The high-speed, high-powered PD-5 is the fastest and lightest NSA/CSS EPL-listed hard drive destroyer on the market. Designed to meet evolving technology challenges, its amplified crushing power mangles hard drives in under 20 seconds, including the latest helium (He) drives. Designed for use inside data centers and office environments, the energy-efficient PD-5 destroys multiple drives at one time with no messy hydraulics.
Add the optional SSD-1 Solid-State Destroyer and IRONCLAD Destruction Verification System to automatically generate Certificates of Destruction with JPG images of the destroyed media.
How to Destroy Solid-State
Meeting the NSA CSS Evaluated Products List requirement for Hard Disk Drive Destruction Services, the PD-5 operates as an NSA Listed Second Stage Hard Drive Destroyer when paired with Garner's NSA/CSS EPL-listed TS-1XT degausser.
For those not needing NSA level degaussing, the PD-5 can be paired with Garner's high-volume HD-3XTL degausser or our economical and fast HD-2XT degausser.
Built-in performance checker: Garner's destroyers have built-in performance verification systems. On-board diagnostics confirm the crush depth of every cycle, ensuring destruction every time.
LCD Screen: Displays cycle count and diagnostics.
SCAN-1X Media Destruction Report software and scanner (optional): Creates media destruction reports with date, time, user ID, serial number, and verification of each cycle.
IRONCLAD Destruction Certificate (optional): Create the ultimate proof-of-destruction reports. Combine the PD-5 hard drive destroyer with Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD® Destruction Verification with JPG Image Capture System. IRONCLAD creates a Certificate of Destruction Report by compiling user, media, and diagnostic data from the PD-5 hard drive destroyer for auditing and record-keeping purposes.
Add the SSD-1 patented solid state destroyer. Ninety spikes puncture, perforate, waffle, and demolish individual memory chips on solid-state media, thumb drives, mobile phones, and SSHDs permanently preventing data retrieval.
The PD-5 requires no hydraulic fluid to operate, eliminating concerns about messy fluid spills or the need to place the PD-5 on a spill-containment mat. Its rugged, yet lightweight (79 lbs. or 35.9 kg) components and quiet operation make it perfect for data centers and office environments.
The PD-5 will help you satisfy the most stringent government and industry standards, including:
Listed on the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List (EPL) for Hard Drive Bending Devices, the PD-5 was laboratory tested to ensure disk destruction to the level required for the U.S. government classified Top-Secret data.
Garner Products, Inc., leads the data destruction industry in product safety by being the first and only U.S. hard drive degausser and destroyer manufacturer to earn certification of our products to UL, IEC, and CSA safety standards from a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).

We are proud to be a manufacturer in California, the state that sets the standard for environmental protection. At every stage of the manufacturing process, from product design through manufacturing and shipping, we apply processes and use materials that minimize environmental impact.
Unlike shredded hard drives, drives crushed by the PD-5 are recyclable.
As the fastest, lightest NSA/CSS 9-12-compliant HDD destroyer on the market, the feature-filled PD-5 offers distinct advantages. Take it on the road with our optional MIL-SPEC transport case with built-in wheels. Or create a complete mobile or workstation solution by combining the PD-5 with our NSA/CSS-EPL-listed TS-1XT degausser, high-volume HD-3XTL degausser, or high-speed HD-2XT degausser.
Our custom-built, smooth-rolling cart includes our NSA-Listed hard drive and tape degausser and NSA-Listed hard drive destroyer.
Your choice of data destruction equipment securely mounts to the cart creating a comprehensive mobile media sanitization solution.
Locking storage allows you to securely store media awaiting processing.
Gain mobility while satisfying stringent security requirements by pairing a transport case with your selection of data destruction products.
Pair our destroyer with an industry-leading hard drive degausser that fits your data security need.
Complete erasure, destruction, and verification in a small footprint.
PD-5 is report capable with our SCAN-1X Media Destruction Report generating software and scanner.
Built-in wheels and a telescoping handle enables easy transport, eliminating the need to move hard drives to another location for destruction. Has a built-in slot to hold optional SSD-1.
Keep your PD-5 accessories in one place. The SSD-CADDY securely locks into the base of the PD-5 to conveniently hold the SSD-1 solid-state destroyer and SSD-MT solid-state media transport sleeves.
Large blue recycle bin makes it easy to store media that has been destroyed and ready to be recycled.
Color-coded media bins. The red bin is labeled “Media to be Degaussed” and the yellow bin is labeled “Degaussed Media”.
