We have had several other guillotine cutters and have had issues trying to get precision cuts. The edge guide and the clamp on this machine make it easy to get perfect cuts every time and can even cut through a small stack of paper without it shifting during cutting.
MBM Kutrimmer 1071 Paper Cutter Review
A heavy-duty paper cutter is a great addition to any workplace and one of the best on the market is the MBM Kutrimmer 1071. Read on so you can discover why this cutter stands out.
The 1071 has a really amazing cutting capacity. It's capable of slicing through as many as 40 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper at once. Since it has such a great cutting capacity, this device would be perfect for large jobs.
Speaking of large jobs, this cutter can be used with big pieces of paper. It has a 28.5-inch cutting length.
The 1071's blade is made out of one of the best metals available: Solingen steel. This material makes for a very durable blade and you can even sharpen it to get more use out of it.
This cutter is safe to use because it comes with a safety shield made out of a very durable plastic called Lexan. This shield will prevent you from injuring yourself while also allowing you to keep tabs on your work. (It's transparent.)
Your paper will stay in place as you cut it because this trimmer has a clamp. There's also an adjustable backstop as well as a foldaway paper support. The paper support will come in handy when you're working with really large sheets.
Getting the right cut for your project is pretty easy because the 1071 has pre-printed cutting guides on the base. The guides will enable you to quickly trim your sheets down to some of the most popular paper sizes.
As you probably expected from the cutting length, the 1071 is a rather large device. It measures 28.5" (depth) x 18" (width) x 20.5" (height) so you'll need to have a lot of space available for it. Plus, it weighs 62 pounds so you may want to pick a permanent place for it so you can avoid moving it around.
As you may have already noticed, this product is made from high-quality materials. Even the base is made out of metal. (A lot of trimmers have wooden bases.) Since it's made out of good materials, you'll be able to get a lot of use out of it.
The 1071 is covered by a 1-year warranty. Alas, the warranty doesn't cover wearables (such as the blade) but some coverage is better than none.
All together, the MBM Kutrimmer 1071 would be a terrific choice if you're in need of a guillotine paper cutter, especially one for heavy-duty use. This trimmer can handle an incredible amount of sheets at one time, so it would be great to have around if you frequently work with large volumes (and sizes) of paper. This product is made out of terrific materials and it's safe to use thanks to the Lexan safety guard. The only real downside to this device is its considerable size, which makes it less than ideal for small work areas. However, if you can deal with the size, you'll find that the 1071 is a cutter worth checking out.
