredders that features the new rocker button design that I absolutely love.
  • Destroyit 2604 (found here) – This is a great all-around office paper shredder. It is available in a strip or cross cut version and includes an automatic oiler.
  • Destroyit 2604 SMC (found here) – This is an excellent Level 6 high security paper shredder. It is a solid machine and includes an automatic oiler.
  • Destroyit 3105 (found here) – If you need a great departmental paper shredder that can be used by multiple people in the office throughout the day, this is the shredder for you.
  • Destroyit 4005 SMC (found here) – This is a great high-end high security Level 6 paper shredder. If you don’t want to fork out a lot of money for the Intimus 0077SL, this is a great alternative.

Hopefully this has helped you determine the right shredder for your office. You can find our entire selection of Destroyit paper shredders here and Intimus paper shredders here. If you still have questions about Intimus or Destroyit paper shredders, please feel free to call us at 1-800-658-8788.

MBM Destroyit 2604 Paper Shredder Video Demo

Friday, October 7th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 2640 Paper ShredderIf you were to ask me what my favorite mid-volume office paper shredder is, I would have to answer with the Destroyit 2604 from MBM. This paper shredder is one of the most solid machines I have used and I personally use it to shred my own documents. Having used this shredder for over a year now, I can attest to its excellent build quality, reliability and value. We were able to shoot a video demo of it about a week ago.

There are many reasons why Destroyit shredders are considered to be the best office paper shredders. As mentioned earlier, the build quality is unprecedented. The 2604 is German engineered and German built. The quality really shines through. I have used paper shredders from China, Korea the USA and many other places and German shredders continue to be my favorite.

The build quality on this shredder is amazing. The cabinet is made from solid wood construction and the shredder head features sound insulation, thermal protection and hardened steel blades. The cabinet is easy to access, the bin is easy to empty and the entire shredder sits on casters, making it easy to wheel around the office. I can see 6-8 people being able to use this thing through the day without any problems.

You can buy the 2604 in a cross cut or a strip cut design. The Level 3 cross cut is my personal favorite as it brings added security (tinier particles), yet still has a nice 20-22 sheet cutting capacity. I would like to mention that this shredder is fast.

This is a video demo of the MBM Destroyit 2604 cross cut in action:

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

The bin on this shredder is 26 gallons, which means it will hold a lot of paper. I especially like the automatic oiler. While oiling a shredder is important, it is extremely easy to forget to do it. The auto oiler on this shredder keeps things lubed at all times. A few of the features include:

  • “SPS” (Safety Protection System) package
  • Automatic reverse and power cut-off (avoids paper jams)
  • Automatic power cut-off when shred bin is full or when cabinet door is opened
  • “ESM” (Energy Saving Mode) after 1 hour of inactivity
  • Automatic start and stop controlled by photo cell
  • “ECC” (Electronic Capacity Control): Indicates sheet capacity levels
  • Shreds staples, paper clips, credit cards, and CDs (strip- and cross-cut models)
  • Sturdy “twin drive system” with dust-proof gear box housing
  • 26 gallon shred volume (approximate)
  • An automatic oiler is included for optimal performance.

So there you have it! One of my favorite paper shredders. You can find the MBM Destroyit 2604 paper shredder here and our entire selection of Destroyit paper shredders here.

MBM Destroyit 2404 Paper Shredder Review

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

MBM Destroyit Deskside Paper ShredderA professional and customer-oriented business will use a paper shredder when handling sensitive documents. A good reliable office shredder should meet a few solid requirements. This includes reliability, high sheet capacity, a good security level and the ability to shred paper on a continuous basis. One shredder that hits every one of these marks is the MBM Destroyit 2404 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

If you’ve read any of my paper shredder reviews, you probably know that I am a huge fan of Destroyit paper shredders. I have personally used dozens of different paper shredders and the German engineered Destroyit paper shredders continue to do exactly what I need. Destroyit, by MBM, makes shredders in sizes that range from deskside to industrial designs.

The MBM Destroyit 2404 is available in two different designs. This includes a strip cut and a cross cut model. While the cross cut version is by far the most popular, the strip cut is still a great shredder. The biggest differences between the two are the sheet capacity and the security level.

MBM Destroyit 2404 Sheet Capacities:

  • 2404 Strip Cut: 19 to 22 sheets of paper at a security level 2 (3/16″ wide strips).
  • 2404 Cross Cut: 9-11 sheets of paper at a security level 3 (3/32″ x 5/8″ particles).

The Destroyit 2404 features a 9 ½” wide opening for paper. This is wide enough to handle envelopes, letter-size and legal-size documents, receipts and much more. It can even be used to shred wider computer forms paper if they are first folded in half. The powerful ¾ horsepower motor doesn’t stutter, handling fed paper with gusto.

This shredder is extremely easy to operate. The “Easy Switch” rocks back and forth to turn the shredder on, put it in reverse and turn it off. A series of color codes and backlit symbols let you know exactly what’s going on.

