485Ci Key Features
Designed and Assembled in USAFellowes® large office commercial shredders are now designed & assembled in the USA, are TAA Compliant and have the proven quality, reliability, and innovative features you expect from Fellowes.
Advanced Jam Prevention
Paper jams are the #1 frustration among shredder users. That’s why Fellowes® shredders are engineered to take on every job, no matter how tough. The Fellowes® 485Ci delivers three levels of advanced jam prevention with the patented 100% Jam Proof System. Level One prevents overfeeding by measuring paper thickness via a sensor in the paper entry. Level Two powers through tough jobs caused by wrinkles or folds that may occur as paper is shredding or will auto reverse cleanly. Level Three maximizes productivity by providing instant feedback as to whether or not you are within the recommended sheet capacity (watch the light bar as you feed stacks of paper into the machine).
Advanced SafetyProtect yourself and your employees while shredding with patented SafeSense® Technology. The 485Ci features an advanced electronic safety sensor that surrounds the paper entry and automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.
Hassle-Free MaintenanceRegular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders improves performance and extends the life of your shredder. Fellowes® Auto-Oil™ Technology takes the guesswork out of maintaining your investment by automatically oiling the cutters at regular intervals.
The 485Ci also features our Energy Savings System, which is the only system that saves energy while in use – when it matters most! When it comes to shredding, 80% of energy consumption comes from in use activity.* Fellowes’ Energy Savings System maximizes shredder energy savings 100% of the time – both in and out of use.
In Use Savings – performance and power supply efficiency
Out of Use Savings – Standby and Sleep Modes
* Average daily consumption based upon derived daily usage values from 3 competitive commercial shredders
Superior PerformanceAnd there’s more – the Fellowes® 485Ci is built to last with solid steel cutters, a powerful motor, and parts that are engineered to outperform our competitors. With its cross-cut capability, it is also tough enough to cut through credit cards, paper clips, staples, CD/DVDs, and junkmail while ensuring confidential documents are shredded into unreadable pieces. Additionally, the 485Ci features a 35-gallon removable bin for easy waste disposal.

485Ci Choosing The Right Shredder
With Identity Theft concerns at an all-time high, the need to protect personal information is more important than ever. And these days, it’s no longer just what you shred that matters—it’s how small you shred it. Shredders with a smaller cut size will help keep your information secure long after you dispose of the particles. The smaller the cut size, the higher the security level.
Shredder productivity goes beyond mere sheet capacity or speed. When shopping for a shredder, consider the machine’s throughput, or the efficiency with which it can get the job done. Throughput combines the three most critical features that contribute to a shredder’s performance:
Sheet Capacity x Speed (feet per minute) x Duty Cycle = Throughput
For example, a shredder that can handle 15 sheets may seem more productive than one with a 14 sheet capacity. After all, it can shred more sheets at a time! But as the example below illustrates, Shredder B is actually two times more productive than Shredder A, due to a faster shred speed and a longer duty cycle. This means you can get more done at one time, so you can quickly move on with your day.
|Model||Sheet Capacity||X||Speed||X||Duty Cycle*||=||Throughput|
|Shredder A||15||X||4 FPM||X||15 min on||=||900 sheets|
|Shredder B||14||X||11 FPM||X||12 min on||=||1,848 sheets|
*Duty Cycle is the amount of time a shredder can run continuously before needing a cool-down period.
Quality and Durability
We understand that a shredder is not just a purchase. It’s an investment. That’s why Fellowes drives quality assurance to exceed expectations. Prior to launch, all Fellowes® shredders are subjected to extensive field and laboratory tests, including our proprietary continuous abuse test and long-term wear. These tests simulate years of abnormally high use to ensure our products perform reliably, even under the most demanding conditions.
Our promise to you is supported by a commitment to offer the most innovative solutions, exceptional product quality, and first class service and support. Our higher standards ensure you get the most reliable shredder you can buy.
