This post brought to you by Fellowes. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you been looking for the best shredder that is excellent at what it is supposed to do (shred papers, plastic and literally anything that can be shredded), is safe to use, low on noise, and 100% jam proof and more importantly doesn’t burn a big hole in your wallet? With Fellowes launching their latest 73Ci small office or home office shredder you wouldn’t have to look any further. If you’re like me and is always in need of something to shred all those pre-approved credit card promotional letters, hundreds of bills and receipts that you don’t even really take a look ever and other financial papers, then Fellowes 73Ci is a workhorse that could shred through piles of papers (even those with staples or paperclips) without jamming.
This latest shredder from Fellowes is loaded with performance and safety features to help you protect your fingers and more importantly help you protect your sensitive personal and financial information. These blades slice and cut a single sheet of paper into 397, making it nearly impossible for someone to piece the document back together and hence I can be safe and sound knowing that my private documents are being shredded to hundreds of pieces and can not be restored.
Jamming is the number one shredder complaint and Fellowes is the only brand on the market with 100 % Jam Proof technology. Although other brands may offer anti-jam features, none combine the key elements that ensure multiple levels of advanced jam prevention.
Another interesting feature of this shredder is the hardware’s ability to handle paper clips and staples all the way to plastic cards and compact disks (CDs, DVDs, BlueRays). This is awesome as most of the modern day shredders usually don’t come with such capabilities to handle anything more than regular paper. No more troublesome minutes wasted because of a jam.
Key Features of 73Ci Shredder
– 100% Jam Proof System that eliminates paper jams and powers through tough jobs
– SafeSense® Technology which automatically stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening
– A proprietary Energy Savings System which maximizes shredder energy savings 100% of the time – both in use and out of use
– Capacitive touch screen controls
– Heavy-duty Cross-Cut blades destroy a single sheet of paper into 397 particles, making it nearly impossible to piece back together
It has a 6-gallon bin with a window so you can see when you need to empty it; the bin pulls out for easy cleaning.
The Powershred 73Ci has a capacitive touch screen panel for easy control and an Energy Saving System that minimizes energy consumption both while the shredder is in standby mode and while it’s in use, where 80% of a shredder’s energy usage occurs.
73Ci Display Panel
The display panel on the front of the 73Ci includes warning lights for the following situations:
– Somebody is touching the unit near the shredder (SafeSense).
– The bin door is open.
– The 6 gallon bin is full.
– An illuminating scale to gauge whether or not your are putting too much material in at once.
The Fellowes 79Ci is available at office superstores and online retailers beginning January 2013; the suggested retail price is $199.99.
I don’t know about most of you, but security is of paramount importance to me. Call me paranoid, but throwing away my important documents without shredding them is something I never do. Hence going for a smart shredding machine that makes that job easier, hassle free and for a resonable price is an investment in my safety.
Moreover, I really love the idea that this shredder doesn’t jam. That is one of my favorite features. Leave a comment and let us know what feature of the new Fellowes 73Ci excites you most!
