Powershred® 73Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder 4.7 5 36 40
So far, so good. Quiet, smart, and smart-looking. Handles jobs easily. I got an excellent deal on this shredder (it was on clearance and a display model) while looking for something to replace my old store-brand 6-sheet shredder that finally shredded itself after 5 years. I saw the reviews on this model and considering the deal decided to get it. I got it home and was immediately impressed by it before I even turned it on. It feels...SOLID. I oiled it and turned it on, and this is the quietest shredder I have ever used. It's also good-looking, smart, and tough. It handled the work I threw at it with no problem, and I like the sensing technology that takes the guesswork out of what is too much and what is too little of a load. Finally, with a child in the house the touch sensing safety stop feature is a must. I didn't even know that this was available. If my boy even gets his hands AROUND the feed slot, the device will detect it and immediately shut off. This one's a keeper, and if it holds up (according to the reviews I read, it will) I will be purchasing only Fellowes shredders from now on. I'm very impressed. December 17, 2014
Past Customer I chose a Fellowes Shredder because the one I am replacing lasted 10 - 15 years. That was all I needed to know that I wanted a Fellowes Shredder. Past experience was great..So I was on a mission to find a sale and along with that I found features I did not know existed. Like the pullout bin, shuts off when your fingers touch the top and shreds up to 12 pages at a time. These were all extra bonuses.. November 30, 2014
FELLOWES SHREDDER 73ci - BMW OF SHREDDERS I just used the shredder and it blew me away. I was looking for a shredder that offered large capacity and quiet operation. In this product, I got both of those options and then some... I also got a product that looks extremely professional and the quality is outstanding. I used to hate documents. Now, I found a task I will forward to complete. Thank you for creating the best shredder ever. I will tell everyone, they need this product. I will never buy another brand. November 13, 2014
