Dahle 842 Heavy Duty 200 Sheet 17 inches Stack Cutter Review
When it comes to selecting a paper cutter, it is important to choose a machine that can adequately handle the amount of paper you need to cut. That means if you are only going to be working with smaller amounts of paper (such as personal craft projects), a rotary/rolling trimmer would be a good pick. But the more paper you cut, the more cutting power you need. A guillotine paper cutter can help you cut multiple pieces of paper, but when you have a huge cutting job - such as one that's hundreds of pages long - a stack cutter is an excellent option. Dahle manufactures several different stack cutters, including some that are professional-grade. One of these is the 842 cutter, a machine that can chop through up to 200 sheets of paper. Scroll down and continue reading about this stack cutter to discover what is good - and not so good - about it.
- The Dahle 842 professional-grade cutter can cut up to 200 sheets of paper. It can also cut items that are up to 16-7/8 inch long and it can handle both regular photocopier paper and card stock. This stack cutter has blades that are made from high quality German Solingen steel, which makes it possible for it to easily cut such large quantities of paper. Each cut will be clean and crisp, making your work look extremely professional.
- Safety needs to be addressed when using such a potentially dangerous machine as a stack cutter. So it's good to know that the 842 is one of the safest machines you can use. The machine has a safety shield that help prevent your limbs from meeting the blade every time you use the machine. This makes the 842 one of the safest stack cutters available.
- The 842 has a paper clamp that ensures accurate cutting. It also has an adjustable backstop that can come in handy if you need to cut over and over again.
- This cutter can be used on your own work surface, but if space is limited, you can purchase an optional stand for the cutter. The stand will provide you with the right leverage you need to for an easy cutting experience. Also, the cutting stand has a shelf which can give you more room to storage your supplies.
- The cutting table of the 842 is metal, so it is very durable. Also, it has measurements in both inches and centimeters, so it's easy to measure your document using your preferred measurement system.
- The 842 has a handle on the right side of the machine. This means that left-handed people could have a challenging time when using this cutter.
- This is a manual stack cutter that lacks the features of electric cutters such as a laser guide that can help you get the most accurate cut possible.
- This stack cutter is a bit pricey, with a price point of $1,799.00. The optional floor stand will cost you an additional $399.00, so this cutter and stand might not be within reach for companies that are on tight budgets.
If you can live with the 842's price and handle, this is a great stack cutter and a wise investment. So take a look at the Dahle 842 professional-grade stack cutter now.
