Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AutoMax 500C Great machine. Very quite and efficient. The 20 gallon container is a plus. Not to mention that if shreds everything with a touch of a button. We had used several other shredders at the office and this one is bar none the best at the price point and for its ease of use. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Warranty This is a great product, but if you do have any problems while under warranty the Fellows company will replace the product. It has been a pleasure to own this product and to work with the Fellows comapny. February 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jams Constantly We are a small office that requires a lot of shredding. I did not consider a shredding service because I thought this shredder would be good enough to spend an hour or 2 a week with. This is not the case - it jams constantly and I am always fixing it. I did research, I do the maintenance (it is only 7 months old!) and still it fails. It's fussy, doesn't like torn A3 or A5 paper (haven't tried a credit card or CD but can't imagine this being hitch-free if it can't even handle small pieces of paper). The piles of paper need to be neat, documents will need to be separated (it can handle 2-4 pages stapled together). I actually rever to using our old manual feeder on days that this shredder simple jams on every 5th page for no reason whatsoever. Very disappointing and will be looking to upgrade to a more heavy duty machine. October 13, 2014
