Kobra 270 TS HS6 High Security NSA 02-01 Shredder
For anyone looking for a shredder for high security documents, the Kobra 270 TS HS6 is the best product on the market. This is perfect for those who work in government organizations or research facilities that handle many confidential documents. I own a research facility, and this item is by far one of the best that I have seen in a very long time. Government regulations require that organizations like mine use high security shredders to dispose of confidential document. This level 6 shredder makes sure that there are no traces of information left after shredding.
This machine was not purchased for its shredding speed or capacity. It has as low shred count of 6 sheets per pass and a speed of 17 feet per minute. The shredder can grind papers to tiny chards that can never be reassembled. My organization's workers can shred an amazing 1000 sheets per day for our confidential research materials.
The machine is a bit bulky at 103 pounds, but it remains stationary in our media office. The machine has a strong, durable design that is made to last. The motor is continuous duty. We never push the machine, but we are glad to know that it can perform as expected if we do. It is not as noisy as I expected the machine to be. The noise level that it produces is only 54/55 dba. The shredder helps to make our hectic research office a little quieter. We are all happy to have such a reliable machine around the office.
