The 41514 shredder is designed to accommodate the needs of most busy offices by shredding between 2,000 and 8,000 sheets of paper per day. It's a perfect shredder for destroying marketing plans, health records, and any other confidential information. It operates using the intuitive SmartPower Energy Management System. This multi-stage system reduces power consumption after ten minutes of sitting idle (sleep mode), and completely powers down after 30 minutes of inactivity. The SmartPower feature will appeal to those interested in conserving energy as well as reducing electrical costs. The easy-to-use command dial controls all of the machine's functions and notifies the user when sheet capacity is exceeded, when to replace the filter, and even when to change the shred bag. Equipped with ESP (Electronic Sensing Protection), the shredder "Knows" how much paper you're trying to shred and won't allow sheet capacity to be exceeded.
