Description of the Destroyit 2603 /2 High Security Shredder

The DOD approved Destroyit 2603 SMC paper shredder offers the best security available: level 6/P-7. Meeting all NSA/CSS specifications, it is used by many government organizations that need top secret information destroyed. The hardened steel cutting head shreds your sensitive or classified information into tiny 1/32 x 3/16 inch particles. While the Destroyit 2603 can easily tear through paper, metals (staples, paper clips) and plastics (credit cards, CDs) will damage or break the cutting head. MBM offers a 1 year warranty on their super micro cut cutting heads. The 10 ¼” throat accommodates an assortment of paper sizes and accepts up to 11* sheets per pass. The durable gears and “twin drive system” are housed in a dust-proof housing to prevent rust. The powerful single phase motor is extremely quiet and is rated for continuous operation.

This highly secure shredder is also tremendously safe, offering the standard Safety Protection System (SPS) package. An electronically controlled clear safety shield covers the feed opening to ensure safe operation. Photo cells located within the feed opening detect paper and automatically start shredding your documents. When the last sheet is detected, the shredder will automatically cease operation. If the shred bag is full or the cabinet door is opened, the Destroyit 2603 SMC will automatically cut-off. The large “Easy Switch” multifunctional button features back-lit icons which illuminate to display operational status. You immediately know when the shred bag is full, if the cabinet is open or if there is a paper jam; in the event of any of these happening, the shredder automatically stops running. The Electronic Capacity Control (ECC) is the perfect solution for avoiding nasty paper jams. Colored lights located above the Easy Switch control indicate sheet capacity levels during the shredding process to prevent overloading. Your shredder will almost never overheat or burn out thanks to the Energy Saving Mode (ESM), which shuts down the Destroyit 2603 after one hour of inactivity.

The Destroyit 2603 /2 SMC comes with a handy package that includes the Whitaker Automatic Oiler, 1 case of shred bags and 2 gallons of #55 shred oil. The automatic oil injection maintains your shredder, keeping it in peak condition. If you need the absolute best document security, the Destroyit 2603 /2 SMC high security paper shredder will give you peace of mind.

* Please note, capacity varies with grain, size, quality & paper weight and sufficient power supply.
** Please use actual HP as a specification for determining value. Use of Peak HP is for comparison purposes only where other than Actual HP is used.

Q: Our workcenter recently purchased a Destroyit 2603 2SMC Hish Security Paper Shredder. The instructions stated "When using for the first time, Press the rocker switch "R" until the LED no longer blinks red." We keep pressing it and and will continue to l
A: I haven't actually read the instruction manual myself however what it's asking you to do is hold down the reverse button for 10-15 seconds. That will cause the oiler to prime itself and fill up all the lines with lubricant. Unless you use up 100% of your oil without refilling the tank you will probably never need to prime again.

Just received my shredder, oil, and bags. It was easy to assemble, easy to operate, and it is quiet enough for the shared office environment. I am very happy with this purchase!

NSA Approved - Satisfies NSA Requirement
January 4, 2016
Our auditor informed us that the grace period for our old security level had passed and we were now required to buy a brand new shredder that meets the new requirement. We upgraded to the 2603/2 SMC and its been our sole shredding solution for about six months now without a hiccup. The automatic oiler is nice so that I'm not spraying bottles of oil into the machine, and the meter on the side is a neat but unnecessary addition. There's a large plastic cover that goes over the cutting chamber presumably for protection so nobody puts their fingers into the chamber. But the clearance below that shield shouldn't be interpreted as its maximum - you can still stuff it with too much paper like any other shredder. Ultimately if I could do it over again I wouldn't change a thing.

Late Deivery Great Shredder

Shipping to Guam took more time than we had allocated but the shredder meets all of our expectations. It passed our last security audit and continues to be a very reliable machine for me.

I started purchasing these units when they were known as the Whitaker 2602 SMC, then they became the 2603 SMC, now they are the 2603/2 SMC. The shredder picked up a couple extra lights and indicators but overall hasn't changed. I use this for every location in the buildings I cover with the exception of our much larger spaces where I default to another unit which takes more paper.

Like the previous reviewer, I'm still waiting for a model that can take a paperclip without dying. Once someone comes out with a high security shredder like that, I would consider switching. But until then I've always been quite satisfied with this machine.

I've bought about 50 of these for various facilities. Here are my experiences:

+Great combination of price and performance.
+More durable than any other shredder we've used in the past.
+Automatic oiler makes these very low maintenance.

-Won't handle staples and paper clips, but no high security shredder does
-I wish they would make the 2603 with a slot for CD's and DVD's.
