Welcome to MyBinding video. This video reviews the Martin Yale 2000SC, a strip cut shredder. It really doesn't get much simpler than the 2000SC. The blue on/off switch is really all there is. It was a little awkward at first to slide the papers underneath the blue shield but you get used to it. It does make things safer for the fingers. Also, we like the credit card, CD, and DVD slot that helps guide it right through and is able to process both. The optimal eye auto sensor seems to work really well without having to jiggle it or anything. All of it stands on lockable casters so its easily moved around the office. Shred capacity is always important for every shredder. This 2000SC was able to handle 16 sheets of 20lb paper in one shred. That was great! When we put in too many sheets, a red light appeared and a motor stopped, letting us know there was a jam. Simply reverse the motor, it pulls right out very simply, and we started again. Smaller batches processed much more quick and all the shreds fell into an 8.5 gallon removable bucket just below the shredder. It has a nice size window on the front to see just how full the basket is getting. For just under $150, the Martin Yale 2000SC is a great buy.

Martin Yale 2000 Strip-Cut Shredder Review

Martin Yale’s 2000 strip-cut paper shredder is definitely an improvement over their respectable 1000 strip-cut machine. The Martin Yale 2000 has many features that you expect to find in higher-end machines, but this machine comes at a low price (less than $200.00) so you can save money and still get a machine with top-of-the-line features. This review will outline what’s great about the Martin Yale 2000 strip-cut paper shredder, as well as look at the machine’s few limitations.

The Martin Yale 2000 is a powerful paper shredder that was designed for small office use (1 to 3 users). This machine has the ability to destroy different types of media including CD’s, DVD’s, and credit cards, in addition to paper and paper fasteners. There’s a separate slot for CD and credit card shredding, and the machine’s 9-inch throat can accept 15 sheets of paper at once so you can shred a lot of paper pretty quickly. (The shreds measure 5/32″ wide.)

Like Martin Yale’s 1000 paper shredder, the 2000 has a wastebasket that’s dust-proof and it has a window so you can see when the basket is full. The 8.5-gallon capacity wastebasket is easy to empty: just pull it out and dispose of the shreds.

The 2000 has several LED lights that alert you to the machine’s status so you will always know just what is going on with your machine, whether the machine’s overheating or if there’s a paper jam. The machine even has an optical eye that senses when there’s paper near the throat and then signals the machine to turn itself on for shredding. This is a feature typically only found in more expensive machines; lower priced machines usually have a mechanical paper sensor not an optical one. Finally, this is a slender machine that can be placed underneath or beside desks for easy access. It also has casters so you can move it around and not having to resort to any heavy lifting. (Your back will thank you for that.)

As with Martin Yale’s 1000 series of paper shredders, the 2000’s are available in both strip- and cross-cut varieties. The cross-cut machine will give you a little more document security, but it also has a smaller shredding capacity (10 sheets per pass) and it’s more expensive. So you’ll need consider how much of a factor cost is when buying your machine. Also, the 1000 doesn’t have a continuous-duty motor, so it’s not meant to be used by a lot of people for non-stop shredding. The machine will turn itself off if you shred too long continuously and you will need to wait for the machine to cool down before it will turn back on.

It’s pretty incredible that Martin Yale was able to produce a machine with so many great features at such a low price point. The optical eye feature is a great feature to have, as is the ability to destroy electronic media. The Martin Yale 2000 strip-cut paper shredder is a high-quality machine that would be perfect for offices who are on a budget but still need a shredder that can destroy just about everything.
