The micro cut shredder is designed for use in a small office by up to three people. The Powershred 99Ms has a feed opening of 9” that is quite wide enough to take standard size papers easily.

The 99Ms micro cut shredder is a tall and large shredder, stands on four casters and measures about 25.19”x11.44”x17.31” (H x W x D). You might find its layout to be unusual compared to other shredders as the wide 9-inch feed slot on top of the shredder is perpendicular to the door of the waste basket, running straight back.
