- Great Product
I'm satisfied with the purchase. It fulfills the duty of shredding statements and junk mail. I bet it could take more heavy duty work but I don't. I considered shopping for a cheaper product at Walmart and Sams but I decided to invest a little bit to get a better product. I'm glad it paid off. I do shop around so I think I got the right product. ...more info
- Great powerful machine
This product was purchased for my office. It was such a workhorse I purchased one for my home. I have used it for over 2 years and never had a problem. I am very impressed with its work. ...more info
- Fellows PS-77Cs shredder. Paid $142.00 for it online and in weekend SF Chronicle Fellows shredders were offered starting at 50
I ordered Fellows shredder online for $142.00. In the SF Chronicle weekend Office Depot sales brochure this was offered for around $70.00. I just wish I had waited, Office De;pot offered different Fellows shredders starting at$50 dollars. I could have saved a bundle. This is my third Fellows shredder.

- Shreds Great
I am very pleased with the performance of this shredder. Ability to shred multiple sheets, with no jams. Much quieter than my last shredder. Paper receptacle has a large volume of capacity, requiring less trips to the dumpster. The only suggestion I would make to Fellows would be to take a look at the design of the feeding slot - in my opinion; it would be more comfortable and quicker to feed paper in directly from the top, rather than on an angle. The angle requires you to shake the paper to make it rigid so it will feed in on a horizontal angle....more info
- Finally, a good SOHO shredder
So far we are very pleased with this unit. Also bought the Fellowes Shredder Oil and following their instriuctions to a "T" (oil it up after every bin is emptied, pretty easy). It powered through a pile of shredding and handles our daily loads very well. Had an Aurora unit for a while but it was just not easy to use. this one is easy to use, the bin holds a lot of paper, and it is a good buy in my opinion....more info
- If you need a powerful home shredder, you've found it
Love it, have lots to shred and have burned out one shredder and blown up, (don't ask) another. I have shredded unopened envelopes in the center of this shredder, credit cards all no problem. Only situation where something got stuck was an envelope unopened with a credit card inside. It took a little tugging in reverse but got it out no problem. Also purchased the lubricant. Very pleased and the pull out drawer is the best idea yet!!...more info
- Good choice for home office
I bought this to replace an older Fellows Shredder that died from a hopelessly clogged cutting mechanism, probably due to overfeeding. I think it was still under warranty, but I figured it wasn't worth the hassle or the cost of shipping to get it fixed, especially since Amazon had such a good price on this one.
The PS-77Cs easily handles 10 to 12 sheets at a time, including those annoying credit card offers and solicitations for charities I've never heard of that seem to show up daily, chopping them to bits, envelope and all. It's very adequate for my home office, but it would probably be insufficient for a larger office.
It has a 5-year warranty, which is reassuring, although I have to wonder about the cost of shipping such a heavy item someplace for repair. Shredders at this level are, IMHO, like toasters and DVD players -- generally not worth the cost of repairs, especially if you can write it off as a business expense.
I especially like the safety feature of the PS-77Cs that stops the cutting mechanism instantly if you touch the area around the slot where you feed the paper into the shredder. My grandkids are fascinated with the thing, and I feared that there could be an accident with the old machine, which lacked this feature. That's another reason I decided to buy a new one rather than try to fix the old shredder. ...more info
- Fellowes 32177
Great product. I made sure I did my homework and read up as much as I could on all the available shredders. I needed one that was going to be able to handle a year's worth of paperwork and old bills in a day. This handled it just fine and was quiet while doing it too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a medium to heavy shred load....more info
- Shred anything
After much hunting down for a shredder, I chose the Fellowes 32177 Powershred PS-77C. This is just what i needed for home/office use. It shreds a nice stack of paper (about 15 sheets or so) and also does a good job with the CD's and Credit Cards. The shredder is quiet as can be for a shredder. Quality is good. The plastic bin is just perfect, and it's super easy to take out the bin to toss the shredded paper. The safety touch thing is very cool too. All in all perfect for my needs. I Recommend it....more info
- Works great!
