Advanced Jam Prevention
Paper jams are the number one 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. 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).
Protect yourself and your family while shredding with patented SafeSense technology. The 79Ci features an advanced electronic safety sensor that surrounds the paper entry and automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.
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.
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 competitors. With its cross-cut capability, it is also tough enough to cut through credit cards, paper clips, staples, CD/DVDs, and junk mail 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.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Shredder
With Identity Theft concerns at an all-time high, the need to protect personal information is more important than ever. And these days, it's no longer just what you shred that matters--it's how small you shred it. Shredders with a smaller cut size will help keep your information secure long after you dispose of the particles. The smaller the cut size, the higher the security level.
Security Level 2
Security Level 3
Security Level 4
Security Level 6
|39 -- 7/32" strips per 8.5" x 11" page||399 particles per 8.5" x 11" page||3,000 particles per 8.5" x 11" page||13,000 particles per 8.5" x 11" page|
|Ideal for: Non-confidential documents||Ideal for: Credit/College Applications, Insurance papers, Junk mail||Ideal for: Medical Records, Employee/HR Files, Bank/Financial Statements||Ideal for: Top Secret or Classified Government Documents|
If you shred confidential documents, choose Cross-Cut or smaller. A smaller cut size also means you will empty the bin less frequently.
Shredder productivity goes beyond mere sheet capacity or speed. When shopping for a shredder, consider the machine's throughput, or the efficiency with which it can get the job done. Throughput combines the three most critical features that contribute to a shredder's performance:
Sheet Capacity x Speed (feet per minute) x Duty Cycle = Throughput
For example, a shredder with a speed of 8.2 feet per minute (FPM), may seem more productive than one that shreds at only 7 FPM. After all, it's a faster machine! But as the example below illustrates, Shredder B is actually three times more productive than Shredder A, due to a longer duty cycle. This means you can get more done at one time, so you can quickly move on with your day.
