15" Planer with Helical Cutterhead - Craftex CX-Series
The CX15HC is equipped with a Helical Cutterhead which means it operates more like a sheer or skew cut taken with a hand plane, as the cutters are positioned at an angle to the feed rate and this shearing action provides a quieter, smoother and superior finish compared to the standard knives and spiral cutterheads.
This machine is built in the same factory as our CX15SC (15" Spiral Cutterhead Planer), and after testing both units side by side, the Helical Cutterhead provided a smoother and superior finish compared to the Spiral Version.
This heavy duty planer is built with all day production in mind and has all the features any serious woodworker would look for in a 15" planer. Some of these features include a powerful 3HP motor, five rows of helical cutters, full cast iron extension wings, integrated mobile base and overall heavy duty construction. Enjoy the power, mobility and stability of a heavy duty planer with the helical cutterhead in this 15" planer.
Like all CX-Series machines, this unit features powder coated paint and a full 3 year warranty.
