The shredder has a very intuitive sensor so our big shred jobs went very quickly. I also never feel like my fingers could come in contact with the blades. The design is clever because it takes space constraints into account and fits into our small available nook, though it is not a tiny machine. It also is not very loud considering the power it has. I also really like not having to oil the machine often. Once a year or so, I fill it with the oil and then don't have to think about it. One thing i think that should be updated is the box that the shredding is caught in, its cardboard so it if gets dirty you kind of have to live with it. I do like that cardboard is bio-degradable and i think they need to keep that 'green' aspect to the catch bin but with a slightly better material. Anyway we liked it enough to buy a second one when our demand increased
Great purchase for our small office. Good safety features. The shreader tells you if you are trying to feed it too many sheets or if you can feed it more. Also it warns you if the bag is filled reducing clean up. It is quiet enough to continue with a conference call one office away.
Replaced a very old, NOISY shredder with a Fellowes. Only issue seems to be slower shredding, but that could be due to fact Fellowes is a criss-cross and old machine did strips. Old machine sounded like a jet taking off. This is a great shredder!
We already had this model when given the opportunity to replace it with anything we wanted. We decided that because our old model was still running strong and easy enough to maintain, that we'd like another, newer model and are pleased to have it! Our organization does a lot of shredding of docs and CDs/DVDs so we needed a powerful strong unit.
Portable, easy to manage, energy saving and safe to use. The Powershred 485ci is my favorite shredder and a machine I have recommended to all my friends. It also comes with the auto oiling mechanism. This makes using the machine very comfortable and efficient. The energy saving technology in the Powershred 485ci turns it off if the machine is idle for some time. It can also shred CDs/DVDs, credit cards, staples, and paper clips easily. The machine comes with a 2-year warrant on the product and a lifetime warranty on the cutters. So far, I never had any technical glitches with it and I still love it.
