This exact planer is offered under several names and is a proven design that has been around for around 25 years. It has a 24″ width capacity and a generous 8″ thickness capacity. 20 hp motor on the top head, 15 hp motor on the bottom, 3 hp on the feed, and 1/2 hp motor for the raise and fall of the chrome plated bed. Dual chevron cutter-heads. A chevron is like a helical head but instead of a spiral arrangement of the cutters it has a “V” arrangement. This sends the chips and dust to the center of the cutter-head and up thru the dust chute enabling for more effecient removal of waste. This planer also features an automatic oiler. Digital read out/control for height. An extremely clean double sided planer that has been very well maintained.

  • Upper & lower chevron (like helical) cutterheads for accurate and powerful two-sided planing in one pass.
  • auto digital thickness control for quick and accurate setup.
  • The work table surface was precision ground and then electro chrome plated and polished to a smooth mirror finish. The durable wear resistance surface is easy to clean and maintain.
  • A heavy duty feed conveyor with metal spikes firmly holds stock securely to the work table and feeds positively giving a smooth finish for rough or final planning.
  • A stepless variable speed control for smooth adjustment of feed rate depending on the material hardness, depth of cut & width to provide the best finish surface and fast cutting performance.
  • The infeed conveyor is fitted with numerous pressure pins so the feeding process can be firmly stabilized. It will moderately press the stock, and then accurate planing surface can be performed to prevent jumping during processing of narrow or bent material.
  • The 4 power feed rollers are driven with a geared transmission box linked with heavy-duty drive chain and gears to provide a smooth even feeding during rough or finish planing.
  • The heavy duty rigid cast iron frame supports the work table and helps dampen vibration and ensures years of dependable service.
  • Powerful industrial motor for maximum cutting capacity.
  • All precision sealed long-life bearing for durability usage.
  • Changing the Carbide inserts on the upper cutterhead only requires removal of the upper dust chute; the top cutterhead inserts can then easily be changed.
  • The spiral insert heads design allows for fast accurate insert changes & minimum down time.
  • Setup time is minimized to set cutterhead height using the auto material thickness device.
  • The top and bottom cutterheads are precision balanced to provide consistently smooth chatter free planing regardless of the feed rate or hardness of material being planed.
  • A powerful ½ HP motor is utilized to quickly & conveniently make adjustments in thickness when setting the upper cutterhead.
