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.

Details

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.

      Comments about 15HH 15 in. 1-Phase 3-Horsepower 230V Deluxe Planer with Byrd Shelix Cutterhead:

      This machine arrived well packaged and in good condition. Very easy assembly,less than an hour. Perfectly adjusted right out of the box. I upgraded from my old reliable Powermatic 100 that was purchased used 25 years ago. Wow! What a difference in the two! All I can say is I should have upgraded long ago. This machine is amazingly quite, leaves a very smooth surface with minimal snipe, has quick and easy adjustments, and is in my opinion a good investment. As others have mentioned, a digital gauge would be nice but even without it I am well pleased..

        Incredible machine, wish I would have bought this tool years ago. Smoothest finish you will ever find. Wished it would have come with an electronic height reader.

              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.

              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.

                Q:

                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.

                  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.
