Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Shredder I had a backlog of shredding to do. This machine shredded 4 years of info without any issues. It jammed twice but backed the paper out itself and then continued to shred. I absolutely love this machine and glad I purchased it. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powershred 73ci We purchased this shredder to replace a 12 year old, low powered shredder that was no longer up to the task. Being in our 60’s my wife and I needed a P4 secured document shredder that has the power to handle over 50 lbs. of old outdated documents (check books, bank statements and mortgage paperwork) that we and our parents had accrued over several decades. The Fellowes Powershred 73Ci has been a Champ at meeting and exceeding our expectations. The 73Ci has done a great job of “grinding up” our decades old mountain of documents. We have experienced NO overheating or jamming problems while we feed-in large amounts of our outdated paperwork. Bottom-line, this is a Great Shredder for any home or small business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I received my Fellowes 73ci this morning and have been using it all day. I think I have to give myself a rest before I do this machine. It has been marvelous. I have shredded 2 good sized boxes of old taxes, legal paperwork, and an enormous amount of other things. I still have 5 boxes to go and know that it will stand up to the best. The only thing is that the container is a bit cumbersome for me to empty into a bag. I think I need those large leaf bags and it will be fine. The shredding apparatus is great and I have only been putting about 7 sheets in at a time. It seems to slow down if it is more than that. But overall I am very satisfied with its operation. I really like the Non-jam feature. If it does jam either press the back button OR keep holding down the forward button and there wont be a problem. I would recommend this machine highly. Very quiet for a shredder. February 10, 2015
