This is the Dahle Level P-2 40406 Office Shredder!

Turning it on puts it in standby mode to automatically start and stop shredding up to an impressive 30 pages.

If you hold the forward button for a few seconds it will go into continuous feeding mode.

So now feed stack after stack until you’re finished.

The opening is 10 1/4 inches wide, which easily fits the smaller width of a standard page.

If you need to ever stop shredding—like for an emergency—hold the reverse button and pull your pages out.

And you don’t even have to worry about staples and paper clips, it’ll shred those too.

It is the lowest of all the security levels, but it still renders your documents unreadable.

Opening the bin we see a spot to store a bottle of oil.

And pulling out the bag and replacing it is simple.  Just wrap the bag around the square bar, then slip it into place.

Place the black tray in the center to catch CD trimmings.  Insert your CD and press the forward button. CD’s are not recyclable, that why it’s good to separate them.

When you find a good spot to put your shredder, lock the wheels so it stays there.

The automatic power features put it in sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity and shuts it off after 30.

Every once in a while pour oil onto a few of your pages before shredding to keep the machine in pristine shape!

Here is a list of accessories for Dahle shredders.

Dahle 40406 Office Level 2 Strip-Cut Paper Shredder Review

Every office can use a good strip-cut shredder that can withstand everyday use. If you are looking for a device like this, you should check out the Dahle 40406. This is a terrific shredder that has a lot of special features and it's incredibly durable. Here's a rundown of its strengths and weaknesses:

Strengths:

  • The 40406 can shred up to 34 sheets at a time, which is truly a phenomenal amount. All together, you should be able to destroy as many as 400 sheets per day with this machine. The motor is thermally protected so you don't need to worry about it overheating.
  • This shredder has a 10.25-inch feed opening so you can shred both large and small documents without any problems. The machine's cutters are durable enough to destroy some multimedia items like CD's and DVD's. You will also be able to shred credit/debit cards and documents that have staples and/or paper clips attached to them.
  • The 40406 has a SmartPower system that helps reduce power consumption in between shredding jobs. This feature not only helps you save power (and possibly a few bucks on your electric bill), it helps reduce wear and tear on the machine's motor.
  • This shredder has a 30-gallon waste bin, so it's perfect for sharing with a few of your co-workers. You can use gusseted shred bags to slightly increase the bin's capacity. Also, the bags make it easier to dispose of your shreds.
  • Using this machine is easy since the controls are right on top. You can pretty much just turn the shredder on and get going.
  • The 40406 has rubber shock mounts and a wooden cabinet. These features help muffle sound so you can shred your documents without annoying your co-workers.
  • Finally, this shredder's cutting cylinders are made out of solid German steel. They're backed by a lifetime warranty. The machine as a whole is covered for 2 years.

Weaknesses:

  • Since this is a strip-cut machine, it only offers level 2 security. This is a decent amount for the shredding of everyday documents but you should keep a cross- or micro-cut machine on-hand for more confidential documents.
  • The 40406 is going to take up a fair amount of room since it approximately measures 36.75" x 12.5" x 17.5". Luckily, there are casters on the bottom of it so it can be moved around somewhat easily. (The machine weighs 100 pounds.)

Overall, the Dahle 40406 is a terrific shredder for people who need a strip-cut shredder for office use. This machine offers an excellent shredding capacity, the ability to destroy stapled documents and some multimedia items, and it has a 30-gallon waste bin. The 40406 is nice and durable, plus it comes with excellent warranty coverage. The one major downside to using this device is that it doesn't offer a very high security rating. However, it's still suitable for everyday shredding. Check out the 40406 if it sounds like the right shredder for your office.
