Double Sided Hog Planer
Info and Images

Spiral Cutter Heads
Heads are carefully ground and balanced then fitted with 4-edge (14x14x2mm) carbide knife inserts.
The inserts are staggered in helical slots with overlap layout. This produces superior surface quality, chip removal and low noise planing.
The 14mm knives can be turned three times before replacement. A chipped knife edge only requires changing one of these instead of the full 18 inches of knife surface.

The bottom head easily slides out after loosening the belt tension with the locking lever (below). This head can be set on a table for easy knife replacement. The top head is accessible from the top of the planer by removing the dust hood. This system allows long runs with minimal down time due to nicks in knives.

Belt Tension Lever
Swing away side cover allows easy access to the belt tension lever and the bottom head belts. Simply swing lever and slide belts off. Then the bottom head will slide out on the opposite side for blade replacement.
