Intimus 852CC Centralized Industrial Cross Cut Shredder Review
Ever wish you could just dump your trash bin into a shredder and let it do the work for you? Well now you can, with the Intimus 852CC Centralized Industrial Cross Cut Shredder. Built for large offices with high shredding needs, the 852CC quickly takes in and destroys entire waste bins of material at once. It is also easy and uncomplicated to use. Let's take a closer look.
Why it's good:
It's simple to use. A large hopper accepts an entire container full of material, allowing you to toss it in and be on your way. The machine utilizes a keyboard operation with a rotary main switch for easy on and on off. If a paper jam occurs, an automatic reverse helps to unclog the blades by feeding items back out of the cutting shafts. It also offers both visual and audible fault indication. A space saving shelf on the front gives accessible storage for paper or other small office items while you shred.
It has a sturdy motor. The powerful engine is designed to be maintenance free. It is also rated for continuous run time. This means you won't experience the frequent cool down periods after heavy use as with smaller shredders, saving you time.
Great capacity. As previously stated, an entire waste bin of trash can go into the large hopper at once. The machine can shred up to 80 sheets of paper at once. A wide 17 inch paper opening located below the hopper offers additional entry for flat documents, including documents with staples and paperclips. Items are devoured as fast as 71 feet per minute, guaranteeing speedy destruction of all your paperwork.
Great security. The cross cutting mechanism converts full sized documents into small pieces only 1/8 inch by 1-1/2 inches in size. These are virtually impossible to reassemble, even when aided by a computer. The result is a safe disposal of all your sensitive material.
Generous waste storage. A sizable, fully enclosed dust-free container offers 7.2 cubic feet of shred storage. That is approximately equal to 53.9 gallons, definitely adequate for the plethora of shreds collected each day. A mobile base with a removable catch basket makes discarding the remains simple.
Things to consider:
Security. While this model does provide a level 3 security, keeping most confidential items safe, highly classified documents should be put through a high security shredder.
Size. Other than sheer weight, this is a sizable machine designed for large office and industry use. It also comes with a hefty price tag. If your business doesn't need high volumes of shredding, this may be more shredder than necessary. If that is the case, be sure to check out Intimus' line of office shredders available in a wide variety of sizes to fit your needs.
As evidenced by the many strengths, the 852CC is a great large office shredder. Designed for simple use and secure destruction, it is both efficient and convenient. We think the Intimus 852CC is an excellent choice for your next centralized industrial shredder.
