Reviewing the Kobra 270 TS HS6 High Security Shredder with Auto Oiler

After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Kobra 270 TS HS6 High
Security Shredder with Auto Oiler 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
At a level 3 security, this cross-cut shredder gets the job done. Although there are higher
levels of security, a level 3 machine provides a sufficiently small cut size to put your
identity theft worries to bed. We also like the cross-cut because it takes up much less
space which means that you won’t have to empty your bin as frequently as you would with
a strip-cut machine. There is really no reason to jump up to a level 4 machine unless you
have some ultra-sensitive documents you need destroyed.

Shredable Material
The Kobra 270 TS HS6 High Security Shredder with Auto Oiler can shred CDs, Credit
Cards, DVDs, 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 Kobra 270 TS HS6 High Security Shredder with Auto Oiler has a 29 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 10.6 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.

Warranty
With a Limited 90 Day Warranty on Shredder, 1 Year on Cutting Blades the Kobra 270 TS
HS6 High Security Shredder with Auto Oiler gives you just enough time to make sure that
you didn’t get a lemon. Just like with most things that we buy, they tend to break within the
first month of getting them. Treat your shredder right and you shouldn’t have any issues.

Price
With an MSRP of $4,795.00 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.

About the Manufacturer

ELCOMAN is today one of the world leaders in production of office shredders capable to
shred paper, CDs, DVDs, Floppy Disks and credit cards, professional guillotines and
trimmers, flip charts with rewritable steel board adjustable in height through retractable
legs. All items are sold under the KOBRA trademark in over 80 countries, through a far-
reaching network of agents and retailers and 7 subsidiaries worldwide.

Manufacturer Jargon
"ENERGY SMART": is the most advanced energy saving system around. When the machine
has not been used for just eight seconds, the shredder goes into automatic power saving
stand-by mode and can be restarted by simply inserting material into the machine to be
shredded. When the machine has not been used for four hours, it automatically
disconnects from the mains power supply and even switches off the Energy Smart light so
the machine is not left on when nobody is in the office.

So as I mentioned before, we think that the Kobra 270 TS HS6 High Security Shredder with
Auto Oiler 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!
