Worth Repeating

Structa , Fellowes
26 October 2015
  • Summary: We already had this model when given the opportunity to replace it with anything we wanted. We decided that because our old model was still running strong and easy enough to maintain, that we'd like another, newer model and are pleased to have it!

Good product

Anonymous, Newegg
22 July 2015
  • Summary: I would recommend this, unit is pretty heavy duty for normal office use, good safety feature set, and I like the automatic oiling function built in. would like this feature on something more down-to-earth for home users as well.
  • Pros: Works as expected prompt delivery
  • Cons: unit we received had damaged from factory drivetrain, but manufacturer had repairmen out and unit fixed within 24 hrs of report.

XLNT Shredder!

Fab4Girl , Fellowes
6 April 2011
  • Summary: Replaced a very old, NOISY shredder with a Fellowes. Only issue seems to be slower shredding, but that could be due to fact Fellowes is a criss-cross and old machine did strips. Old machine sounded like a jet taking off. This is a great shredder!
  • Pros: Quiet Operation, Sheet Capacity, Quality Construction, Warranty, Shreds Credit Cards, Staples and CDs, Service Guarantee, Safety Features, Secure Cut Size, Jam Resistance, Mess Reduction

Average

Jill , Fellowes

  • Summary: The machine is basically an average machine. I was quite surprised since we paid a pretty penny for it. It's quite loud. But besides that, it does what it is supposed to do without any trouble.
  • Pros: Sheet Capacity, Shreds Credit Cards, Staples and CDs, Safety Features, Jam Resistance
  • Cons: Mess Reduction, Quiet Operation, Jam Resistance

Quite happy with the shredder

Jodi, Staples
2 September 2010
  • Summary: For the most part, we really like this shredder. One of the biggest downfalls is that it does not seem to take as many sheets of paper as advertised. On the positive side--the collection box in the bottom is much better then the rack we had on the last shedder.

Oil problems

DJ , Fellowes
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I researched shredders for a month before I chose to get this one for our office. When it works, it's great. The first one I got had a missing part and leaked oil. I had that part replaced but still had problems with oil leaking. They sent me a new machine.
