The Fortishred 2250C can shred papers, paper clips, staples and multimedia items into 5/32" x 1-9/16" cross cut particles and disposes them off into a 20 gallon bin.

You get to conserve energy and enjoy less monthly electricity bill with this powerful cross cut shredder. Fellowes 2250C also stops working when someone tries to open the machine or if something comes close to the paper entry slot.
