Spoke too soon
This is my second review. I wrote my first review before using my M-6C for more than a page or two of shredding. Unfortunately after shredding VERY CAREFULLY a series of documents no more than 4 pages at a time the shredder jammed and has not worked since. I would add that it is very loud. All the bold statements on the advertising materials are opposite of my experience.

Excited new shredder owner
My husband and I recently downsized with a move from AZ to CA and have a smaller home workspace. We are working professionals and had never owned a personal shredder before. We didn't want to take personal documents to our offices, and, had recently experienced identity theft. We bought our shredder at Target in the excitement of goal setting for the new year including organizing our home office. Our Fellowes fits right in. I like the sleek basket design and the size and functionality fit our needs perfectly. One problem: it is LOUD. It scares our pets and can't be used off hours or when anyone is asleep.

Having purchased this item yesterday and a lot of shredding to do, it did the job effectively. My only gripe is the fact that no lubricating oil was supplied with it. As stated in the bumph oil should be used after every operation, it surely would be sensible to automatically add it to box at a nominal cost.
