The Geha Home & Office X6 CD is a model that performs well in the midfield in the test. In terms of both speed and size, there are more recommendable models. Among other things, a readiness indicator would have been good.
The Geha Home & Office X6 CD is the smallest device in the test and therefore takes up very little space. A special feature is also the very small particles, which provide you with a sufficiently high level of security when shredding your private papers.
The Geha document shredder is small and compact and fits well into any office thanks to its simple black colour scheme. It is also ideal for home use.
Starting up the shredder
While there is no readiness indicator, the Geha shredder is equipped with a temperature sensor. This means that the device cannot overheat and damage to the motor is virtually impossible. If overheating occurs, the paper will get stuck in the feed tray and you will not be able to activate the reverse mode. It takes about 20 minutes to get the machine ready for use again.
Collecting volume, cut size and additional
Like all models in the test, the Geha Home & Office X6 CD is equipped with two operating modes: "automatic" and "reverse". As soon as the paper touches the feed tray, shredding starts automatically. Of course, you always have the option of activating reverse mode if the paper gets jammed. The capacity of up to 45 sheets in one minute is convincing with this model. The collecting bin also has a capacity for 45 sheets and is therefore full after just one minute. In order to empty it, you have to lift the cutting unit including the motor, which is quite easy thanks to the handle.
The Geha document shredder is suitable for shredding confidential documents for both private and business use. At 5 x 35 millimetres, the particle size is so small that no personal data can be detected. However, you should allow a little more time, as staples and paper clips must be completely removed from the files. If you want to make use of the 2-year extra warranty, remember to keep the original carton.
By the way: with the Geha Home & Office X6 CD shredder you can shred not only paper but also CDs/DVDs and credit cards. This waste ends up in a specially designed collection container, which you simply secure inside the paper collection basket.
