A Shredding Review of the GoECOlife GXC185Pi 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder
Reviewing the GoECOlife GXC185Pi 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder
By: Mono Machines
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. http://www.monomachines.com/
The GoECOlife GXC185Pi 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder can shred CDs, Credit Cards, DVDs, Paper. 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).
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.
At 7.85 gallons, the GoECOlife GXC185Pi 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder is a personal/deskside machine. You won’t be able to shred too much before you have to empty it, but presumably you won’t be shredding that frequently. If you will, we recommend that you jump up to something with a bigger bin size.
The 9.06 inch throat on this machine gives you a little bit of breathing room when you’re shredding regular size paper and the option to shred a few odd shaped things. If you really have large paper, then you’ll need to look at machine with something larger than a 10” throat.
This machine does not come with an auto-oiler and does not have the option to have one installed. Although automatic oilers are not necessary to maintain your machine, they do take the guess-work out of maintenance. Don’t hold it against the machine though as you can easily oil the machine yourself on regular intervals.
The GoECOlife GXC185Pi 18-Sheet Cross-Cut Green Commercial Shredder comes with a Two year limited warranty, with 7 years on cutters. 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.
The MSRP is $549.99 but you can find it for much less online if you look around. Don’t let the price deter you until you do a little bit of comparison shopping first.
