About This Item
Actual item is shown. Only what is shown is included. Used unit, reconditioned by our team to and recertified to perform to oem manufactuer spec, in great condition and ready to work. Please understand the machine is being reconditioned by an authorized HSM shredder dealer, not machine-flippers.Pictures are of actual unit, so please review pictures for detail on condition and interfaces. The machine was operated in all modes and also found to grind paper per specifications. The result is shown in the pictures. This unit is designed for commercial duty applications. We guarantee this machine to perform as we have described upon receipt.

Notes from our Tech when ReConditioned
This is a very heavy duty Disk and Paper combination shredder with high volume capabilities. Shreds perfectly - see the result. This unit has some missing teeth (see pictures of the paper output) and will NOT pass a Level 6 (P-7) audit. If you are not under an audit requirement, this machine is an excellent value. It will still shred paper into unreadable microcut output. The disk mill is perfect. Bearings were lubed. The sensors were performance tested and all work as intended. The machine was fully cleaned and lubed. Final gears were checked for wear. The auto oiler was not functioning correctly, we modified it so it will work better than new.

Note this model machine is currently offered new elsewhere for $6556.

Serial No - 1605B0030
Shred Size - see specs

NOTE - This machine MUST be oiled properly for us to honor the warranty. The auto oiler must be monitored to insure oiling is adequate. Contact us immediately if this is in question. This is extremely important for proper maintenance of this commercial quality machine. We also offer oil - please ask.
