DB-6000 Destroyer

Data Security, Inc.'s DB-6000 destruction device is easy to operate. Open the door, insert the hard disk drive (HDD), and rotate the ambidextrous handle to begin the crushing process. The indestructible ram descends with a force exceeding 60,000 psi which bends, folds and crushes the platters and circuitry of the hard drive, rendering it unusable. For greater performance and speed, convert to drill-powered mode. Simply remove and stow the handle, attach the supplied bit adapter and cordless drill to power the unit. (Drill not included.) NSA approved, the DB-6000 is a durable and safe alternative to hard drive shredding.


  • Destroys multiple hard drives simultaneously for fast destruction (up to 1,100 per hour).
  • Choice of manual or drill-powered operation. Ambidextrous for left or right-handed users.
  • Listed in the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List for Hard Drive Destruction.

DB-6000 Performance

For greatest performance and speed, remove and stow the handle. Insert the supplied drive-bit adaptor into a rechargeable cordless drill and pair with one of two drive connectors (ergonomically positioned for the left or right-handed user). Utilizing the power of a cordless drill, operators can quickly and easily damage a high volume of media in a short amount of time.

The DB-6000 is designed with safety in mind. A safety lock toggles to limit operation to one power source at a time. The transparent, shatterproof safety door allows the user to monitor the damaging process while being protected from flying debris. The DB-6000 includes a convenient debris collection tray for quick and safe clean up.

Department of Defense magnetic media sanitization regulations require the use of an approved degausser, at minimum. In addition, they recommend degaussing be followed by physical damage prior to disposal. For complete compliance, pair the DB-4000 with a degausser listed in the National Security Agency’s Evaluated Products List-Degausser.
