Large shredders are also called departmental shredders or heavy duty paper shredders, these machines are almost as big in height as a table and could be compared in size with a domestic washing machine. These shredders can be placed in a central location near the common printer or photocopy machine, making it more secure to shred at source of any unwanted/misprinted documents

These paper shredders come with 1 – 1.5 kW motor and can shred continuously without any cooling periods, so whenever anybody has to shred it is always on standby mode.
