Energy-efficient and whisper quiet, the HSM Securio P40 fits in any department and suits an entire office floor. The powerful continuous duty motor handles even under a constant load. Optimized for shredding up to 47 sheets at a time, the Securio P40 level 2/P-2 turns your documents into 1/8" strips. For those willing to test the accepted sheet capacity may be in for frequent paper jams. If the shredder does become overloaded, JamStop works to rectify the jam and restore smooth operation. The 100% solid steel cylinder is strong enough to handle staples and paper clips, as well as harder materials such as credit cards, CDs/DVDs, and floppy disks. A separate slot exists for feeding media, such as credit cards and CDs. By feeding these items into this slot, plastic and paper waste are kept separated. Shredded paper falls directly into the 40 gallon reusable shred bag for quick and easy disposal. Want to monitor shred level? Simply peer through the inspection window located at the front of the cabinet. Weighing in at 158 lbs., the Securio P40 is mounted on durable casters. These casters make it easier to relocate this machine throughout the department or office.
