Reviewing the Formax FD 8650CC Auto Oiler Cross-Cut Shredder

The Formax FD 8650CC Auto Oiler Cross-Cut Shredder appears to be a solid machine with
very competitive specs relative to the competition. Used properly I’m not sure why you
wouldn’t have this machine for quite some time. Below we break down the individual specs.

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 8650CC Auto Oiler Cross-Cut Shredder can shred Credit Cards, 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

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 53 the Formax FD 8650CC Auto Oiler 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 16'' 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

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 8650CC Auto Oiler Cross-Cut Shredder comes with a Lifetime on
cutters/1 Year on machine. 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 $6,595.00 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.

Manufacturer Jargon
The Formax FD 8650CC AutoOiler Office Shredder features an automatic oiler that pumps
20 mls of oil onto the cutting blades every 30 minutes for optimal performance. The FD
8650CC is an office size shredder with industrial strength, and shreds up to 28 sheets at
one time at speeds up to 30 feet per minute. The extra wide feed opening handles

So as I mentioned before, we think that the Formax FD 8650CC Auto Oiler Cross-Cut
Shredder is a worthy competitor and deserves a second look. If you have more specific
questions I didn’t answer here, feel free to give us a call and we’d be happy to help you
out. I also wanted to remind you that real-world conditions do not always produce the
same results that you might expect from the listed specs. Happy Shredding!
