Experience when using Fellowes 450Ms 7-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder with SafeSense

When you start using this paper shredder, the first thing you will notice is that it does not make any noise even while shredding 7 sheets together. Its motor is strong but quiet and the only sound one can hear is the sound of shredder teeth reducing the paper into bits. The bits are so tiny that you can’t even make out an alphabet in the shredded paper which provides ultimate protection.

Even as you shred 7 papers together which is the maximum number of sheets, the machine can shed in a single pass, there is no sound and you can only feel the machine working a bit harder.

You will experience that despite continuous shredding 4-6 papers, the machine does not slow down until the machine stops to cool down. Yes, you might feel that the run time of 7 minutes should be a little more but it is a lot better performance wise than many other shredders in the same range.

Benefit when using

This machine ensures ultimate safety as it can shred paper into 10 times tinier bits than the standard cross cutting provided by other shredders.  In case there is a paper jam, the AutoReverse technology stops and reverses the paper and so shredding can be done with ease without any fear of paper jam.

There is no fear of anybody getting injured with this shedder because the SafeSense technology stops the blades as soon as they come in contact with hands.  You can expect lower power consumption as it uses 120 volts only.

Tips for using and maintenance

  • Since the pull out basket can hold 80% more per gallon, you just need to push the shreds when it is 3/4th full and you will not need to empty the bin for at least 1 week.
  • To avoid mess while emptying the bin shake it a bit so that the shredded particles settle down.
  • Always allow the shredder to cool down properly in between cycles.
