Dahle 20606C Level 2 Strip Cut Office Paper Shredder Review

For most busy offices, a single shredder shared by all makes the most sense. One excellent device for this purpose is the Dahle 20606C Strip Cut Shredder. This machine is designed for medium use in a busy office, such as an advertising agency or a small print shop. It offers a powerful motor and high quality blades for efficient disposal of all your unwanted documents. In addition, automated features make it very user-friendly to operate. Here is a closer look at the 20606C.


  • After being switched on, use is mainly automated. A sensor detects items in the feed and turns the blades on automatically for shredding right when you need it. After everything is finished, the cutting shafts cease on cue so you aren’t wasting energy or causing excess wear by running the blades unnecessarily. If the shredder becomes jammed, slide the toggle switch to reverse and the items will be fed back out to you, saving you the hassle of having to manually clear the blades. The shredder will also stop and let you know when the shred bag is full. As soon as it’s emptied and replaced, the blades will begin shredding as normal.
  • The powerful motor is thermally protected from overheating. This allows it to run all day without requiring frequent cool down periods. What this means for you is the ability to quickly shred whenever you need without having to wait for the machine to be ready.
  • Innovative construction allows this device to operate very quietly. Each cutting shaft sits in a rubber shock mount, which absorbs the sound waves from the motor. The noise output rates a very low 51 decibels, about the sound of an average home. This is especially beneficial to offices where hushed operation is preferred.
  • Up to 38 sheets of stapled and paperclipped documents can enter the wide 10.25 inch feed at once and shred as fast as 22 feet per minute. Narrow, ¼” slices remain and provide a low level 2 security. While not a very high rating, this is perfect for the destruction of generic office documents, such as old memos and work orders.
  • Dahle provides a two year warranty on parts and labor for this machine. The cutting cylinders carry a lifetime warranty.


  • The thin strips only offer a level 2 security. While this is fine for general office shredding, any confidential documents should go through at least a medium security level 3 shredder, such as the 20614ec.
  • Unfortunately, the blades can’t shred credit cards or CDs. Many offices don’t need this ability. For those that do, we recommend the Dahle 30414.

Overall, the Dahle 20606C is a great system for all purpose office shredding. With robust construction and powerful parts, this machine easily tears through large stacks of unwanted items all day long. Quiet operation, given by the rubber casing, is an added benefit, especially in offices where silence is a priority. Medium size busy offices will appreciate the convenience and efficiency of this device. The Dahle 20606C is an excellent choice for your next office shredder.
