Alvin Everyone needs to have a personal shredder on hand these days. Identity theft is a real situation that can happen to anyone. I purchased a personal shredder to make sure that I did everything possible to protect my identity. It took me quite a while to find the personal shredder that was right for me. There were many cheap shredders that I could have gotten for less, but I wanted something that I could have for years to come. I purchased the Dahle 20304, and I am very pleased with its performance. I have outlined the strengths and weaknesses of this machine as I see it. Strengths- • The solid cutting shafts are better than stacked blades. Smaller shredders like this one usually have stacked blades that are not durable and strong. The blades are made of German steel so they can cut through paper clips and staples with ease.• The shredder is quiet. This is a big plus in my book. The machine sits on a rubber shock that reduced the noise and vibration when the shredder is in use. The cabinet is made of wood, and this helps to reduce the noise level as well.• The machine is easy to use. There is a simple toggle switch that makes the machine easy to operate by multiple users. Weakness- • It is only a level 2 security shredder. The machine cuts documents in strips, which can potentially be a security issue.• The shredder is not a continuous operation machine. The machine is not equipped to take on large shredding jobs. It has a thermal protection feature that protects the shredder from malfunctioning.

    Customer Testimonials

    "About two months ago, dumping huge piles of paper was a problem. Many thanks to Johnny who assisted me spot the right paper shredder for my organization."


    "Great customer service, but the web site is little misleading. I completed an order for a Fellows shedder and once my order was complete I received an email that the item was not available. So I tried a different follows shedder and again another email telling me it was not available. I was pretty frustrated and confused. Why have it available to purchase if you do not have the inventory. If you put 'Out of stock' I would not have completed my order. I called your customer service to see what Fellows you had in stock. The man I talked to told me all about Fellows and their change in manufactures, thus the reason for such low inventory. I asked if he could tell me what ones they had available to sell, which he did and I received my fabulous new shedder two day s ago. So I say good job to customer service guy, because I would have probably gone some where else if it wasn't for him. "
