We are a Law Enforcement Office and handle a lot of classified printed material. We are required by law to shred this information after use. With our old shredder this task took a great deal of time, sometimes days.
It is a pleasure to shred with our FELLOWS C-225 IC Jam Resistant Systems. We can now shred many more sheets of paper at one time, while it continues to run quietly and prevents overload. The quiet motor lets us continue other office business without interfering.
Being able to shred old CD's is also plus for us, something we have not been able to do in the past. We know with the brand name of Fellows thiswould be the shredder for us.
Thanks to Fellows for the great imporvement to our office. This shredder has been a tremendous asset to the efficiency of which our office is run.

Worst Purchase Ever
Purchased the Powershred 225Ci, and it has been a nightmare since two weeks from purchase date. It is a beautifully designed unit that takes less office space than the dinosaur unit it replaced. In my opinion, the dinosaur unit with no bells and whistles was a far better unit. This unit is on its 4th repair. It does jam on occasion, but that is the least of its problems. The sensory system is faulty. Instead of auto-stop when job is completed, it runs continuously until the user turns it off. It has become such a nuisance to operate because for it to work you have to press the right arrow before putting the paper in and while it is shredding. Now, with this repair, we have come to find out that there is a piece broken under its hood. I wonder how that happened. As for the safety feature, of course this is great...the darn thing stops working and lights up like a Christmas tree when you insert paper. In my opinion, this is not a professional, high-capacity shredder, and like a new car...it should be bound by the "Lemon Law".

What we truly love most about this shredder is the qyuietness of the operation. However, it is exactly what our small office was looking for!
