This heavy duty planer offers performance and value, loaded with standard features not found on other machines in its class. The powerful 5HP motor and 20" planing capacity will handle the most demanding work. The helical cutterhead provides quieter operation and finer finishing than conventional systems, and the four-sided knife inserts seat themselves without requiring a set-up gauge. The 5" dust port connects easily to any dust collector. The anti-kickback fingers and pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutterhead 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 and 31 FPM. The gearbox can be changed to 4-speed with the included gear to run lower speeds of 16 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 four steel columns giving it plenty of support for the larger workpiece. Heavy cast iron extension wings ensure a flat, smooth cut.

      What a great step up from my delta benchtop planer. No more shoving wood through the machine or having it get stuck. Clean cuts with no high-pitched squeals. I'm glad I got the 20". It's just a bit more in cost but way bigger in power and potential. I'll never have to buy another machine.

      Wonderful Cuts On Difficult Grain

      This was an upgrade from a 15 inch HH. The power and speed of pass through is a time saver. While I rarely have boards 20 inches wide I do have many glue-ups wider than 15 inches. I have nothing but good things to say about this unit.
