The HD-2 Degausser Kit with PD-4 Drive Destroyer Kit from Garner includes an NSA-listed degausser and a hard drive destroyer. The HD-2 Hard Drive and Tape Degausser erases hard drives up to 1.5" high (laptop, desktop and network), and features quiet operation and a 60-second cycle time. The PD-4 Physical Hard Drive Destroyer crushes multiple drives at once and features a stainless-steel crushing wedge.
Garner HD-2 Hard Drive & Tape Degausser 110-120 VAC (50/60 Hz)
The Garner HD-2 Hard Drive & Tape Degausser erases hard drives (laptop, desktop, and network up to 1" high), and high coercivity tape media, including all formats of LTO (1,2,3,4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, AIT, 8mm and more, all without any adapters. With a continuous duty rating (no cooling necessary), quiet operation, and a 60-second cycle time, the HD-2 can fit right on a desktop.
The HD-2 is exceptionally user-friendly. Simply place your media into the drawer on the right side of the HD-2, and push the "Erase" button. Within 60 seconds your media is erased; open the drawer, and remove your erased media.
The HD-2 has been independently tested, and certified to meet both ANSI, and CE standards. Built-in safeguards check the stored power before each erase cycle ensuring complete erasure every time. Audible tones, and lighted push buttons report the status of the HD-2 to the operator.
The HD-2 produces an erasing field many times stronger than the erasing fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives, and tape drives. The field strength, along with the encompassing magnetic field ensure the data is no longer recoverable by computer or laboratory attacks. Since the HD-2 does not rely on software, the HD-2 will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface.
The HD-2 will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal.

Garner PD-4 Physical Hard Drive Destroyer
Optimally used after degaussing, the Garner PD-4 Physical Hard Drive Destroyer provides quick, secure destruction of hard drives containing sensitive data. Just like a mini Death Star compactor, the PD-4 destroys by crushing, applying approximately 10,500 pounds of force to drives in its destruction chamber. The PD-4 is software-independent, destroying up to six laptop-, two standard-, or one full-height hard drive per cycle. The first drive is destroyed in 20 seconds or less, meeting NSA emergency-destruction guidelines.
The Garner PD-4 Destroyer automatically adjusts its crushing power to the drive's height, and can run continuously without cooling down between cycles. Its office-friendly design is quiet, free of hydraulic fluid, and offers push-button operation.
