The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for 2 minutes before needing a 30-minute cool-down. If it shreds continuously beyond the max running time and begins to overheat, the unit will automatically shut off to protect the motor.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you use a bag?
Yes, the shredder piece just lifts off of the trashcan below, so you could easily put a bag in the receptacle before placing the shredder on top.
What is the security cut level?
It cross cuts which is more secure that the straight cut from some shredders. It basically makes confetti of documents.
How often should the blades be oiled?
Depends how much you use it, but twice a year would be a safe amount.
