Trituradora de documentos


Explanation:
La trituradora de documentos FD750 / FD755 es una máquina para la destrucción del material escrito común.
Esta unidad se debe alimentar solamente con papel! El triturado de otro tipo de material puede causar
daños (e.g. por astillas de material duro) o puede dañar la trituradora (e.g. destrucción del sistema de corte).

Mucha suerte y saludos de Oso :^)
