heavy duty paper cutter is ideal for small print shops and
organizations that need to cut small to medium volumes of paper quickly
The 700E commercial stack cutter is ideal for photo shops, schools, churches, small print shops and professional organizations.
Strengths / Features:
it is not a true ream cutter, the Martin Yale 700E cutter is capable of
easily cutting up to 375 sheets of 20lb paper at a time. This makes
this an ideal cutter for churches and businesses that need to cut large
stacks of paper for the production of flyers, brochures and sales
The Martin Yale 700E has a manually operated paper
clamp that is designed to hold documents in place during cutting. It
also has an easy to adjust paper stop to help in aligning the paper on
the cutter for precise cutting. These features are extremely helpful in
ensuring that documents are cut straight and true.
Yale 700E is an extremely sharp cutter and thus can be very dangerous
if not used properly. With this in mind, Martin Yale included a blade
latch that is designed to prevent cutting until the latch is released.
This feature requires two hands for cutting which helps to prevent
fingers from getting caught under the razor sharp blade.
700E has a long cutting handle and a heavy wooden base. These features
help to provide leverage in cutting large stacks of paper. When
combined with the extremely sharp blade used by this cutter, you can
slice through large stacks of paper like they are butter.
Weaknesses / Limitations:
Martin Yale 700E paper cutter is equipped with a twelve inch long
cutting blade. This is ideal for cutting or trimming letter sized
documents. However, the 700E cannot trim larger documents where a cut
length longer than 12" is required.
Although the Martin Yale
700E uses a blade latch to help ensure safety, it is still a dangerous
piece of equipment. Once the latch has been disengaged it is possible
to remove your hand from the latch to complete the cutting process.
This presents a potential safety issue if you are not careful. It is
important to never take security for granted when using a large paper
cutter such as this. Some organizations even place a lock on their
cutters when they are not in use to prevent children from accidentally
The clamping mechanism on the 700E paper
cutter is actually quite effective in holding pages in place during the
cutting process. The clamp should be snug, but not excessively tight on
the sheets. A snug clamp, along with a sharp blade will give you a
smooth, accurate cut.
Like any cutter, the 7000E functions
best with a sharpened blade. Some users will find a tiny bit of
movement in the stack while cutting and will try to tighten the clamp
more, when the real culprit is a dull blade. It's a good idea to have
an extra blade and always keep a sharp one on hand. The blade changing
process is a bit laborious and will take about 45 minutes.
Martin Yale 700E is an excellent high volume stack cutter. However, it
is not ideal for cutting one or two sheets of paper at a time. For
small volume trimming jobs it is best to use a guillotine style paper
cutter or a rotary trimmer.
Martin Yale 700e stack paper cutter is ideal for churches, offices and
organizations that need to cut large volumes of paper at a time.
offers a twelve inch cutting length, an excellent paper clamping system
and a paper stop to help align the pages on the cutter.
with all high capacity paper cutters, caution should be used when
operating the Martin Yale 700e. It has an extremely sharp blade that
could easily cause severe injuries if the safety mechanisms are
disabled or the cutter is operated without care.
