Olympia 1500.6 (1/4") Strip-Cut Shredder – Our in-depth Review

After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Olympia 1500.6 (1/4") 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

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 th en 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

Shredable Material
The Olympia 1500.6 (1/4") 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 1500.6 (1/4") Strip-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/labor - 5 years cutters on the Olympia 1500.6 (1/4") 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!

The MSRP is $2,920.00 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.

About the Manufacturer

Manufacturer Jargon

general office requirements with various shred sizes to fit all security needs. Handles computer
printouts with ease. Attractive enough to fit any office decor. User friendly, automatic
operations. Also available for CD ROMs and diskettes.

I hope that our break-down here has helped you make your decision on the Olympia 1500.6
(1/4") 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.
