Details

The heavy-duty 209HH-1 Planer offers performance and value, and is loaded with standard features not found on other machines in its class. The powerful 5 HP motor and 20 in. planing capacity will handle the most demanding work. The 5 in. dust port connects easily to any dust collector. The Byrd Shelix Helical cutterhead is sharpened on four sides, allowing for indexing at a speed of 5,000 RPM. Anti-kickback fingers and pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutterhead for an exceptional finish. Solid cast-iron base, table and head are designed for production. A 2-speed oil bath gearbox transmits full power to feed rollers and facilitates fast speed changes at 24 and 31 FPM. The gearbox can be changed to 4-speed with the included gear to run lower speeds of 16 and 20 FPM.
Features:
  • The Byrd Shelix helical cutterhead and insert knives provide a smoother, quieter cut and a finer finish than conventional or spiral knife systems
  • 5 HP TEFC motor
  • 20 in. planing capacity
  • Fully enclosed base cabinet with integrated casters

      Comments about 209HH-1 20 in. 1-Phase 5-Horsepower 230V Planer with Byrd Shelix Cutterhead:

      I have surfaced approximately 800 board feet of hard maple so far with this machine. It is extremely quiet and easily has enough power to do the job. The inserts seem to be as sharp as they were new. It took about a third of the time that it was taking me with my other planer.
      It is extremely heavy. You will need a forklift for loading. Once removed from the pallet, it is very easy to move around with the integrated casters in the base.
      I am very pleased with this purchase. Easily the best machine in my shop.

      Comments about 209HH-1 20 in. 1-Phase 5-Horsepower 230V Planer with Byrd Shelix Cutterhead:

      It took four strong men to unpack the jointer and lift it onto the mobile stand. The Powermatic mobile base is required unless yours will be stationary. The fit and finish is excellent. The cutter head required no adjustment - or alignment of any type. It has all the power you will ever require. If I had the need I would buy a second unit.

        The planer arrived damaged from the factory. The packaging the item was shipped in offered no support to protect the machine. When I called service, I spoke with a man by the name Bobby, he was rude and disrespectful. I own many Powermatic machines, I like them all, but not this planer and certainly not their support team. No respect whatsoever for the costumer. My planer arrived on 1/20 it is now 2/4 and it sits in my shop damaged, I can't get a repairman or an exchange.

          Excellent Machine. Quiet, powerful, and easy to maintain. I definately reccomend spending the extra money on the helical cutting head. I teach high school wood shop and this machine can easily handle all of the abuse my students can throw at it.

              Only disappointing thing was that the byrd cutterhead, that cost almost $1000 extra, came badly callibrated, and I had to fiddle with the knives for like 2 hours trying to figure out which ones were out, and loosen and retighten. You'd think for that much money it would have been adjusted perfectly... There were even white out marks on some blades, like the tech was trying to figure out which knives were off, and then just gave up or something. Other than that, this planer is awesome. Super powerful, and super smooth. Love the pass back bars on the top. Having the extra width is definitely a huge benefit. The fact that it's on wheels is great as well.
