****** Page 4 ****** TURNING ON YOUR SHREDDER 1. 2. 3. 4. ON, OFF and REVERSE are controlled by the black Rocker Switch (3) on the top of the shredder. Moving the switch to the “l” (ON) position places the shredder in the standby mode. Note: Shredder will run momentarily. Moving the switch to the center or “O” (OFF) position turns the shredder off. The REVERSE position “R” will be discussed in “CLEARING A PAPER JAM”. SHREDDING Turn shredder on. Insert paper squarely into Feed Opening (1 A light barrier (2) will auto- matically activate the shredding mechanism. Continue feeding paper into the Feed Opening until the shredding mechanism begins to draw the paper in. At this point, allow the paper to feed into the shredder on its own. Once the paper has passed completely through the shredding mechanism, the electronic controls will automatically stop the machine. Microfiche and transparencies can also be shredded in the same manner as paper, however, you should shred a piece of paper after every 8 or 10 sheets of plastic. This helps clean plastic particles out of the shredding mechanism. ALWAYS TURN SHREDDER OFF IF IT WILL BE UNATTENDED FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME 4

Do not use water or solvents. Make sure you disconnect your shredder from its power source before cleaning. Paper shredders, like all mechanical equipment, need proper maintenance to ensure efficient operation. Periodic lubrication of the cutting blades is important to offset the friction generated within the cutting head. Frequency of lubrication will vary depending on the shred size and the amount of usage. A strip-cut shredder receiving light use (1 2 hours per week) will require lubrication only once or twice a month, while the same machine used 1 — 2 hours per day will require lubrication weekly. A cross-cut shredder should be lubricated every 1/2 hour of shredding time to maintain maximum capacity and efficiency. The procedure for lubricating your shredder is simple, and can be performed by any operator. The oil is packaged in a squeeze bottle and is applied directly to the cutting blades through the feed opening (3). Run a fine stream of lubricant from one side of the feed opening to the other. Run the shredder in REVERSE for a few seconds to help distribute the lubricant evenly. You can now continue shredding as usual. DAHLE Shredder Oil is the only lubricant you should use in your paper shredder. It has been specially formulated so as not to leave any residue that could attract dust and clog the shredding mechanism. You can order DAHLE Shredder Oil (item # 740) from your local dealer. Repairs on your paper shredder should only be performed by qualified technicians. If you need service, contact your local dealer, or you can contact DAHLE North America Customer Service between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm EST at (800) 995-1379. NOTE: SHREDDER WILL NOT OPERATE UNLESS DOOR IS COMPLETELY CLOSED 6
