Additional Information

Shredders - Cross or 'Confetti' Cut

Protect your identity by shredding personal and confidential documents. For high security choose a cross-cut shredder. These cut the waste into tiny 'confetti' size bits so it's virtually impossible for a document to be reconstructed. Cross-cut or 'confetti' waste is less bulky so you don't need to empty the basket so often.

This item is excluded from the 30 day money back guarantee. See the Additional Information panel for full details. Please note that this product is excluded from our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Customer reviews and ratings

ProAction 5 Sheet 18 Litre Cross Cut Shredder. 4.4 5 750 794
Good for the money For the money this is a good little shredder - as long as you don't want to shred a lot in one go. I would recommend shredding no more than 3 sheets at a time. If I have a fair bit to shred I do it in batches to ensure no overheating. So far I have had no problems. If you want a shredder for light domestic use then this will definitely fit the bill. I would not recommend if you have large volumes to shred. 31 August 2015
Good, fast shredder Good shredder...does what it says on the tin 28 August 2015
This shredder is affordable and can effortlessly shred about 3 pages at a time. Any more and it starts to grumble. A bit loud but I've never had a quiet one. Would reccomend. 27 August 2015
Does what it says on the box. Good product that performs well considering it's modest price. A little noisier than my previous shredder but still perfectly acceptable, 26 August 2015
Shredder Brilliant shredder fast and efficient like the mesh box as you can see when full 26 August 2015

Answer: 
It happens from time to time so i suggest switch off from mains and using a very thin screwdriver or other thin pointed object start gently poking and easing the paper jam,have tweezers at hand to pull your jammed paper out once free.Jams generally are caused by putting more paper through than recommended.

Answer: 
Never tried. But I suppose it could but will get affected over time. Personally I feel it is a very nice product for the price but should not be used to shred credit cards.

Answer: 
No I don't think it does. I read a review on this product where someone had tried but they said they don't recommend doing it as the shredder got very hot.
