This 1300-pound heavy duty cast iron planer offers rock solid rigidity and accurate planing for years to come. The hinged top allows easy access to the rollers and knives, and has a 5” dust port for easy attachment to any dust collection system. The cutterhead is a helical design with 150 four sided knife inserts – these produce a superior finish and much quieter operation compared to conventional cutterheads, and the inserts are installed without further adjustments. The anti-kickback fingers and pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutterhead for an exceptional finish. Infeed and outfeed rollers are fitted with roller bearings for long life. The sectional infeed roller and chip breaker are specially designed to allow multiple boards to be planed at the same time. The adjustable bed rollers facilitate both rough and finish planing. The solid steel outfeed roller is machined with small serrations to insure a smooth finish yet provide positive feeding. The two-speed gearbox with machined detents is quickly changed up front when switching from rough to finish work. The massive, ribbed cast iron table is ground finished and rises smoothly via the hand wheel. With a hefty 7-1 /2 horsepower motor, the 201HH Planer is perfect for the small to medium shop with continuous planing requirements.
