Same complaints as everyone else: doesn't cut properly even after "sharpening" the blade following instructions, and if, by some miracle, it does cut through without destroying your document, you don't get a right angle. Essentially useless. Has been used very infrequently, so it doesn't seem either of these issues could result from misuse/overuse. It's unreasonable to me that I have to replace this item after such a short timeframe.

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

My husband has been drawing as a means of therapy. He has been unable to do work, hobbies, etc. due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident 4 yrs. ago. These drawings are then matted and framed (some). He needed a paper cutter to aid in putting all of this together. Preferably, one that would be straight, square, and smooth functioning. None of those expectations have been met. I would like to return it! Thank you!

Does not cut well

By SBee

from North Delta, BC

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

Initially this trimmer would make clean cuts and would cut through many pieces of paper at once. Now it doesn't cut straight, cleanly, or more than one paper at a time. Really frustrated as this was an investment for our non-profit organization and we cannot afford very much.

Will not cut straight

By tomkat364

from Lebanon, PA

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

I bought this to cut paper for origami (which needs very precise right angles), but have not been able to cut a single straight edge. I've used a right angle to try and find the problem, and the cutting surface appears to be at an imperfect angle to the blade. Results in cuts that are about 1/16" off-square. Very unhappy with the inaccuracy...

Wish I could send it back!

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

I bought the swingline classicut Pro Series 15" Paper Trimmer in October. I wish I could return it to the store but the time has expired. It has never cut well. It rips the paper half the time instead of cutting it. The feet under the cutter are constantly coming off and today the safety mechanism that locks the blade broke off.

This product does not cut properly!

By singshek

from Wausau, WI, USA

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

I would not recommend this product to anyone. Swingline used to make the best cutters. I was sorry to see the one I had for 35 years go. The new Classic Cut paper cutter does not cut properly. If you have something that is about 4" long it will cut well. If you try to cut a piece of paper, it shreds part of the paper!

My mother bought this product several years ago, and even though there are small kinks it's still a pretty good cutter.

By Serite

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

You just have to know how to use it. You kinda have to press the blade inward to get a clean cut, but it's not a real problem for me. I have cut a lot of paper because I do origami/paper crafts occasionally and that requires tons of paper of a certain size. Also i may have a project every now and then and this is pretty helpful when i need to cut things out to put on a board. Because it's so old it does mess up sometimes, im guessing the blade isnt as good as it used to be, but I can always get another. I'll try more of your cutters soon.

It does not cut straight.

By JaneJ84

from Michigan

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

I cannot for the life of me get a straight cut from this tool. If I cut for a 7 inch wide piece the bottom of the piece will be 6 and 3/4 inches. It is totally unreliable and unusable and has not met my expectations. It now sits on the desk collecting dust.

does not cut- tears paper

By createcreatecreate

from julian ca

Comments about Swingline GTII Heavy-duty Paper Trimmer:

if you are only cutting 5 sheets or less at a time- you will be disappointed in this product. Near the end of the cut it wil fold and tear your sheets.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
