It’s a fairly versatile machine with a not-too-crazy price tag either (but remember you can often get a better deal if you call or email :-) Overall we’d recommend this machine but I suggest that you take a look at the specs yourself. Shredable Material The Intimus VZM 17.00 Industrial Shredder with Metal Extractor (1/4 x 5/8 - 2) can shred CDs, Credit Cards, DVDs, Floppy Disks, Paper, Paper Clips, 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 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. Auto Oiler This machine does not come with an auto-oiler and does not have the option to have one installed. Although automatic oilers are not necessary to maintain your machine, they do take the guess-work out of maintenance. Don’t hold it against the machine though as you can easily oil the machine yourself on regular intervals. Warranty The Intimus VZM 17.00 Industrial Shredder with Metal Extractor (1/4 x 5/8 - 2) comes with a 1 Year Parts & Labor - 5 yrs Cutting Cylinders. 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. Price The MSRP is $50,000.00 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.
