In-Depth Review of the Formax FD 8850CC Industrial Cross-Cut Shredder

After looking over the Formax FD 8850CC Industrial Cross-Cut Shredder we were quite
pleased with its specs. Now it may not be the cheapest on the market but we think that the
few extra bucks you’ll spend will be worth it. Check out the specs below and judge for

At a level 3 security, this cross-cut shredder gets the job done. Although there are higher levels
of security, a level 3 machine provides a sufficiently small cut size to put your identity theft
worries to bed. We also like the cross-cut because it takes up much less space which means that
you won’t have to empty your bin as frequently as you would with a strip-cut machine. There is
really no reason to jump up to a level 4 machine unless you have some ultra-sensitive
documents you need destroyed.

Shredable Material
The Formax FD 8850CC Industrial Cross-Cut Shredder can shred CDs, Credit Cards, DVDs,
Paper. If you need to be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at a
larger machine and/or look for something with a little bit lower security (the higher the security
the less likelihood that the machine shreds something other than paper).

Continuous Motor
This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means that theoretically you could shred
all day long and the machine would not have to shut-down to cool off. Remember that results
may vary under real-world operating conditions and things such as the temperature of the room
will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool and continue to shred. We give this machine 2
pats on the back for being rated continuous duty and we know that you’ll appreciate this feature
in due time.

Bin Size
With a 77 the Formax FD 8850CC Industrial Cross-Cut Shredder is going to take quite some
time to fill up unless you are shredding non-stop. Your bags will be pretty heavy so go ahead
and cut off your gym membership to save a little bit of money. Just make sure every time you
empty the bin that your machine is getting enough oil!

Throat Size
A 17.5 inch throat means that you can fit just about anything into this bad boy. Gone are the
days of folding your oversized paper or crumpling and jamming your machine with regular-sized
paper. This guy gets 2 thumbs up for the often underestimated large throat size.

Auto Oiler
This machine gets a huge bonus for having the automatic oiler already installed. This means
that you don’t have to worry about oiling the machine or figuring out who oiled it last. It is a
fact that well oiled cutting heads will prolong the life of your machine. All you have to worry
about is changing the oil in the reservoir and you’re good-to-go.

The Formax FD 8850CC Industrial Cross-Cut Shredder comes with a Lifetime Limited
Warranty on cutting head / 1-Year Warranty on all other parts. This means that you have
plenty of time to test out the machine and make sure that everything is running smoothly. Just
make sure to properly care for your machine and you shouldn’t have any issues.

With an MSRP of $15,995.00 this shredder is not the cheapest around but remember to NEVER
pay the full amount. You can find discounts of up to 50% off if you look around on the web.
