MBM Destroyit 2360 SMC (Super Micro Cut) Paper Shredder Review

MBM Destroyit 2360 SMC (Super Micro Cut) High Security Paper ShredderDo you need a compact and affordable Level 6 paper shredder for office or business use? Most Level 6 shredders are large and a bit of an investment. One affordable option is the Destroyit 2360 SMC Level 6 paper shredder (found here), designed for top secret and high security shredding. This is my review.

Level 6 shredders provide the highest level of confidential shredding available. Particles have to fall within a 1mm x 4-5mm range, which is extremely tiny. These types of shredders are extremely popular with government entities, the military and for many businesses. Destroyit is known for making some of the best high security shredders available.

The MBM Destroyit 2360 SMC (Super Micro Cut) is not only a Level 6 paper shredder, but is also DOD approved, adhering to the most strict NSA / CSS specifications. Break out a ruler and try to grasp this size. The Destroyit 2360 SMC cuts a sheet of paper into 0.8 x 5 mm particles. That is literally thousands of pieces of paper. This is why the 2360 SMC is perfect for high security shredding.

Now that you have an idea on why you may want to use the 2360 SMC, let me go into the build quality. This shredder is German engineered and built. I say this because this shredder is night and day difference from the competition when it comes to durability and quality. The cutting shafts used in this shredder are made from hardened steel and carry with them a one-year warranty. The gears are made from high-quality material and are fully enclosed in a dust-free environment, prolonging the life of the shredder.

The 9 ½” wide throat on this shredder can handle 5-7 sheets of paper at a time. You may say to yourself, “Only 5-7 sheets? That doesn’t seem like much.” You need to remember the complexity of the cutting shaft used in this shredder. A lot of force and engineering complexity is required to cut a sheet of paper into 0.8 x 5 mm particles.

The smaller the cut, the fewer the amounts of sheets the shredder can handle. For the price, and the security level, 5-7 sheets isn’t bad. Be aware that this shredder is fast. Once you feed it 5-7 sheets, you will be ready to feed another stack in just seconds. This shredder uses a photo cell to detect paper and will automatically start shredding as soon as paper is detected.

The control panel on the 2360 SMC is very user friendly. Destroyit has managed to integrate pretty much all the controls into one button that they call the “Easy Switch.” This large round switch lets you turn the shredder on and reverse the motor. It also includes lights, color codes and backlight symbols to let you know what is going on at all times.

An office shredder should have the ability to be used throughout the day, right? The Destroyit 2360 SMC utilizes a thermally protected motor that allows it to be used continuously throughout the day, without the need to “cool down.” The single-phase motor is also insulated in a way that it is very quiet while in use.

In conclusion, I have to say that if you have the need for light to medium-volume high-security shredding, you won’t be disappointed with the MBM Destroyit 2360 SMC. This shredder looks great, is easy to use and gets the job done right.
