Thinking of Buying the SEM 266/4DEP Deployment High Security Cross Cut Paper
Shredder? Here’s our Take

After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the SEM 266/4DEP Deployment
High Security Cross Cut Paper Shredder has proved to be a worthy machine. 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.

NSA Approved, this shredder sports level 6 security which shreds your paper into sand-like
particles. You only need this level of security if you are working in or with the government. The
downside to level 6 machines is that you can generally only do a few sheets per pass and the
cutting heads are more prone to damage from staples or paper clips so you should always
remove them to prolong the life of your machine. If you don’t need this level of security we
recommend you jusm to a level 3 or 4.

Shredable Material
The SEM 266/4DEP Deployment High Security Cross Cut Paper 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 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 SEM 266/4DEP Deployment High Security Cross Cut Paper Shredder sports a hefty 36
gallon bin. We know that you’re not messing around when you get up in this size. You’ll be able
to go quite some time before you have to actually empty that thing out. Fill up your machine,
skip the gym and just carry the full bag around the office all day!

Throat Size
We love the 12.6 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
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 SEM 266/4DEP Deployment High Security Cross Cut Paper Shredder comes with a 1 Year
Parts and Cutting Head, 90 day labor. 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.

The MSRP is $9,968.75 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.

Manufacturer Jargon
Custom Molded Foam Inner Design for Maximum System Protection. Lockable w/ Heavy Duty
Casters. The SEM Model 266/4 uses an EXCLUSIVE factory installed Automatic Oiler with a
ONE GALLON plastic bottle of oil that can be deployed on either side or the back of the
machine. The oil bottles are simply and easily switched using a “quick disconnect” that snaps
into place. No pouring to fill messy reservoirs.

I hope that our break-down here has helped you make your decision on the SEM 266/4DEP
Deployment High Security Cross Cut Paper Shredder. We are always available to answer more
specific questions that you might have, so don’t hesitate to give us a call. As always, remember
that the manufacturer stated specs do not always match up to the real-world performance that
you get from the machine so keep this in mind when deciding on what to buy.
