ProductDescription

In today's society there's nothing more critical than the accumulation of large volumes of confidential waste. A company's financial records, health information or personnel records can be seen by all if not shredded immediately. This Dahle High Capacity Shredder is just the tool to destroy large quantities of paper in a short amount of time. The Dahle 20452 is our largest shredder with the ability to shred up to 85/100 sheets of paper at a time. This hopper style unit is driven by a powerful 3 horsepower motor and intended to shred up to 2 tons of paper per day. Metal construction makes this shredder extremely durable and with the addition of three fold out tables, stacking paper to be shred is now more convenient. These gentle giants are surprisingly quiet for their size and their user friendly controls make them easy for anyone to operate. For safety purposes, these machines feature a special locking mechanism to prevent injury and unauthorized use. This machine will fit nicely in a company mail room or any other centralized location where large amounts of shredded material is taken. Expensive shredding services are no longer needed with the ability to hold 50 gallons of shredded confidential waste. Not to mention the confidence in knowing your documents are immediately destroyed and can no longer be seen by others.

If you want a big shredding machine to withstand shredding all day—well, check out the Dahle 20452 High Capacity Shredder.

To let you know how serious it is, you can’t plug it in to a standard wall socket because it is heavy duty!

To start, firmly push in the black button at the top.

To start feeding pages in, push the forward green button.

For safety purposes, opening the glass cover stops the machine from running. It quickly and easily shreds pages.

For small stacks, easily slide them into the slit in the front.

But this is made especially whole bins of crinkled paper. It took about two and a half minutes to get through this pile.

Like a rotisserie oven, it’s set it, forget it, and keep dumping more in!

Compared to all the shred types, this creates the lowest level of security trimmings.

But documents are rendered unreadable, especially if they were crinkled beforehand.

The safety shield will stay propped up in it’s highest position.

And the big button on the right is an emergency stop, afterwards you’ll need keys to start the machine again.

There are three collapsable trays in the front for storing and for continuous feeding purposes.

Prop them up like so.

Twist the nuts if you find your trays are not level enough until they are.

Inside is a roll away bin for easy transportation to the recycle bin.

There is no playing around with this shredder—though it is fun to use!

Dahle 20452 Level 2 Strip Cut High Capacity Paper Shredder Review

Dahle's largest shredder is designed for the very highest volume users, such as large company mail rooms or other business services. We took a look at the features of the 20452 and compiled a list of what we consider to be this machine's strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths:

  1. As Dahle's largest shredder, the 20452's most obvious strength is its huge capacity. With its powerful 4 Hp motor, the 20452 is capable of shredding up to 100 sheets at a time at 41 feet per minute, which all adds up to an astonishing 2 tons of paper a day. This capacity is more than enough for even the highest volume users including large corporate mail rooms, business services, and other such environments. The hopper-style feed is 17 inches wide, and really increases productivity compared to the normal type of vertical or horizontal paper feed.
  2. This looks to be an extremely durable machine, made of all metal and is clearly intended to be used heavily on a daily basis if necessary. There are three very convenient workspace shelves on which you can stack your documents during the shredding process. This is a machine that is designed for constant use, and perhaps to take the place of an outside shredding service.
  3. The control panel is very easy to use, and features fully automatic operation as well as a lock and key system that helps prevent accidents by keeping anyone who is not authorized to use the machine from doing so. This is a great feature for a busy work environment.
  4. With such a high volume shredder, you will want a shred bin that is large enough to cut down on the number of trips you'll have to make to the recycle bin. The 20452 comes through with a 50 gallon bin that slides out on rollers for easy access and emptying. You can even purchase bin liners that will make the process that much easier.
  5. The cutting heads, just like all of those featured on Dahle shredders, are milled from the finest steel from Germany. The cutting heads of the 20452 are also guaranteed for the life of the machine, and the rest of the 20452's parts are covered for two years. The heads are operated by an extremely powerful and rugged gear and chain system that pretty much eliminates the kind of slipping that can lead to paper jams.

Weaknesses:

  1. In the world of shredders, there is always a balance between capacity and security. As a Level 2 security strip cut shredder, the 20452 does not offer the highest security and may thus be best used for general rather than confidential or sensitive document shredding. In order to be FACTA compliant, for instance, you will need a machine that offers a security level of 3 or higher. Dahle makes several such shredders, but none with quite the capacity of the 20452. You will have to decide what is the right balance for the needs of your business.
  2. The 20452 is an extremely heavy volume, high capacity machine, and as such needs a lot of power. To operate the 20452 you will need to have 208 VAC 3 phase 20 amp service in the area in which you intend to place the machine. This is not a weakness per se, just something you should be aware of. You will also need to consider how you are going to transport and install this system in your organization. The last thing you will want to have happen is to have the shredder show up just to find out that it won't fit through your door.
