What experts liked
robust, thoughtfully engeneered machine with a comperhensive feature set. large tables offer good stability.
- BestReviews
The outstanding thing about it is the spiral cutterhead design, which comes complete from the factory with carbine inserts.
- Toolsy
And for cleaner and uninterrupted work, a standard 2.5-inch and 4-inch dual-sized dust port takes care of the shavings.
- The Best Power Toolz
What experts didn't like
a considerable investment for a lesser-known brand. single speed only.

From The Manufacturer

For the more demanding professional, our 40200H-CT spiral type wood thickness planer with HSS (high speed steel) tips will fit the bill. With its 4 heavy duty guide posts and 2 heavy duty screw posts design, manual cutterhead snipe lock, enclosed internal gears for height adjustment, 8 position Repeat Cut Depth Stop and large tables, it has all the features a pro would need. And at about 90lbs, it can still be maneuvered to and around a job site. The 40200H-CT also features our newly redesigned spiral style cutterhead with 26 HSS 2-sided tips and a redesigned dust chute. Both of these new features create better chip removal and lessen the chance for tear out due to poor chip evacuation even on hardwoods and figured stock. The individual cutter tips can easily and quickly be rotated, or changed, with very little downtime keeping your project moving forward and on time saving you money. The standard 2 ½” and 4” dual sized dust port is included along with the tools necessary to change or rotate cutter tips.
