GoECOlife GXC1631TD 16-Sheet Wide Entry Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder
– Our in-depth Review

We recently took a look at the GoECOlife GXC1631TD 16-Sheet Wide Entry 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 GXC1631TD 16-Sheet Wide Entry 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
The GoECOlife GXC1631TD 16-Sheet Wide Entry Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder has a
27.2 gallon bin. We’re happy with this size because it will give you a bit more time between
emptying your bin. Although the size may make it difficult to fit this shredder in a tight space,
it’s always worth it in the long run to get a bigger bin size and move your office around a bit.

Throat Size
We love the 12.20 inch throat on this shredder because you can put in odd sized paper and it
leaves plenty of breathing room when it comes to regular sized paper. Some of the smaller
machines will crumple the paper and eventually jam because the throat opening is just not
large enough.
The three year limited warranty, with lifetime on cutters on the GoECOlife GXC1631TD 16-
Sheet Wide Entry Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder is one of the best in the industry so
rest assured that you are covered. Just make sure that you oil your machine and avoid inserting
any foreign object in the cutting heads and you’ll be just fine!

The MSRP is $1,649.95 but you can find it for much less online if you look around. Don’t let the
price deter you until you do a little bit of comparison shopping first.
