If you are seriously considering buying a paper shredder, then read our full guide for shredding machines. You will find more information about each point from the infographics and also reviews of specific products. We have tried many of them for you and compared them based on their quality, reliability, and price.
You should also look at the features they offer. Some of them increase the safety (e.g. automatic shutdown with a hand sensor) and others make the usage more comfortable, like silent engines or jam-free technologies.
Once you buy one, do not forget to take care of it. That means regular cleaning, oiling, and other maintenance as described in the vendor’s manual. Doing so will significantly extend your machine’s lifespan.
