Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great home shredder Handles large volume of work effortlessly. Excellent value and not ugly 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient Good quality shredder. Whilst it is not easy to see how full it is because the front panel is smoke coloured, it is easy to lift the shredder up to see how much room is left. Good to have a power off switch as well as "off" on the control switch. Right size for home office. 02 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed What a huge disappointment. The shredder isn't up to shredding single sheets of A4 never mind 8 (as specified). Day 1 it jammed and it took me an hour of pulling at shreds of paper. I didn't overload it. It runs in fits and starts, often getting halfway through a single sheet then stopping - I reverse it out - then try with the clean edge - same issue so I end up with a half shredded sheet of paper which is going nowhere - kind of defeats the purpose. I bought it for a single use as we had a fair amount to shred - it's taken me days and lots of frustration. I bought the shedder online and would have returned it but I had destroyed the packaging. Really disappointed. 31 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by too hard to see when it's full The window of the bin is too dark and one can't easily see if the bin is full or not. If you shred more when it is full, it jams and following the instructions for un-jamming doesn't do it, as lots of small paper bits are stuck in it above the cutters. I finally got them out with a knife but it was very hard. Making the window of clear plastic would solve the problem. Other than that, it has been very good so far (but I've only filled the bin this once so far). 15 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent design shredder This is to replace my old Fellowes shredder and is an excellent buy. Nice design, works very well and features a see through window to check how full it is, very handy. Very pleased with this buy. 22 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Shredder - recommended! Purchased to replace another retailers own branded cross-shredder of 9 months use, and wish I'd got this one instead. Much quieter, more efficient and hasn't jammed once! Lots of safety/power switches, so can pretty much protect against curious fingers. Along with the 2 year JL warranty, all cheers in the shredding department. 16 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful product Strong and durable product. able to shred a lot in the 5 minute slotted time. 06 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the ticket! Very pleased with the shredder. Not as noisy as our old one & seems very effective. 14 April 2015
