" This shredder has worked very well for our office. It is the quietest cross-cut shredder we've ever used. The 3-yr warranty is also very nice! "
We have now purchased our second of this type and are very pleased with the performance. We have only had Fellows shredders and would probably not switch to any other. The product service is great, as well as the service from Fellows.
Bought this shredder for our office to replace an older one. We selected this model based on the caster wheels, waste capacity, shred capacity and the continuous shredding capability. Have had no issues with this since we bought it. Very quiet and easy to operate. Also liked the fact it will shred credit cards, staples, paper clips and CD's/DVD's.
We recently purchased the Powershred 225Ci for our school office and we are thrilled with it's quality and performance. We highly recommend this for your office shredding requirements
I was very pleased at the speed of records destruction with this shredder. Very simple to use. Love the box for catching the shreds, it makes emptying it uncomplicated
" Really good shredder. Jam resistant. Can do cards, CD's, lots of paper. Great shredder. "
We had the same model previously but it was the strip shredder. This we purchased cross shreds. Other one worked very well for about 10 years. hoping this one will last as long if not longer.
Well I've only used this shredder for two days so far. It is very quiet and efficient. I'm hoping it will be the workhorse it was advertised to be. Noticed that when you continuously feed papers in one after the other it want's to stop and wait. Maybe have to get used to this one vs my Staples shredder. The jury is out until I've had more continuous usage.
We are a Law Enforcement Office and handle a lot of classified printed material. We are required by law to shred this information after use. With our old shredder this task took a great deal of time, sometimes days.
It is a pleasure to shred with our FELLOWS C-225 IC Jam Resistant Systems. We can now shred many more sheets of paper at one time, while it continues to run quietly and prevents overload. The quiet motor lets us continue other office business without interfering.
Being able to shred old CD's is also plus for us, something we have not been able to do in the past. We know with the brand name of Fellows thiswould be the shredder for us.
Thanks to Fellows for the great imporvement to our office. This shredder has been a tremendous asset to the efficiency of which our office is run.
