this HSM ShredStar PS817C shredder is designed for personal or home offices. The level 3/P-4 security protects personal information by breaking down documents into 5/32" x 1 3/8" particles and producing 430 pieces per page destroyed. User-friendly at its core, the ShredStar PS817C offers a power button and forward and reverse functions. LED indicators will display if an overload occurs. JamStop Anti-Jam technology recognizes a paper overload and automatically switches the unit into reverse. The machine runs in reverse in order to force the jammed paper out. Mounted on casters for extra convenience, the HSM ShredStar PS817C weighs a reasonable 35 lbs. With compact dimensions, document destruction can be literally at your fingertips. Place this shredder either next to or underneath or desk. Instead of piling up documents for months, simply shred at that moment! While shredding paper is most likely the priority, the HSM ShredStar PS817C offers an independent slot for feeding credit cards and CDs/DVDs. The sturdy cutting cylinder rips through documents and these plastic materials with ease. When the 7 gallon shred bin reaches full capacity, an LED indicator illuminates to alert the operator. It is recommended the bin not become overloaded to prevent overflow and other malfunctions. Never worry about skyrocketing energy bills with this HSM ShredStar PS817C. The Energy Management Control System lowers power consumption by up to 90% when the unit is in stand-by mode.

Instead, the PS817C emits low noise levels during operation, close to a near whisper. The respectable sheet capacity, energy-efficient and whisper-quiet features, and compact design make the HSM ShredStar PS817C an ideal match for your home or private office space.
