Designed for personal or home office use, the HSM Classic 102.2 Strip Cut shredder handles your unnecessary paperwork with ease. Tearing through 18 documents at one time, the German-made, 100% solid steel cutting cylinder transforms your sheets into 1/4" strips. These cutting rollers are wear-resistant, promising years of service. The 9" throat opening is perfectly sized for feeding standard copy paper.

The level 2/P-2 strips fall directly into the removable shred bin, which holds up to 5.7 gallons of waste. Check shred levels by simply peeking through the inspection window located on the front of the unit. To prevent possible overflow, the Classic 102.2 will automatically halt operation when the bin reaches full capacity. The rocker switch controls on/off functions, and features an integrated reverse mode. Overload the paper shredder? To remedy this problem, run the unit in reverse until the jammed paper is forced out.
