Yes you can. Just make sure that the plugs are not in a position where they can be kicked or trodden upon and that the cord itself will not trip people. Also make sure that the wire gauge of the extension is at least a little thicker than the shredder original cord. (Use a plugged extension cord, do not attempt a wire joint).

What kind of extension cord fits it?

The machine probably uses a plug like the ones used on computers. It is a smaller plug, like a rectangle with two of the corners tapered. A regular extension cord will not work. Take it back, and look for a power cord for a computer. Take a picture of the plug on the machine you are trying to use before you go to the store. The clerk should be able to help you find the right cord.

Our Oztec 1050 Shredder will go into reverse, but not forward. Any solutions? Thank you, Bob

i don't know this particular shredder, but its possible you have a bad power switch, or if you have power when switch is in forward position, then you may have either dirty sensors in the middle of the throat, or sometimes they use a microswitch and that may be bad.

I have an achiever heavy-duty crosscut shredder that I purchased in 2002. Since that time I have actually used the shredder around 5 times. The shredder turns on, shred for about 2-3 mins., then it stops....

does it finish the sheet of paper then shut off , or does it stop halfway thru the paper?

unplug the unit , open it up and see if theres staples or junk jammed in the cutting wheels/gears

there supose to turn off once its finished with the paper and turn back on when the next paper is inserted , theres a lil sensor that turns it on and a limit switch that turns it off

Where can I BUY THE cords at.

I've never seen the ad for a weed thrasher but, as far as a replacement cord goes. You can buy a extension cord of the same size and install it. Just cut off the end. The wires within the cord need to be the same size or bigger, never smaller. Also it's important to replace a 3 wire cord with a 3 wire cord. You can use a 3 wire cord with a machine that came with a 2 wire cord, just cut off the green wire at the machine end. Your wire colors should be white, black, and green. Black and white are your power wires and green is your ground. Usually black and white are interchangeable but, on occasion switching them may make the unit run backwards so install them in their original position. Write down where they where hooked up and install your new cord in the same places.
