Top customer reviews
Bought this shredder to replace a 10 year-old Staples heavy-duty unit in my home office. Selected the Fellows because of reviews found here and elsewhere on the ’Net. This Fellows shredder is As Advertised! Great value. Super quiet. Efficient. Safe; so safe, I no longer fear my necktie getting caught and dragging me to my demise.ツ
Now, about that ONE complaint, with two suggestions. It centers around the plastic bag for the bin.
 Save your money.
Avoid buying the Fellows bags. Based on the sample bags sent with the shredder, the bags appear to be a bit tougher than most plastic bags, but at 21¢ per bag, there is a cost-effective alternative. For instance, we use ProForce Commercial 7-10 gal. Trash Bags (1000 ct.) that cost less that 3¢ per bag. That is a 18¢ savings per bag!
 Keep the plastic bag from collapsing in the bin.
I did try the Fellows sample bags that came with the unit, but the bags inevitably fell into the bin and were covered-up by the shredded paper; making a bit of a mess when it came time to remove the bag. And because Fellow bags are taller than the bin is deep, there is some product waste. However, if you use a medium-size binder clip (such as: ACCO Binder Clips, Medium, 12 Per Box (72050)) and place them to grab the bag along the top edge of the bin, approximately 1½" from each end (please see my photos), the bag stays up, the shredded paper stays in the bag, and bag removal is clean and simple with no shreds on the shag!
!! P L E A S E N O T E !!
There is one trick to the Binder-Clip fix: When positioning the binder clips over the bag along top edge of the bin, be certain each clip is tilted inward to clear the side walls of the shredder when the bin is pushed back in. If you forget to do this, you will be reminded when the bin fails to go all the way in and the door-open status light atop the shredder glows red.
Glad I invested into this.
It works great, there are very few pieces of mail that come too bulky to shread without opening them. I get a lot of junk mail so having a shreader with a larger capacity makea it easier to collect the daily mail and shread the unnecessary stuff on thw spot.
It has the normal on/off button, but also a power switch to cut the power to the machine. This is handy because I have cats and worry about them jumping up and turning the machine on. This lets me turn off both with ease when not in use. I alao like the capacity indicator light as well as the large slide out bin that can use a standard tall kitchen bag to make clean up easier and quicker.
The receptacle that receives the shredded paper is about 2/3rds the size of the total machine and holds plenty of waste.
This is a beast, but like anything else, needs some love and care. GET THE OIL for lubrication treatment and this will last you a very long time.
- can feed whole envelopes into it with rarely an issue.
- shreds for a long time before needing to cool down
- cross shredding
- Indicator for how thick of a feed you are reaching before hitting the limit
- we like to shred everything, and this shreds everything.
- large bin. When it is full, pack it down and keep going.
- can use trashbags as a liner in the removable bin.
- when something is too large and may jam it, it will stop briefly, and auto-reverse, then try again.
- it's large. you'll need a place to store this where it's still convenient to pull out and use when required.
- when "full" stops the machine, there's often lots of dangly bits hanging from the shredding mechanism still and can sometimes cling onto it until after you've pulled the bin all the way out. you will have to open slightly and knock it loose so it falls in the bin to avoid a big mess when pulling the bin out completely.
did not service the shredder by applying vegetable oil to the cutters after each drawer fill up, so the old one broke down after a couple of years. The drawer size of 9 gallons takes my 13 gallon biodegradable bag nicely. You can stretch the bag over the back of the drawer, and the front has two protruding notches for the bag. I had lots of paper to shred, and completed 9 bags filled over a few days. Machine works well although none are extremely quiet.
The specs. say you can shred 17 sheets. I prefer keeping the number of sheets in the green light. I found the following:
17 sheets = red light. 14-16 sheets = Orange 2 light. 11-13 sheets = Orange 1 light. 9-10 sheets = green 5 light.
8 sheets = green 4 light. 4-7 sheets = green 3 light. 3 sheets = green 2 light. 2 sheets = green 1 light.
Must use vegetable oil on the cutter after filling each bag. You can buy shredder oil or I assume use any clear vegetable oil.
Dislikes: Very minor issues. The castor wheels really need to be pounded into place. I used clear shipping tape to smooth the edges inside the drawer around the viewing port. This keeps the bag from tearing when full. The cut paper tends to bunch up directly under the cutter which trips the "full' red light. You may have to open the drawer and pat down the paper three or four times before bag is full. The small bottle of oil supplied is pretty small and you will have to make a stopper for it. Fellowes make a 12 oz. bottle with an extension nozzle that is too large. This really wastes the oil. I found a travel bottle with flip up nozzle that works well (try Target).
