Very Functional and stylish product
I had this same product that lasted 5 years. When it was time to replace it, I looked at other styles but came back to this one. There are very few (if any) other styles that you can pull the basket out from the front versus the top. I could not use a shredder that you emptied by removing the top due to the cabinet that is above this shredder.

Best purchase ever
Purchased this many years ago for my home and business use. During that time others have used(abused) it, fed too many sheets sometimes jamming it, running it for extended periods (20 min and up) but with a little 3in one oil and me clearing the paper out she always keep going. Well they were finally able to strip the gears so now only can feed one sheet at a time if I am lucky. Time to replace it with the same style, and maybe fix this one if parts available as a back-up. With the tip out basket it is the easiest one I have found to empty.

Mine did too . . .
Like other reviewers, my machine made it a couple of years before the forward "gear" died with full reverse motion! I was shocked because my previous Fellowes shredder wore out rather than died out! It seems this model had a miscue; next timeI'll read reviews first . . .
