Oiling is an essential part of shredder maintenance, machines should be oiled on a regular basis and before any period of intensive shredding.
Shredding produces a surprising amount of paper dust which builds up inside the cutting assembly. Without frequent oiling, the accumulated detritus compacts, putting strain on the cutters, motor, gears and bearings. Failing to oil a shredder will inevitably reduce its lifetime.
Swordfish Shredder oil comes in a handy 240ml bottle with a special micro-dispenser to suit your shredder model and the frequency at which it is likely to require oiling.
