In-Depth Review of the Fellowes Powershred 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder

Reviewing the Fellowes Powershred 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder
NEW YORK - May 28, 2013 - PRLog -- After pulling out our microscope and taking a closer look, the Fellowes Powershred® 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder - 24 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 is the second lowest level of security available rated at a 2. This strip-cut shredder is a tad better than a level 1 machine but not a whole lot. If you are really concerned about the information on your documents then we highly recommend that you start looking at some of the cross-cut machines. The one benefit of the strip-cut machine is that you can shred faster and more pages per pass. Just make sure that you are choosing the right security level for your needs.

Shredable Material
The Fellowes Powershred® 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder - 24 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).

Continuous Motor
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.

Bin Size
The Fellowes Powershred® 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder - 24 Sheets has a 22 gallon bin. We’re happy with this size because it will give you a bit more time between emptying your bin. Although the size may make it difficult to fit this shredder in a tight space, it’s always worth it in the long run to get a bigger bin size and move your office around a bit.

Throat Size
The 9-1/2 inch throat on this machine gives you a little bit of breathing room when you’re shredding regular size paper and the option to shred a few odd shaped things. If you really have large paper, then you’ll need to look at machine with something larger than a 10” throat.

The Fellowes Powershred® 325i 100% Jam Proof Strip-Cut Shredder - 24 Sheets comes with a 2 Yr Machine / Lifetime Cutter. This means that you have plenty of time to test out the machine and make sure that everything is running smoothly. Just make sure to properly care for your machine and you shouldn’t have any issues.

The MSRP is $2,299.99 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.
