The automatic reverse function allows you to easily clear paper jams and keep the shredder running smoothly. It also comes with a pullout 7-gallon bin with LED indicator lights.

This is my second Aurora. I broke the last one when I attempted to clean the blades. The first Aurora that I bought 10 plus years ago. The name Aurora was chosen due to the quality and quality of the product. The first one was approximately 90 dollars. It was microcut. This particular one is specially priced at $109. I have compared it to Bonsai 70 shredder, Aurora 90 shredder, and Boxis $120 shredder. I decided this one with all of it's features would be a nice upgrade. I am glad I spent the extra $20-40 because this shredder is excellent. Things to watch out for My only real warning is to be careful if you ever try to clean the blades. The last Aurora I have had, had wires and electronics close by the blades. If you plan to use them to clean out paper, do not use it. That is how I broke my first Aurora and this one has the same exposed wiring as my last one. In my opinion, Aurora should put better protection on all electronics. That is the only disadvantage I know of and a cause of warning to anyone purchasing Aurora paper shredders. Take care to clean paper out from the backs. You need to learn from my mistake. I have no opinion. This is not a microshredder. It's a crosscut. It cuts bits approximately one inch long by one inch wide. I do not believe anyone would attempt to assemble from hundreds of thousands of pieces. I believe that there is an individual out there that could and did, in some part of the planet, which became the reason for microshred or perhaps it came out for the most paranoid of us. Shreds are shredded fine enough to take a microshred. You need a five gallon pullout basket. If you are able you should consider getting bigger. Five gallon containers seems to be shorter than I thought they would. It will take no time to fill it up. It will not take thirty minutes to fill up the bin. I would not want to go much smaller. I cannot fit the longest envelopes in long ways, I have to turn them sideways. In addition, it sometimes seems to have trouble getting the motor to switch on automatically like you have to shove the paper way down in the mouth to get it to turn on. It is more noticeable with single ripped floppy pages and crinkled receipts. This is a running amusement. I can hear the TV and talk. The shredder was extremely loud. You cannot do anything else while running it. 3) When you get into a rhythm of shredding, this thing can run continuously for 30 minutes. The minimal cost of 5 minutes of continuous run time. It is easy to run a shredder for 10-15 minutes almost continuously when more than one individual is attempting to clean a pile of junk mail. I believe it is worth the little cost incurred to acquire the longer running professional motor. I like the 16 page capacity. My Aurora, which was probably a 10-page old thing, would get stuck mid-shred. This thing has yet to get stuck mid-shred. I have put two unopened envelopes through at once. My motor has continued to hum, but it has not stopped. I have not had this jam. I was able to pull hard enough with the Aurora to clean jams, but it made me worried a few times. I used enough paper to break the box and eventually broke it. One needs to use reason and patience in order not to interfere with it. Jams are scary. This unit has not yet jammed. It seems the unit will be difficult to jam but use your sense and do not overload it. I do not think it will jam since it takes a high capacity so it may be much harder to unjam than my old system, but it will shred. I am thinking ahead.

I really enjoy this shredder. It is the quietest shredder I have ever heard. I have this in my home because even though it is 2020, we still receive so much junk mail that I shred all of it. I had owned my previous cross cut shredder for probably ten years or more and I would be the first to admit that I have a tendency to over feed it. My husband had to unclog it because I had jammed it several times, so it worked well for as long as I had it. Patience is not my virtue. When I got this one, I knew I needed something that could handle eight sheets at once. We work different shifts in our family. So I have to stack the papers, shred everything, and wait until nobody is asleep to shred everything. I can shred anytime, day or night. My dishwasher is louder than this shredder, and it is probably time for a new dishwasher. The drawer on the front makes it easy to check how full and empty it is. It may be moved on wheels, I can do so with my foot, if need be. It is very convenient and easy.

It goes through junk mail like butter. Large credit card cards don't even have to open them, just insert into the slot and it chews them into tiny pieces. CDs, plastic cards, and staples are gone.

I ran it for approximately one hour and a half and we did not experience any issues.

We love this shredder. It felt expensive but we feel much better knowing we are taking measures to protect our identity by shredding paperwork and bills. We have not had any difficulty with it.

These shredders are ideal for shredding papers, CDs, and credit cards. Shredding papers, CDs, and credit cards is quick and easy with this 15 piece cross-cut paper shredder. It has a small footprint, making it easy to store.

This shredder was a surprisingly good value and quieter than I expected. The last one overheated and needed replacement. This shredder is good, it has an excellent constant run time and a nice overheat indicator light. I am always paranoid when purchasing anything electrical online. I fear it will not work properly and returning it will be a hassle. You will be satisfied to know that Amazon tests the paper shredder before shipping it to you.

