Good little shredder and great price!
I really like this shredder. I was looking for something cheap because I don't do volume shredding, just one person, home-style shredding. It is a noisy little thing, but the shredding comes out small and the crosscut is a great feature. Call me paranoid, but I will take the little bucket around to different inside trash cans and evenly distribute the shreddings, so nothing can be put back together again. I take my garbage out in sections, so it isn't dumped all at once. Where we live people go through the garbage and there is a high chance of identity theft with the type of people that are doing this. You have to take control of these things. I also keep my most important papers in a safe deposit box and lock household papers in a locking filing cabinet. I even keep my purse in a locked filing cabinet rather than just sitting out. These are tips for people who are having problems with snoops. Hope it helps.

This is a terrible shredder. It jams with only 2 sheets of paper. I would recommend that when searching for a good shredder..do not pick this one at any price.

Good price, still working after 5 yr for light use

Bought the WM675XB version (not sure what difference is from WM675XA) 5 years ago for a similar price. Still works fine for home use (shred bills, statements, receipts, etc. 2x a month; a few IDs or credit cards per year) . When I use shredders, I go 1 or 2 sheets below max capacity, especially if the paper is thick. And I clear out any strips in the teeth or rollers every few sessions.

Assured Security!

My new 6 sheet crosscut shredder works beautifully. Now I don't have to experience paper stuck in the shredder or a cutter that works too slowly. I love my new tool and would like others to experience the joy of knowing that your data is safely taken care of.

Excellent Small Shredder

Have used for several years. Perfect small shredder for home use. Easy to use and to empty.

Average Rating:(4.0)out of 5 stars

So far...so good!

I just received the shredder last week. The first thing I shredded was an expired credit card. The shredder worked really well on the credit card. I have also shredded some paper (about 50 sheets) and so far it is working well!

1. I USE MINE ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND LET IT REST ABOUT 10 MINUTES (SET TO THE OFF POSITION) I DON'T WAN TO TAKE A CHANCE THAT IT WILL "BURN UP"!
by 2sewingcats
2. The information is on page 3 of the owner's manual. The gray chart at the top right of the page. Run time is listed as "Duty Cycle" and it says " 2-3 min on / 30 min. off".
by infosekr
3. I have used it several hours with just a couple minutes rest while I readied another batch. No problems at all, however, I'm not running 6 sheets at once, I think that's too much. I'm only doing 3 and sometimes 4 at once because it sounds like it labors too hard to shred any more than 3 or 4.
by TexasPepper14
4. My instructions said it can be used 30 minutes and if it over heats it will turn itself off.
by Yellowbird55
5. I recently used for twenty straight before I felt like it needed a break due to a little bit less steady noise.
by Wrh0412
6. I didn't see this in the manual. Maybe I missed it. You could contact the manufacturer and ask them.
by NJKID
7. About 15 to 20 before it gets warm, depends on amount of time between sheets your are shredding. When you stop feeding, it stops running
by RetiredFLlady
8. Generally I can fill the tub before it warms up and needs a rest. Maybe 15 minute rest.
by applepie11
9. Per the machine's manual: You can shred up to 6 sheets of 20lb bond paper at a time. You can shred up to 1 credit card at a time. You can shred small staples & 1 small paper clip at a time. Overfeeding can result in extensive damage which will strain the machine & quickly wear and/or break the cutting blades & internal components. Overheating with extended use will occur. Over use is when the basket is lightly full (not pressed down). Upon overheating, the machine will automatically shut off. It is recommended to wait at least 30 minutes before re-use. Overheating on a regular basis will strain the machine & quickly wear and/or break the internal components.

10. The box says 2-3 minutes.
by Ozarkslifelover
11. I have never had to give this product a rest. I have shredded mega stuff and not had any problems.
by Valgal123
12. Hi Lucy, As long as you don't overload it with too many sheets at a time (more than 5 or 6 depending on the thickness), it will usually run a good 3-5 minutes. If you do over-do it, usually using the reverse will unclog it. Otherwise, I have always used tweezers or a small pair of pliers for any overloads. I haven't thought about rest time, I either use the reverse for any issues & continue on, or I am busy opening junk mail in between so it has never gotten too hot for me. Hope this helps!
