In-Depth Review of the DestroyIt 4005 3/32” Cross Cut Shredder
The DestroyIt 4005 3/32” Cross Cut Shredder appears to be a solid machine with very
competitive specs relative to the competition. Used properly I’m not sure why you wouldn’t have
this machine for quite some time. Below we break down the individual specs.
This shredder sports a level 4 security which means that no one is going to be able to read your
documents. A level 3 in generally sufficient for most environments but the level 4 provides that
extra level of security. An added bonus with this machine is that because the shreds are
smaller, they take up less space so you’ll be able to shred more paper before you have to dump
out the bin. This will save you time and money (when it comes to bags).
The DestroyIt 4005 3/32” Cross Cut Shredder can shred CDs, Credit Cards, Paper, Paper Clips,
Staples. If you need to be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at a
larger machine and/or look for something with a little bit lower security (the higher the security
the less likelihood that the machine shreds something other than paper).
This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means that theoretically you could shred
all day long and the machine would not have to shut-down to cool off. Remember that results
may vary under real-world operating conditions and things such as the temperature of the room
will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool and continue to shred. We give this machine 2
pats on the back for being rated continuous duty and we know that you’ll appreciate this feature
in due time.
With a 59 gallon bin the DestroyIt 4005 3/32” Cross Cut Shredder is going to take quite some
time to fill up unless you are shredding non-stop. Your bags will be pretty heavy so go ahead
and cut off your gym membership to save a little bit of money. Just make sure every time you
empty the bin that your machine is getting enough oil!
