Fellowes Powershred P57Cs Paper Shredder Review

Fellowes is a great place to start when looking for a small paper shredder. The P-57Cs, one of their power shred models, is well-equipped to handle home office and small business needs. This cross-cutting machine may be petite but is packed with features, including an automatic electronic start/stop, motor reverse function, and Patented Safe Sense technology. Backed by a one-year complete and three-year cutter warranty, the P-57Cs is well-suited for moderate use. Here are some pros and cons about this machine.

Strengths:

• At a mere 16″ tall and 15″ wide, this machine neatly fits under a desk or table. It stays out of the way but is easily accessible whenever you need it. The head tilts back, allowing the five gallon waste bucket to be quickly and effortlessly removed.

• The cross cutting mechanism shreds credit cards, envelopes and other stapled documents into 5/32 by 2″ particles, making them virtually impossible to reassemble. This results in higher security for you and your identity. It also fills the the bin much slower than a traditional strip-cut machine, thereby reducing the amount of trips needed to take out the trash.

• This specific machine is backed by a one year complete warranty. Fellowes will often simply replace your shredder for a new one instead of swapping out a part or two. Additionally, the blades are guaranteed for a total of three years.

• Fellowes also offers Patented Safe Sense technology. The machine contains a device programmed to sense when human hands are too close to the opening. When a child attempts to stick in their fingers or a dog wags its tail too close, the shredder will immediately turn off to prevent any accidental injuries.

Weaknesses:

• Many smaller shredders can only run for so long before needing a rest period and this one is no exception. However, the five to seven minute run time is generally long enough for the average home user. If your machine shuts off, allow it to rest and come back to it in a little while.

• This particular model doesn’t come equipped with jam proof technology. Even so, the sheet capacity gauge works to prevent paper jams from occurring. In addition, the motor reverse function easily removes accidental overstuffed paper.

• Lastly, the throat width is a short nine inches. For most home office or small business uses, this doesn’t seem to present a problem. If your shredding needs include larger documents, you may consider upgrading to a higher model.

Overall, this small shredder is considered to be a solid purchase. Fellowes is known for delivering quality products and the P-57Cs fits in that category. The compact size as well as the pivoting head make it tidy to tuck away in a corner and easy to empty the occasionally full trash. Patented Safe Sense technology insure your children, pets, and you stay injury free. And the cross cutting action leaves your papers in tiny confetti, helping to protect your identity. For use in a home office or even in a small business, Fellowes’ P-57Cs is a durable machine, well-suited to meet your needs.
