Description

CX125HC
Our new 12 ½" Bench top Planer with Helical Style Cutterhead features a powerful 2HP and a 6 row helical cutterhead with 24 indexable cutters giving you power and superior finish you would expect from a stationary machine. Designed to manage larger, deeper cuts in wood, the helical style cutterhead is quieter and delivers a smoother finish compared to straight knife planers which will reduce your sanding time. This unit comes equipped with a cut depth indicator that automatically measures the depth of cut for each pass you take up to 1/8" and features built in dust collection with dual ports at 2-1/2" & 4" for easy hook up to a shop vac or dust collector.

The cutterhead raises and lowers on a 4 column precision ground carriage system which drastically reduces snipe. The convenient side carry handles allow for ease of portability and blade changes on this machine are simple and super fast. Chip an insert cutter? Simply unscrew the indexable cutter and rotate to get a fresh new cutting edge. Say goodbye to cumbersome and time consuming blade changes with traditional straight knife planers.

We tested this planer directly against the popular selling DeWalt DW735 13" Planer and found this machine to superior in noise level, smoothness of cut and overall performance. This machine is designed to tackle any type wood and is a welcome addition to any size shop or worksite. This machine is backed by a full 3 year warranty and available exclusively at Busy Bee Tools.

    Excellent planer!

    Posted by Andre Chenard on 13th Jul 2020

    This helical Planer provides an excellent finish that needs little sanding to bring your project to the final stages. I upgraded from a 12.5 inch DeWalt bladed planer. Although the DeWalt tool is more robust and heavy, if you plan to use this tool in a shop, it provides a better finish and appear to be quieter. Used it on both softwood and hard woods. It woks extremely well on both.

    12.5" helical planer

    Posted by Robert noel on 10th Jul 2020

    Bought it on a whim, the price was right and i was due for a new planer anyway. I was super delighted to find all the exterior panels to be metal instead of plastic. Also the 4 corner screw-post height adjustments are rock solid. My first experience with a helical cutter: quiet and sooooo smooth of a cut. Was worth every penny. Also like the depth of cut gauge on the front edge.

    Not as advertised

    Posted by Marty Farrell on 2nd Jul 2020

    This is NOT a helical planer. It is a planer with helical-style inserts. They are arranged in a straight line, not in a helical pattern and is prone to sniping like regular bladed planers.

    Nice product

    Posted by Wayne on 2nd Jul 2020

    I have yet to put it through its paces but so far I am impressed by the workmanship, quality control check, etc for the cost. Looking forward to testing it out.

    12.5 inch planer with helical cutterhead

    Posted by Murray Long on 19th Apr 2020

    First use out of the box this planer outperformed my previous Ridgid planer in smoothness of cut, power and noise level. My first project was making a maple tabletop for a small table. The maple came out beautifully. I would highly recommend this tool for any small workshop.

    good planer

    Posted by Hector on 6th Apr 2020

    had this planer for three months now. I have run 1000 ft threw it of red pine. I ran about 50 ft of red oak and have about 300 ft of birch still to run threw it for my cabinet doors. So far the blades are still cutting well. I have run some 12" boards thew it taking off 1/16". It slows down a bit but keeps going and still does a nice job.

    Fantastic deal, good quality

    Posted by Dan on 30th Mar 2020

    Great planer so far. Haven't used it extensively, but it handles everything I feed into it and wood comes out super clean. Seems to have a very decent amount of power. The rpm only dropped a little bit when planing the entire 12.5inch capacity with a hardwood board. This planer is also surprisingly quiet. This is definitely because of the helical cutterhead, as it makes far less noise than any knife planer I've ever used. Only issue I've had was needing to adjust the folding tables to be perfectly flat, but that's the case with any portable planer you buy. Extremely happy with the purchase. Was on sale when i bought it too!

    Great deal

    Posted by Hugh on 13th Feb 2020

    Bought this at the Toronto wood show for $479. Compared it to the rigid at HD and to the king version that was also at the show. This was by the better deal. Busy bee said it's been flying off the shelf since it came in. Ended up taking it home and so far its great. It's packaged very well and you can tell it's not a cheapie. Has cut great right from the first pass and I love the depth adjustment right at the front, ive seen others that havfe it on the side, but the front is much better for visibility. Happy so far and I think I'll upgrade to the carbide cutters down the line when I need to eventually buy some.
