Swingline DX20-19 Jam Free Cross Cut Shredder - Do you need a way to discreetly shred those piles of old papers that you kept years ago “just in case” you needed them? Or maybe it’s time to safely obliterate that stack of CDs too scratched to ever work again? Whatever your personal shredding needs may be, the DX20-19 Departmental Shredder is the perfect solution. Designed to safely shred stacks of paper as well as credit cards and CDs, this shredder offers a medium security level (3) to ensure that nobody will be able to ever read through all of the love notes that your middle school crush once wrote you.

Up to 20 sheets can be conveniently placed into this cross cut shredder at once, allowing users to quickly and easily get rid of significant stacks of papers; all paper is sliced into 1/6" x 1-7/9" pieces. To prevent all those finely sliced paper bits from scattering all over your floor, a large 19 gallon bin is affixed to the shredder to catch everything for maximum ease in the cleanup process. If an overeager user attempts to feed this shredder too much at once, a red indicator light illuminates as a warning signal, and simply removing the offending sheets should quickly solve the problem.

As an added bonus, this shredder can safely slice through paper clips and staples, so removing these from paper stacks prior to inserting them into the jaws of the shredder is not necessary. Additionally, Jam-Free technology prevents any paper (or CD, or credit card) jams from blocking up the shredder, so you shouldn’t have to worry about spending time having to unclog your handy shredder. Of course, your energy is not the only energy that this shredder is designed to save. More specifically, the DX20-19 Departmental Shredder is even outfitted with an “auto shutdown system,” in order to conserve electrical energy as well.

Ideal for both in-home and office needs, the DX20-19 Departmental Shredder is sure to become a staple in your workspace. Designed to operate efficiently and effectively with extreme ease, the only thing you won’t want to have this shredder destroy is itself.

  • Non-stop Jam Free™ indicator glows red when too much paper is inserted; LED light glows green when you are within the shredder's capacity.
  • Continuous duty run time lets you shred more paper faster.
  • Shreds DVDs, CDs, credit cards, paper clips, staples and up to 20 sheets at once. Cross-cut (Level P-3) shred style provides everyday security.
  • Intelligent SelfOil™ feature automatically lubricates cutters with synthetic oil to ensure cutters move freely and shred easily even after years of use.
  • Intelligent Self-Cleaning Cutters™ automatically remove shreds that cause build-up and lead to jams.
  • 19-gallon pull-out frame with full bin indicator.
  • Intelligent Power Save™ auto shut down with automatic wake-up conserves energy.
  • Ultra quiet (≤60dB) to ensure minimal disruption in the office environment.

Comments about Swingline DX20-19 Jam Free Cross Cut Shredder:

This is a professional paper shredder that is well worth the money. I've had the shredder for over four years now and have not had one single problem. It is used in a small home business office and provides great shredding ability and great security. Also has numerous great features.

This shredder lasted a year and a half


from Logansport, IN 46947, USA

Comments about Swingline DX20-19 Jam Free Cross Cut Shredder:

I will be trying to get it repaired with the warranty, but I will avoid cross cut next time. It runs slower than a strip cut and jams way more than the strip cut. We have a small department using the shredder, and the bag full light quit working a long time ago so the thing got so full you couldn't even pull out the frame for the bag. I do not think this machine is worth the money.


In January 2013 I bought the item. By September it was problematic.


from Maine

Comments about Swingline DX20-19 Jam Free Cross Cut Shredder:

At first the shredder seemed robust. We have a small medical office. The shredder did not hold up, and I am trying to return it under warranty, but have not had much luck so far.

    The spec lists show two recommended bags. Do you have to use bags or can you just use the bin?

      Bags are not required for the GBC Shredder, but are highly recommended for easily emptying the wastebasket.
