What’s the perfect shredder for an office or commercial environment? The Fellowes Powershred 125ci is my choice.
In my opinion, a good commercial paper shredder for the office should fulfill the following requirements:
- It should provide high security for your shredded documents
- It should be jam proof
- It should have a large shredding capacity per pass
- It should have a large wastebasket bin
- It should have a long runtime before it has to cool down
Believe it or not, all these (and more advantages) are provided by the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder.
Let’s examine its salient features:
- Has a high-security level
- Has a large sheet capacity per pass
- 100% jam proof
- Has a large capacity bin
- Super safe
- Long runtime
- Can shred credit cards, CDs, and DVDs
- It doesn’t stay on when you are not using it. It times out, and you have to press the power button when you want to continue using it
If you are looking for something that can guarantee high security for your shredded documents, the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder is it.
First, it’s a cross-cut shredder. Cross-cut shredder shred material into tiny cross-cut pieces or particles. That’s why they we call them confetti shredders.
Dumpster divers thrive on unshredded or poorly shredded documents. They use the information in bank statements, credit cards, and CDs to steal your identity, defraud you, frame you, and other forms of swindling.
If you choose to buy a strip-cut shredder, you will never be truly certain that your shredded material is safe. You see, the long strips produced by strip-cuts are often possible to piece back into a coherent form.
But with a cross-cut shredder, the confetti-like pieces are practically impossible to piece back together. That’s the main reason cross-cut shredders are so popular with businesses and offices everywhere.
The Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder cuts paper material into small pieces, measuring 5/32 inches by 1-1/2. I am sure even without consciously trying to envision that in your mind, you can tell that it’s a super small size.
The shredder guarantees you security level P-4, which is pretty high up for an office shredder. Next time you guarantee clients that their private information is secure with your business, you can truly mean it – with the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder.
20 sheets per pass
This is a shredder that will just keep giving. Most office shredders do single digit sheets of paper per pass. But with this one, you can do as many as 20!
These 20 sheets are shredded into 397 cross-cut tiny pieces. Imagine feeding 20 whole sheets into a paper shredder! You have a stack of paper lying at home or in your office cabinet that’s been eating at you? No problem. At 20 sheet per pass, you will run through the entire stack in no time at all.
As a productivity booster, high capacity per pass is crucial. This shredder will help reduce the lines that form in the office as people jostle to be next using the shredder.
Identity thieves don’t rely on paper documents alone. They also target your CDs, DVDs, and credit cards.
Sadly most paper shredders can’t handle that kind of hard material. Their blades lose the edge when you try to pass a credit card or CD through them. But not the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder.
It will help clear the backlog of junk CDs, DVDs, credit cards, and junk mail you have accumulated in various drawers and junk boxes in the office or at home.
Plus, you don’t have to remove the staples or paper clips from documents when you are shredding. The shredder’s blades will cut right through them. This will save you a lot of time you would have spent standing around, removing staples. Time you can channel into the real work which earns you real profits.
The runtime of this machine is incredible. Most low-end shredders will run for around three or four minutes before shutting off to cool down. How much can you get done in three minutes?
But with the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder, you get a whopping 45 minutes. This is so awesome I must repeat it: 45 minutes!
If you are shredding documents 20 sheets per pass, you will run through a big chunk in 45 minutes. If it’s good value for your money you are after, you can’t do better than that!
Safe to use
Do you ever fear that your fingers may accidentally get eaten alive when you are operating the shredder? This is a big risk, especially if you are running a home office, and your children start playing with the shredder.
But with the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder, you can relax.
It comes with SafeSense technology which stops the shredding operation whenever your hands touch the paper opening.
Most shredders’ wastebaskets can only accommodate single digit gallon quantities of shredded material. But with this one, you can forget about emptying it for a long while.
You see, the Fellowes Powershred 125Ci Jam Proof 20 Sheet Commercial Paper Shredder have a 14-gallon wastebasket.
And that’s not all. It’s a pull-out bin, which makes it easier to empty it. And that’s not all either. The bin has a LED bin-full indicator. So whenever the wastebasket gets full, the indicator will let you know, and you can take it out to empty it.
It’s important to empty the bin when it is full to avoid paper jams.
100% jam proof
Nothing annoys us more than shredders stopping in the middle of a shredding operation because of a paper jam.
This shredder eliminates paper jams by powering through tough jobs. In other words, it doesn’t quit on you.
Hands down, this is one of the best paper shredders I know. It’s one of those rare products that you don’t have to advertise. The features speak for themselves.
