    Available in a variety of configurations, please select your preferred option from the dropdown. Please note: Normal click and collect services are unavailable for spiral head options as they require manual fitting. Please wait for your order pick up confirmation before collecting from store.

    If you need a machine to run all-day, every-day and have heavy-duty planing requirements, put this unit on your shopping list. It is built to last a lifetime meaning it will never, ever disappoint.

    The cabinet stand is a thick, welded steel plate designed to provide a secure base for the rest of machine, supporting the motor and absorbing the vibration inherent in planing operations. The motor is either a 3HP single-phase (15-Amp, 240V) or 3HP three-phase (415V) and runs a triple-belt pulley system to the cutterhead. 

    The cutterhead is supported by large Japanese SKF bearings for smoother, quieter operation with lower friction - improving service life and performance. The straight blade cutterhead has three blades installed - with the option of getting a tungsten carbide-knife helical spiral head fitted for improved cutting performance. Upgrade your standard cutterhead to a Sherwood TCT Helical Spiral Head! Click here for more info on Sherwood Spiral Heads available separately.
