Rated 4.7 out of 5�by 801 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5�by A Startling Surprise I?m a collector, an octogenarian, so have for many years saved cards, letters and poetry from my husband, mother, children and friends; love letters from old boyfriends; receipts, and records of work and business, all too personal to throw in the curbside trash. Did I want my children to encounter this mountain of paper clutter? NO! So I bought three shredders one-by-one. By file fifteen, or less in one case, they clattered, stopped, had to be begged to take one sheet at a time. Finally growing discouraged I started looking at other people?s opinions of better shredders; perusing reviews by those who?d tested several shredders and discovered the Fellowes PS-79Ci had a good reputation. I bought one, however I was dubious of its staying power. I am having a grand surprise. To empty the previous shredders I had to lift off the tops which were awkward and heavy. And they all filled much too quickly. My Fellowes container is large enough to hold one stuffed file which works for me, the weight being just right to manage as I slide out the basket and dump the pieces into a garbage bag. Too often the other shredders were hot, quit working, always before I could get the contents of one file folder through them. This shredder gets hot after about three stuffed files. That?s just right, too, for I?m tired of sitting by then, ready to walk around for awhile, smell my roses and admire the moss rose ? or start lunch, drink a cup of coffee, relax. Forty-six large black garbage bags of shredded paper later, I am thankful to all of the people who suggested I buy one. I estimate I have forty-six more bags at least to go, but now have the faith ? my Fellowes is up to the job. And happily, in a final win-win, a nephew is plowing under the shredded material as mulch for his next year?s garden so my lifelong collection of memories will live on. I visualize them now ? as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers. September 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5�by Great Product I use to have a Swingline paper shredder and it broke. My experience with this new one has been really nice. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by 79ci I have only one issue and it has to do with the casters (wheels) they do not go on very easy and they do not stay in place. Would have liked to just be able to snap them in and be done with it. Other than that issue the shredder works great. May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by Fellowes 79Ci Purchased new. In use approximately two months. Works well. No jamming problems so far. Shut down after two minutes of non use is a nice feature. Besides quality, safety features are the reason I purchased a Fellowes shredder. First time I used the recommended plastic bag which makes it easier to empty. The only negative I have, I should have purchased the micro cut instead of the cross cut. The only reason, is my last shredder was a micro cut and I believe it shreds better. April 30, 2015

Answer:�
Our 79Ci shredder does have a plastic bin, but the only assembly required is the attachment of the four (optional) castors to the bottom. This machine is very sturdy. Please take a look at our online reviews!

Answer:�
There is an additional power switch located on the top, back of the machine. If this button is already set to "on" there may be a more significant problem at hand and I would recommend contacting our Customer Service department so that we can help you troubleshoot and get this issue resolved!

My current shredder uses a plastic tab/prong on the bin, which plugs into the motor's frame, and constantly breaks off.

Answer:�
Our 79Ci does have a small tab that inserts into the front frame of the shredder body itself. The tab on our 79Ci is in an orientation that it does not fully stick out beyond the frame and therefore is protected. Broken interlock tabs is not something that we have had an issue. Please let us know if we can help you any further!

79Ci Key Features

  • 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® 79Ci 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 Safety

    Protect yourself and your family while shredding with patented SafeSense® Technology. The Fellowes® 79Ci features an advanced electronic safety sensor that surrounds the paper entry and automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening. 
  • Ultra-Quiet Performance

    We’ve proven it – shredding doesn’t have to be noisy! The 79Ci features ultra-quiet SilentShred™ performance, a technology that virtually eliminates loud shredder noise. Now you can shred any time you like without noisy interruptions. 
  • Energy Efficiency

    The 79Ci 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 Performance

    And there’s more – the Fellowes® 79Ci 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 79Ci features a simple 6-gallon pull-out bin for easy, mess-free waste disposal.
