Fellowes� Powershred� 79Ci 100% Jam Proof 14-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder 4.8 5 689 689
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
The Perfect Office Shredder We purchased Powershred� 79Ci to use in our small but growing tech company. We are extremely happy with the performance of this shredder. It's very quiet and does a great job of quickly dispensing our documents. We mostly use if for shredding paper documents and have never had a paper jam. I would definitely recommend this product to others. June 13, 2014
Great Shredder This is a great shredder. I love how quiet it is and really does the job and so far no jamming! I would recommend putting a trash bag in the bin because it can get a bit messy. Other than that it's great June 3, 2014
Great Choice!! Couldn't be happier w/ this shredder!! Well worth the $$$ and good performance. Design & style is pleasant to the eye and much more quieter than our last shredder. Over all we're very pleased. June 3, 2014

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.
