Destroyit 2604 ReviewAfter looking for some of the best office shredders in the market, we have found one model that continuously popular with office machine distributors, shredder reviews, and customers looking to purchase. This shredder is the Destroyit 2604. We wanted to find out what makes this shredder so popular, and this is what we discovered. In the line of the most powerful shredders in the market, the Destroyit 2604 positively outweighs its competition for various reasons. This level 3 security office shredder handles a sheet capacity of up to 22 papers and has a shred speed of 18 feet per minute. No other office shredder of its size can boast this claim.
It has a convenient, high-quality wooden cabinet that opens to a high-density plastic shred bin that collects the shredded material. This sturdy shred bin is considered a valuable addition, which many other shredder manufacturing companies have not yet pursued. This makes Destroyit shred bag removal much easier than other models we have tested and even offers benefits that largely triumph over the shred bags. Other shredders with bins made of delicate cardboard or simply have metal frames in which to place a flimsy shredder bags are unsubstantial and simply do not compare to Destroyit 2604 heavy-duty, plastic shredder bin. The Destroyit 2604 reviews shows that it can hold approximately 26 gallons of shred volume. The horizontal feed is often a totally overlooked feature, but we have found that it makes the material feed ten times easier than vertical feeders.
Environmentally-friendly, the Destroyit 2604 features the Energy Saving Mode (ESM), which provides a power-saving “sleep” mode that subsequently activates after one hour of inactivity. This prevents overheating, saves an incredible amount of electricity, and makes for undemanding shredding jobs. Although many shredders are offering this feature today, it is important to note that the Destroyit lineup of shredders was one of the first to launch it, so we do give them credit for spearheading this initiative. The distinguished Safety Protection System (SPS) ensures that anyone can comfortably use the Destroyit 2604 without fear or hesitation. A transparent, electronic safety shield located in the feed opening protects the individual against any harmful shredding.
The machine will stop shredding if the safety shield is ever lifted. While testing the shredder with CDs and DVDs, we found that the shield provides protection from plastic fly-back, something that can be hazardous with other shredder models we have looked at. Another safety feature is the electronic “Easy Switch” that detects whenever the cabinet door is opened or whenever the shred bag is full, in which case the shredder will cease shredding. The “Easy Switch” function offers another safety feature, acting as the emergency stop switch for any shredder malfunction. The automatic reverse and power cut-off functions are tremendously useful should you ever encounter a paper jam. The Electric Capacity Control (ECC) is an illuminated panel that averts paper jams by showing the sheet capacity levels in real-time while the machine is shredding.
The Destroyit 2604 is one of the smallest mid-size shredding machines, weighing 123 lbs, and fits perfectly into the corners of the average office spaces. The convenient swivel casters make relocating the office machine a breeze. Casters might seem like a minute detail at first, but after testing other shredder brands, we have found that they are typically the first parts to break; thus, we are happy to see that MBM is invested in quality here. Worried about reckless or uninformed employees breaking the machine? The Destroyit 2604 is amazingly resilient and will run continuously without burning out or slowing down. Thanks to the high-quality and hardened steel cutting shafts. This cross-cut shredder is capable of shredding staples, credit cards, paper clips, and CDs. MBM even provides a guaranteed Lifetime Warranty for these heavy-duty steel cutting shafts.
Operation of the Destroyit 2604 is extremely quiet, ensuring that your office will not be burdened by intolerable noise. The Destroyit 2604 is also self-maintained, thanks to the factory-installed auto oiler, which keeps the cutting shaft functioning at optimal condition by cleaning and lubricating while the machine is still in use. This is one of our favorite features as it helps eliminate dry cutting head challenges, such as jamming and increased wear. That being said, though, the oiler uses a substantial amount of oil, so make sure to have a few gallons in reserve for refills. After our the Destroyit 2604 review, we understand what makes this model so popular. It is the numerous features combined that prove that this is one of the strongest and most reliable office shredders we have reviewed. The long-lasting and efficient Destroyit 2604 cross-cut paper shredder is perfect for any office whose employees value durability, high security, and user-friendly operation.
