Call it dumb luck but I was getting ready to buy a new shredder with some of my tax return and than was offered the opportunity to review the new Fellowes 79Ci. I need a new shredder becaue mine is eating the paper versus shredding it. It is not doing a good job of destroying all the papers with sensitive information, old CDs and credit cards. I think the Fellowes 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder should be the complete solution. Although I was looking for something cheap, the Fellowes’ system can’t be included in this category (You can find this amazing shredding tool at Staples, for a reasonable price of $239.99.), as it’s a professional model that comes with several high-end capabilities that you can’t find in regular shredders. Let’s see what it’s about.
Fellowes 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder was designed for home use, home offices and businesses, and has a professional and stylish design, coming in black with dark silver accents, at a size of 21.50 x 12.75 x 15.38 inch, with a 2-year warranty for the entire machine and lifetime warranty for the cutter. It features automatic start/ stop function and is able to cross-cut 14 sheets at a time, while the pull-out bin has a capacity of 6 gallons.
You can use the Fellowes 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder to destroy papers, staples, paper clips, credit cards, CDs and DVDs, but the key capabilities that make it stand out include the 100% Jam Proof System, the SilentShred technology, the Cross-Cut technology, and the patented SafeSense technology.
The 100% Jam Proof System is a great feature that addresses the number one compliant when it comes to shredders and is the world’s only system that eliminates jamming, supporting multi-level jam prevention. The machine integrates an intelligent sensor in charge with measuring the paper stack thickness in order to stop the paper jam before it happens and it does this automatically. On the other hand, the technology can detect when the sheets are misplaced and reverses them out so you can easily remove them.
You can work with the shredder fast and increase productivity thanks to the instant feedback provided by the indicator light that informs you on paper capacity.
The Cross-Cut technology I mentioned previously ensures the paper sheets become impossible to piece back together as each is shredded into 399 particles. The job is done quietly, thanks to the SilentShred technology powered by a quiet motor, and in case you touch the paper opening accidentally, the SafeSense technology disables the shredder automatically.
