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).

Advanced Safety

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.

Ultra-Quiet Performance

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.

Superior Performance

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

Cut Type

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.

If you shred confidential documents, choose Cross-Cut or smaller. A smaller cut size also means you will empty the bin less frequently.

Productivity

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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

It is worth spending a little extra money to get this shredder.
C. Brantley
It is so quite and even though it advertises that it will take 10-12 sheets of paper at a time, we find it works best with no more than 4-6 sheets of paper.
E. Ruth Berdine
It works great and am very happy with how quiet it is compared to other shredders I've owned.

I have had the Fellowes Intellishred PS-79Ci Shredder for one week. I have used it on several occassions for up to 15 minutes of intermittent shredding and it has worked flawlessly.

I have shredded up to 12 sheets of paper at one time (shredder works a little harder but still smoothly shreds), a couple of credit cards and approximately 15 CD/DVD disks. The operation with paper and credit cards is surprisingly quiet. You could probably shred with someone sleeping in the next room and not wake them. The noise level (dB) is probably doubled when shredding a computer disk, but it still is quieter than any other shredder I've worked with.

One time the shredding process stopped with paper still sticking up above the shredder. I had a pair of 8-10 bank checks, side by side, so that a total of 16-20 total checks were being shredded at one time. I thought that since the checks took only a fraction of the available space for feeding in paper that I could shred two stacks at one time. Well, the shredder stopped. I pressed the reverse button for a couple of seconds, then the forward button until all the checks were gobbled up. No further misfires since then, even doing the same thing again with checks.

Everything functions as Fellowes states. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a small bottle of oil and several clear waste bags. The bags work great. The operating manual is brief but answers some essential questions like what to do with shredding malfunctions, what not to shred, how long to shred and maintenance. While Fellowes tells you when to oil (at every waste bag exchange), Fellowes could have detailed exactly how to use their oil. Hopefully Fellowes technical support will be helpful when a question arises.

I had such a rare customer service experience I could not let it pass without a public compliment. In a nutshell, I wrote to Fellowes complaining about a problem I encountered with two shredders. I did not ask for anything, but I wanted someone to know that there was a problem with the shredder.
To my utter surprise, I was contacted directly by Mr. Fellowes and without excuses, recognized the problem and solved it on the spot.How refreshing it is to deal with a company that where the principal is directly involved and customer service is not farmed out to some third party in a foreign country.

I purchased this shredder. Ordered it Tuesday afternoon, got free super saver shipping and received it Friday afternoon. Unbelievable. Amazon really knows how to ship.

There are a lot of reviews already but I thought I could add a few things.

A reviewer commented about the mess in the shred bin. Yeah, but it is only a minor problem. All my past shredders were worse. I shredded some CDs and DVDs and they make a mess because of the paint on the non-writable side. If you jar the bin slightly and push the pile down with your hand before pulling the bin out the rest of the way, you can minimize the mess. But with CDs and DVDs, some of the stuff is so light it blows around.

Someone commented about the on/off switches. There are two. A master rocker switch in back that I would guess you always leave on. The switch on top you might turn on and off. If you leave the unit on (both switches) all the time, the blue light will run and use a little power. If you really want to be green, I guess you could turn it off.

I want to stress what some other reviewers said about this monster. This is by far the best shredder (and most expensive) I've owned. I owned about three el cheapos before. They all burned out. I use this at home and I'm a nut about shredding anything with any personal information on it. So I might use it more than the average household and I can't imagine ever stressing this beast. But I did give it a shot (below). For day-to-day shredding, this thing wouldn't break a sweat. It is almost overkill but I could see this unit lasting years.

While vacuuming out the unit after shredding the DVDs, I looked at the business end of the shredder. There is a spindle of nasty looking, sharp metal teeth between plastic guides.

Style Name: 99Ci Verified Purchase
We have owned two previous small business class shredders. This is our third. Without any doubt, it is the best shredder I have ever used/owned.

I bought this to replace our reliable Fellowes DM15C Shredder. That unit still works great, but my toddler son now has the dexterity and strength that would theoretically allow him to open up the sliding plastic CD/Credit Card sheild that served as the main barrier between his little hands and the powerful shredding mechanism. Also, after watching one of our cats activate the shredder twice in the past week while using it as an intermediate step to the office window, it seemed like a problem waiting to happen.

SAFE-SENSE (Every Shredder Should Have This)

The main thing I liked about the SB-99Ci is the Safe-Sense technology that shuts off the shredding blades when a hand (or any other body part) gets too close to the blades. In addtion to the no-brainer step of powering the thing off when I am not around, this technology looked like a very good backup protection to ensure that my young son retains all of his fingers until adulthood.

The Safe-Sense technology is extremely effective. I did not realize that it works by detecting fingers etc. when they come into contact with the metal trim that surrounds the shredder mouth (I thought the trim was just decorative...but it is functional). This is an extremely reliable detection method (i.e. vs/ tryng to detect motion or heat) and IMMEDIATELY shuts down the shredder if it is operating, or prevents it from operating at all if it has not started up yet. There is even a nice little LED indicator that lights up when the Safe-Sense shutoff is triggered, so it is very easy to test it out from time to time.
