Bonsaii EverShred C149-C Paper Shredder Review

The Bonsaii EverShred C149-C is a heavy duty cross cut shredder which has little problem carving up virtually any material which you throw into it. The following review provides specific details about the functions and capabilities of this beast of a machine.

Built for Large Shredding Jobs

Measuring 14 x 11 x 21.5 inches and weighing 20 lbs, the Bonsaii EverShred C149-C Shredder has the power to match its size. Before purchasing, it is important to make sure you have the room to store this unit.

It is equipped with wheels for mobility purposes and a pull out 6-gallon waste receptacle bin, so you do not have to lift it to empty out the shredded material.  There is also a bin window so you can view the level of the waste and determine when it needs emptying.

Shreds Heavy Stock Items

Utilizing extremely durable blades and a cross-cut shredding process, the Bonsaii EverShred slices paper into pieces which are approximately .2 inches by 1.8 inches.  It will save you time inserting papers into the feed by being able to shred up to 18 sheets with a single pass and lasting up to 60 minutes.

User-Friendly Functionality

Equipped with a single switch with the off, auto, and reverse (for clearing paper jams) settings, the Bonsaii EverShred is simple to use.  Its cooling system permits the unit to work for up to 60 minutes continuously, so you do not have to wait for the system to cool off.

Also, it has a noise level of 62 dB, which is relatively quiet for a machine with such prolific capabilities.

The Final Word

Due to its heavy duty performance and several advanced features, the Bonsaii EverShred C149-C Shredder is not an inexpensive machine, as it lists for approximately $180.00. This unit is designed for individuals and business that require the use of a large amount of shredding rather often.

It has a rather large build for a shredder and will require ample space to store, therefore, it is important to make sure you have the required space. Although it is a heavy unit, it does have four wheels which permit you to move it around as you see fit without a problem.

The pull-out waste bin is also a plus in that it does not require you to lift the unit to empty the waste (as is the case with many other units).
