The Kobra C-100 cross cut shredder is one of the sleekest office models because of its innovative and attractive design. The large 9" throat allows it to shred up to 4 pages at a time into 1/8" x 3/4" pieces. The cutting head automatically starts or stops the machine via a photo cell that activates when paper is inserted. The C-100 automatically stops if the bin is full or door is open; alerting the operator of standard functions with visual indicator lights. The C-100 easily accepts paper clips and staples without damage to the cutting mechanism. Its convenient removable waste bin diminishes the use of plastic bags. The machine rolls on casters for easy maneuverability around the office.
