Powershred® DS-3 Cross-Cut Shredder
This is a replacement of the same model I had purchased 13 months ago. It has great features and does the job well. The only thing I would be careful about is the electric cord -- in the previous Fellowes shredder (this same model with a different basket) I had, the cord connected to the shredder itself got frayed (wires exposed) during normal use as the cord was bent while it sat close to the wall about 3 inches). Thankfully, I had purchased a Protection Plan and was able to get my money back to purchase another one. I strongly suggest you buy a Protection Plan for this item.

I wore out an old Fellows Shredder and needed a replacement. I looked at many shredders on the internet and reviewed their capability and price. When I saw the DS-3 I thought that is a novel design that just might work for me.
Sure enough, I have been using this machine for about a month and it is doing everything that it was designed to do. It is a little noisy but I don't mind since it never jams and cuts everything very well..Emptying is a breeze. I like the lift off top, which I can set on the floor while I dump the main bucket. This is one really great shredder for me. I highly recommend it for home and home office.

Never Share Numbers
Our mamas and our teachers taught us to share and play well with others. This advice does not apply to the numbers we put on our tax returns. Imagine the havoc a crook could create with your Social Security number, address your direct deposit information. The Fellowes DS-3 Cross Cut Shredder is the perfect tool to keep your tax records secure. Old tax forms needs to be safely destroyed and this shredder does the trick in minutes. A powerful motor that refuses to jam keeps working until the job is done. The large bucket will hold at least ten years worth of numbers that should never be shared. You can't go wrong with this essential home office tool.
