MBM DestroyIt 2404 Strip Cut Paper Shredder Review
When it comes to paper shredders, MBM Destroyits are some of the best. The 2404 Strip Cut paper shredder offers rapid, low security shredding designed for light to moderate usage. Backed by a one year warranty, this device is packed with safety features and can shred staples, paper clips, credit cards and CDs. The hardened steel blades carry a lifetime warranty and are powered by a durable single phase motor. Here is a closer look at the 2404 Strip Cut Shredder.
- A photo cell controlled automatic start and stop function turns on the motor immediately after sensing paper in the feed. An electronically controlled transparent safety shield covers the opening, keeping fingers and other objects out of the blades. The shield also keeps small particles released by shredding credit cards and CD from flying out of the cutting shaft. An "Easy Switch" is a single button that controls operation and offers three settings: stand-by, stop, and reverse. The element is backlit with color coded icons that indicate operational status. An automatic off is triggered when the shred bag is full, the cabinet is open, or if there is a paper jam. Auto reverse works by spitting out overfed paper in order to unclog a paper jam. After one hour of inactivity, the machine goes into an energy saving sleep mode, saving electricity.
- The shredder is powered by a robust single phase motor with double protection against overheating. The gearbox is fully enclosed in a dustproof housing. These two features keep your machine in top running condition and save you money on costly repairs.
- The 9.5 inch opening accepts 19-22 sheets at once and devours them as fast as 27 feet per minute. Strips only 3/16 inch wide fall into an environmentally friendly reusable plastic bag. The bag sits in a 13 gallon waste container housed in a wooden cabinet, which acts as a noise reducer.
- This shredder only provides a level 2 security. For general office disposal of low risk documents, this is protection enough. Those offices needing a higher security level may be interested in the cross cut version of this model which provides a level 4 security rating.
- The 9.5 inch throat width limits what easily slides into the shredder. With a capacity for 19-22 sheets at once and rates up to 27 feet per minute, the small opening can quickly handle whatever comes its way. But if your office shreds a large number of wider documents, you might be interested in one of MBM's larger models with a wider throat width.
In conclusion, the 2404 Strip Cut paper shredder is a good choice for a low security shredder designed for light to moderate use. Safety and automatic features give secure and convenient use. The high quality steel blades quickly and efficiently slice your paperwork into secure strips. A wooden cabinet reduces motor noise while a reusable plastic bag makes disposal easy. We would recommend the MBM Destroyit 2404 for your next office shredder.
