Reviewing the Formax FD 8650HS High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler

After looking over the Formax FD 8650HS High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler
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.

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 8650HS 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
With a 53 the Formax FD 8650HS High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler is going to take
quite some time to fill up unless you are shredding non-stop. Your bags will be pretty heavy so
go ahead and cut off your gym membership to save a little bit of money. Just make sure every
time you empty the bin that your machine is getting enough oil!

Throat Size
A 16 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.

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 8650HS High Security Shredder with Automatic Oiler comes with a 1 Year on
Cutting Heads / 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.

The MSRP is $5,695.00 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.
