It would be nice if it had an opening in the lid so you could toss out other items you dont want to shred, Then it would be a space saving trash can / shredder.Its a hassle to lift the shredder head up and toss items in. Otherwise its good for home use, and a good deal on sale. I dont think it should be rated a 12 sheet shredder 6 to 8 is about the max.

    Comments about Swingline GBC® SC170 12-Sheet Strip-Cut Shredder:

    Bought this for the Center office, to catch up on a year's worth of neglected shredding. Does a good job, very quiet overall, and a nice size bucket for a mid-sized machine. With strip shredding we can donate the output to the Animal Shelter for use in bedding for the critters, so we're able to contribute constructively and re-recyle! A little tricky seating the top, but am getting the hang of it. Attractive, short enough to set it under the desk and just feed it as paperwork is sorted.

            Comments about Swingline GBC® SC170 12-Sheet Strip-Cut Shredder:

            Just what is needed for small jobs all the way to large jobs. The side button safety feature is fantastic. If the shredder is not placed on the basket correctly it shuts it self off. No need to go back and forth with the shred button to be sure it does its job. Put the button on the third mark like and it shreds what you need and shuts itself off, but its ready for the next shredding. I would buy this unit as a gift to help family with their shredding needs.

            Comments about Swingline GBC® SC170 12-Sheet Strip-Cut Shredder:

            Online specifications for this product state 15 mins. continuous use, 30 minutes rest.

            Enclosed manual specifications state 2 mins. use, 30 minutes rest.

            I returned it unused.
