These include up to three 550-sheet drawers and a 2,000-sheet large capacity feeder. With the exception of the large capacity feeder, the other trays accept up to legal-sized (8.5″ x 14″) paper.

There is a 100-sheet dual-scan document feeder (DADF). that scans both sides of a page (at up to 120 ipm duplex) in a single pass. In addition, there’s an optional offline stapler.
