Description of the Fellowes Powershred 225Ci Cross Cut

The smallest in the Fellowes Powershred line of commercial shredders, the 225 is still much more powerful than your average desk-side shredder. Able to shred up to 20 sheets per pass (along with staples, credit cards, and CDs) at a rate of 16 ft/min, the 225Ci will provide you with level 3 security at a quick pace. The jam-proof technology in this machine will make shredding a lot easier and less stressful - perfect for an office environment. The 225 is recommended for 3 to 5 users and has a continuous motor to allow for maximum efficiency.

* Please note, capacity varies with grain, size, quality & paper weight and sufficient power supply.
** Please use actual HP as a specification for determining value. Use of Peak HP is for comparison purposes only where other than Actual HP is used.

Growing On Me , 2/25/14
By Marlin
This shredder is growing on me. At first I thought it felt cheap and made entirely of plastic... and that appears to be true. But I can't deny that we've been hitting it hard for the last year and it still works just as well as the day we bought it. Finally I feel like we've made a decent shredder investment compared to the junk we used to buy.
fellows warranty , 7/9/13
By APPA-diana
I normally don't leave reviews but Fellowes really swept me away with their warranty. I had two problems in two months on my 225 and after the second one they just sent me a brand new machine. I didn't get fussy, I didn't ask to speak to a manager, I didnt yell at anyone. This a company that really appreciates their customers.

The shredder itself does well enough. I might have to upgrade soon as another section has started sharing it with us and it's starting to get dusty. There isn't much more I can say about something that just rips paper up.

I don't want to rain on everyone's parade but this is NOT a high volume high capacity central office shredder. I'd split this between five and ten users and be happy with it, but you have to go higher in the Fellowes line to be a true busines grade shredder. Take it from me, I've purchased about 20 of them, large and small, for my billing company.

Nothing but positive feedback for this product. One tiny problem in the first year of ownership but Whitaker/Fellowes had it fixed up in 24 hours. Good shredder.
Love my fellowes shredder , 11/15/12
Never owned anything but a fellowes and always been happy with them. My five person office finally graduated to this bugger and its lived up to our expectations. You have to oil it though or else it will get very dusty.

Product Questions

Ask a Question

  • Does the Fellowes 225ci shredder come with a 2 year warranty?
    It sure does! All Fellowes paper shredders carry a warranty to be free from defects in material and in workmanship for a specified time period. In the case of the Fellowes 225ci, that warranty would be two years.

  • We are looking at the Fellows 225CI. We are looking to see if there is a coupon from the Whitaker Company or The Fellowes company for an additional discount? Do you know if there would be a rebate for this product as well? Thank you!
    From time to time manufacturers will offer discounts which we pass on to our customers in the form of coupon codes. Fellowes does not currently have any active promotions, nor am I aware that they have run any this year.
