The Aurora Cross Cut Shredder is a reliable personal shredder for home use that can shred up to 6 sheets of paper at a time into 7mm strips. In addition it can also shred 1 credit card at a time and if staples find their way into the shredder it will shred these to. The 9.6 litre bin provides good storage for shredded waste and has a convenient access area at the back of the bin for non shredding waste. It also has a thermal cut out to prevent the shredder from over heating and a reverse setting for clearing paper jams. overall a great small shredder for the home that shreds quickly and quietly.
