V35 by Acco Rexel.

My in-laws bought this, for shredding bills & Bank statements, they had seen the one I got from Woolworth's, and decided they needed one. Woolworth's has now folded, so they went to a high street shop, I have no idea how much they paid, but I am impressed.

This here shredder will accept 4 or 5 sheets of paper at once. It will take more, but you will probably jam it, so just put several in at a time. This machine will not shred CDs, although some shredders are designed tever

Fitted with auto start, and stop feature, manual reverse, plus a biggish plastic bin, holding which will hold about 130 sheets of shredded paper, although if you wanted, you could just place the shredder on top of a bigger bin.

The controls on the top of the shredder have 4 positions, Off, Standby, On constant, plus Reverse. When I use this machine, I tend to leave it in standby mode. The cutters start when you insert paper in the machine, and they stop as soon as the paper is in strips.

The reverse setting is in case there is a blockage, and this makes it reverse out of the machine to be sent back through again.

All waste drops into the bin under the shredder, which needs emptying fairly regularly. The manual is very good, and well written in plain English.

I think that the noise is about average for a shredder. These machines are not quiet, but acceptable for a short period of time.

This model seems to be out of production at the moment, but Companies tend to change models like we change socks.

The Company has it's own website, See here:-


I recommend this machine to everyone.
