The Garner PD-5 Hard Drive Destroyer uses 15,500 pounds of crushing power to physically destroy hard drives containing your sensitive data. This powerful, high-speed, destroyer bends, breaks, and mangles hard drives, including data platters and other internal components, thwarting data recovery. The PD-5 is software-independent, destroying up to eight laptop-, two standard-, or one full-height hard drive per cycle. Drives are destroyed in 18 seconds or less, meeting NSA emergency-destruction guidelines.
