Dahle 848 Professional Stack Paper Cutter Review

Dahle 848 Professional Stack Paper CutterStack paper cutters have a variety of different uses. They can be used to cut larger paper down into tiny strips, create business cards, cut down prints and much more. Finding an effective stack paper cutter can be tough. I’ll be honest. There is a lot of junk out there floating around on the Internet.

At ABC Office, we try to only carry high-quality products, which includes stack paper cutters. One stack cutter that continues to be popular with our customers, and offers a great track record, is the Dahle 848 professional stack paper cutter (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, all of Dahle’s stack paper cutters feature high-quality German engineering and build construction. This means that our Dahle line of paper cutters hold up well with continued use. This includes the Dahle 848.

The Dahle 848 is completely manually operated. Don’t let this scare you off. Although it is manual, it is remarkably easy to set up and it is very easy to use. It can still be used to keep up with medium to higher-volume jobs.

The blade is capable of cutting up to 700 sheets of standard paper in a single pass. This means if you need to cut a few thousand documents, prints or sheets of paper, you will only need to make a few passes of the blade to get the job done.

If you look at a picture of the Dahle 848, you will notice that the cutting handle is fairly long and features a series of angles. These angles aren’t just for design, they provide incredible amounts of leverage, which makes stack cutting easy.

The backstop on the Dahle 848 is spindle driven and it locks in place. This makes the backstop extremely sturdy and stable. It also makes adjusting the backstop for precision cuts simple and easy. This is also ideal for repetitive cutting.

Both sides of the blade, including the paper, are covered and protected by a clear protective shield. This shield is designed to prevent injuries, and if opened, disable the ability of the Dahle 848 to cut paper.

We have sold the Dahle 848 for well over 10 years now, at least since I started working here, and this cutter has a great track record with our customers. While I still personally prefer the MBM Triumph cutters, I still consider the Dahle 848 to be an excellent value for the money.
