This is an excellant shredder! I did upgrade my purchase in order to obtain the larger horsepower motor. It operates effortlessly to shred the max. allowable. I feel this will be the last shredder I'll have to buy and was worth the upgrade cost. The added bonus is that it was several hundred dollars less and arrived in record time.
