The Fellowes Powershred 9C Cross-Cut Shredder is a reliable deskside shredder for personal use. The 9C shreds up to 9 sheets per pass into 431 tiny cross-cut particles (5/32" x 1-3/8"; Security Level P-4) for enhanced security on confidential documents to help keep your information safe. This machine also safely shreds staples, paper clips and plastic credit cards. To protect more than your identity, the Powershred 9C's patented Safety Lock allows you to disable the shredder when not in use. It has a 3.8-gallon waste bin that keeps shreds contained and workspaces clean. Designed for individual use, the 9C shreds for up to 5 minutes before a 30 minute cool down period is needed and is backed by a worry-free 1-year product and service warranty plus a 3-year cutter warranty.
