Swingline 9612 SmartCut Commercial Rotary Trimmer Review

Swingline's paper cutters are usually user-friendly and high-quality, and that's definitely the case with the 9612 SmartCut Commercial Rotary Trimmer. Here's a look at what's great about this product (cutting capacity, durability) as well as some discussion regarding could potentially be disappointing for some users, such as its size.

What's great:

  • The 9612 can trim as many as 30 sheets of paper in one go. This is one of the best cutting capacities you'll find in a rotary trimmer and it will enable you to finish cutting your paper pretty quickly. You can also cut photographs and some cardstock with it.

  • This trimmer has a 12-inch cutting width. It's a great size if you're going to be primarily working with paper that's 8.5" x 11" (letter-sized) or smaller. Plus, it makes the trimmer easy to store even if your workspace is small.

  • If you need to do any last-minute measurements before cutting your paper, you can use the alignment grid that's printed on the base of the 9612. The grid is accompanied by both metric and standard measurement units so you can easily get the size you need. Before you begin trimming, you can secure your sheets with the manual clamp so they won't fan.

  • When you're ready to cut, you can place your materials under the transparent paper guide. This feature allows you to see what you're doing so you'll get great results.

  • The 9612 is pretty durable so you'll be able to get a lot of use out of it. The blade is made out of steel and the base is pure metal. That said, this trimmer does have some wearable parts including the blade and cutting mat. However, replacements are available for these items.

  • Finally, this device comes with a 1-year warranty so you can get it fixed or replaced if you have trouble with it.

What could be improved:

  • The 12-inch cutting length is good for everyday documents. However, if you regularly work with paper that's 8.5" x 14" or larger, you'll want to either choose a different trimmer or have a larger one nearby.

  • Some rotary trimmers have specialized trimming guides (i.e. protractors, paper dimensions) on the base but the 9612 doesn't. This isn't a deal-breaker but it would make this device easier to use if some extra guides were present.

The Swingline 9612 is a high-quality rotary trimmer that would be good for use in a multitude of environments. The 30-sheet cutting capacity makes it ideal for small and medium-sized jobs both at home and at work. This device's cutting length is good for paper that's letter-sized and smaller, but as mentioned above, it can't really be used for larger sheets. (This could be problematic in some situations.) Specialized trimming guides would have been a nice addition, but the alignment grid should be okay for everyday use. And finally, this product is really durable and there are replacement parts available for the blade and cutting mat. All together, the 9612 deserves a look. Check it out today.

Questions & Answers
Q:
I want to perforate a form approximately three inches from the bottom of the page and need a perforator blade. Is there a perforator blade for a commercial trimmer?
Asked by Foundation 7 months ago
A:
Thank you for reaching out. We do not offer a perforated blade for this item, but we do offer perforator blades on our Dial-A-Blade series, either the Plus model (9413) or the standard model (1312). If either of those are not an option for you, we also have a handheld rotary trimmer that will work with a perforator blade (8701 and 8702).

Hi, thank you for your question and for bringing this to our attention. The color is not blue, but gray and green like the photo. Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with regarding this trimmer.

Q:
I just pulled my new trimmer out of the box. I cannot get it to cut straight. The rotary blade housing is loose so the blade swings out from the straight edge about 1/8". Because of that the cut is all kinds of wavy and crooked. Can this part be tightene
Asked by artstitch 7 months ago
A:
Unfortunately, tightening the housing will not result in the blade being able to cut straight.

Q:
can this item cut 3/16" to 1/4" foam board?
Asked by MSHaley 7 months ago
A:
We recommend using your trimmer to cut 30 sheets of 20lb paper.

Q:
Apparently some people in our office feel the need to press harder then needed when cutting and they are cutting into this plastic piece along with the paper. Can a new plastic strip be purchased?
Asked by Becca 7 months ago
A:
Unfortunately, we do not sell the plastic strips under the blade. You may be able to find this at your local store or other online e-tailers that would fit the blade.

Answered by MyBinding.com 7 months ago
Q:
Is there supposed to be a piece that goes underneath the blade to make it work? Also, can you buy replacement blades and how do you replace them?
Asked by Kari 7 months ago
A:
There is a cutting mat that fits where the blade cuts – it needs to be inserted into the slot or the blade will not be able to cut the paper.

Answered by MyBinding.com 7 months ago
Q:
Can a perforating blade be used with the smartcut commercial 9618?
Asked by scoop 7 months ago
A:
No because this rotary trimmer has a specific type of replacement blade which is a straight cut blade

Answered by MyBinding.com 7 months ago
Q:
It doesn't look like the blade is going down far enough to slice the paper. is there some adjustment I can make to this trimmer by taking it apart?
Asked by Cheryllobe 7 months ago
A:
Is the cutting pad inserted in the slot. The cutting pad is the strip that the blade goes into. If this isn't missing than please return for a replacement.
