  • Great Shredder!

    The Shredder is quiet, holds more than 10 sheets, slide out to empty paper. If you are looking this is the one!

  • Great product

    I have been using this shredder at my small business. We do not produce a lot of shred, so it does not get heavy use. The shredder says it can handle 14 sheets at a time, but that's pushing it. I would stick to feeding it 8-10 sheets to avoid it overheating during heavy use. I did shred a big pile of paper when it first arrived, and it ran smoothly even after shredding about 10 paper at a time for a solid 2-3 min.

    Fellowes makes a great product, and Im glad I was able to find this shredder as such a great price.

  • A Startling Surprise
    Verified Buyer 11 July, 2014

    I’m a collector, an octogenarian, so have for many years saved cards, letters and poetry from my husband, mother, children and friends; love letters from old boyfriends; receipts, and records of work and business, all too personal to throw in the curbside trash.

    Did I want my children to encounter this mountain of paper clutter? NO! So I bought three shredders one-by-one. By file fifteen, or less in one case, they clattered, stopped, had to be begged to take one sheet at a time. Finally growing discouraged I started looking at other people’s opinions of better shredders; perusing reviews by those who’d tested several shredders and discovered the Fellowes PS-79Ci had a good reputation. I bought one, however I was dubious of its staying power. I am having a grand surprise.
    To empty the previous shredders I had to lift off the tops which were awkward and heavy. And they all filled much too quickly. My Fellowes container is large enough to hold one stuffed file which works for me, the weight being just right to manage as I slide out the basket and dump the pieces into a garbage bag.

    Too often the other shredders were hot, quit working, always before I could get the contents of one file folder through them. This shredder gets hot after about three stuffed files. That’s just right, too, for I’m tired of sitting by then, ready to walk around for awhile, smell my roses and admire the moss rose … or start lunch, drink a cup of coffee, relax.
    Forty-six large black garbage bags of shredded paper later, I am thankful to all of the people who suggested I buy one. I estimate I have forty-six more bags at least to go, but now have the faith … my Fellowes is up to the job. And happily, in a final win-win, a nephew is plowing under the shredded material as mulch for his next year’s garden so my lifelong collection of memories will live on. I visualize them now … as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers.
