In-Depth Review of the Formax FD 8300HS High Security Level 6 Deskside Shredder

After looking over the Formax FD 8300HS High Security Level 6 Deskside Shredder we
were quite pleased with its specs. Now it may not be the cheapest on the market but we
think that the few extra bucks you’ll spend will be worth it. Check out the specs below and
judge for yourself.

Security
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 Formax FD 8300HS High Security Level 6 Deskside 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 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
With a 15 gallon bin, the Formax FD 8300HS High Security Level 6 Deskside Shredder can hold
a bit more shred than the smallest machines out there, but you’ll still be finding yourself
emptying the bin fairly frequently. It is great if you need something to fit in a smaller space, but
if you shred frequently we recommend jumping up in bin size.

Throat Size
The 9.5 inch throat on this machine gives you a little bit of breathing room when you’re
shredding regular size paper and the option to shred a few odd shaped things. If you really have
large paper, then you’ll need to look at machine with something larger than a 10” throat.

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.

Warranty
The Formax FD 8300HS High Security Level 6 Deskside Shredder comes with a 1 Year
Warranty on cutting head and all parts. 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.

Price
The MSRP is $2,550.00 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

for the office environment to large mailcenters. Formax solutions include pressure sealers to

rugged design that fits right under a desk to shred “Top Secret” or classified documents.

High Security Level 6 Deskside 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
