$36,000.00

The Newman Whintey S-290 is arguably one of the best single sided planers in existence……..and this is a newer BF version which stands for belt feed. This machine will hold tight tolerances, lay down smooth finishes at amazing speeds on both large and small pieces. Yes, this is the original paint and this is a very low hour machine. It’s easy to rate it’s condition as Excellent +. It features a 36″ width capacity with an 8″ thickness capacity. The head is a 4 knife Newman Helical Cutterhead. It’s powered by a 50 hp motor while the feed is 5 hp and controlled by a VFD allowing for easy adjustments of speeds from 20 – 130 FPM. It also features a power hoist for bed raising, sectional chip-breakers, an orbital pressure bar, idle sectional top infeed roll, a front set of anti-kick back fingers, and an Accurate Technologies Pro-Scale digital read out. The feed-mat is brand new and hasn’t even been dressed  while the drive roll has been re-coated. This was done as the original urethane roll coating was reverting, meaning that Ozone in the air was causing it to become gummy and thus making the back of the feed mat sticky. The proper solution was replacement with a factory mat and recoating of the drive roll. This fully functional machine has been fully cleaned, checked, and is ready to work from the time you receive it. This is our guarantee to both you and your company.
