MBM Destroyit 2270 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 2270 Cross Cut Paper ShredderIf I were to be asked which paper shredder I would personally like to have next to my desk for daily office shredding, I would have to say that one of my personal choices would be the MBM Destroyit 2270 cross cut paper shredder (found here). This shredder comes from a long line of quality shredders, is made in Germany and is relatively compact. This is my review.

While paper shredders may not be the most exciting topic in your list of daily conversations, I have literally worked with them for over 10 years. Over those 10 years, I have come to appreciate paper shredders for their engineering and technological sophistication. There are a lot of paper shredders available today, and while they all do the same thing, the differences between different models are almost as stark as night and day.

The MBM Destroyit 2270 is technologically innovative, due in part to the German roots of this shredder. From the ground up, this shredder has been built to handle most jobs thrown at it. While it is a deskside shredder, designed for use by one person, it can be used continuously without a hiccup.

Rather than trying to accommodate a paper shredder blade for other uses, Destroyit has incorporated two separate feed openings in conjunction with two separate cutting heads. One opening is used for paper, measuring in at 8 ¾” wide, and the other is designed to shred CDs, DVDs and credit cards. This ads a huge degree of versatility to the shredder. The hardened steel blades on the paper shredder opening are tough enough to handle paper clips and staples.

One huge concern with any paper shredder is safety. You’ve probably heard the horror stories of babies getting their fingers caught in shredders or dogs getting their tongues cut off. Put those fears to rest. The Destroyit 2270 utilizes several safety features. This includes a transparent safety shield in the feed opening that only allows paper to be fed through. The shredder also turns off when the cabinet door is open.

The actual use of this shredder is fairly easy. You’ll notice on the picture of this shredder that there is only one switch. You can turn the shredder on, off or throw the motor into reverse. When on, the 2270 uses a photocell to detect paper, which in turn activates the motor. It is very easy to operate.

The build quality on the MBM Destroyit 2270 is excellent. Just try lifting the shredder head off of the cabinet. It is tough to do, in large part thanks to the heavy-duty materials used in the Destroyit 2270’s construction. The entire shredder, including the bin, weighs in at 32 pounds.

Design plays a huge roll in my purchasing decisions. I know this shouldn’t always be the case, but you want your shredder to look nice. The Destroyit 2270 is a great looking machine. The clear window on the waste bin looks classy and lets you know how full the shredder is.

Overall, if the budget allows, I would highly recommend the Destroyit 2270 for your deskside office use. This is a solid, reliable and relatively quiet shredder. I give it a solid 5 out of 5 stars. Remember, however, that it is really only designed for individual use.

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

Friday, April 8th, 2011

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.

MBM Destroyit 4005 Paper Shredder Review

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 4005 Departmental Paper ShredderDo you need a departmental paper shredder capable of handling some of the toughest jobs? Do you need something that is centralized that can be used by multiple people in an office environment throughout the day? If so, you probably need a shredder like the MBM Destroyit 4005 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

Let me provide you with a little background on Destroyit paper shredders. To begin with, Destroyit shredders aren’t typically found in your local department store. This is because Destroyit paper shredders are considered high-end pieces of machinery, opposite to the cheaper plastic shredders you’ll find in local stores. Destroyit shredders are German engineered and German made.

The Destroyit 4005 is a tough shredder, designed from the ground up for departmental use. It comes in three different versions, one strip cut and two cross cut variations. The version you use will depend on the shredding capacity your office needs and the security requirements of your business.

The strip cut version is a Level 2 shredder and the cross cut shredders are Levels 3 and 4. The higher the level, the smaller the particle cut. As the security level goes up, you are able to shred more sensitive material, but usually at a decreased capacity. You’ll notice that the Level 2 version shreds 50-52 sheets at a time and the Level 4 shreds 18-20 at a time.

All three of these shredders feature thermally protected motors that allows them to be used throughout the day without the need to cool down. All three of these shredders also feature the ability to handle paper clips, staples, CDs and DVDs. The wide 16″ opening handles most sheets of paper.

Not only does the Destroyit 4005 have a high shredding capacity, but it is also very fast, taking just seconds to shred paper. As soon as you feed paper into it you are ready to feed it more. As mentioned earlier, this shredder is designed from the ground up to be a departmental workhorse.

One thing I personally like about the Destroyit 4005 is the control panel. Destroyit calls it the “Easy Switch.” It is essentially a button that uses color codes and backlit symbols to help navigate you. It also lets you know the status of the shredder at all times.

