answer 5
If you shred for too long in a single session it'll get too hot and shut itself off for a while to cool down. Keeps from overheating the motor or worse sparking paper shreds and dust into igniting.

Just imagine shredding away one day for an hour and all of a sudden your shredder catches fire and ignites all of your shredded paper and paper dust! Well, not with this bad boy... It doesn't like fire. It's a cool cat.

No, I would not classify this as a confetti shredder. The pieces are still fairly wide and long. Maybe a 1/5"x1 3/4". I think the website states 7/32"x 1 27/32". They call it a crosscut shredder but is larger pieces than other models.

This is a 2 piece shredder. The top houses the shredder, electric chord and buttons. The top piece sits perfectly on to the basket. There is a little window on the front of the plastic basket to let you see when it is filling up so that you can turn off the shredded and lift up the shredder piece and dump the entire basket. The basket is small enough to lift with one arm when full and dump into a garbage bag. It is small enough to easily handle.

This is not a quiet machine. It is hard to talk over it. If you have a tv on in the room it will interfere with the tv signal. Causing snow or black and white fuzz to scale throughout the screen. It would be hard to watch tv and shred at the same time as the the shredder is loud.

One needs to run reverse at least once every three uses forward.

The problem is that one needs to clear paper jam - it does take a little bit to make sure YOU pick all paper from the cutters.

IT is a LIGHT-weight use machine, and sometimes you need to allow the machine to work at its pace - not YOURS...

This situation has happened to me. ;)
