Powershred® W11C Cross-Cut Shredder
First Time Snafu's
Manual says to unlock push down and slide. Unfortunately, it does not tell you what to push down. Finally stumbled on the solution. Push down on the BLACK BAR on the safety lock to move the lock.
Manual states you should disconnect the power switch. THERE IS NO POWER SWITCH and the manual is wrong.
Other than that, it shreds paper ok.

I bought this shredder to replace a 10-year old Fellowes shredder that finally broke. The Best Buy store where I shop did not have one in stock, so I was not sure how inconvenient it would be to have to remove the head to empty the bin. I bought it for its larger capacity bin, but it has proven to be a messy chore to empty it. Turned out to be twice as noisy as my previous shredder. Nonetheless, it appears to be a reasonably effective machine for the cost.

Constructon seems solid
Received delivery of shredder today - was left on porch. Box was badiy damaged and taped together on bottom and sides. I didn't see any damage to outside of shredder and I used the shredder briefly. So far it operated fine and if no problems occur with more usage, it speaks highly of the quality of this shredder. With the condition of the box, I was very surprised that the shredder operated.
