MBM Destroyit 2270 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review
MBM Destroyit is known for delivering high quality products and their 2270 Cross Cut Shredder is no exception.

These along with other beneficial design features provide convenient and efficient shredding. Let's take a closer look at MBM's 2270.
The petite dimensions of this shredder allow it to store easily next to a desk for quick access.

But it only weighs about 32 pounds, so moving it around to find the perfect location shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
A single, multifunction switch controls standby, stop (off), and reverse functions. Each operation is indicated by a backlit icon to keep the user updated. As materials slide into the feed, a photo cell sensor turns the blades on and off as needed. The automatic off also activates when the bin is removed.
The powerful single phase motor is double protected from overheating, prolonging the life of the engine and preventing burnout. Durable gears are housed in a dust-proof enclosure to cut down on wear and increase service life.
A clear safety shield guards the 8.75 inch opening from fingers and other objects getting caught in the blades. Up to six sheets can shred at once, going through as fast as 12 feet per minute. The plastic slot accommodates credit cards, CDs, and DVDs. Materials come out in small particles only 1/8" by 1" in size and provide a level 3 security rating. This is excellent for generic office shredding as well as most confidential information.
