GBC Shredmaster GLX1942 JamStopper Cross Cut Paper Shredder Review
Centralized office shredders are seen in many businesses nowadays. But how often have you waited in line to shred, only to find a jam or the machine cooling off? Those days are over with the GBC Shredmaster GLX1942 JamStopper Cross Cut Paper Shredder. Outfitted with automatic features for simple operation, this device also works to prevent jams and allows continuous all day use. Keep reading for more details.
Automatic features make this shredder easy to use. The on/off senses paper in the feed and begins shredding when needed. Once everything is through, the blades automatically shut off. Two minutes of no use will trigger the motor to power down to a sleep mode to conserve energy. During peak use, the motor is built to run continuously without needing a cool down.
JamStopper technology aids in the prevention of paper jams. Overfed paper in the feed causes the motor to turn off and the throat to glow red. Simply remove excess items until the light turns green, then continue shredding as before. If a jam happens, the automatic reverse spits out clogged paper to clear the blades.
A wide 16 inch paper entry accepts up to 19 sheets of oversized documents and cluttered stacks. This can included stapled and paperclipped items, credit cards, CDs, and DVDs. Materials are digested as fast as 42 feet per minute, an excellent rate for a cross cutting device. The pieces that remain are only 5/32" x 1-1/2" and earn a level three security rating. Generic office shredding as well as confidential business and personal information stays safe at this level.
The remnants rain down into a large 42 gallon waste bin. The container is located in a pull-out drawer for easier removal and replacement of the shred bags.
GBC offers one of the best warranties in the business. This specific model carries a two year warranty, which includes parts, labor, and even on-site service. The blades themselves are covered by a lifetime warranty.
Weighing in at 118 pounds, this is one heavy piece of machinery. Even so, there are casters on the bottom for added mobility, allowing the device to be rolled to different locations. We think that most users won't find this to be much of a problem.
The small particles only rate a level three security. As stated, most confidential material stays safe and secure. But offices requiring the destruction of high risk data should use a higher security device, such as the GLHS930.
One feature lacking is different waste bins for paper and plastic waste, which would facilitate paper recycling. While this would be a nice benefit, many users won't notice. If this is important to you, we suggest the Fellowes MS-450CS.
For high volume usage in a multi-user environment, the GLX1942 is a great system. It offers generous capacities combined with easy to use features for a convenient and efficient shredder. Your confidential material is quickly torn up in the cross cutting blades, leaving only tiny particles. And with one of the best warranties in the business, you can be sure you're getting a quality machine. We think the GBC Shredmaster GLX1942 is an excellent choice for your next departmental shredder.
