In-Depth Review of the   Olympia 1500.2c (1/16 X 9/16) Cross-Cut Shredder

We recently took a look at the Olympia 1500.2c (1/16 X 9/16) Cross-Cut 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.

This shredder sports a level 4 security which means that no one is going to be able to read
your documents. A level 3 in generally sufficient for most environments but the level 4
provides that extra level of security. An added bonus with this machine is that because the
shreds are smaller, they take up less space so you’ll be able to shred more paper before
you have to dump out the bin. This will save you time and money (when it comes to bags).

Shredable Material
The Olympia 1500.2c (1/16 X 9/16) Cross-Cut Shredder can shred 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
The Olympia 1500.2c (1/16 X 9/16) Cross-Cut Shredder has a 22.4 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 10.25 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.

Auto Oiler
With an Optional Auto-Oiler available on this machine we highly recommend that you get
it pre-installed. The machine is pre-wired to accept an oiler so all the manufacturer has to
do is hook it up properly and you’ll never have to worry about messy oil again.
Automatically oiling your machine takes the guess-work out of maintenance and will most
likely increase the life of your machine.
The 3 years parts and labor - Lifetime on cutters on the Olympia 1500.2c (1/16 X 9/16)
Cross-Cut 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 $3,215.00 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.
