After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Fellowes Powershred® and Fortishred™ 4850C Cross-Cut Shredder - 26 Sheets has proved to be a worthy machine. It's a fairly versatile machine with a not-too-crazy price tag either (but remember you can often get a better deal if you call or email :-) Overall we'd recommend this machine but I suggest that you take a look at the specs yourself.
This shredder sports a level 4 security which means that no one is going to be able to read your documents. A level 3 in generally sufficient for most environments but the level 4 provides that extra level of security. An added bonus with this machine is that because the shreds are smaller, they take up less space so you'll be able to shred more paper before you have to dump out the bin. This will save you time and money (when it comes to bags).
The Fellowes Powershred® and Fortishred™ 4850C Cross-Cut Shredder - 26 Sheets can shred Paper, CDs, DVDs, Paper Clips, Staples, Credit Cards. If you need to be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at a larger machine and/or look for something with a little bit lower security (the higher the security the less likelihood that the machine shreds something other than paper).
This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means that theoretically you could shred all day long and the machine would not have to shut-down to cool off. Remember that results may vary under real-world operating conditions and things such as the temperature of the room will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool and continue to shred. We give this machine 2 pats on the back for being rated continuous duty and we know that you'll appreciate this feature in due time.
The Fellowes Powershred® and Fortishred™ 4850C Cross-Cut Shredder - 26 Sheets sports a hefty 44 gallon bin. We know that you're not messing around when you get up in this size. You'll be able to go quite some time before you have to actually empty that thing out. Fill up your machine, skip the gym and just carry the full bag around the office all day!
A 15-3/4 inch throat means that you can fit just about anything into this bad boy. Gone are the days of folding your oversized paper or crumpling and jamming your machine with regular-sized paper. This guy gets 2 thumbs up for the often underestimated large throat size.
The 2 Yr Machine / 30 Yr Cutter on the Fellowes Powershred® and Fortishred™ 4850C Cross-Cut Shredder - 26 Sheets is one of the best in the industry so rest assured that you are covered. Just make sure that you oil your machine and avoid inserting any foreign object in the cutting heads and you'll be just fine!
The MSRP is $5,999.00 but you can find it for much less online if you look around. Don't let the price deter you until you do a little bit of comparison shopping first.
