GBC ShredMaster 2260X Cross-Cut Paper Shredder Review
Although General Binding Corporation (GBC) is primarily known for their binding machines, they also make some great paper shredders. One example of this is the ShredMaster 2260X cross-cut shredder. This machine has a lot of advanced features and is a good pick for busy offices that need a paper shredder with a good level of security. Keep reading to find out more about this great paper shredder and find out what it can do for you.
The GBC ShredMaster 2260X shredder is perfect for heavy-duty use either by an individual or amongst several colleagues in an office setting. This shredder can shred 10 sheets of paper per pass and it uses a cross-cut pattern that gives you a medium level of security, so it’s good for destroying personal information. (The shreds the machine produces measure 5/32″ x 1 3/8″.) The 2260X can handle paper clips and staples, plus it can destroy credit cards and DVD’s/CD’s. There’s a separate slot for the discs and the throat that the paper is fed into measures 9.25 inches so it’s great to shredding both letter- and legal-sized paper.
The shredder has two waste chambers to keep the paper and media waste separate to allow for easy recycling. The paper bin has a 13-gallon capacity so you won’t have to empty it very often, which will save you time. The machine also has a continuous duty motor so you can shred non-stop without needing to worry about the motor overheating or going into a thermal protection mode. Many other comparable shredders do not offer continuous duty motors and require a break after a certain number of minutes shredding.
The 2260X has some other great features. It has a patented SmartShred multi-function control panel that allows you to see if there are any problems with the machine, such as a full wastebasket, a paper jam, or if the unit is overloaded. The shredder is even equipped with castors so you can move it around easily. Finally, the shredder has an auto stop feature as well as an anti-jam mode which will reduce the likelihood if you experiencing a paper jam.
For the most part, the 2260X is a great paper shredder, but it does have a few quirks. This is a rather big machine so it’s not really a good choice if you want a shredder that can be stored under a desk. Also, it would have been nice if GBC had given the machine a higher shredding capacity. Ten sheets isn’t a whole lot, especially since this shredder was designed for continuous use.
All in all, the GBC ShredMaster 2260X cross-cut paper shredder is a pretty good machine for the money. (It retails for approximately $500.00.) Despite it’s rather low shredding capacity, this machine would be a good choice for individuals or companies that need a reliable, continuous-duty shredder for destroying both paper and electronic media such as DVD’s. Having the capability to destroy media is a great feature to have in a paper shredder, and it’s great that GBC gave this shredder two waste chambers to keep the different types of waste separate. Overall, this is a good paper shredder that offers a decent amount of security. People who need a continuous-duty, cross-cut paper shredder should definitely give the 2260X a look.
