I also purchased the lubricant to hopefully keep it in good working order. I will post back if it breaks like the Royal shredder did after very limited use.

It's much quiter than the piece of junk Royal shredder it's replacing. Seems to be engineered much better too.

After using three different brand shredders, I would by far reccomend this shredder to anyone.

Fellowes always exceeds ourexpectations.

Planned Obsolescence


Shredder worked just fine, but, after three years we started getting paper "jams". I took it apart and there is two plastic pieces that keep the shredded paper from rolling around the two cutter rollers. One of these plastic pieces had four "teeth"...

Worked fine for three years in home use

NO parts available for a three year old machine
