How Well Does the Formax FD 8400HS-1 High Security Shredder with Automatic
Oiler Stack up Against the Competition?

After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Formax FD 8400HS-1 High
Security Shredder with Automatic 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.

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 8400HS-1 High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler 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
The Formax FD 8400HS-1 High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler has a 20 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
This machine gets a huge bonus for having the automatic oiler already installed. This means
that you don’t have to worry about oiling the machine or figuring out who oiled it last. It is a
fact that well oiled cutting heads will prolong the life of your machine. All you have to worry
about is changing the oil in the reservoir and you’re good-to-go.

The Formax FD 8400HS-1 High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler comes with a 1 Year
on Cutters/Machine. 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 $3,745.00 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.
