Why spiral cutterheads, we hear you say...
True shear cut helical spiral heads provide for a very efficient and smooth cut, requiring less horsepower, making smaller chips and operating with far less noise than other types of cutterheads.
Unlike conventional single straight knifes you do not need to replace the knife if it becomes damaged or dull. Instead, if one knife edge is damaged or needs sharpening simply turn it to another edge in seconds. You will only need to replace the inserts when four edges are dull giving you more life than speed steel knives.
How long do Spiral Cutterhead Knives last?
Expect to rotate the knives once for 8-10 blade changes on straight HSS blades. And rotate it four times before ever replacing them. So the knives will last up to 40 times longer than straight blade knives.
