“Fellowes Shredmate crosscut shredder”

Written on: 15/10/2011

Had ours for over 7 years. We use it for shredding unwanted mail and bills, and I also shred old business confidential reports I have written. Now need to replace it as the microswitch that starts it schredding automatically is becoming erratic.

PROS
Shreds securely and very well into pieces about 22mm x 4mm. A compact, nicely styled unit that doesn't look out of place in your living room. Very reliable, provided you don't shred too much at a time and for too long, and remember to empty the waste bin when full (or push down waste to comapct it). Low maintenance - once a year I clean any paper swarf from the cutters (from underneath the lid) with a pointed instrument and then apply a little light machine oil.

CONS
Need to shred max. 2 pieces of letter/A4 paper at a time (as you need to fold in half to fit slot). Does not detect if bin is full - if you continue to shred, some waste will then be drawn up into the mechanism, causing it to jam - paper could then be drawn into the gear train if yuo don't clean it away from underside of the lid. Maybe this was why a few other reviewers have had problems?
