Product Description

The Dahle 20394 high capacity micro cross cut paper shredder has a 16" feed opening and is driven by a powerful 2 horsepower motor. A solid steel frame houses and aligns two perfectly matched cutting cylinders milled from a single bar of German Solingen steel. It's this design that maximizes durability and minimizes flexing to produce a consistently fine 1/16" x 3/16" particle size.

This Dahle shredder uses the latest technology to offer full electronic capabilities such as automatic shutoff when the cabinet door opens and auto reverse to prevent an overfeed. Automatic on/off and bag full auto off are features that offer both convenience and satisfaction in knowing you will be notified when it's time to empty the box or change the bag. The Dahle 20394 is housed in a wooden cabinet with casters making it easy to move and position in its place of operation.

This Dahle high security shredder is a serious machine capable of reducing a single sheet of paper into over 15,500 tiny particles. These particles are so small that they have been rendered impossible to reassemble. The Dahle 20394 is NSA approved for NSA/CSS Specification 02-01.

Additional bags and oil are also available.
