The next generation Fellowes shredders

In 2020 Fellowes introduced its new line of professional, high-security paper shredders for office use. The PowerShred LX Series features intelligent technology with its IntelliBar. The LX Series consists of three (LX200, LX210, LX220) P-4 micro-cut paper shredding machines available in two colors, matt black, and matt white. The beautiful white color is a welcome addition because most of the Fellowes shredders are generally only available in black.

The new LX Series shredders seem to be the successors of the popular and well-known Fellowes Powershred Ci series shredders, such as the Fellowes Powershred 73Ci, Fellowes Powershred 79Ci, and Fellowes Powershred 99Ci.

Main advantages of the Fellowes LX shredders

  • Each LX shredder features the new and innovative Intellibar. This LED light strip on top of the shredder shows the current situation of the shredder. When the light turns red, it means, for example, that the feed capacity is exceeded. This prevents a possible paper-jam. And a green color indicates the potential of increasing the sheet capacity in real-time, which maximizes your shredding productivity. And there are several more functions.
  • The Fellowes Powershred LX shredders are perfectly sized to fit under or next to your office desk.
  • The LX series shredders destroy documents in accordance with DIN security level P-4 with a particle size of 5/32″ x 1/2″.
  • The ‘Zero Jamming’ feature ensures 100% Jam Proof operation. When a paper jam occurs, the shredder automatically detects this and powers through the tough shredding job.
  • When the user touches the shredder’s feed opening during operation, the Intellibar detects this and immediately stops the shredding process.
  • The Intellibar detects and shows the user when the maximum run-time gets reached and when the shredder needs to cool down.
  • The LX shredders are equipped with four casters, making it easy to roll the paper shredders around in your office.


Disadvantages of the LX series:

  • None of the LX shredders can destroy CDs or DVDs.
  • The shredders are relatively noisy with 70dB.
  • European versions of these shredders have a higher security level, namely DIN P-5 instead of DIN P-4 that is used for the US models.
