Powershred® 63Cb Cross-Cut Shredder
It's a winner!
This was bought to replace an older Fellowes that we'd had for 10+ years. We are very happy with the operation of the shredder, except I question the 10 sheet capacity. Anything around 4-5 & it slows down, but doesn't jam. The only real complaint is that we have to keep a close watch on the bin (made easy by the window on front) to start tamping down the shredded paper to keep it from causing a jam, when it starts piling up. But that's not any big deal, & all shredders are like that. We tend to wait until the bin is fairly full to empty it. At least this one will stop if it gets a jam, before it has a chance to burn the motor out! If this one lasts as long as the old one did, we'll be very happy! It would be nice if the warranty was longer --- like 5 years product & cutter or 5 & 10 (instead of 1 & 5).

does not work as well as my old fellows shredder
if a piece to be shredded is thicker than 3 sheets it has a tendency to jam. it must be backed up & paper removed or started again. it sounds like it is working hard when more than 1 piece of paper is inserted. if you put two empty envelopes in together it works very hard. the only thing wrong with my old shredded was i could not shut it off.
