The PD-4 by Garner is a physical hard drive destroyer that bends hard drives up to 2" thick permanently damaging the drive and internal disk. Listed on the NSA/CSS Evaluated products list for hard drive destruction.
The PD-4 used a powerful motor to drive a steel wedge through hard drives and other electronic media storage drives breaking the housing and all internal drives. This prevents the disk from spinning and guarantees to render the drive unreadable.
The PD-4 is the lightest electronic crusher in the market and has a quiet, office friendly attractive design. Crushes multiple drives at a time so it is capable of destroying 240 drives per hour.
NOTE: For proper hard drive destruction, always us a hard drive degausser to remove data from the drive prior to using a drive destruction device. Degaussing guarantees data cannot be recovered from the small pieces of disk remaining after destruction because all stored data is erased. A degausser magnetically deletes stored data permanently from the storage device so when used in conjunction with a hard drive shredder, bender, or punch, the data is deleted and unrecoverable.
