Dahle 10560 Paper Folding Machine Review

Dahle 10560 Paper Folding MachineDo you need a cheap and affordable paper folder that can also multi-fold up to three sheets at a time? If so, the Dahle 10560 paper folding machine (found here) may be just what you need. I have used this machine several times and will post my thoughts and feelings on it in this article. Hopefully this will help you determine if this is the right folding machine for you.

To begin with, the Dahle 10560 falls within a very select group of sub $500 paper folding machines. These types of paper folding machines are designed for low-volume use. This doesn’t mean you can only fold a few sheets per day, but it isn’t meant to be used continuously for large jobs.

The time it takes to pull this folding machine out of the box and set it up takes on a few minutes. Luckily very little assembly is required. All you really have to do is set up the stand and attach a couple of components.

The Dahle 10560 uses folding plates to create letter folds, accordion folds, single folds and more. The folds are clearly marked on the two folding plates. Once these plates have been adjusted for the fold, the 10560 can begin folding paper.

The hopper on the Dahle 10560 holds up to 50 sheets of paper. It is designed to be used with either 8 ½” x 11″ letter-size or A4 paper. It is designed to be used with 16-20lb paper, so nothing thicker than copy paper. It will not work with glossy or coated paper as the rubber wheels tend to slip on the slick surface.

This folding machine is extremely compact and very easy to move around. It weighs in at 21 pounds. I picked it up and it didn’t seem much heavier to me than a basic printer. I do, however, recommend moving the folding machine and the stand separately.

The Dahle 10560 is perfect for using on the side of a desk or on a table. It is several times faster than folding paper by hand and is a significant step up from the basic electric letter folding machines out there.  It is  great for folding invoices, letters, bills, pamphlets and more.

My favorite feature of the Dahle 10560 is the multi-sheet folding capability. A bypass slot on the top of the folding machine allows you to manually feed up to three sheets of stapled or unstapled paper for multi-sheet folding. This feature works remarkably well. Just be aware that it will only multi-fold paper as fast as you can feed it into the machine.

Overall I consider this to be a great little folding machine. If you treat it well, and set it up properly, it should easily last you for a long time.
