MBM Kutrimmer 1134 Paper Cutter Review
A guillotine paper cutter that can fit on a tabletop is a great addition to any workplace. One such device is the MBM Kutrimmer 1134. Here's a look at its strengths and weaknesses so you'll know if it's worth buying or not.
The Kutrimmer 1134 can cut up to 25 sheets of paper at once. This cutting capacity is based on 20 lb. bond paper and is really terrific for a guillotine cutter. You'll be able to cut your paper quickly and easily so you can move on to the next phase of your project.
This cutter can work with paper that's up to 13.75" long. This is perfect for letter- and legal-sized sheets, the two most commonly used sizes of paper. You can even use this device to trim photographs.
To ensure your safety, this trimmer has a Lexan fan-shaped guard attached to it. (Lexan is a type of durable plastic.) The guard will keeps your hands free of the blade so you don't get injured. Plus, this feature is translucent so you'll still be able to keep an eye on your cutting. And the blade handle is ergonomically friendly so your hands won't get tired when using this device.
The Kutrimmer 1134's blade is made out of Solingen steel, one of the best metals available. The blade isn't self-sharpening, but you can remove it so it may be sharpened by hand.
If you need to measure your sheets before cutting, this trimmer has side guides you can use as rulers. Both metric and standard measurements are used for your convenience. There are also cutting guides that have the dimensions of various paper sizes.
This would be a good tabletop trimmer because it only measures 22.5" (depth) x 13.25" (width) x 12" (height). And it weighs just 11 pounds so you can easily move it to another place if you need to.
With its 13.75-inch cutting length, the Kutrimmer 1134 can't be use to trim large sheets of paper. If you think you'll need to work with larger items, you might want to consider something like the Kutrimmer 1058 which can trim sheets up to 22.5" long.
This product's warranty could be improved. It offers only 1 year of coverage and it doesn't includes wearables.
The Kutrimmer 1134's red and gray color scheme isn't the greatest. In fact, it kind of makes this device look like a toy instead of the high-quality cutter it actually is.
The MBM Kutrimmer 1134 only has a few weaknesses, but it has a lot of strengths. This device offers a great cutting capacity, durable construction, and a safety guard so you don't get injured. It's large enough for letter- and legal-sized paper and it can easily fit on just about any surface. As for its weaknesses, a warranty is still a warranty and the cutting length should be good for most jobs. All together, the 1134 is a great guillotine cutter. Check it out today.
