MBM Destroyit 2503 Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review
MBM Destroyit is known for quality office products and their 2503 Cross Cut Paper Shredder is no exception. Designed for heavy duty, high volume use, this centralized office shredder can handle large amounts of material daily. Decent capacities and a plethora of automatic features make this an ideal system for your office. Here is a closer look at the 2503.
This device is equipped with MBM's Safety Protection System. A transparent safety shield covers the 10.25 inch opening, safeguarding against flying particles and preventing fingers or other objects from being caught in the blades. An "Easy Switch" controls three options in one: stand-by, stop (off), and reverse. Stop is activated when the machine detects a full shred bag, an open cabinet door, or a paper jam. In the event of a jam, the automatic reverse is triggered, feeding the overfed paper back out to the user. An energy saving "sleep" mode is activated after one hour of inactivity.
The high quality hardened steel blades are backed by a lifetime warranty while the rest of the machine carries a one year warranty (except wearables). They are powered by a durable, single phase motor which is double protected against overheating. A dustproof housing encloses the gearbox, preventing corrosion from paper particles.
A wide 10.25 inch opening accepts up to 14 sheets at once, including stapled and paper clipped documents as well as credit cards and CDs. The blades digest them as fast as 24 feet per minute, allowing you to spend less time shredding and more time on other tasks. The cross cut shreds come out in small 3/16 inch by 1/12 inch pieces, tiny enough to earn a level 3 security rating.
A wooden, noise-reducing cabinet contains a pull-out bag frame for disposable shred bags. The bags have a sizable 26 gallon shred volume. The whole unit is mounted on casters for easy mobility.
Although cross cut, this device only offers a level 3 security rating. The tiny confetti created by the blades is small enough to be secure for most office purposes. However, if your business needs to dispose of many high risk documents, this same model is available with a higher security rating.
The 10.25 inch opening limits what can easily slide into the opening. For smaller office shredders, this is a normal width and doesn't present a problem for many businesses. If you find yourself shredding a higher volume of wider documents, you might consider an upgrade to a model with a wider throat width.
The blades only accept 12-14 sheets at once. With rates as fast as 24 feet per minute, this is enough capacity for lower volumes of shredding. But for a centralized shredder, many offices may want to invest in a machine with larger handling capabilities.
Overall, the MBM Destroyit 2503 is a great heavy duty office shredder. Built for high volume use, this durable machine safely disposes of stapled and paper clipped documents, credit cards, and CDs. Automatic features make use easy and convenient. This is definitely one to check out next time you need a central office shredder.
