The essential mini-cut shredder for the home, Fellowes' 6M can shred six sheets per pass into 1000 tiny 4 x 12 mm mini-cut particles (which is 4 times more than cross cut shredders), so you can be sure that your confidential documents have been shredded securely. When switched to lock position, the patented safety lock prevents it from accidentally being activated. The 6M will shred continuously for up to 5 minutes before requiring a 30 minute cool down period. This mini-cut shredder's powerful cutters will not only shred your documents into unreadable pieces, but can shred staples, paper clips and credit cards too. For disposal, it features a spacious 13 litre bin with a lift-off-head, making it easy to dispose of your newly shredded paper.