The Destroyit 2404 is almost completely automated. A built-in photo cell detects paper, turning the shredder on and off by itself. Sensors also let you know when the bag is full and the door is open. For a deskside shredder, these features are all welcome.

This is a video of the MBM Destroyit 2404 in use:

One of my favorite features of the Destroyit 2404 is the large 13-gallon shred bin. This is a fairly large and significant capacity for a deskside shredder. This means fewer bag changes for you.

The shredder itself is made from high quality components. This includes hardened steel cutting shafts that are covered by a lifetime warranty. The shredder head sits in a noise absorbing wooden cabinet that sits on casters and the gars are all enclosed in a dust-proof housing, which significantly extends the life of the shredder. The motor is thermally protected for continuous use (no need to worry about overheating).

In conclusion, I have to say that the Destroyit 2404 (Cross Cut or Strip Cut) is a great choice for use in the office. While it is a deskside shredder, multiple people can easily use it throughout the day. I highly recommend this shredder.

What is a Hopper Fed Paper Shredder?

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Hopper Feed Paper ShreddersDo you use, own or want a paper shredder but don’t want to hassle with jogging paper together to try and fit it all through a tiny slot on the top of a shredder? If this scenario sounds familiar to you, you may need what’s known as a hopper fed  paper shredder. These shredders are versatile and often ideal for office environments.

Hopper fed paper shredders are commonly used for office and departmental use as they are designed to be used by multiple people throughout they day. These types of paper shredders essentially feature a top loading feed hopper that sits above the paper shredders blades. They are typically designed for high-volume / continuous use.

The top loading feed hopper allows you to empty jumbled, disorganized and crumpled paper into the shredder. Some of these shredders allow you to dump an entire stack of paper, while other feed hopper shredders have a separate slot for stacks of paper. The hopper is often assisted by paddles that help pull paper into the shredder blades.

Shredders with feed hoppers are typically ideal for high-volume paper shredding and are known for their convenience. Because the hopper can take crumpled and jumbled paper, there is no need to tray and straighten or align paper prior to being fed into the shredder.

At ABC Office we offer a few different hopper-style shredders. Here are the four most popular models we offer:

  1. HSM 412.2 Office Hopper Fed Shredder
  2. Destroyit 4605 High-Volume Top Loading Feed Hopper Shredder
  3. Dahle 20452 and 20453 Strip and Cross Cut Hopper Shredders
  4. Intimus 852CC Industrial Top Loading Hopper Style Paper Shredder

Hopper fed shredders often accept entire magazines, newspaper and other paper. Some, like the Intimus 852CC industrial shredder, have hoppers that can even accept CDs, DVDs, credit cards, 3.5″ disks, passports, ID cards, Microfiche, audio cassettes and more.

This is a demo of the Destroyit 4605 high-volume hopper fed shredder.

I hope this helps you understand exactly what a top loading hopper fed paper shredder is. These shredders are convenient, great for high-volume shredding and are typically extremely fast. You can find our entire selection of paper shredders here.

MBM Destroyit 3104 Cross Cut Paper Shredder (Level 3) Review

Friday, May 27th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 3104 Cross Cut Paper ShredderWhen shopping for a paper shredder, chances are that you want something that’s affordable, a great value and reliable. It is possible to find the right shredder that hits all the points your business needs. One great option for a small business or organization is the Destroyit 3104 cross cut paper shredder from MBM (found here). This review will cover its various qualities, specifications and if any, weaknesses.

If you’re new to the paper shredder industry, or are simply not familiar with MBM, let me get you up to speed. While there are a lot of “OK” brands out there, Destroyit is considered to be the “crème de la crème” of shredders. In other words, businesses and government entities that do a lot of shredding often go with the Destroyit shredders.

There are a lot of reasons why Destroyit shredders are so highly regarded, and the Destroyit 3104 cross cut shredder hits all these points. To begin with, the Destroyit 3104 is a German engineered and built shredder. This means it has been put together with the highest-quality parts available, unlike many comparable shredders that are built with “budget” parts.

While I personally think any business would be happy with the Destroyit 3104 cross cut, it is best suited for use in small to medium-size businesses or as a departmental shredder. I would say this shredder could easily be used constantly throughout the day by 5-10 people without a problem. By constant, I am referring to heavy use.

The MBM Destroyit 3104 utilizes a thermally protected motor that is designed to be used continuously without suffering from overheating. Many shredders require a cool down period. Not so with the 3104. The 3104 uses a 1 horsepower (0.64 KW) single phase motor that runs on 110-120 volts of electricity. The motor is powerful, fast (18 feet per minute) and reliable.

I remember years ago when we used to tell customers to remove paper clips and staples (if possible) prior to shredding paper. The Destroyit 3104 uses a strong hardened steel cutting shaft that can easily handle staples and paper clips without suffering any damage. It can also be used to not only shred paper, but credit cards, DVDs and CDs as well. MBM is so confident in the cutting shafts that they are covered by a lifetime warranty.

