Reviewing the GoECOlife GXC180TA 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial

We recently took a look at the GoECOlife GXC180TA 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green
Commercial Shredder. Overall the machine is quite nice but I’ll let you be the judge after
you see the pros and cons below. Always remember that the stated specs of a machine do
not always translate precisely to a real-world environment.

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 GoECOlife GXC180TA 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder can shred CDs,
Credit Cards, DVDs, Paper & Staples. 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 not rated for continuous use. That simply means that you will have to shut the
machine down after a certain period of time to let it cool off. Now don’t let this scare you away
because most people will never reach that point unless they just sit down and start shredding
and shredding and shredding. If you plan on doing all your shredding at one sitting then it is
highly recommended that you get a machine with a continuous duty motor, otherwise you’re
just fine.

Bin Size
At 7 gallons, the GoECOlife GXC180TA 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder is a
personal/deskside machine. You won’t be able to shred too much before you have to empty it,
but presumably you won’t be shredding that frequently. If you will, we recommend that you
jump up to something with a bigger bin size.

Throat Size
The 9.06 inch throat on this machine gives you a little bit of breathing room when you’re
shredding regular size paper and the option to shred a few odd shaped things. If you really have
large paper, then you’ll need to look at machine with something larger than a 10” throat.

The GoECOlife GXC180TA 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder comes with a Two
year limited warranty, with 7 years on cutters. 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 $599.99 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.

Green Commercial Shredder is a worthy competitor and deserves a second look. If you have
