Choosing a Shredder


There are many variables to consider when purchasing a paper shredder, including capacity, motor size, and waste volume. The following questions will help you narrow down your selection.

 

How much will you be shredding each day?


How frequently you shred confidential documents has a significant bearing on which machine will fit your needs. While all machines can handle daily and weekly shredding, our larger shredders are better suited for monthly and quarterly shredding of large volumes of material.

How many people will be using the shredder?


The number of people using a shredder and their individual requirements can vary greatly. Try to obtain an idea of the collective needs of your team or department to base your decision on. The larger the Dahle shredder is, the more users it was designed for, and the greater the waste volume it can hold.
