Look no further for a great helical head planer. This planer features a 3 HP motor allowing it to easily cut 1/8” at the full 16” x 8” capacity. It features a heavy cast iron table for rigid support even with the biggest of jobs, and a four row helical cutterhead. That means you can get an ultra-smooth finish from its 72 carbide knife inserts. This shear cutting action produces lower noise than you might expect. The four-sided, indexible, carbide insert knives change easily if damaged or worn. All you need to do is loosen, rotate, and retighten.

The hinged top of this machine means easy blade access. It simply lifts and locks into position giving clear access to the cutterhead without the use of tools, saving you time. Three roller extension tables provide extra support and stability for lumber and preventing snipe. There is even two rollers on the cabinet to let you easily move lumber from the outfeed end back to the infeed end for additional passes through the planer. This planer also has adjustable feed rates ranging from 16 to 23 sq. ft. / min. This will give you the best surface planning results for multiple wood types.
