Standard PC-P43 Electric Desktop Paper Cutter Review
Do you want a desktop paper cutter that can process hundreds of sheet at once? If so, you need to check out the Standard PC-P43 Electric Desktop Paper Cutter. This is a high-quality device that quite possibly has everything you need. Here's some information about it - including its rating on a 1-to-10 scale - so you can determine if it's right for your particular needs.
The PC-P43 can cut up to 250 sheets of paper at a time. This is a much higher cutting capacity than you'd find in either a guillotine or rotary trimmer, so it's a great device to have around if you need to cut a lot of paper at once.
This cutter can work with paper that's up to 17 inches wide. Due to this, you'll be able to work with some of the most popular sizes of paper including legal-sized sheets (8.5" x 13").
Like many other trimmers, the PC-P43 is equipped with a backgauge. The backgauge has a handle so its position can be tweaked.
This device is very safe to use thanks to a few key features. For one, this device has a keylock to prevent unauthorized use from occurring. Second, there's are safety covers over the cutting area to ensure your hands won't come into contact with the blade. The blade won't come come down unless the front safety cover is down. Finally, this trimmer is operated via two push-button controls. Both buttons need to be pressed to start operation after the safety cover has been lowered.
If you're not quite sure where to cut, the PC-P43 will help you out because it has an illuminated cutting line. If the line isn't where you want it, you can adjust the position of the sheets to get the cut you need. Also, there's a spring-operated clamp that will hold your paper still so you don't end up with poorly cut sheets.
This trimmer has cutting knife counter that will show how many times you've cut paper. This is helpful because it will give you some idea of when to change the blade.
The PC-P43 is marketed as a desktop device thanks to its modest measurements. Its approximate dimensions are 27" (width) x 24" (height) x 15" (depth) so it will easily fit on just about any work surface. However, this is a fairly utilitarian-looking cutter, so it might not be a good choice if you want a machine that's more modern-looking.
This cutter comes with a one-year warranty so you can be sure that Standard believes in its products.
Final rating: 9. The Standard PC-P43 is a great cutter and would be a good choice for offices, schools, print shops, and more. This device has an excellent cutting capacity that will allow you to cut hundreds of sheets at once. The illuminated cutting guide is very helpful as is the cutting knife counter. This trimmer is really safe to use as well, which is always an important consideration when purchasing a cutter. Overall, this is a great trimmer, so be sure to take a look at the PC-P43.
