My shredder is rarely used but when I do use it the use is quite intensive. I find that providing I do not feed more than 4-5 sheets at a time, it will happily shred its way continuously through a hundred or so sheets without overheating. In recent shred, it stopped only once, when the container was full and cleared itself after a few minutes to run again. In continuous use there can be a slight whine from the blades but a dose of oil (or even better one of Swordfish's "monthly" lubrication cards) soon cures that. Over all, this is decent domestic use shredder for the money.
