Special features

The Olympia CC 415.4 is a good choice for those who are looking for a document shredder that is to be used rather occasionally and is economical in power consumption.

The Olympia CC 415.4 is a rather small and slim document shredder. The design is based on the practicality of the device. On the top side, all essential warnings have been attached, which definitely contributes to work safety. The narrow paper feed contributes the rest to it. The control panel is simple and has three buttons with LEDs to indicate the operating mode.


This document shredder also has three operating modes: an auto mode (when a paper is inserted, the machine shreds), a forward mode (the machine shreds continuously) and a reverse mode (when paper jams, the paper is thrown out again). However, special attention must be paid to the Auto button: if the button lights up blue, the machine is ready for operation. If it flashes blue, the waste container has been removed. If it lights red, the shredder is either overcharged or too much paper has been fed. It should be emphasised that the Olympia CC 415.4 has a comparatively low power consumption during the working process (maximum 350.8 W) and in standby mode (maximum 0.6 W). However, it also works slower with a shredding time per single sheet of 10 seconds and with the maximum number of sheets per operation of 13 seconds. At the same time, it is loud with 81.3 dB. Positive to note is that it does not overheat. The maximum temperature is 28.5 degrees Celsius. With maximum capacity, the 69 sheets of paper are destroyed per minute and can shred a maximum of 15 sheets per load.

Capacity & Cut size

Due to the relatively small and narrow shape of the Olympia CC 415.4, the collection container of the device is also small and the capacity is only 16 litres. In our test, it was possible to shred 285 sheets until the bin was full. The cut size is 3.3 cm x 0.4 cm.

At the time of our test, we could not evaluate any customer reviews.