The control panel on the Destroyit line of shredders, including the Destroyit 3104, is one of the easiest-to-use available today. IF you look at the picture, you will see a large round button. MBM calls this the “Easy Switch.” You can run pretty much every operation on this shredder from that button. It tilts to turn the shredder on or put it in reverse and built-in backlit symbols let you know the status of the shredder. This includes when the cabinet door is open and the bag is full.

This is a video demo of the Destroyit 3104 in use:

The throat on this shredder measures in at 12″, which is more than enough for most paper, forms and documents. The sheet capacity on this shredder is 22-25 sheets at a time, which is impressive for a level 3 cross cut shredder. Once shredded, paper is turned into tiny 3/16″ x 1 1/2″ (4 x 40 mm) particles. A large 32-gallon bin holds the shredded paper, which is pretty large. This means fewer bag changes for you!

Overall I have to give this shredder a solid 5 out of 5 stars. I am confident you will enjoy this shredder. It should provide you with years of reliable use.

MBM Destroyit 3804 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 3804 Cross Cut Paper ShredderWhat is it that you want in your office paper shredder? Most people would respond that they need speed, security, capacity and reliability. If these four points sound like something you need in a machine, consider looking at the MBM Destroyit 3804 cross cut paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

MBM Destroyit (known as IDEAL in Europe) have been making shredders for decades. One thing remains constant, their shredders are considered to be some of the best in the industry. Shredder designs and styles range from home office up to industrial shredding. The Destroyit 3804 is one of the latest additions to this tradition.

The MBM Destroyit 3804 cross cut shredder encompasses pretty much everything I would want in a paper shredder. Let me start with capacity. This shredder hits high capacities on just about every level.

To begin with, the Destroyit 3804 has a massive 44-gallon shred bin. Consider the fact that most cars have a 15-25 gallon gas tank. This shredder can hold about double that amount in shredded paper. This means much fewer bag changes for you and makes it possible for multiple people to use this shredder without the “Bag Full” indicator always being on.

Another “capacity” feature of this shredder is the wide capacity shredder throat. This machine can shred paper up to 16″ wide. That means you can shred a lot of small stuff or larger computer forms. Not only can you feed paper into this beast, but it can also handle shredding credit cards and CDs and will accept staples and paper clips without a hitch.

The next feature that impresses me is the speed. While the Destroyit 3804 cross cut already has an impressive 20-22 sheet shredding capacity, it can shred that paper at a speed of 20 feet per minute. That means you can shred over a football field’s length of 20-20 sheets in an hour. That’s just plain fast.

Also consider the fact that this shredder cuts paper down to a Level 3 security level, which is the most sought-after security level for office paper shredding. That means the Destroyit 3804 CC cuts paper into 3/16″ x 1 1/2″ (4 x 40 mm). Break out a ruler and measure that out. Small….right? You aren’t putting that back together.

Shredding speed, capacity and security all make this shredder perfect for departmental and centralized office shredding. Now let’s cover the “dependability” part of this review.

While I love stuff made in the USA, I have complete respect for German products. German shredders are THE benchmark when it comes to office paper shredders. From the hardened steel blades to the twin drive single-phase motor, this shredder is designed for heavy-use.

Even the motor has been thermally protected for continuous use. You will never have to wait 30 minutes for the motor to cool down with a Destroyit paper shredder.

In summary, you can do much better than a Destroyit paper shredder, and the Destroyit 3804 cross cut is one of the best options you have for office paper shredding. The build quality is excellent, it is reliable, secure and very fast. I use Destroyit shredders here at ABC Office and love them.

You can find the MBM Destroyit 3804 cross cut paper shredder here, our entire selection of Destroyit paper shredders here and our huge selection of all our paper shredders here.

Destroyit 0101 HDP (IDEAL) Hard Drive Destroyer Videos

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Destroyit / Ideal 0101 Hard Disk DestroyerToday I was frequenting a PC blog I like to read called PC Pro out of the UK. Today they had an article about hard drive destruction and they posted a video of them destroying a 185GB IBM Deskstar hard drive. As soon as they mentioned the machine they were using I got excited. They were featuring an Destroyit (IDEAL) 0101 HDP hard disk destroyer. As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Destroyit.

To begin with, for all you computer geeks out there, the model name alone is pretty cool (0101). Speaking of binary code, my wife thinks I’m a pretty big nerd because I have a binary clock I use at home. I’ll have to discuss that one in a later article. Anyway, back to the Ideal 0101. I had not previously heard about this model, but the video is very impressive. Let me explain.

The Destroyit (Ideal) 0101 HDP hard drive destroyer uses a metal punch that exerts between 2.5 and 3 tons of force. HDP stands for hard drive punch.This punch drives through either a 2.5″ or 3.5″ hard drive, rendering them useless. According to PC Pro, that is enough force to lift a truck. Once the drive is pierced, the drive is dropped into a bin for later disposal.  The green light used in the drive slot has an otherworldly glow to it.

Here is the Video PC Pro featured in their article:

Ideal Germany has also posted their own video of the hard disk destroyer, which features a few more details.

Overall I have to say that this little machine impresses me. I can’t wait until we add this machine to our site. You can find our entire selection of Destroyit paper shredders here.