A series of load indicator lights let you know how much stress is being put on the motor at all times, which makes it easier for you to determine how much paper you can feed it without manually counting the sheets prior to shredding. In the unlikely event of a jam, this shredder will reverse out the paper and cut off the power. This prevents damage to the motor.

The Destroyit 4005 features a 40-gallon shred bin, a high-quality wooden cabinet and is extremely easy to empty. After one hour of inactivity, the 4005 goes into ESM (Energy Saving Mode), which is designed to save on electricity.

Simply put, this is a great shredder to use in an office by multiple people. The build quality is excellent, the chain driven dust-proof gear box housing is solid and this should easily keep up with just about everything you throw at it. I highly recommend this shredder.

Be aware that the Destroyit 4005 does require a dedicated 20-amp line for power.

MBM Destroyit 3103 Paper Shredder Review

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

MBM Destroyit 3103 Paper ShredderDoes your business, organization or facility need a high-volume paper shredder that can be reliably used throughout the day? With many machines out there, you may be having trouble settling on any one make or model. One paper shredder you may want to take a look at is the MBM Destroyit 3103 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

MBM Destroyit (by IDEAL) makes some of the worlds most popular shredders. Destroyit shredders are commonly found in government offices and military bases around the worlds. These German engineered and German built shredders have developed a great reputation for being some of the hardiest shredders around.

The Destroyit 3103 paper shredder currently comes in two different formats, strip cut and cross cut. Other than the cutting blade used, everything else on these two variations are practically identical. They both feature large 37 gallon shred bins and continuous duty motors.

The biggest difference between the cross cut and the strip cut versions of the 3103 is the cutting capacity and the security level. The strip cut version of this shredder is a Level 2 and the cross cut version is a Level 3. The higher the security level, the tinier the particle size and the more secure the cut is.

The Level 2 (strip cut) version of this shredder can cut up to 22 sheets of paper at a time and the Level 3 (cross cut) version can cut up to 15 sheets of paper at a time. Both of these cutting capacities are impressive considering the size of the shredder.

The Destroyit 3103 has a large 12″ wide feed opening that is capable of handling letter-size paper, envelopes, computer forms and more. It ca also handle several smaller items been fed through at once. The hardened steel cutting shafts not only shred paper, but they can also handle staples, paper clips, credit cards and CDs.

The “Easy Switch” design of the 3103 makes operating this shredder extremely easy. Simply rock the large round button forward to turn the shredder on. Press it again to turn the shredder off. Rock the switch back and the motor is thrown into reverse.

Several sensors let you know when the bag is full and when the door is open. After an hour of inactivity, the 3103 will go into energy saving model, which dramatically cuts down on electricity use.

If you aren’t already impressed by the build quality of the 3103, you will probably be impressed by the warranty. The 3103 carries a lifetime warranty on the cutting blades and a one-year warranty on everything else.

Simply put, this shredder is reliable, extremely easy to use and looks great. Placed on casters, this shredder is easy to move around and is ideal for use in a centralized office location. I would personally recommend this shredder for just about any office.

MBM Destroyit 2503 Paper Shredder Review

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Destroyit 2503 Paper ShredderDo you need a paper shredder that’s more robust than a deskside shredder that can be used on a departmental level? If so, you may want to consider a centralized shredder like the MBM Destroyit 2503 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

MBM Destroyit (by IDEAL) makes some of the most reputable and best recognized office paper shredders today. These shredders are engineered and build in Germany. To date, Destroyit makes over 20 different models of shredders. This doesn’t include the strip cut, cross cut and high security variations.

The Model 2503 has been categorized by Destroyit as a centralized office shredder. This means it is designed to be placed in a centralized location for use by multiple people. This also means the 2503 has a continuous-duty motor that can be used throughout the day without needing to cool down.

While capacity is always nice to have in a shredder, speed is also very important. The Destroyit 2503 is fast. This shredder takes your paper and shreds it in just seconds. This is a stark difference from other shredders that seem to chug along while trying to shred paper. Speed is ideal for an office environment and is great when you are shredding a lot of material.

The Destroyit 2503 is available as a strip cut and two different cross cut variations. The Level 2 strip cut shreds about 19-21 sheets, the Level 3 cross cut shreds about 12-14 sheets and the Level 4 cross cut shreds about 8-10 sheets of 20# paper at a time. The higher the security level, the smaller the particle size. The smaller the particle size, the lower the capacity typically is.

