    This from our local Freecycle Group: "Offered is this Bosch AXT shredder with powerful 2000HP motor."

    I assume that was supposed to say 2000W?

    Horsepower Shmorsepower!
    2000W sounds more reasonable, but not as much fun.

    Either way, it'll get rid of a lot of confidential documents...

    Yes, shred all the things.

    Shred like a Trump WH intern.

    1499KW seems like a lot of fun!

    A 1.5 Megawatt Shredder? It's sounding better all the time! *Power station not included
    I bet it would be great for shredding 3.5" hard drives, then move up to old beige PC cases, then whole cars :confused:

    1.5 megawatts does sound more impressive than 2000hp.

    1.21 Gigawatts would be far more impressive. Can you get shredders with gull-wing doors?

    Yes, that's what I cal a shredder.
    Not 100% it's as epic as it first looks, I bet the engines have been taken out first...

    Runs from a 768HP diesel engine, it clearly is less than half the power of the mighty 2000HP shredder
