GBC Shredmaster SC 060 Wastebasket Paper Shredder Review

*The GBC Shredmaster SC 60 paper shredder is designed to sit on top of your existing wastebasket or trash receptacle.

*It is a strip cut shredder that is designed for moderate home office and small office shredding. It allows you to place a shredder beside or under your desk so that you can destroy important documents instead of throwing them in the trash.

*The Shredmaster SC 060 is a larger version of the SC 030 shredder. It is built for larger sized waste baskets and shreds more sheets at one time.

Strengths / Features:

*The GBC Shredmaster SC-060 is capable of shredding up to 9 sheets of paper at a time without the need to remove staples or paperclips. It is an ideal solution for personal shredding of documents at your desk or for home use in shredding credit card applications, junk mail and private documents.

*The Shredmaster SC-060 is designed to fit on rectangular waste baskets that are between 13" and 16" wide and thus will fit on most standard office trash cans. Once placed on most wastebaskets it is still possible to throw out normal garbage without removing the SC-60.

*The Shredmaster SC-060 has three settings. You can set it to shred your documents automatically when you insert them into the throat. You can turn the shredder on manually into the forward position so that it will shred small sheets or to help remove paper jams. You can also set the shredder to reverse in order to remove paper jams that might occur if you attempt to shred too many documents at one time.

*The SC-60 opperates at a speed of 15 feet per minute which means that it will take approximately 4 seconds to shred one letter sized document. It comes with an excellent warranty covering the entire shredder and motor for two years and the cutting blades for five years. Plus, GBC is one of the easiest companies to deal with if you have any problems. In most cases they will simply replace the machine for you.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

*The SC60 Shredmaster Shredder is designed for shredding moderate amounts of paper. Although it is technically rated for shredding up to 500 sheets of paper per day, it can not shred continuously for more than about 2 minutes. If you shred continuously for longer than this the motor will overheat and the shredder will turn itself off. If this happens, the SC-60 requires a cool down period of approximately 30 minutes before it can be used again.

*The SC-60 is a strip cut shredder that cuts your documents into strips that are 1/4" (6mm) wide. Although a strip cut shredder is secure enough for most personal and small office applications, it does produce more waste than a cross cut shredder. With the SC-60 it is possible to quickly fill up a standard size wastebasket with shredded material.

*The SC-60 has a 9" wide opening for shredding documents. This is designed for shredding letter sized documents that are fed into the shredder with the 8.5" end first. This isn't a huge issue. However, it does prevent you from shredding larger format documents and slows down the shredding process considerably over a shredder with a throat that is 11" or wider.


*The SC-060 is a great shredder for individuals looking to put a shredder on the top of their existing waste basket. It allows you to shred your documents without loosing the ability to use your trash can for other items and helps to make shredding easy and convenient.

*However, the SC-60 is not a high volume shredder and is not a good fit for applications where more than a few sheets will need to be shredded at any given time. Users who attempt to use the SC-60 to shred even moderate volumes of paper at one time will most likely find that the shredder will shut itself off leaving everyone frustrated.
