Complete Hard Drive Destruction

The Formax FD 87HDS Hard Drive Shredder provides the best level of security by physically destroying discarded hard drives.

Simply load a hard drive into one of two cutting chambers and close the safety shield. With the push of a button, the rugged solid steel blades grind the hard drive into random sized pieces 1.6” wide and smaller for desktop hard drives and .19” wide and smaller for laptop drives. The shredded pieces fall into a convenient molded plastic waste bin for proper disposal or recycling.

The FD 87HDS cutting blades are made of hardened steel for strength and durability. Each shredding chamber features a metal safety shield, and its own resettable LED counter to keep an accurate tally of shredded drives.

The LED control panel displays operational status and offers jam protection with Auto Reverse and Auto Stop. In addition, sensors stop the motor automatically if any of the doors are open or the waste bin is full. The powerful metal geared motor is housed in an all-metal cabinet with casters for mobility and is designed for low operational noise.

For that added measure of security, trust a Formax FD 87HDS Hard Drive Shredder to ensure your digital data stays out of the wrong hands.
