  • How much material do you want to shred? 
  • What cut type do you want? We sell strip cut and cross cut industrial paper shredder machines. 
  • Consider the shredder’s level of capacity. How often do you want to use the machine? 
  • When thinking about the waste capacity feature, you should know how frequently you would like the waste to be disposed of. The waste capacity section will show just how much waste the shredder can hold.
