In-Depth Review of the   Olympia 1500.4c (5/32 X 1 13/32) Cross-Cut

After looking over the Olympia 1500.4c (5/32 X 1 13/32) Cross-Cut Shredder we were
quite pleased with its specs. Now it may not be the cheapest on the market but we think
that the few extra bucks you’ll spend will be worth it. Check out the specs below and judge
for yourself.

This is the second lowest level of security available rated at a 2. This strip-cut shredder is
a tad better than a level 1 machine but not a whole lot. If you are really concerned about
the information on your documents then we highly recommend that you start looking at
some of the cross-cut machines. The one benefit of the strip-cut machine is that you can
shred faster and more pages per pass. Just make sure that you are choosing the right
security level for your needs.

Shredable Material
The Olympia 1500.4c (5/32 X 1 13/32) Cross-Cut Shredder can shred 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 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 1500.4c (5/32 X 1 13/32) 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 1500.4c (5/32 X 1
13/32) 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!

With an MSRP of $3,215.00 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.

So as I mentioned before, we think that the Olympia 1500.4c (5/32 X 1 13/32) 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!
