Machine Information

  • Heavy duty cast-iron machine body and table for vibration-free running
  • Cutterheads are spiral insert type with six (6) rows of carbide inserts.  These cutterheads produce an excellent finish, run much quieter than conventional straight knife heads, and require less HP to perform the planing operation.  The inserts are an industry standard item, and have two (2) cutting edges.
