Product Reviews
Fellowes Powershred 79Ci Cross-Cut Shredder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 749.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and durable Just received and worked on the first try. Easy to put together. I recommend putting the casters on for easy mobility. The safety features are excellent. Came with the oil and a few sample bags. Tested well on the first try. It wasn't any louder than the last shredder we had for years. Seems good but just received it. It is sleek and looks great in the workplace. It does take 16 sheets of 20# bond paper. Like the pull out waste container, less mess than a device where you have to pull up on the shred mechanism to remove the waste. So far, good to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bobbyr I was amazed at how this machine performs. It is fast, is safe to use and very quiet. The shredded material would not allow anyone to decipher any information on any documents shredded. I am totally satisfied with this product and would recommend it to anyone. This machine is well built with a lot of features and durability to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slam Dunk This shredder is a BEAST! I bought it to replace one that sounded like a wood chipper, had a wire-frame receptacle that leaked scraps of paper like a french-fry basket, and took more breaks than a municipal employee. It also required that I lift off the shredding mechanism to empty the scraps that hadn't already leaked out. Yes. I would have liked a receptacle larger than six gallons. But I didn't want to spend the extra money for the extra capacity. This shredder does everything I want it to do — quietly, reliably, and safely. And the part about handling staples and paper clips is absolutely true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shredder This is one of the few items I have bought in the last 10 years that does exactly what it's supposed to do. We had to shred all the legal papers of a relative that passed away let me tell you it did that so easy and so quickly it was unbelievable. If you're looking for a great Shredder that is easy to use with no hassles check this one out this is the one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my previous top line model After wife tried to run complete checkbook through my previous Fellowes top of line home shredder, bought about 1995 and used almost daily since (now 1/2017), and broke gear teeth on the head unit, I decided to pamper myself with another Fellowes cross-cut feature laden shredder. The 79Ci seemed the best to me, without the nebulous extra features of the models just above it. I ordered it through Amazon, installed it, and could not be happier with my choice. It overcomes the only 2 things I disliked about my previous shredder, jamming on too many sheets and the auto shred light stopping due to paper dust over it. The only (minor) issues I have with this new model is the bin not being as large as I would like for a shredder that can do so many sheets so fast, and its bin not being shaped to make it easy to install a bin bag to hold the shredded product, both of which were better on my previous mid-90's model. Both items are easily solved with the new models, and I recommend a larger bin model to all, as having to stuff the shredded material down into a more compact size so one can continue shredding, is a nuisance. Overall, this is the best shredder I have used, including the much bigger ones at my last office, and I recommend it to anyone who can afford it, with the proviso that this is a very reasonably priced shredder - about the same price I paid in mid-90's for the then top of line home office model - and just as durable as far as I can tell after just a month's use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shredder This shredder is so efficient and quiet. The whole building no longer has to hear when I shred documents. My only issue is that for as big as it is, it seems to want to be emptied earlier than even my small one does. That being said, it does tell you it is full, instead of jamming like my old one does. Would recommend it.
