P12c worked well for 1 year now doesn't shed, only works in reverse when you go to put paper in safe sense light comes on . any suggestions that wont cost same as new shredder? February 28, 2015
Right Out of the Box_Damaged I just purchased this Fellowes Powershred P-12C Heavy Use. I took it out of the box, plugged it in, turn the on button and nothing, I looked at this thing over and over, I found the pull out tray to have the missing tab that pushes the switch in to activated. A Complete Disappointment, and Didn't even get to shred 1 piece of paper. After reading these reviews, I am definitely bringing it back. And getting my money back. February 11, 2015
review of power shredder It is easy to move from one spot to another. It is easy to follow the instruction manual and has many safety features to prevent injury. I like that it will shred credit cards and thick items that prior models would not have taken. January 27, 2015
