Garner PD-4 overview

  • 1Description

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.


Destroys laptop, standard, or network hard drives
Multiple drive destruction with first drive crushed in 20 seconds or less
Durable stainless-steel crushing wedge with automatic height and crush control
Quiet, office-friendly design with no hydraulic fluid
For complete security, best used after drives have been degaussed

    Garner PD-4 reviews

    PD-4 Physical Hard Drive Destroyer is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small and easy to use: Bad Service The Garner PD-4 hard drive destroyer is a decent unit for what we had hoped for. We have used this unit for 1.4 years. My warning on this is that the manufacturer warranty expires in one year. At 1.4 years a sensor on our machine has gone out. We do use this machine often so its kind of a bummer when you spend that much money on a machine that so far doesn't last. I wouldn't waste your time with the extended warranty either, that is a joke in itself.
