Because we do a lot of shredding daily, this machine really makes a difference in our daily productivity. I really appreciate the silence that it provides while in operation. Best purchase we have made in our department.
My office has been very happy with this shredder. It is well made and very durable. I have not had a single problem with it.
Purchased for University faculty & staff in office with various users day & night. Posted instructions above shredder including oiling cutters. LIST OF ITEMS NOT TO SHRED taped on shredder at feeding area on top...such as.. NO adhesive labels, transparencies, newspaper, file folders. Even highly educated users now have no jams or excuses! Wish new shredder came with at least a small bottle of oil!
This machine is very quiet and durable. It is a great asset to our office. I expect it to handle all our shredding needs.
In researching the various shredders available under the same line, we found the Powershred 225i. This shredder fits well in our office space, and has a nice professional look. It is so quiet when it is in use, not like other brands. We formerly had another shredder from Fellowes that lasted 10 years. We are very happy with this product.
I am so proud of the Powershred 225i. At first, I was skeptical about its ability to handle the kind of shredding load I had at my workplace. Thankfully, I made the right choice when I bought the Powershred 225i. This is why I recommend it to others too. It is not only affordable but allows you to save energy and comes with a 2-year warranty. You can save up to 70% energy consumption. The Powershred 225i has an ultra-quiet operation, which makes it a great alternative for use in a shared workplace. It can hold up to 16-gallons of waste.
