Default Cutter for multiple layers of cardstock

I recently purchased a Fiskars ProCision Rotary Cutter to cut through multiple layers of cardstock for some classes. Well, I'm taking it back because when I cut only 3 sheets of cardstock, the cuts are messy. Shredded on the end.

Can someone recommend a cutter that will cut multiple sheets of cardstock? I'm not talking a mega cutter, just one that will cut 3, 4,or 5 sheets of cardstock at a time?

Maybe I'm using it incorrectly, I don't know. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I love my Carl Heavy Duty Rotary Trimmer, DC210, 12" cutter. I have had it for at least 10 years and it is a real workhorse - well worth the $$.

How many pages of cardstock can you cut at a time with it? I use primarily Stampin' Up cardstock.

Thanks!

I have had Fiskars, Carl, Making Memories, and many more over the years. My absolute favorite is the Cutterpillar. I have the Pro and the Crop. I had the Pro first then got the Crop. If I could only choose one, the Crop would suit my needs just fine. I have never had it shred the edges when doing 3-4 sheets of cardstock. Works great for me.

I have the Fiskars Pro cutter as well. I can only get it to cut about 3 sheets of card stock and it only like to cut nice when I go in one direction.

The Carl cutter is beautiful for cutting large quantities.

Thanks, everyone, for your opinion. I'll check in to the Carl cutter.

I have a Zutter Kutter that I bought to cut bookboard and chipboard for my mini books, and I love it. It will also cut cleanly through stacks of card stock. It works a little bit differently than most other cutters so you have to look it up online and see what you think. I got mine for $99 but I can't remember where right now!

Well, I finally jumped the shark and went with the Carl Cutter that Claudia suggested. I'm so glad I did. It cuts 5 sheets of 80# CS without missing a beat. The cuts are clean and the magnetic bar holds the paper so steady. Thank you all for your suggestions and I highly recommend the Carl Cutter!

I use my Xacto guillotine cutter when I cut multiple layers of cardstock. I don't use it every time I cut CS but when I have a big job that's the one I choose. It wasn't expensive either.
