How Well Does the Olympia 3825 Strip-Cut Shredder Stack up Against the Competition?

After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Olympia 3825 Strip-Cut
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.

Security
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 documen ts 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 3825 Strip-Cut Shredder can shred 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.

Bin Size
The Olympia 3825 Strip-Cut Shredder sports a hefty 39.65 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
A 15 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 size.
Warranty
The 3 year warranty parts & labor on the Olympia 3825 Strip-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!

Price
The MSRP is $1,925.95 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.

About the Manufacturer
Martin Yale Industries is a US manufacturer of office and mailroom equipment designed to
make work life more productive and secure. Founded in 1940, Martin Yale has over 68 years
of experience designing, engineering, and manufacturing quality products for the office.

Manufacturer Jargon
The Olympia 3825 office paper shredder is versatile and loaded with features. This table top
shredder delivers high throughput speed for fast, secure shredding. Specially designed for
continuous computer printouts. Reverse switch is automatically activated via a light sensor and
quickly clears any paper jams. Easily moved for total shredding security. Efficient continuous
duty motor. Optional stand for complete mobility.

I hope that our break-down here has helped you make your decision on the Olympia 3825 Strip-
Cut 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.
