Desk Shredder for Home/Small Office – Fellows Powershred 79Ci Cross-cut Shredder

Video Introduction: Desk Shredder for Home/Small Office – Fellows Powershred 79Ci Cross-cut Shredder


Well, if you have been looking for a nice/quality shredder for home use or small-office use, you should look at the Fellows Powershred 79Ci cross-cut shredder.

But why would you require a shredder in the first place?

There are so many documents/CD’s that need to be trashed, but we can’t just throw it out in the waste paper bin, as they might contain some confidential information. If you start cutting all those papers into small unrecognizable pieces, it will take up a lot of your time and energy. To save you from that hassle, desk shredders are available in the market.

You can use the desk shredder (in particular, this model – Fellows Powershred 79Ci) to cut junk mail, canceled cheque leaves, invoices, credit cards, staples, paper and even CD/DVD into small pieces quickly by inserting them into the shredder.

The Fellows Powershred 79Ci comes with a 6-gallon pull-out bin and casters that can hold all the shredded paper/materials, which can later be thrown out later into the trash safely. If you use the shredder, you can be confident that no one can recover any sensitive information from whatever you throw into the trash.

It is generally acknowledged that a cross-cut shredder is more efficient, space-saving and more secure than strip cutting. This model from Fellows is quieter and faster than most other low-cost shredders out there. If you want your shredder to be a quality product and last for a long time, it is better to invest in a product like this (which comes with a 2-year warranty) than to keep throwing and changing shredders frequently.

It is advisable to oil the shredder (as per the instructions in the start guide) once in a month/during every waste bag exchange, for proper functioning. You can buy the shredder oil online from Amazon, as well.

Some good features available in this shredder (79Ci) include jam-free shredding that can shred even crumpled paper put into the machine in any direction, safety feature which stops the cutting function once it recognizes your hand is getting inside the inlet, reverse button for taking out papers (if required). You can cut 14 sheets of paper at a time into 5/32″ x 1-1/2″ cross-cut fine pieces.