I shred junk mail, like it is a part time job. Little Wheels is easy to work on my carpet. The unit is quite tall, but it fits comfortably under my desk, and it is not that high. Perhaps a little higher than your average banquet table. You can sit in your computer chair without bending so far to feed the shredder. I am of the opinion that this is a win on any day. I discovered that the three year old Walmart Special is loud and rumb, when I interacted with the man. I'm pleased about it. The shredder from hell has been removed from my collection. So far, it is a great product.

I had multiple files in a disorganized state to accomplish over the weekend. I'm not going to spend a fortune on a shredder. I've chosen this model. I was concerned that it would overheat, but it worked fantastically. In one day, I shredded about ten to twelve bins worth of waste. It never overheated. I was able to resolve that as I was able to push the 12sheet limit quite a few times. I wish the bin was larger, however I am very happy with this shredder. I believe it is excellent for the 50 dollar price.

I use it frequently to receive credit card offers but I do not test it with its full eightsheet capacity. I had lent a friend a old shredder and never received it back, so I finally got rid of the stack of mail that had been building up on my counter. After some research, I finally paid for the new unit. I prefer the crosscut version, my previous version incorporated the strips. This one is more secure, but I am not shredding secret government documents or million dollar bank statements. I attempted to shred a credit card, and although it slowed a bit, it handled it. You have to take it one step at a time. Even if some of them got fed into at an angle, it did not jam and everything went through perfectly. It does slow down a bit, but it is fine as long as it does not jam. The first day I received it, I used it for about a half hour and it did not overheat or shut off. I almost filled it on the first round and it was great. You can put bags in it, but since I only use it for paper, I simply empty it into my other recycle bag when it is full and ready to go out. The bags are recyclable, and I am trying to be more ethical about that. It can be used to make packing paper, as the shredded pieces would pack nicely around breakable items. You could shred some pretty colored paper and make your own stuffing for presents. There are many options, it seems that it is on a Pinterest board that people share about the subject. I am quite satisfied with the service, and recommend it. I am very much enjoying the Amazon brand.

I received it, and I have been chipping away. It does an excellent job. I have two acres and have enough falling branches to keep me busy. This is one that I would highly recommend. You will not be let down.

This product manufactures very thin pieces of wood from branches. It was difficult to use until I cut the branches down to single sticks. It then chugged along admirably. It is small and easy to store.

I was very pleased with the chipsper and shredder. It made quick work by clearing the branches. The easiest method for achieving a straight branch is to remove the small branches and make it straight. It produced nice chips and mulch for our landscaping. If you empty the bag frequently, it can clog up the machine.

Although it is small, it does what I need it to do. Also, dead branches are blown down by the wind. Some trees that merely appear out of thin air have no longer broken down into the size that would be required to be taken off the recycle bin. The bonus is being able to use the chips to place around flower beds.

We buy the items we need to shred because we use compost bins in our yard. The metal stand does not line up with the mounting screw, but other than that my husband loves it. It was a good value and easy to use. It's effective in shredding branches and clippings.

Buyer's Guide

How To Choose The Best Cardboard Shredder

Shredding documents is a great way to destroy sensitive information without leaving a trace behind. However, not everyone has the space or budget for a dedicated document destruction machine. If you have a lot of old papers piling up around the house, then you may want to invest in a cheap but effective alternative - a cardboard shredder. This article will help you decide whether a cardboard shredder is the right choice for you.

What Is A Cardboard Shredder?

Cardboard shredders are machines that cut up old newspapers, magazines, junk mail, and more into small pieces. They are useful for recycling purposes because they make it easy to separate recyclable materials from non-recyclables. Cardboard shredders come in many different sizes, shapes, and designs. You will find some models that are very large and bulky, while others are compact enough to fit in a desk drawer. There are even models that look like an ordinary trash compactor. The type of model you choose depends on how much space you have available, what size documents you want to shred, and whether you need a machine that is quiet or loud.

Where Should I Buy A Cardboard Shredder?

If you are looking for a reliable brand name, consider buying a shredder made by a company known for its quality products. If you are shopping around at discount stores, you may end up getting a cheap product that does not last long. Look for a manufacturer who offers a warranty on their products. This means that if something goes wrong with the machine, the manufacturer will repair or replace it free of charge.

Who Needs A Cardboard Shredder?

Paper shredding has become increasingly common over the past decade. People use it to protect sensitive information, destroy old documents, and recycle papers. But did you know that you could actually use a cardboard shredder to do these things?

In fact, you can purchase a cardboard shredder specifically designed to cut through corrugated cardboard. These machines are perfect for destroying confidential documents and other materials that shouldn't be kept around. They can also be used to dispose of unwanted mail and junk mail.

