Destroyit 2604 SMC (Super Micro Cut) Paper Shredder Review

Destroyit 2604 SMC (Super Micro Cut) Level 6 High Security Paper ShredderDoes your business, organization or government agency need a paper shredder capable of destroying paper with top-secret Level 6 shredding capabilities? If this sounds like what you’re need, you should seriously consider the MBM Destroyit 2604 SMC (Super Micro Cut) paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

Destroyit paper shredders (by IDEAL) are in high demand. Unlike many plastic, cheap and toy-like shredders out there, Destroyit shredders feature some of the best and highest quality parts in the paper shredder industry. These shredders are German designed and German built. In one word, they are “TOUGH.”

The Destroyit 2604 SMC is a high security paper shredder designed to shred the most sensitive, top secret and confidential documents out there. It is classified as a Level 6 paper shredder and meets NSA requirements (NSA/CSS EPL-02-01-AA).

The 2604 SMC cuts paper into tiny 1/32″ x 3/16″ (.8 x 5 mm) particles. This particle size is so small it is almost difficult to comprehend.  That is thinner than a penny and the length is just barely over half the width (diameter) of a standard Bic pen. Particles this small are impossible to decipher and cannot be re-assembled.

Because the cut is so incredibly small, and the cutting head in the shredder is so complex, most Level 6 shredders are unable to shred more than a few sheets of paper at a time. The Destroyit 2604 SMC can shred up to 6-8 sheets of paper at a time based on standard copy paper thickness.

Apart from the amazing build quality of the 2604 SMC, this shredder also has many other amazing features. One of my favorites is the automatic oiler. Because this shredder has a cross cut pattern cutting head, a lot of friction is generated. This means the shredder needs to be oiled. It can be difficult to remember to oil a shredder. The automatic oiler on the 2604 SMC is just that, automatic. It will oil the shredder as is needed without any special attention. The only thing you need to worry about is making sure the oil bottle is full.

The control panel on the 2604 SMC is extremely easy to use and very intuitive. The rocker switch glows green when on and a capacity indicator lets you know how much stress is being put on the shredder.

The 10 ¼” opening handles most sizes of paper and envelopes without a problem. Sensors will let you know when the bag is full and the door is open. This shredder is very safe to operate. The motor is designed for continuous use.

I know this review sounds a little one-sided, but it really is that good. Very few other shredders out there compare to the quality and dependability of the Destroyit 2604 SMC for Level 6 shredding.
