Fellowes Powershred 99Ci Cross Cut Shredder is the finest option available for office shredding. It has a compact design that can be easily fitted besides a desk, without any compromise on the aesthetics of the office. It’s a tall paper shredder that comes with 4 casters, which can be attached at the bottom for easy mobility. The 99Ci cross cut shredder is designed with physical controls located on top of of its right front right corner that include a forward, backward and an enter button. The shredding begins automatically when it’s fed with paper. The back arrow of the 99Ci is used for reversing shredding direction in case a jam occurs and the enter button allows the user to return back to automatic mode.
Though the Powershred 99Ci is a level level 3 (P-4) paper shredder, it provides security suitable for confidential and not secret documents. This one factor is an essential difference between the Fellowes 99Ms and the 99Ci paper shredder. If you need to shred secret documents, you will need to look at a micro shredder like the Fellowes 99Ms, while the 99Ci serves its purpose best where typical shredding is needed.
The Fellowes Powershred 99Ci is able to shred 17 sheets at one time, allowing a convenient experience without undermining the quality and speed. The large feed opening of 9-inch allows Powershred 99Ci to cater to a very large variety of documents commonly used in an office. It shreds them into cross cut particles of 5/32” x 1-1/2” at a speed of 10ft/min that falls into a 9-gallon pull out waste bin.
The impressive jam proof function of the Powershred 99Ci ensures smooth shredding operation without any delay. It’s an extremely important feature because not everyone operating the machine has the knowledge how many papers the shredder can handle at one time. The 99Ci has a red light/green light system indicating whether we are within the paper limit or not, hence avoiding paper jams that can be a real mess at times. The Powershred 99Ci cross cut paper shredder is also equipped with the patented Silent Shred feature that operates the machine without making any noise. This makes Powershred 99Ci an ideal paper shredder for shared workspaces. The shredder focuses on not only providing a professional experience with as much simplicity as possible but also putting a top priority on customer safety. The 99ci paper shredder is housed with a Safe-Sense feature that stops all kinds of activities when hands come in contact with the feed opening.

The 99Ci works effortlessly and has yet to jam up even when I have a several sheets going down. I especially like that the shredded paper is impossible to read and this is precisely the security I needed. I recommend the 99Ci to anyone that wants to shred worry free and without any jam ups or problems. The shredded paper receptacle is easy to slide out for emptying. The unit's casters make it easy to move whenever necessary and the unit is steady.
The Powershred 99Ci is the best paper shredder ever! I had the same model previously for 3 years before it finally gave way to my incessant abuse. I'm surprised it made it past 6 months with as much abuse as we put it through. I literally shred thousands of sheets everyday. Keep her oiled up and she'll be your beast of burden
This is the 3rd or 4th Fellowes product we've owned. Each one served my household very well.
I bought a similar model Fellowes shredder 15-20 years ago and got excellent use out of it over the years. It was time to replace the shredder so I reviewed the shredder market and ended up selecting a Fellowes model (99ci) comparable to the one I purchased many years ago. I received delivery of it today and tried out my new purchase. I noted some new features and improvements were added for safety and ease of use. Keep up the good work, Fellowes!
" Wow what a machine. Chews paper and credit cards like a piranha. Makes quick work of boxes very full of junk mail. "
Not only did I simply need a better shredder that would consistently shred, I needed one that did not require me to lift the heavy "lid-motor" to empty the small paper bin. The only problems I had setting the Powershred 99Ci was pulling off the box (because I could not lift out the 99C1) and then putting on the wheels. The directions only had drawings, so I did not know if I could pound the wheels in. Yes, you can --- A heavy shoe with a rubber sole did not crack wheels yet got them firmly into the holes. Love this machine - it does its job!
I bought a 79ci 4years ago. I shred around 100 sheets a day. It finally quit working. I upgraded to the 99Ci. I am very happy with the shredder. I love how it tells you when you have to much paper inserted. I have not had a jam once. Thanks for the superior product.
We have tried many business quality shredders in our office. None have come up to the quality of the fellowes 99ci. It is efficient and quiet. Does not disrupt a conversation with the noise level if you are talking on the phone.I definitely will continue using Fellowes product line in the future. Matt
I just received the shredder today and the quality of the shredder is so much better then the shredder i'm replacing. I'm a small business and the shredder will be shared between two people. I shred approx 200 peices a week. I have not had it more then a day but the shredder is more quiet and can handle the paper i have passed through more efficent then the previous competitors brand. Yes, Yes, Yes this shredder is awesome for my shredding needs.
