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.

    False claims

    Posted by Marty on 24th Nov 2020

    This is NOT a helical cutter. It has inserts similar to a helical but they are set in straight rows. Poor cuts around knots, even with fresh blades and 2 inches of deep snipe on every cut. OK for a weekend warrior but misrepresented as a helical.

    12.5IN. PLANER WITH HELICAL CUTTERHEAD CSA

    Posted by rob on 19th Nov 2020

    extremely happy with this planer , I have been using it for yellow cedar and I have had no issues with snipe or tear out . It is an extremely quiet planer. Set up was real easy out of the box. My only issue is that the yellow safety switch will not stay in the switch. I put a piece of 2 sided tape to hold it in place. great planer for the price

    ok for the money

    Posted by Sergei Leshchinsky on 14th Nov 2020

    First - its not true helical cutterhead as many pointed before. Not sure if that the reason for the snipes from the individual inserts, but they are well visible on soft wood (cedar) no matter how thin I'm planing. There's no speed control to do a "finish" pass either. Otherwise than the cutting quality works fine out of the box. Seems well built and assembles quick.

    Helical thickness planer

    Posted by Blair Mac Donald on 5th Nov 2020

    Easy setup ,works well . Visited store in Dartmouth to obtain brushes after reading they should be changed every 10 -15 hours .sales person was very shocked and surprised and phoned head office while I was in the store to point this error in the manual out

    Good build quality

    Posted by Leo on 28th Jul 2020

    100% pleased with this planer. It's a backup for my 18" planer, as well as handy being mobile in comparison. Best called an "offset replaceable knifes- set in a helical pattern" planer as opposed to truly helical unit, but that's just my gearhead mind speaking.

    12.5” Helical planer

    Posted by Tony on 23rd Jul 2020

    Works well, no problems setting it up. The finish is excellent. The only thing missing are rollers on the top to pass the workpiece back.

    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.