I've only had this a little while, but it chews up everything I throw at it. The greatest thing is I don't even have to open those pesky credit card offers; I can just feed in the whole envelope! It's a lot quieter than my old shredder, too....more info
- a great shredder for a greater price
I had many shredders that were less expensive and I know why, they burn out quickly. This shredder is quiet and will handle upto 12 sheets plus shred credit cards and cds. Check with Amazon for the fairest prices.
A HAPPY CAMPER...more info
Great shredder! Seller was prompt in processing order. Packaging was not good - I thought initially the product could be damaged as the box was misconfigured by shipper....more info
- the best shredder
After wearing out several lighter shredders, we got tired of replacing them. So we bought this heavier product. It is fantastic! Handles multiple pages at once. Does not get packed down with paper in the shredder teeth like others do.
We were at first fearful about shredding credit cards and CDs/DVDs since this ruins other shredders that were also rated to handle them. But this shredder lives up to its reputation! It seems to handle everything we have tried.
Love it! ...more info
- Good so far
I had previously purchased two other shredders from a major retail chain (their logo is a bulls-eye). The first one was on sale, looked good, and was inexpensive (cheap). It wore out after six months. The second one from the same store was their most expensive. After one year it, too, broke down and was useless.
I finally decided to purchase a "real" one and this is the one I determined was excellent for the price - although it was more expensive than I had planned to spend.
The expense so far has been worth the investment. It simply has a more solid look and sound than the others I had tried. It has performed as advertised and I am quite happy with it. It does make a bit of noise but not as much as the other two I wasted my money on. It shreds multiple sheets with ease and never sounds as though it is overloaded. It has never jammed.
Thus far, I would recommend it without reservation. However, it should be noted that I have only had it for a few months so I may change my mind sometime in the future.
- Very Satisfied
This shredder works very well. I just oil it every time the basket is full and it keeps going and going. ...more info
- Great shredder for the home office!
If you have a home office and a fair amount of documents to destroy, this is a great shredder. It may not be as fast as some other high speed shredder, but it does the job....more info
- A Power Shredder it IS!
This is one great power shredder. Great safety features. It is well worth the extra money I paid for it. It shreds credit cards, old DVDs, and CDs and several sheets of paper without the motor slowing down one bit. Buy one and you will agree it is the best shredder you have or will ever own. It is almost as good as the shredder at work, which we paid $1500.00 for....more info
- Heavy duty and durable
We purchased this shredder a year ago and have been using it daily since then. So far, we've only had to oil it once and it is working as well as the day we bought it.
It quickly shreds handfuls of paper and cuts them into very small pieces. The sensor-stop feature works well, preventing cats and kids from getting their little paws into the slot while it's shredding.
This is a HEAVY shredder. You won't want to carry it around the house, so make sure you place it in a convenient spot from the get-go. We use a paper grocery bag inside the bin to catch the shreds and then toss it into the recycling like that. Couldn't be easier.
Definitely recommended!...more info
- Don't leave this shredder on Auto-On!
The Auto-On feature of this shredder should NOT be left on, or it will burn out. This isn't clear in the directions. A customer rep at Fellowes actually told me that leaving the shredder set to "Auto-on" is also a fire hazard. That isn't mentioned in the directions, either. I'll steer clear of Fellowes next time......more info
- Very impressive
I have had a Staples-special non-crosscut shredder for several years, and sensitive documents were building up since it was such a pain in the neck to use. This one arrived within a couple days and I've almost completed the backlog already. Let me describe some features of the unit:
1) It is surprisingly heavy. The power unit on top is maybe 20 pounds. To me that implies a lot of durable metal parts rather than plastic.
