How does the 100% Jam Proof System work?
The Powershred PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder features a sophisticated sensor that measures the thickness of each paper stack you feed into the shredder. If you put in too much, our proprietary technology automatically stops the paper jam before it occurs.
Similar to a traffic light which lets a driver know when they can proceed, an indicator light lets you know when you are nearing sheet capacity. A green to yellow light signals that you are within capacity. A red light signals that the shredder has been overfed and the machine will automatically stop, so you can remove excess paper to resume shredding. The Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder also detects when paper has been mis-fed or fast-fed into the shredder by turbo-powering through the job or reversing out the paper for easy removal. It’s an efficient system that will even shred your skepticism!
Advanced Safety Feature
Protect you and your family while shredding with patented SafeSense® Technology. The Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder features an advanced electronic safety sensor that surrounds the paper entry and automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.
We’ve proven it – shredding doesn’t have to be noisy! The Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder features ultra-quiet SilentShred™ performance, a technology that virtually eliminates loud shredder noise. Now you can shred any time you like without noisy interruptions.
And there’s more – the Powershred PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder is build to last with solid steel cutters, a powerful motor, and parts that are engineered to outperform our competitors. With its cross-cutter shredder capability, it is also tough enough to cut through credit cards, staples, and CDs, while ensuring confidential documents are shredded into unreadable pieces. Additionally, the PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder features a simple pull-out bin for easy, mess-free waste disposal.

Superb Shredder, April 1, 2008 - By Bulletx
This review is from: Fellowes Intellishred PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder (CRC32279.1) (Electronics)
I have had the Fellow powershred PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder for one week. I have used it on several occassions for up to 15 minutes of intermittent shredding and it has worked flawlessly.
I have shredded up to 12 sheets of paper at one time (shredder works a little harder but still smoothly shreds), a couple of credit cards and approximately 15 CD/DVD disks. The operation with paper and credit cards is surprisingly quiet. You could probably shred with someone sleeping in the next room and not wake them. The noise level (dB) is probably doubled when shredding a computer disk, but it still is quieter than any other shredder I've worked with.
One time the shredding process stopped with paper still sticking up above the shredder. I had a pair of 8-10 bank checks, side by side, so that a total of 16-20 total checks were being shredded at one time. I thought that since the checks took only a fraction of the available space for feeding in paper that I could shred two stacks at one time. Well, the fellow shredders stopped. I pressed the reverse button for a couple of seconds, then the forward button until all the checks were gobbled up. No further misfires since then, even doing the same thing again with checks.
Everything functions as Fellowes states. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a small bottle of oil and several clear waste bags. The bags work great. The operating manual is brief but answers some essential questions like what to do with shredding malfunctions, what not to shred, how long to shred and maintenance. While Fellowes tells you when to oil (at every waste bag exchange), Fellowes could have detailed exactly how to use their oil. Hopefully Fellowes technical support will be helpful when a question arises.
Shredded material size is as stated and is the same for paper as well as computer discs and credit cards. There are units with more finely shredded material, and there are many units that do not shred as small. A motivated thief with patience and plenty of time could reconstruct most any retail shredder's output. That said, a thief would most likely dumpster dive for someone else's unshredded documents before sifting through your well shredded ones. Overall, I feel reasonably comfortable with the level of security of the shredded material with this Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder.
The construction and design appear to be of excellent quality with appropriate ruggedness. There is no bowing or undue flexibility of the frame when the drawer is out as has been commented on with the Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder. The castors are resonably medium duty and can lock down to keep the unit from rolling away. The shredder without the castors sits flat and stable.
Would be nice to know about the quality of the internal parts. I have read that some machines use plastic toothed gears which have higher/earlier failure rates than metal ones. At least this shredder has a two year warranty for the entire unit, which is twice many competing machines.
Overall, the Fellowes PS-79Ci Cross Cutter Shredder is an excellent unit, working exactly as advertised. The Fellowes website has a nice multimedia presentation on the operations of this unit, including the noise level. I haven't had this unit for very long but I am extremely pleased so far with its performance and fit and finish. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light to medium duty shredder for home or home-office, especially if they want a longer warranty, low noise operation, very good build quality and plenty of whistles and bells that actually are useful and work.
