Good, safe home shredder, June 7, 2010By Dave Gray (Ozarks) –

This review is from: Fellowes Powershred P-48C 8 Sheet Cross-Cut Paper Shredder (3224905) (Office Product)

- Shreds into consistently small pieces that are ID-secure
- Can really shred up to 8 sheets of regular paper at once
- Automatic feed on/off (can be left in standby all day)
- Can shred credit cards
- Metal staples are no problem
- Sturdy construction, heavy-duty cutters
- Nice design
- Small size fits into home office
- Manual reverse helps undo jams and clear out cutters
- Several safety shut-offs/lock-outs prevent accidental injury or burnout
- Little fingers cannot reach the cutters from the outside
- It is very safe (automatic shut-off) and easy to remove the cutter assembly
- Bin is easy to dump

- Loud and shrill when operating
- If used non-stop for 3 solid minutes it shuts itself down for 15 minutes flat – also a “pro” in that it will not permit overheating and will force you to take a break from purging your office files. ;-)
- No automatic shut-off for full bin (but there IS a window to see into the bin), so sometimes if you’re not watching, you can create a jam because the bin is over-full.
- If it does jam (particularly with unexpectedly tough folded papers in envelopes), it can be rather difficult extracting documents from the slot.
- Slot is just 9″ wide – many business envelopes are 9.5″ wide (however they can be shredded vertically)

This shredder will really slow down and seem to struggle with some slightly thick envelopes of folded paper (e.g., 3 folded sheets, which is actually about 11 layers in all with the envelope included!), but I was surprised that if they crept on through the slot, they were always completely shredded in the bin – no partial shredding or surface-only “scoring”, like my last shredder. If it goes through this one, it’s thoroughly shredded. These slow-downs don’t seem to have any negative effect on the mechanism. If a few seconds are allowed between each “feeding” (enough time to be sure you REALLY want to shred that next document), it will continue working indefinitely. It seems to shut down for the non-negotiable 15 minutes only if it is run literally non-stop for about three solid minutes. I had TONS of paperwork to shred on my first use of this machine and I was quickly feeding it hand-over-fist when it suddenly took its 15-minute “union break”; it would be unusual to shred like this on a daily basis.

Be sure to buy the lubricant for this machine – it makes a difference!! It’s odor free, extremely easy to apply (just squirt it all across the input slot) and the shredding goes faster with very few jams. Fellowes Powershred Shredder Oil & Lubricant, 12 oz. Bottle with Extension Nozzle (35250)