While most paper shredders are designed to accept paper up to letter-size, the 2503 has a large 10 ¼” opening. This makes it easy to shred envelopes, letter-size paper, jumbled paper and much more. It is extremely easy to use.

One of my favorite features is the user interface. The newly-designed interface is about as simple and useful as they come. The rocker-style button lights up green when on (making it easy to see the shredder is on) and can be tilted back for reverse mode. Several LED indicators let you know when the back is full, door is open and much more.

The cutting blades on the Destroyit 2503 are made from high quality steel. These blades are nice, designed to handle paper for years and can easily handle staples, paper clips and credit cards. The strip cut and Level 3 cross cut versions of this shredder can even handle CDs and DVDs.

The 26 gallon shred bin holds a lot of paper. This means fewer bag changes for you. Because this shredder has a cabinet door design and a pullout bag frame, bag changes are extremely easy. Casters also make this shredder easy to move around.

I have to say that few shredders compare to the 2503 in an office environment. This shredder is excellent and well worth the price. This shredder will outlast other cheaper shredders by 2-3 times longer or more. It simply has an excellent rack record.

MBM Destroyit 2360 Paper Shredder Review

Monday, February 14th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 2360 Deskside Paper ShreddersIf you are looking for a great all-around small office paper shredder, you should take a long and serious look at the MBM Destroyit 2360 paper shredder (found here). This paper shredder has developed a great reputation among our customers. This is my review.

To begin with, the MBM Destroyit 2360 (by IDEAL) is available in several different versions. This includes a strip cut, a cross cut and a high security super micro cut version (SMC). All three of these shredders are equally comparable in quality with the biggest difference being the cut style and the sheet capacity. These shredders are German designed and German made.

Destroyit recently implemented a new design to their line of paper shredders that I find extremely creative and customer friendly. The got rid of all the separate buttons you often find in shredders and added a simple rocker button.

This button allows you to turn on the shredder, turn off the shredder and put the shredder into reverse. This same rocker button also includes several indicator lights that will let you know when the shredder is full, the door is open and more.

The Destroyit 2360 has a large 9-¼ gallon waste bin. This size of bin holds a lot of paper and makes bag changes less frequent. This is especially nice for a deskside paper shredder.

Unlike many department store style shredders that can easily overheat, the Destroyit 2360 utilizes a durable thermally protected motor that allows this shredder to run continuously throughout the day. The single-phase motor is very quiet compared to other similar shredders. This is especially nice for an office environment.

The Destroyit 2360 uses specially hardened steel cutting shafts that allow this shredder to accept staples, paper clips and credit cards. These hardened blades also allow the 2360 to operate at a high rate of speed. Almost as soon as you feed this shredder paper, it has finished the job.

Many people have concerns over the safety of a shredder. The 2360 uses an SPS (Safety Protection System) package. This includes an electronically controlled transparent safety shield. This shield is located in the opening of the shredder. If this shield is lifted open, it will turn the shredder off. This shield also has just enough clearance to allow the maximum amount of paper to be fed through.

Overall I consider the Destroyit 2360 to be a solid deskside paper shredder for just about any office. It looks good, is built well and is ideal for shredding throughout the day. It should easily last for several years.

MBM Destroyit 2403 Paper Shredder Review

Friday, February 11th, 2011

MBM Destroyit 2403 Paper ShreddersKeeping your personal information safe, secure and inaccessible is critical to protecting your identity. One great way to help cut down on identity theft is by using a paper shredder. Unfortunately many paper shredders out there aren’t up to the task. One reliable shredder that you may want to consider using is the MBM Destroyit 2403 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

Destroyit (by IDEAL) continues to be one of the leading paper shredder manufacturers around. These German engineered and German made shredders are known for lasting years to even decades. MBM Destroyit shredders come in a variety of sizes, depending on where they will be used and how many people will use them.

The Destroyit 2403 is definitely an office shredder, although it can be used at home. It is available in both a strip cut (Security Level 2) and a cross cut (Security Level 4) version, depending on your preference and desired shredder security level. The strip cut can shred more paper at once, but the cross cut shreds paper into tinier pieces.

Destroyit has really refined the user controls for shredders. The 2403, as with most Destroyit shredders, utilizes a rocker control for shredder operation. The button tilts forward to turn it on and off. When on, the button is green. It tilts back to but the shredder into reverse mode, turning the switch red.