2) There is actually a separate stand and basket so that you can empty the basket without removing the power head. The "stand" actually looks like a basket with the front missing, and the actual basket pushes inside from the front. Very nice given the weight.
3) The basket has a transparent viewing port (you can see it on the picture) that lets you tell when it is full.
4) The power unit can sense when the basket is not there and will not turn on. (You have to put the basket in carefully to be sure to engage the switch, btw)
5) It is surprisingly quiet, especially compared to my old one. And yes, it does eat staples. With no noticable extra noise.
6) There is a little paper gauge so you can tell when you have about the right amount of paper in hand. That's the black thing in the picture right in front of the paper inlet.
The best thing about it to me is that the crosscut shreds coming out pack much better than the full-length strips that my old one made. I got quite a bit of paper into one basketfull. I do recommend emptying the basket when it gets up to the viewport. "Just a few more" as I did ends up spilling some when you take the basket out.
I don't see any reason to buy the special bags. Yes they are the perfect size for the basket, and yes, a bag is a good thing. However, I think you could use a regular cheap garbage bag just as easily. I plan to take my shreds to the paper recycling in town and empty the bag and reuse it. (My paper recycling is mixed type that you dump in a big dumpster; if you have newspapers only and have to stack them, you probably won't be allowed to do this.
- Ok shredder but has issues
This shredder looks good and if you clean it often, works well. But it has a couple of issues that makes me worried about using it and give it the two stars. #1 - It shreds paper into small pieces but when you go and look and the pieces, sometimes you find one about 3/4 inch thick, I think it has to do with the edges but my previous no-brand shredders never did that so I don't understand why a more expensive model would. #2 - I don't think it can shred at specified capacity and I wouldn't shred more than a 2-3 sheets max. #3 - It is out to either burn down my house or shred my fingers. It doesn't happen often enough for me to return it and be confident they'll see it and honor the warranty but once I came into the house hearing it running and it was obviously w/o any paper and all clean and running very hot. And while I keep it in off mode when not in use since then, I forgot to do that at least once and got shocked when it just came on when I was in the room. I also worry that I may accidentally forget to turn it off again and either have it running hot again or worse yet have it come on when cleaning/emptying it. The second one at office has the same #1 and #2 issues but no problems w/ the automatic feature. p.s. Amazon's tag suggests "a great safe shredder". Mine isn't, also just noticed the same problem reported by another user.....more info
- Works great - flimsy base
Shreds great. Does everything as advertised. My only issue so far is the flimsy base especially when you remove the waste basket to empty it. Getting the waste basket back in place is hit or miss and if it's miss, i.e. not tight, it won't function. ...more info
- Fellowes 32177 Powershred shredder
The shredder is probably my fourth or fifth home shredder. I have been very happy with it's quiet and efficient operation. I am most impressed with the shredding of CDs and old credit cards. The cross cutting of these items has been great. This shredder was a great value....more info
- How did I live without this shredder for so long?
I finally got tired of fighting with my old shredder every time. This shredder is terriffic! It eats staples, credit cards, CDs, cardboard, sticky labels, and a dozen sheets of paper at a time. My home is my office, so this shredder does double duty every day and never complains. It is very safe and easy to use. It is relatively quiet for its toughness and its waste bin is a reasonable size - you won't have to empty it every day! I empty mine once a week wether it needs it or not. Unless you were an accountant for Enron, you will not be dissapointed in this shredder!! I give two thumbs up - if you are really looking for a solid shredder, buy this one....more info
- Works very well
I've been going through lots of old bills and papers from several years ago and most of them need to be shredded before being tossed. This shredder has done a great job. It is possible to feed more paper than it will handle at a time through the slot, but as long as you keep the number of pages at a reasonable level, it churns through them very well. The smaller slot works great for plastic credit cards... I haven't tried a CD yet. I like the safety features... it's got a heat indicator LED if you use it too long at a time (more than about 20min running) and it shuts down until it cools. I've been pleased with it....more info
