Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

A spiral head on this 15HH Deluxe Planer provides smoother cutting and a finer finish than conventional knives. Three V-belts transfer maximum power from the 3 HP motor to the Byrd Shelix Helical cutterhead. Your workpiece will get substantial support from the precision-ground cast-iron table and two large extension wings. The 4 in. dust port angles the collection hose away from the work area. Stock return rollers atop the machine speed repetitive cuts. The serrated steel infeed and smooth steel outfeed roller allow for 1/8 in. maximum depth of cut and trouble-free operation. A 2-speed gearbox features an automatic chain tensioner. The one-piece welded steel stand has built-in lockable casters for easy movement around the shop.

Quality machine from Powermatic
Shelix cutter head gives smooth finish with very little tear out in figured wood. However it leaves an almost invisible scallop the length of the board which initially is not noticeable until after finishing. Once the user is aware of this and sands accordingly there is no problem.

So far - l would by this product again
This planer is quiet and worked acceptably right out of the crate. It appears to be a solid planer that should last through decades of shop work. Since it is new there has not been a need to rotate or replace the cutters. That will be a key issue that may make this equipment spectacular or a bust.

Powermatic 15HH, good but not great
Overall, nice planer. The cutterhead does a GREAT job and makes this planer very good...without it I wound have reated it a 2 or 3 star. The planer has sufficiant power. The Manual analog guage works poorly and the digital should be included, especially at this price. Very Very cheap ([*]) paintjob.This is my first power planer. My expectations were very high and frankly I was disappointed because of the cheap [*] assembly, paint and packing.I think Powermatic USED to be the gold standard for woodworking tools but they have SOLD out to the allmighty dollar.I have two Powermatic tools(this planer and the drill press). I doubt that I will ever buy their products again.

A Great Planer
I bought this machine to replace an old Parks 12" 3-knife cutter head. What a difference. The Powermatic machine is MUCH quieter and leaves a beautiful finish with only tiny 'ripples' that can be sanded smooth easily. Necessity for sanding has been greatly reduced. Grain tear out is virtually a thing of the past. Machine can be rolled around easily for use in small shops. I suspect that the one set of carbide 4-sided cutter inserts will last me for 10 years or more.

Yes, you'll have not regret i promise
oh gush, we have been building our cabin for 4 years now the goal is not to owe a penny when done, we buy rough cut lumber ( DRIED ) and also cut our own from the farm if it weren't for our 15" 3hp planer we would be sunk and owing the bank tons of money, I've pushed the planer to it's limits a couple of times but has never failed me, in fact am looking at the new byrd cutter head i have the 3 knife head now. keep the great work up powermatic. I would also be glade to advice anyone thinking about a planer to not think twice about a powermatic planer and other grand tools. Kevin Freeman, Crossville TN. 38572

Love it!
This is one fine planer. Considered the 20" but didn't see the need for larger capacity. The Byrd head is great! Smooth cuts and very quiet! I was using a Dewalt 735 the last 4 years and my ears would be ringing. Not with this one. Had it about a month and I'm very pleased!

Quality Product
This is one GREAT product. I have owned it for over six months now and it has impressed several of my woodworking friends!! It isn't cheap, but as they always say, "You get what you pay for". The wood exits the planer using the Byrd Shelix head so smooth it needs almost no sanding and would be ready to go straight to painting in most cases. It is a very powerful machine and has not shown any strain, even when cutting 12" Black Walnut. It also does very well on figured woods, with very little tear out. I have been extremely satisfied and would recommend this product to anyone. I only wish it had a better thickness gauge.

Great tool with few flaws
Planes so smooth you don't need to sand. So quiet you don't need hearing protection. Rollers need to allow heavy machine to turn. Adjusting the tables is almost impossible. Poor design on adjustment.

Powermatic 'nuff said
I was familiar with this machine, one of my woodworking buddies has one. I had a dewalt 735 with a Byrd SHELIX head and couldn't have been happier with the quality of cut, but it was so lacking in power that the DW735 took 7 passes to do what the Powermatic does in three. I built a rolling base to be able to steer the machine and raise it about 3 inches allowing me to plane onto my PM2000 table saw outfeed. Now how to talk my wife into the 8 inch PM jointer.

How does the PM stack up against the same options but with the brand JET they look similar why the cost difference. and yes i know they are basically the same company
Steve on Feb 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Powermatic and Jet are the both divisions of the JPW Industries.
I was told I could save a little money if the item was delivered to a location that had a forklift. Is that correct? Also I wanted to order a depth gauge with this planer but could not find where I could add it. PS I have had my 8" jointer for over 30 years and love it.
Lee on Dec 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This planner requires a lift gate to be delivered. If you can have it delivered to a location with a loading dock or a forklift this would save you the lift gate fee.
