With all the time we spend on preaching preventative maintenance on shredders, we'd thought we'd have a bit of fun and post some funny videos of people doing the complete opposite. What follows is a collection of videos that will be growing, so check back to see the latest and most creative shredder torture. Always remember that shredders can be very dangerous, so don't try this at home. Oh, and remember, that shredder oil is your best friend, it probably wouldn't help if you decide to shred a license plate and/or light the shredder on fire. Be sure to leave some comments if you know of any other videos that we can add!
Video 1: Paper Shredder AbuseIt's pretty silly that we even have to state this, but please don't try this with your home or office shredder. This type of behavior is not only incredibly abusive to your poor shredder, it is also dangerous to you and is certainly not covered by any warranty on earth. With that... please enjoy! We recognize that, for every person that enjoys the simple satisfaction of watching a shredder eat paper, there are probably 10 more that consider paper a "gateway drug" to more destruction behavior. The star of this video is certainly the latter. Every good shredding job should begin with a stylish whistle, so that is a nice opening touch. However, forceful feeding of materials other than paper can lead to serious cutting head damage, and breakage of the gears... oh my! The might seem ridiculous to some people, but our service department sees shredder death by scissors more often than you think. After reviewing this video, our service department just had two questions for this upstanding citizen:
- Where did you find a tape?
- Don't you have some homework to be doing?
