Reviewing the HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder

We recently took a look at the HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder. Overall the machine is quite nice but I'll let you be the judge after you see the pros and cons below. Always remember that the stated specs of a machine do not always translate precisely to a real-world environment.

Security

At a level 3 security, this cross-cut shredder gets the job done. Although there are higher levels of security, a level 3 machine provides a sufficiently small cut size to put your identity theft worries to bed. We also like the cross-cut because it takes up much less space which means that you won't have to empty your bin as frequently as you would with a strip-cut machine. There is really no reason to jump up to a level 4 machine unless you have some ultra-sensitive documents you need destroyed.

Shredable Material

The HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder can shred Credit Cards, Paper, Paper Clips, Staples. If you need to be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at a larger machine and/or look for something with a little bit lower security (the higher the security the less likelihood that the machine shreds something other than paper).

Continuous Motor

This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means that theoretically you could shred all day long and the machine would not have to shut-down to cool off. Remember that results may vary under real-world operating conditions and things such as the temperature of the room will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool and continue to shred. We give this machine 2 pats on the back for being rated continuous duty and we know that you'll appreciate this feature in due time.

Bin Size

The HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder sports a hefty 30.6 gallon bin. We know that you're not messing around when you get up in this size. You'll be able to go quite some time before you have to actually empty that thing out. Fill up your machine, skip the gym and just carry the full bag around the office all day!

Throat Size

A 15.2 inch throat means that you can fit just about anything into this bad boy. Gone are the days of folding your oversized paper or crumpling and jamming your machine with regular-sized paper. This guy gets 2 thumbs up for the often underestimated large throat size.

Auto Oiler

With an Optional Auto-Oiler available on this machine we highly recommend that you get it pre-installed. The machine is pre-wired to accept an oiler so all the manufacturer has to do is hook it up properly and you'll never have to worry about messy oil again. Automatically oiling your machine takes the guess-work out of maintenance and will most likely increase the life of your machine.

Warranty

The HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder comes with a 2 Year Limited Warranty on Shredder/Lifetime on Cutting Blades. This means that you have plenty of time to test out the machine and make sure that everything is running smoothly. Just make sure to properly care for your machine and you shouldn't have any issues.

Price

With an MSRP of $2,792.00 this shredder is not the cheapest around but remember to NEVER pay the full amount. You can find discounts of up to 50% off if you look around on the web.

Manufacturer Jargon

With their powerful motors, the voluminous devices of the HSM PROFESSIONAL series are able to make a clean sweep of all material to be shredded even in IT departments and on entire office floors, including sensitive paper documents, computer lists and credit cards.

So as I mentioned before, we think that the HSM 386.2cc Cross-Cut Shredder is a worthy competitor and deserves a second look. If you have more specific questions I didn't answer here, feel free to give us a call and we'd be happy to help you out. I also wanted to remind you that real-world conditions do not always produce the same results that you might expect from the listed specs. Happy Shredding!
