Rated 5 out of 5 by Spikers Seems sturdier than others
I was in Office Depot to buy their "house brand" (Ativa) on sale. The salesman demonstrated the Ativa, but my eye caught the Fellowes 60Cs. It seemed better-made and sturdier than the house brand, and I was familiar with the brand name. When I asked the sales associate which one he would buy he said "Fellowes", even though the store has a higher profit margin on the Ativa. So I spent $20 more for the Fellowes because I felt that I was getting a better product that would last longer. I've used it at home, and it seems to confirm my positive opinion. It jammed a few times, probably because in my naivete I tried to cram too much paper into it's jaws at one time... after all the limit is 10 pages. But it DOES seem pretty rugged for a medium-use home shredder... definitely a couple of steps up from a cheaper unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobp68 Meets all our shredding needs
Just bought the Fellowes 60Cs. Took it home and shredded 3 years of outdated forms. The machine functioned perfectly with no jams. Low maintenance. Oiled mechanism when bin was full. Bottom line....very pleased with machine.
