Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we look at the Fellowes Powershred 225Ci, a roll-around cross cut paper shredder. The shredder comes with a bottle of oil as well as some trash bag liners, and this compartment that holds shredded CDs. The 225Ci’s waste bin is 16 gallons in volume and everything sits nicely inside the closed door. The power controls are all touch pad right here on the top. The nine and one-half-inch wide opening is ample and it shreds at 16 feet per minute and very quiet. The 225Ci can shred up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per trim. It can shred paper, cardstock, credit cards, CDs and DVDs, staples, paperclips, and junk mail. For recycling purposes, CDs and DVDs are shred through a separate slot that falls right into that plastic container. Taking out the trash is very simple with a swing door and easy access bins. The cross cut shred pattern runs at a level three security. One of the 225Ci’s safety features is that it will not operate with the door open and lets you know if it is. It also has an automatic sensor of too much paper; an LED level panel lets you know just how full your stack is. And it won’t operate if there’s too much. Finally, there’s SafeSense technology on the 225Ci. With SafeSense, the motor automatically shuts down when it senses that a hand is too close to the opening. And finally, if there’s some reason why you need to reverse your process, simply push and hold the reverse button and the papers will back right out and you can remove to start over. The entire machine rolls around on four casters, so it’s easy to bring around the office. That’s the Fellowes Powershred 225Ci. For more demos, reviews, and how-tos, check out MyBinding.com.

- Although this shredder has separate feed openings for paper and plastic items, it only has one waste bin. Thus, your shreds will be mixed which may be problematic if your local recycling rules are really strict.
