    ITEM#: 24972737

    A powerful, hefty centralized office shredder, the ideal. 3104 cross-cut P-5 is designed for 8 - 10 users. Continuous operation and high-quality, solid steel cutting heads minimize downtime while shredding paper, staples, paper clips, and credit cards. The 12" feed opening and large, light-weight, impact-resistant, easily-removable 32-gallon bin make the 3104 perfect for a large department, floor, or small office needs. HIPAA and FACTA compliant, and certified to shred Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), the 3104 shredder is federally accepted to protect information and social security numbers against identity theft. The large but quiet 1 horsepower motor chews through 17 sheets of paper at once and up to 432 sheets per minute. The high-quality, wooden, easy-open cabinet is mounted on casters for easy mobility. A patented, electronically-controlled, transparent safety shield in the feed opening protects fingers and hands, and the patented Electronic Capacity Control (ECC) monitors and grades document feeding to prevent jams. German engineering and manufacturing ensure superior quality that will provide many years of trouble-free operation. The 3104 is covered by a lifetime warranty on cutting shafts and wheels, 3-year limited warranty on all other parts excluding wearables, and 90-day limited warranty on labor or exchange at ideal's discretion.
