The Royal ASF80 Micro-Cut Shredder is the
next level in document security. What makes this unit really stand apart from
other shredders is the auto-feed feature. Just turn on the ASF80, lift-up the
auto-feed tray and load up to 80 sheets of standard 20 lb. bond paper into the
tray and walk away. The ASF80 does the rest. Using four small rubber rollers,
the unit will carefully grab each individual sheet and direct it into the
shredding slot to be destroyed. This is very much like the way your laser
printer or copier feeds paper to be printed. The photo sensor starts the
shredding process and turns off the shredder once it has completed its task. Two
lift-up access doors allow you to safely clear any paper jams, if they should
occur. You can also manually shred additional sheets or credit cards through the
manual 8 7/8” shredder slot while the ASF80 is in the auto-feed cycle.
You can also manually feed up to 8 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper in a single pass
for those smaller everyday jobs. In either manual or auto feed, the powerful .84
HP AC motor easily shreds those documents into tiny 4mm x 12mm unreadable
pieces. Credit cards are quickly destroyed as well through the same paper slot.
The easy-to-use control panel is located on the top of the shredder with clear
access to the power on/off, forward and reverses switches. Also on the top panel
are LED lights indicating power ready, overheat, overload and bin full
Royal provides a large 4.5-gallon pullout waste bin to store the shreds until
you are ready to discard them. An LED sensor will light when the waste bin is
ready to be emptied or you can view the shreds through the clear viewing window
located in the center of the waste bin.
The ASF80 has a beautiful sturdy glossy-black cabinet that will give you years
of dependable use. The ASF80 is a perfect workhorse for any small office, home,
school or organization.
