Plastic Gear FAIL


Looks like I can get a replacement by calling 1-800-222-2310 and ordering it, but if they offer replacements in metal, why use plastic in the original when it appears to be the across-the-board complaint?

Overall, great package: dedicated credit card/CD slot, shredded both without any issues. Rarely jammed, even with heavier paper loads, reverse function fixed that immediately

VF1012MX-08 Gear #2, a primary driving gear, is plastic. After 7 months of moderate usage, the plastic gear failed (worn/shredded). Must pay for replacement

Great shredder


I shred a lot of papers and this one works great. I had one for probably 15 yrs or more and it finally gave out on me. This is smaller but just as good.
