Product Description

The Dahle 40406 office strip cut paper shredder offers a 10-1/4" feed opening and can shred up to 30/34 sheets of paper at a time. It features full electronic capabilities such as automatic shutoff when the cabinet door is open, and auto reverse to prevent an overfeed.

Dahle's strip cut paper shredder is made in Germany using the latest technology and finest materials. Each cutting cylinder is encased in an all-steel frame and sits on rubber shock mounts. It's this design that reduces vibration through the cabinet and provides whisper-quiet operation.
