I bought this to replace an
AmazonBasics 12-Sheet High-Security Micro-Cut Shredder
which would no longer auto-shut off after shredding. Obviously, a sensor problem. I bought this as an Amazon "Deal" and glad I did. I have always preferred Fellows. As you can see in the pictures, it's pretty simple to unpack and assemble. Just make sure the alignment "tabs/pins" go completely into the guide holes, so that the shredder unit sits flush on the base. You can judge the size of it in comparison to the rest of what I have behind the desk.
