New Staples Shredders Need Down Time????

submitted on February 22, 2010 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
The recent ads at Staples for their own brand of shredder all say
Runs for xx min on before needing xx min off for down time

Here's a sample link http://www.staples.com/Staples.....num&cm_lm=
I have never noticed that in the description of a shredder before. Is that normal? Do other brands have this problem? Does it get overheated after a few minutes and can't be used for up to an hour? I would think that most people use a shredder for longer periods of time, don't they?

    If you read the instruction manual for shredders there is often some mention of this.

    All three different brands I've owned have had this clause somewhere in the manual.

    As you progress to the more expensive and higher end models, this becomes less of an issue.

    All will have this issue somewhat, its a simple matter of an enclosed motor and friction.

    Yes, read the manual! I learned about this "clause" the hard way - I burned my first shredder by running it for 30 minutes without time to cool down. Sad

    Wow, thanks to all of you! Your comments are appreciated. I guess I never noticed this until I looked more seriously at buying a shredder.
