In-Depth Review of the Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder - Level 5

We recently took a look at the Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder - Level 5.
Overall the machine is quite nice but I’ll let you be the judge after you see the pros and cons
below. Always remember that the stated specs of a machine do not always translate
precisely to a real-world environment.

This level 5 shredder is nearly unmatched when it comes to shred size. Level 5 was previously
the highest shred level until the NSA adopted the new spec for high-security shredding at a
level 6. This machine will absolutely shred your sensitive documents to an unrecognizable state.
If you are buying this machine you are most likely involved with the government or government
contracting. If you are not, we recommend that you save a little bit of money by looking at a
level 3 or 4 machine.

Shredable Material
The Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder - Level 5 can shred CDs, Credit Cards,
DVDs, 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).

Bin Size
The Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder - Level 5 sports a hefty 42.3 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 15.75 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.

The Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder - Level 5 comes with a 2 Year Limited
Warranty on Shredder / 5 Years on Cutting Heads. 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.

With an MSRP of $6,995.00 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
When accuracy matters professionals prefer Dahle. Our German engineered trimmers feature a
precision graduated, self-sharpening blade made of German Solingen steel. This blade cuts in
either direction and maintains a perfectly honed edge every time it's used. Why trust your
images with anything else? With over 75 years of experience, our products are designed to meet
the strictest safety standards in both personal and professional grade products. You can have
the peace of mind in knowing you are about to purchase a quality product that will provide
many years of trouble free operation.

Manufacturer Jargon
With the unique DAHLE CleanTEC® filter system for a better indoor climate and the
convenience of the DAHLE Safe Technology safety package. Powerful motor for high
shredding capacity, particularly quiet. Solid-steel cutters in special high-grade steel can cope
with paper clips and staples. User-friendly electronics with electronic start/stop function
controlled by integrated light barrier. Ergonomically designed control panel with
illuminated function and information unit. Simple and safe paper infeed. Motor cuts out
automatically when waste bag is full and door is open. Auto-reverse function. Energy saving
from two inactivity levels: Sleep mode after 10 minutes and complete shut-down after 30
minutes. Widely opening door for convenient waste bag disposal. Good mobility from large
casters and brakes for firm standing. High-quality wooden base cabinet. Including 10 waste
bags and 400 ml of oil.

So as I mentioned before, we think that the Dahle 41630 CleanTEC High Security Shredder
- Level 5 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!
