Fellowes Shredder Powershred 63Cb Review and Giveaway #SmartGiftsforGuys

Need a Gift For The Man In Your Life?

What about a POWERSHRED Fellowes Shredder?  Even the name sounds tough! It’s not a delicate shredder, or pretty shredder… it’s a POWERSHRED! Right there, we know we’ve got our men hooked! The nice thing is, is that it also benefits us! We have less paper clutter around right, and we don’t have to worry about identity theft because it shreds it so small.

I’ll tell you now that this Fellowes Shredder is heavy! I picked up the box when it came to the porch and I was thinking.. wow, this sucker is good! I have a shredder now that is soon going to be replaced. It gets jammed really easy and then heats up after just a couple minutes and I can’t do anymore shredding.

Here it is! It’s such a nice size.  You just put the upper power unit down onto the basket, remove some tape and plug it in… it’s ready to go.

One of the things that we accumulate way too much of is paper! Think about how much junk mail you get on a daily basis.

So much of that junk mail can be used to cause you a deal of great anguish if it falls into the wrong hands.  Any mail with your personal information on it should be shredded. Also any old credit cards need to be shredded. I’m happy to see that this can also handle those.

Here is a size scale, you can see the actual size of it.  You all know the size of hanging files right? So I put it next to my portable hanging file so you can see.

Now I’m going to test it.  One of the things that we all get so much of are those pesky charge card offers. I don’t even like to open them, but my other shredder couldn’t handle putting them in whole. In fact, I had to open them and unfold the papers to feed it in.  Here we go….

It worked!  It did stop about 3/4 of the way through and I thought it was going to be jammed. The red light came on and after about 3 seconds it started going again and finished the job. I did several more the same way and the same thing happened.  Of course when I opened one and took the envelope off, it went easier and didn’t stop. I didn’t have to unfold it to run easily.

Here are the results. They were little strips 1 1/2 – 2″ long. As a suggestion from me, I would have liked to have seen those strips diced even smaller, but this still did a better job than my other shredder.


I really like the fact that when you touch the area around the feed… it turns off automatically.  When you have young kids, that is a really nice security blanket to have.


* Jam Blocker ™ There is an electronic sensor that measures the amount of paper and prevents over feeding
* 10 sheet cross-cut – Turns a piece of paper into 399 pieces so you can’t read anything.
* Shreds credit cards, paper clips and staples
* 5 gallon basket
* 8 minutes continuous run time without shutting off
* Safesense® Technology – automatically shuts off when hands touch the paper opening
* Energy Savings System is in use rather the shredder is in use or not.

I can hardly wait to give this to my husband this Christmas! (Now to pack it back up so I can wrap it!) It is larger than I thought it was going to be. It’s heavier than I expected it to be. Both of those things combined in a shredder, mean a higher quality shredder to me.

I am planning on giving this to my Dad. He LOVES office equipment and he only has a small one sheeter shredder. He will be SO excited! I will update this post with a picture once I give it to him.

  2. Sandy says:

    Oh thanks for letting me know Rebecca! I was wondering why no one had entered yet. Hopefully I’ve taken care of it. I re-entered the rafflecopter again.

  3. Love love Fellowes products and I desperately need a new shredder – my old one broke.

  4. Jennifer B says:

    Because I don’t throw out any old papers because I don’t have a shredder. I really don’t need EVERY bank statement. Really would help me with some paper clutter

  5. Amy says:

    I like using paper shred for crafts so this would be great!

  6. We are hoping to move in the next few months and going through papers and finding tons that I no longer need. A shredder would be perfect to get rid of them.

  7. Michelle says:

    I would love a shredder because I ummm broke my last one when I shredded my old checkbooks. You don’t want to see the pile I have that needs shredding. It’s sad.

  11. Diane Ashley says:

    I had my identity stolen and hated how vulnerable it made me feel. With a shredder it would give me more confidence in knowing that my identity is safe from weirdos.

  12. Certainly would be a great gift, thanks for the opportunity!

  13. Naomi says:

    The shredder I have is a teeny tiny one and not really up to the workload I need to run through it. I need a manly shredder, ha!

    I would love a shredder because I don’t have one and my husband is crazy for one of this! Nice christmas gift!

  17. Kay M. says:

    I’m always paranoid about our garbage because we live out in the country. People are always stopping and putting garbage in our cans because they are close to the road (I’d rather that than them throwing it out the car window!). As the road is on the backside of our house, I never know if they are going through the garbage, or just throwing things away. With this, I wouldn’t have to worry…and I’d have plenty of packing paper for mailing things out!!

  18. Adrienne gordon says:

    It’d be great to shred old documents.

  24. Ann Fantom says:

    If I won, I would shred my old unneeded income tax forms and pre-approved credit card applications. The motor on my current shredder is burned out.

  25. Louis says:

    I like that it is so heavy duty – my current shredder shreds only maybe 3 sheets of paper at a time but never a whole envelope

  54. Customers think that the brewing time can be a little long but the coffee
    is excellent. Always remember how the secret to possess a good tasting coffee an excellent coffee bean and also the right temperature of water for your taste of
    the coffee will vary around the temperature of hot water that
    you employ. This keurig also features chrome accents, a blue, back lit LCD
    display and three brew size.

  55. memit.com says:

    This saves you a lot of time if you’re a frequent
    traveler, as it prevents you from having to remove your backpack
    every time you go through security. You wouldn’t want
    anything within your bag poking you in the back, why
    would you think your dog would. When a heavier weight than this is placed on the
    shoulders, it will cause imbalance and pull the person backwards.
