Reviewed on 3/21/2016

I picked this up at an office liquidator's shop for next to nothing. It didn't work at first, even after I replaced the blade. I almost threw it away until I was looking it up online and found references to a cutting mat. Hmmm.. I ordered a pair and slipped it in to the only obvious spot and gave it a try. The cut paper slipped away into the trash. It worked! And worked and worked and worked! I love this device! The grids are set for all kinds of sizes and cuts, it easily cuts through multiple sheets at a time with the same precision and it's lightweight and easy to use. Changing the blade is beyond simple. I don't know how I lived without it for so long. It is a great machine, I have not seen one better.

Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at the SmartCut Commercial 18, an 18-inch rotary paper trimmer by Swingline. This heavy duty rotary trimmer is for large documents and high volume projects. Let's watch it in action and check out its features. A transparent paper guide slides papers right under the blade. A lever clamps down everything in place so it doesn't move when slicing. Just press down the green button and slide away. And the rotary trimmer can go from the right to the left or the left to the right. The metal base is not only durable and long-lasting but it's 18 inches wide, allowing for large projects. Simply clamp your project down and slide it all the way across the fence. The steel blade on the Commercial 18 can trim up to 30 sheets of 20lb paper at a time. You can see here with ten sheets, you have to make a couple passes. With 20, perhaps two passes or three. In trimming all the way up to 20 or 30 sheets, we had to work a little harder. But in the end, the machine performed wonderfully. Rotary blades are much safer when it comes to transportation and this one is a light machine, so easily moved around your office. That's it, that's the Swingline SmartCut Commercial 18. For more demos, reviews, and how tos on this product and many more, check out MyBinding.com.

Swingline 9618 SmartCut Commercial Rotary Trimmer Review

Swingline manufactures some of the most popular office products around and with such great items as the 9618 SmartCut Commercial Rotary Trimmer, it’s easy to see why. Please continue reading to find out what makes the 9618 worth your consideration.

  • Rotary trimmers aren’t exactly known for their high cutting capacity. They can usually only trim 5 to 20 sheets at a time. However, the 9618 can cut up to 30 sheets at once, which is an excellent amount. The blade is made out of durable steel which helps make the cutting capacity possible.
  • This trimmer can cut paper that’s up to 18 inches long. It’s perfect for the most popular sizes of paper (i.e. letter-sized) and you’ll also be able to trim larger documents with it, as well as photographs.
  • The 9618 comes with a manual paper clamp to ensure your documents will stay in one place when you cut them. The clamp eliminates the possibility of winding up with a botched cut which can cost you time, as well as lead to frustration.
  • This cutter has a sturdy metal base that’s large so you’ll have enough room in which to work. There is a ruler at the top of it that has both standard and metric measurements. When used in conjunction with the alignment grid, the ruler can help you measure your paper so it will be cut where needed. There’s also a transparent paper guide to help you align the paper under the cutting rail before you actually move the blade.
  • Speaking of the blade, the 9618 is pretty safe to use because the blade is enclosed in a plastic cutting head. However, you should still use caution when using this product just to be on the safe side, especially when changing the blade. (Note: the blade will wear out after a while. There are replacement blades available.)
  • The 9618 has a terrific contemporary look to it. It has gray styling with green accents and it will look great in just about any environment.
  • This trimmer comes with a 1-year warranty so you can have it fixed or replaced if anything goes wrong with it.

Recommendation: The Swingline 9618 SmartCut would be an excellent trimmer for a variety of work environments, especially offices. This device is large enough for just about any cutting job, but it’s not so large that it’s going to completely take over your workspace, unlike a large-format trimmer. The cutting capacity makes this device ideal for a variety of projects, especially if you need to quickly cut a number of sheets at once. Granted, this trimmer can’t process as many sheets as some guillotine cutters, but for everyday use, a 30-sheet capacity should be just about right. And thanks to features such as the alignment grid and transparent paper guide, you’ll be able to get an accurate cut every time you use this trimmer which will help you stay productive. Overall, the 9618 is one of the best rotary trimmers on the market. So if you need one for your cutting needs, be sure to take a look at it.
