I use this folding only one sheet of paper at a time so I can't comment on its performance with multiple sheets. It works very well and I'm more than satisfied with its performance. The only problem I encounter is the paper will sometimes catch in the feeder. For some reason there are indents behind the feeding slots the the corner of the paper catches in them.

I was very excited to give this product to my husband to use when sending out his quarterly newsletters to clients. He sends approximately 300 letters and I was so looking forward to lightening the folding load for him. However, the product didn't function as I'd hoped because it did not fold the letters evenly

Comments about Sparco Automatic Tabletop Folding Machine:

I used this product to fold basic letters and I loved it. After one year it stopped working and I am debating whether or not to buy another one. So if you purchase keep in mind that the machine may have a short life span.

      My main complaint is the folding process.
      In the description it says it will fold up to 5 sheets but in reality it will only fold 2 without any problems.

                      This product saves time from folding brochures by hand. I was able to do over 300 brochures in about 20 minutes!! It only jammed once and I learned I had to disassemble it to correct the problem. I would prefer it to be easier than that. But otherwise it is a great product for its cost!

                        This is a good product folds quickly and the guide helps to make sure you get a clean straight fold. The paper load is great. The only thing I don't like is it's super loud and runs a bit longer then it takes to fold the paper.

                        • Q:

                          In reading the reviews there are comments indicating that the machine will only handle up to 24# paper. In the specifications and description it indicates that machine will handle up to five 8-1/2"" x11"" sheets at one time, assuming that would be five sheets of 20# paper, that would place the load at an equivalent of 100# paper give or take a pound.

                          I am using 28# paper and they are brochures so I would only be folding one sheet at a time, would it be a safe assumption that one 28# sheet could be considered acceptable compared to five 20# sheets?

                            The Sparco Folding Machine only does C-Folds. For a machine that will do both C-folds and half-folding, try product PREP6400.

                            A:

                            According to Sparco:
                            "1.When paper is placed into the machine, it takes 3 sec to trigger the switch.
                            2.Once the switch is triggered it takes 1.5 sec. to fold paper.

                            Therefore, if one sheet is placed in the machine, the averaging folding time is approximately 780 sheets per hour."

                            This is if paper can be loaded immediately after it is finished folding.