But how does a cardboard shredder work? Basically, it uses two blades to slice through the material. One blade cuts horizontally across the material while the second one slices vertically. Together, this creates a cross sectional shape similar to a pizza slice.

The result is shredded pieces that are smaller than normal. Because the machine doesn't pulverize the material, it's still possible to read the contents. However, it makes it harder to reassemble the material back into its original form.

These machines are usually found in offices where employees are required to shred confidential documents. But they're also useful in homes where people throw away large amounts of paper every week.

They're also ideal for recycling purposes. Most cities require residents to separate recyclable items from regular trash. If you live near a city that requires this, then you probably already have a cardboard shredder. Otherwise, you can easily order one online.

It's true that most companies offer free services to recycle paper. But if you'd rather save money, you can hire someone else to take care of the job.

This isn't cheap. But it's worth considering if you're throwing away a lot of paper each month. And it's definitely cheaper than hiring a professional shredder service.

Another advantage of using a cardboard shredder is that it's portable. Unlike traditional shredders, which must remain stationary, these machines can be moved anywhere.

That makes them ideal for home use. You can move them from room to room, depending on the amount of paper you're disposing of.

The Importance Of Purchasing A Quality Cardboard Shredder

If you have ever had to deal with shredded documents, then you understand how frustrating it can be to try to reassemble them. You may even find yourself tearing up because you just want to throw away those papers once and for all. Unfortunately, most people do not realize that they should not throw away their shredded documents until they've tried to reassemble them first. This is where a quality cardboard shredder comes in handy. A quality cardboard shredder will ensure that you never have to worry about having to go through the hassle of trying to reassemble shredded documents again.

A quality cardboard shredder will save you time and frustration by allowing you to easily shred large quantities of documents at one time. When you purchase a quality cardboard shredder, you'll notice that it will come with several different sizes of shredding discs. These discs will allow you to shred any type of document including credit cards, checks, envelopes, photographs, business records, etc. Once you start shredding, you won't believe how fast it goes. And since you won't have to stop and restack the pieces after every shred, you'll end up saving tons of time.

Another great thing about a quality cardboard shredder is that you won't have to worry about damaging your hands. Since the blades inside a quality shredder are sharpened, you won't have to worry about cutting yourself. Plus, if you accidentally drop the shredder onto a hard surface, the blades will protect the machine so that it doesn't break.

Finally, a quality shredder will provide you with peace of mind. After you use it, you'll wonder why you didn't buy one sooner. Quality shredders are built to withstand years of daily use. They will continue working properly regardless of whether you leave them plugged in or unplugged. So, when you invest in a quality shredder, you'll be able to enjoy the convenience and peace of mind that comes along with owning one.

Features To Consider When Buying A Cardboard Shredder

Shredding options. When you're looking for a cardboard shredder, you'll want to think about how many pieces of shredded material you'd like to receive. Some shredders only shred two sides of a piece of cardboard, while others can shred four sides. This means you'll get more shredded material if you buy a machine that has this option.

Size. The next thing you'll want to consider is the size of the shredder. Most shredders fall into three categories: mini, midi, and large. Each category provides varying levels of capacity. Mini shredders typically hold less than 10 pounds of shredded material, while larger models can hold up to 100 pounds. Midi shredders usually hold somewhere between these numbers.

Ease of operation. Another important consideration when shopping for a cardboard shredder is ease of operation. Many shredders feature automatic start/stop technology, which allows them to automatically shut off once they've reached their maximum capacity. Others allow users to manually stop the shredder whenever they wish.

Storage space. Shredders tend to take up quite a bit of storage space. While most machines do fit inside a cabinet, you may want to look for a model that takes up less room. Compact shredders often store shredded materials in bins rather than drawers, which makes them easier to access.

Cost. Finally, cost is another factor to consider when purchasing a cardboard shredder. Shop around to compare prices on various models and see what fits within your budget.

Different Types Of Cardboard Shredder

Shredding cardboard is a necessary part of recycling. When you recycle, you should always use a cardboard shredder to ensure that any sensitive information contained on the cardboard does not fall into the wrong hands. Shredders come in various sizes and shapes depending on what kind of material you plan on shredding. Here are some examples of the different kinds of shredders available.

Heavy Duty Shredders. Heavy duty shredders are meant for large pieces of cardboard. They are capable of handling up to 12 inches wide by 24 inches long sheets of cardboard. These machines are built to handle larger amounts of waste. Cardboard Shredders are also quite noisy and bulky.

Medium Duty Shredders. Medium duty shredders are smaller than heavy duty models. Cardboard Shredders are good for small quantities of shredded materials. These are also quieter and less bulky than heavy duty models.

Smaller Shredders. Smaller shredders are good for small quantities of shredded materials. Cardboard Shredders are quiet and compact. These are also affordable.
