Festool planers feature single-knife spiral cutterheads that sheer-cut the material for a cleaner, smoother cut that is ready to glue or finish. This design also reduces noise levels associated with planing for less user strain and greater comfort.Using an electric planer right up to the edge or on rabbets often produces unsatisfactory results, as the machine leaves a lip that has to be removed by hand—unless you have the Festool HL 850 planer. The HL 850 lets you cut flush to an adjacent surface because it can plane across the entire width of the rabbet. Because the planer head is mounted to one side, it sits flush with the opposite side of the planer housing. The retractable side guard makes planing safer, and it swings up and to the side as the rabbet depth increases. Planing up to the edge in deep rabbets is no longer a problem.

For best performance use with Festool CT 26 or CT 36 dust extractors and the 36mm hose.Includes: Parallel Guide, Rabbet Depth Guide, Solid Carbide Standard Blade, Standard Planer Head and SYS3 SystainerSpecifications:
