High performance for frequent shredding needs

The Fellowes SB-80 Strip-Cut Shredderappears to be a solid machine with very competitive specs relative tothe competition. Used properly I’m not sure why you wouldn’t have thismachine for quite some time. Below we break down the individual specs.


This is the second lowest level of security available rated at a 2.This strip-cut shredder is a tad better than a level 1 machine but nota whole lot. If you are really concerned about the information on yourdocuments then we highly recommend that you start looking at some ofthe cross-cut machines. The one benefit of the strip-cut machine isthat you can shred faster and more pages per pass. Just make sure thatyou are choosing the right security level for your needs.

Shredable Material

The Fellowes SB-80 Strip-Cut Shreddercan shred CDs, Credit Cards, Paper, Paper Clips, Staples. If you needto be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at alarger machine and/or look for something with a little bit lowersecurity (the higher the security the less likelihood that the machineshreds something other than paper).

Continuous Motor

This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means thattheoretically you could shred all day long and the machine would nothave to shut-down to cool off. Remember that results may vary underreal-world operating conditions and things such as the temperature ofthe room will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool andcontinue to shred. We give this machine 2 pats on the back for beingrated continuous duty and we know that you’ll appreciate this featurein due time.

Bin Size

At 7 gallons, the Fellowes SB-80 Strip-Cut Shredder is apersonal/deskside machine. You won’t be able to shred too much beforeyou have to empty it, but presumably you won’t be shredding thatfrequently. If you will, we recommend that you jump up to somethingwith a bigger bin size.

Throat Size

With a 9 inch throat this shredder gets the job done but doesn’tleave much room for error. Your paper will fit in just fine but you’lljust need to make sure that it doesn’t bunch up and cause problems. Ifyou have odd sized paper, you may want to think about getting somethingwith a larger throat.


The Fellowes SB-80 Strip-Cut Shredder comes with a 1 year on themachine/7 years on the Cutter. This means that you have plenty of timeto test out the machine and make sure that everything is runningsmoothly. Just make sure to properly care for your machine and youshouldn’t have any issues.


With an MSRP of $369.98 this shredder is not the cheapest around butremember to NEVER pay the full amount. You can find discounts of up to50% off if you look around on the web.
