MBM Destroyit 3105 Cross-Cut Paper Shredder Review
MBM Destroyits are known to be high quality products and the 3105 Cross Cut is no exception. Equipped with high quality steel blades and a continuous use motor, this machine is hefty enough to shred large quantities of material, including staples, paperclips, credit cards and CDs, all day long. It is extremely easy to use as well as safe, thanks to the many automatic features installed. Let's take a closer look.
The automatic start and stop function is controlled by a photo cell that senses paper in the feed and shreds on cue. The opening is protected by a clear safety guard preventing ties and other objects from getting caught in the blades. One multipurpose switch controls stand-by, stop, and reverse functions and utilizes backlit optical signals to show the active status. Automatic stop is activated when the shred bag is full, the cabinet is open, or if there is a paper jam. Jams are easily cleared as the auto reverse spits out the overfed paper. Finally, an energy saving mode kicks in after inactivity for one hour, winding down to a "sleep" mode to save electricity.
The powerful single phase motor is double protected against overheating and rated for uninterrupted all day use. The sturdy chain drive stays running smoothly by the automatic oil injection system. A dustproof gearbox housing helps prevent corrosion. All these work to keep your shredder in top working condition.
A 12 inch wide opening accepts stapled and paperclipped documents as well as credit cards and CDs. The blades eat as many as 32 sheets at once as fast as 30 feet per minute, excellent rates for a cross cutting device. Exact capacity levels during use are displayed to show precisely how much the machine can take at that moment. The tiny particles left offer a level 3 security rating, helping to keep your information safe.
Shreds fall into a 48 gallon plastic bag, suspended on a pull-out bag frame that is mounted on rollers for easy discarding. A high quality wooden cabinet houses the bag and acts as a noise reducer by absorbing sound from the motor to give you a quieter shredding experience.
With particles only 3/16 inch by 1-1/2 inches, this shredder offers only a level 3 security rating. For all-purpose office use, level 3 provides enough security for most businesses. However, if your business needs a more secure disposal of sensitive material, this same model is available in a higher security version.
At 40 inches tall and weighing 324 pounds, this is a heavy device. Designed for heavy duty use, this is an average sized central shredder. And it is mounted on casters for easy mobility, making its weight something you won't need to worry too much about.
Overall, the MBM Destroyit 3105 is well able to handle the medium security shredding needs of your office. Automatic safety features ensure easy and stress-free use. Powerful blades efficiently destroy documents with staples and paperclips as well as credit cards and CDs, keeping your confidential information safe. The 3105 Cross Cut paper shredder is an excellent option for your next central office shredder.
