Jackson I work for a government agency, and my office was in need of a shredder with the highest level of security available on the market. I found this FD 8400HS shredder for my office, and I have not regretted the purchase for a single second. This is not a machine designed for heavy use. My office currently has another heavy duty cross-cut shredder for daily use, but this shredder was purchased for those other documents that needed to be completely destroyed because of the confidential information that were on these pages. The shredding volume is not very impressive. I can shred between 6-7 sheets of paper at once, but I am happy to say that this shredder does its job. The machine turns a piece of paper into tiny particles that are impossible to reconstruct. This shredder is ideal for government agencies and research organizations who do not want confidential information falling into the wrong hands. The safety features are a big asset as well. The shredder shuts off when the bin is full or open. These safety features help extend the life of this machine. The 10.25-inch feeding section makes my shredding jobs easier. There is a thermal protection feature that shuts down before the machine overheats. This is not a feature that I expect to ever experience due to the light use of this shredder. Again, the heavy-duty operation is reserved for another shredder that is designed to perform such a task. This is a great buy for those who have documents that must be completely destroyed.

    Customer Testimonials

    "I was impressed with your customer service. We just purchased a large shredder for our department and needed assistance with locating the correct part number. We used the online chat and the person was quick and gave us the information I needed. He first gave a wrong part number, however corrected himself within a short period of time and made me feel like he cared. We will use your business in the future and look forward to a long history."


    "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. "
