Product Manual

Powershred® 450Ms Microshred Shredder 4.3 5 76 78
Personal Use I purchased the Fellowes 450MS micro-cut shredder on May 9, 2014 after reviewing what micro-cut shredders are currently available at a reasonable price, i.e, <$250. I therefore don't have much experience with it, but I am quite pleased with the results so far. The shredder is performing exactly as described by the manufacturer. It is able to shred papers put in one after another, and sometimes up to 3-4 at one time (I did not experiment with more simultaneously) for up to about 10 minutes (I didn't time it, however) and responded quickly to a very infrequent jam. The results are tiny pieces of paper that would be virtually impossible to decipher. I have not tried to use papers with staples, but have used some thick paper pieces like example credit cards that are like thin cardboard, and it had no trouble with them. It does heat up and stop eventually as expected in order to cool down. Hence, if you don't need the great security provided by micro-cut shredders and do want to shred for more than 8-10 mins at a time, I'd recommend investigating cross-cut shredders that can shred for a longer time before stopping. Also, I recommend the use of appropriately large kitchen plastic bags (the ones provided are larger than needed) for catching the shredded waste. Then you don't have to deal with the electrostatic problem that some others have said result in a messy dumping of all the shreds after the bin is full. Finally, for a longer lifetime of the shredder, Fellowes Inc (1-800-955-0959) recommends use of an updated set of instructions for oiling (different from the instructions in their manual provided with the shredder). These new instructions require 3 times more oiling, i.e., once every third of a bin rather than once per bin. May 12, 2014
Great Purchase It would be great if it had a "Standby" setting so you would not have to turn it on and off everytime you use it October 8, 2013
Best Shredder on Market Just purchased the powershred 450Ms Micro-Cut shredder as a replacement for a Fellowes shredder purchased 10-15 years ago. Great shredder, quiet motor & love the micro-cut! Would recommend Fellowes Paper Shredder as being best on market! August 1, 2013
