Surely, there’s something about cross-cut shredders. They shred all your papers into cross sections. This makes it quite impossible for those who may wish to reconstruct the shreds to recover your data.

Because this machine employs the above shredding mechanism, you can rest assured that it will take care of the documents you don’t want to fall into the wrong hands. In more details, it can shred up to 16 paper sheets per pass into 397 (5/32” x 1-1/2”) cross-cut particles that translate to Security Level P-4.

Moreover, it gives this level of security to everything you throw to its waiting blades- like credit cards, CDs/DVDs, paper clips, staples, and junk mail.

Besides, the cross-cut mechanism has proven to be more secure than the strip-cut shredding and faster than the micro-cut mechanism.

Need I say more?


Take a deep breath, sit back and relax! Finally, you can have a paper shredder that gives you some piece of mind when running around your kids or pets.

The Fellowes manufactured this paper shredder with the safety of your kids and pets in mind (and that of yours as well).

How could they do what the other paper shredders have not been doing for a while?

Well, their patented SafeSense technology makes this possible. It integrates an electronic safety sensor that surrounds the paper entry section. This way, it’s able to quickly disable your shredder whenever your hands or those of your kids or pets touch the opening, the gateway to the blood-hungry blades.

It’s, therefore, safe to say that the Fellowes Powershred 79Ci protects not only your identity but also your safety and that of your kids and pets.

Fellowes Powershred 79Ci features


Things get more exciting with the 6-gallon waste bin that comes with this paper shredder.

This particular feature makes this paper shredder suitable for people who often have loads of papers to shred but hate the task of frequently emptying the bin to accommodate more shreds. The 6 gallon is quite sufficient to hold as much waste as possible before it calls for draining.

As if that’s not enough, it comes with a pull-out design which lets you quickly remove it from the shredder for emptying purposes.

With the integrated LED indicator, you’ll get easily notified when the time to empty the bin comes.


As you already know, every paper shredder out runs for a given length of time before it needs to cool down. This is what we refer to as the run-time. And the longer you need to shred your paper, the more run-time you’ll require.

That being said, this machine makes a great option for folks who wish to destroy many papers at a go. It comes with up to 20-minute run-time, qualifying it to rank among the paper shredders with the longest runtimes. After that, it takes around 30 minutes to cool down and prepare for more shredding tasks.

You’ll agree with me that 20 minutes is more than enough for a simple desk side shredder to meet your shredding needs, keeping in mind that it’s jam-free and does not overheat.


If you invest in this machine for your simple home office and you find yourself working late into the night or early in the morning, you’re not going to wake up your kids or disrupt your neighbors.

The machine comes with Fellowes Silent shred performance technology which enables it to operate quietly and smoothly throughout. This is a huge plus for this particular shredder when compared to other shredders out there.
