What are the sizes of paper shredders?

Paper shredders come in a variety of sizes. Most home and small businesses don’t have the volume of paper that justifies an office or departmental shredder. Nevertheless, you should determine the size of your shredder based on the number of users, frequency of use and volume of paper/documents to shred. The actual dimensions of shredders are also varied and you should be able to find the size listed with the product specifications. Typically, the bigger the capacity the larger the shredder (although this doesn’t always hold true). A home/personal machine is usually about 1-2 feet in width and about 2 feet high. Midsize office shredders are in the range of 2-4 feet high and about 2 feet wide. Departmental shredders can be as large as 5 feet high and just as wide, although many models are in the 3-4’ high x 2’ wide. Industrial shredders are even larger (10’ x 5’ and 4-5’ deep) and will have space and power considerations. You also will deal with larger freight charges the bigger the machine, as well as possible setup and installation concerns.
