This heavy-duty planer offers performance and value, loaded with standard features not found on other machines in its class. The powerful 5 HP motor and 20 in. planing capacity will handle the most demanding work. The helical cutter head provides quieter operation and finer finishing than conventional systems and the 4-sided knife inserts seat themselves without requiring a set-up gauge. The 5 in. dust port connects easily to any dust collector. The anti-kickback fingers and pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutter head for an exceptional finish. The solid cast iron base, table and head are designed for production. The 2-speed oil bath gearbox transmits full power to feed rollers and facilitates fast speed changes at 24 FPM and 31 FPM. The gearbox can be changed to 4-speed with the included gear to run lower speeds of 16 FPM and 20 FPM. The corrugated infeed and fine groove outfeed rollers ensure a smooth feed. The precision ground and polished cast iron table rides on 4 steel columns giving it plenty of support for the larger work piece. Heavy cast iron extension wings ensure a flat, smooth cut.

I’ve owned this machine for about a year. I build both fir nature and large scale scratch built naval ships. I can run 500 bf through this planer safely and quickly! There is almost no snip due to the wide cutters allowing staggered indeed. Combined with a quality dust collection system there is practically no dust. It is a great machine, worth the money.
