The Destroyit 2404 Cross-Cut Shredder is the best deskside model available for everyday shredding. At security level four, the MBM Destroyit 2604 Cross-Cut Shredder can take up to 11 sheets of paper at a time and shred them at a swift 27 feet per minute. The 9.5" throat width fits standard sheets of paper and then some. Coming with a lifetime warranty from MBM, the high quality hardened steel cutting shafts take staples, CDs and paper clips. The shredder itself has a powerful single phase motor whose gears are inside a dust-proof enclosure. Manufactured out of high quality wood panels, the cabinet is mounted on casters for easy mobility around the office. The 2404 has several features that make it environmentally friendly. The automatic start and stop is controlled by a photo sensor, so the machine is never running when it’s not in use and electricity is never wasted. Also, the bag inside of the 13 gallon shred bin is reusable and more responsible than disposable bags. Last but not least, the Destroyit 2404 comes with the “SPS” (Safety Protection System) which makes shredding safer than ever before. A transparent protective shield covers the feed opening to prevent anything from unintentionally going into the shredder. Should the shield be lifted, exposing the feed opening, the power will automatically be cut off and the shredder will stop running. Along with this, the “Easy Switch” feature makes it simpler than ever to determine the operational status of the shredder. It has three LED-lit symbols that determine if there is a paper jam, open cabinet door or full shred bin, all of which cause the shredder to turn off. It also makes it easy to quickly reverse the feed or turn off the shredder altogether.