A series of lights let you know if the shredder is full or if door is open. It even features a load indicator that will stop the shredder if too much paper is fed in and will back the paper back out. This helps to prevent paper jams.

One thing you will probably notice when you use the 2403 is how fast it is. Unlike many cheap department store shredders, the Destroyit 2403 shreds paper in just seconds. It is gone almost as fast as you can feed it in. This is ideal for shredding large amounts of paper.

The Destroyit 2403 is not only fast, but it is also extremely safe to use. It implements what is called the Safety Protection System (SPS) package. This includes a transparent safety shield that prevents accidental shredding and personal injury.

The blades on the 2403 are tough. Both the strip cut and cross cut versions use high-quality hardened steel blades. These blades allow the 2403 to easily handle staples, paper clips and credit cards. The strip cut version can even shred CDs.

The 2403 can easily be placed next to a desk or along a wall for use by multiple people. The motor is thermally protected, allowing it to be continually used without a cool down period. As is the case with all Destroyit shredders, the 2403 is quieter than your average shredder.

I highly recommend this shredder for use in the office. It is dependable, reliable and extremely effective at shredding paper. I give this shredder a solid 5 out of 5 stars. You won’t be disappointed.

They may look pretty, with their plastic molded shells, but ultimately it’s what inside that counts.

I have personal experience with dozens of different makes, models and brands of shredders.

Destroyit 2604 SMC (Super Micro Cut) Paper Shredder Review

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

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.

MBM Destroyit 2604 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review

Monday, November 8th, 2010

MBM Destroyit 2604 Level 3 Cross Cut Paper ShredderI recently had the opportunity of unboxing and helping set up an MBM Destroyit 2604 cross cut paper shredder (found here) on our showroom floor. Now that I have had a chance to play around with it and run it through a few trial runs, I have a pretty good idea on how it works. This is my review.

To begin with, the MBM Destroyit line (by IDEAL) has a great reputation with businesses. With a wide range of sizes and cutting capacities, Destroyit has quickly become an office favorite. Destroyit shredders are German engineered and German built from the ground up with quality and ease-of-use in mind.

My first impression, upon unboxing the Destroyt 2604, was how heavy it was. It took two of us to take the shredder head and lift it onto the cabinet. I have to say that I am extremely impressed as to the build quality. The particular model we unboxed and used was the cross cut version.

Destroyit 2604 Cross Cut Shredder Control PanelThe shredder sits on casters, so mobility shouldn’t be an issue (although it is a heavy beast). It weighs in at 119 pounds shipped. The exact dimensions of the 2604 are 18 1/2″ x 22 1/2″ x 36 1/2″.

One thing that I immediately noticed as we set up the shredder was the waste bin. Unlike many departmental shredders that have you put in a free-floating plastic bag, the 2604 has an actual plastic bin where you can place a shredder bag liner. This makes the 2604 very easy to empty and much cleaner to use.

Keep in mind that the 2604 is a departmental shredder, designed to be used by about 4-8 people. Destroyit makes office shredders that are much bigger, for an entire office. The 2604 could probably be used by an entire office and not even flinch.

The Destroyit 2604 (cross cut) we used is rated as a Level 3 shredder. The cross cut blades cut particles into 3/16″ x 1 1/2″ (4 x 40 mm) pieces, although it is also available in a level 4 with particle sizes of 3/32″ x 5/8″ (2 x 15 mm). It is also available in a Level 6 micro cut. These blades are able to handle staples, credit cards and CDs. The sheet capacity of the Level 3 model is 20-22 sheets of standard copy paper.

The control panel on this shredder is about the easiest around to use. It uses a rocker button for operational control. Press it forward to turn the shredder on and backwards to put the shredder in reverse. It’s that easy. Several LED lights are in the button that will let you know when the door is open and when the bag is full.

A series of 7 lights let you know how much stress is being put on the shredder. The more lights, the more stress. I like this system because it gives you an idea on how much paper you can feed into it without counting the paper ahead of time. The 2604 has a continuous duty motor that does not require any cool down and can be used all day long.

The 2604 we unboxed in the showroom has a built-in automatic oiler which is pretty slick. It has a clear tube going into the back of the shredder, supplying the blades with a adequate amount of lubrication. An oil bottle sits on the side of the shredder. This is far easier than manually oiling a shredder and dramatically prolongs its life.

I can’t emphasize enough in words how good the build quality is on this shredder. I highly recommend it for pretty much an office department. You won’t be disappointed.
