Carl HC-72 Heavy Duty 3-Hole Paper Punch Review

Carl HC-72 Heavy Duty 3 Hole Paper PunchThree-hole paper punching is one of the most common office activities, just below stapling. This is because many businesses use 3-ring binders to store and organize material. The only problem is that a lot of 3-hole paper punches out there are complete garbage, with many breaking simply by punching a few too many sheets of paper. If you need an ol’ reliable type of paper punch, you need the Carl HC-72 3-hole paper punch (found here). This is why.

To begin with, the Carl HC-72 looks great. It features a stylish multi-colored design. It is light enough to be used on any desk, yet heavy-duty enough to handle most 3-hole punching jobs. The HC-72 has several advantages.

The Carl HC-72 uses a solid beam handle that is leveraged in such a way that paper punching is easy and effortless. In fact, the HC-72 is capable of punching up to 72 sheets of standard 20lb paper per pass. This makes hole punching jobs easy and fast.

Many cheep molded sheet metal hole punches bend and break when punching too many sheets of paper. The HC-72 features all-metal construction that allows this hole punch to slice and dice paper without suffering any ill effects. Simply put, it is one of the most solid 3-hole paper punches out on the market.

Have you ever used a 3-hole paper punch only to discover that the last 2-3 sheets of paper don’t punch? This is annoying, can cause problems and simply shouldn’t happen. The Carl HC-72 utilizes special cutting disks that ensure that even the last sheet of paper is effectively punched.

Another annoying feature of many standard 3-hole punches is that they quickly become dull and usually have to be thrown away. The HC-72 uses specially hardened punching dies designed to hold up well with continued use.

If for any reason one of the punching dies becomes dull, replacement punching heads may be purchased and used to replaced the dull head. This saves you money and cuts down on waste.

Overall I consider the Carl HC-72 to be a solid office 3-hole paper punch ideal for use in the office, in schools, in churches and other organizations. For the price, the value can’t be beat.
