"This is a solid piece of kit. Have shredded loads. Only downside the screws that hold the blades are made from putty. Replace with 12.9 grade m6 x 12mm csk Allen screws as soon as you buy. Will save a lot of grief later."
"Great shredder, but leave a bit of twig in the works, and it baulks at starting up. Then you go through the interminable round of checking fuses, power socket, circuit breaker. The screw thread to undo the front of the machine takes dozens of turns to undo. Does this help safety? No way. Just annoys you. Ditto the feeder aperture, which stops you from shredding the stuff you most want to shred. It's a lot quieter than the shredder I had before, and much more powerful - if only the thing would start reliably."
