Powershred® 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder 4.8 5 687 756
A Startling Surprise 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. September 23, 2010
79CI Review Sorry but they want a review when you just get it and register it so my experience is limited so I gave it an average ratings. They should have you to review it a few months later. The only problem I have is one of the casters will not stay on. My gripe would be on my previous Fellowes Shredder. A gear stripped and they do not sell replacement parts. It was a hard decision to spend more money on a higher price one especially if I need a replacement part in a year and I cannot get it. November 18, 2014
79Ci Shredder I purchased this shredder for my office as a replacement for one that no longer worked (other brand). This Fellowes shredder is already so much better than my previous shredder. I have had it for a month and have had no problems. I love the indicators on the top that show when the basket is full, etc. Between work and home, I have owned several shredders and this one is one of the best for so many reasons. I would definitely recommend this product to others. November 6, 2014
