MBM Destroyit 4005 Cross-Cut Paper Shredder Review
At the top of MBM's line of centralized office shredders sits the 4005. This cross cut version offers a robust, heavy duty machine to meet the medium security needs of medium to larger offices. With blades backed by a lifetime warranty, the powerful motor quickly puts through paper and other media. Automatic features provide easy use. Here is a closer look at the Destroyit 4005 Cross Cut shredder.
A wide opening is guarded by a safety shield, preventing fingers from accidentally entering the blades. As paper is inserted, a photo cell sensor turns on the machine as soon as needed. A single multifunction switch is easily operated and controls stand-by, stop, and reverse functions. Backlit icons show the device's status. The machine stops automatically if the cabinet door is open, the shred bag is full, or there is a jam. Paper jams also trigger the auto reverse, which slides the overfed items back out to the user. If the shredder sits idle for an hour, an Energy Save Mode powers it down to "sleep" to save electricity.
The powerful single phase motor is rated for continuous run and double protected from overheating. Long-lasting gears are housed in a dustproof casing to prevent corrosion. An automatic oil injection system keeps the sturdy chain drive running smoothly. All these work to keep your shredder top working order.
The wide 16 inch opening accepts as many as 32 sheets at once and doesn't turn away staples, paperclips, credit cards or CDs. An Electronic Capacity Control aids in the prevention of jams by showing exact sheet capacity levels during use. The hardened steel cutting shafts tear through documents at a rapid 30 feet per minute. Tiny particles only 3/16 inch by 1-1/2 inches are left and provide a level 3 security rating to keep sensitive material safe.
Everything is housed in a high quality wooden cabinet. The wood is nice because it acts as a sponge and soaks up sound waves, giving you a quieter office. Inside is a pull-out bag frame mounted on rollers where the massive 59 gallon shred bag hangs, offering easy removal and replacement.
The cross cutting mechanism only offers a level 3 security rating. This is enough to keep personal information safe as well as general office documents. Businesses with classified material to dispose of would benefit from this same model in a higher security version.
Weighing a considerable 378 pounds, this is a heavy machine. But it sits on casters and is generally not a problem in most offices. If this is more shredder than you need, you might be prefer a smaller centralized or deskside device.
Overall, the MBM Destroyit 4005 is well suited for the shredding needs of any medium to large office. A warranty gives you peace of mind that this is a sound purchase. Use is easy and convenient with all the automated features built-in. The confetti created keeps confidential information safe. We would recommend the 4005 Cross Cut as an excellent choice for your next central office machine.
