Whether its sensitive data stored on CD’s or classified documents that need to be destroyed, most businesses need more than just a standard paper shredder. Why choose one or the other when the Formax FD 8730HS gives you the capability to do both. This high security shredder can shred up to 15 documents at once (23 feet per hour) effectively transforming each document into 1/32" x 3/16" unreadable particles. The FD 8730HS is also equipped with a powerful CD cutting system capable of shredding up to 2,000 CDs per hour converting each disc into tiny 1/16" x 5/32" particles. Its practical design features 2 separate feed openings as well as 2 separate waste bins. Operation is simple thanks to the LED Control Panel with digital Load Indicator. 

The FD 8730HS dimensions are 28" W x 24" D x 43" H and weighs roughly 325 lbs. Even though the machine is large, it is quite easy to relocate this heavy duty shredder because it comes with casters on the bottom of the shredder. Its large size allows you to shred a large amount of documents and media. The FD 8730HS has a waste bin capacity of 31 gallons for documents and 18.5 gallons for optical media. What really separates the FD 8730HS from other high security shredders is its automatic functions.

The Formax FD 8730HS has an automatic start/stop function which relies on its optical sensor to detect paper and automatically start operation. Once all the paper has gone through the shredder, it will detect that there is no more paper and automatically stop operation. When the bin is full, the motor will automatically shut off - saving energy. This shredder will automatically stop if the cabinet door is open for safety purposes. The Formax FD 8730HS arrives to you with EvenFlow, an automatic oiling system that will lubricate the cutting blades so you don't have to. If you're worried about having to deal with paper jams then the Formax FD 8730HS is truly perfect for you. This high security shredder has an automatic reverse function that makes paper jams a thing of the past. The shredder can detect when it is overloaded with paper and a jam is going to occur so it will automatically switch to reverse mode and clear the jam before you have to. The last automatic function this great shredder has is its automatic cleaning, which will save you time and lots of efforts. All you have to do is press the reverse button for 5 seconds and the motor will run in reverse for 1 minute while shredding capacity is decreasing. There is no maintenance issue that you will need to worry about regarding this high security shredder as it will take care of hassles for you!
