Laguna 16 Planer is best in class for many reasons. The ShearTec II Cutterhead is a 6 row system; most planers offer only 4 or less. This means the ShearTec II will last longer. 4 sided German carbide knives give a better finish, while deep gullets & thicker knives allow for better removal. Another benefit with our planers is the noise level; customers cannot believe how ultra quiet they run! Digital Readout is included, something you usually have to pay extra for with other brands. Cast iron in/out feed extensions & a built-in wheel system comes standard. Where most planers in this range offer only 15 capacity & 3 HP, the Laguna stands out by having 16 width capacity & a powerful 5 HP motor. The Laguna ShearTec II is at the cutting edge of Spiral Cutterhead technology today. Deep gullets allow chips to exit fast & keep the head clean. The inserts are made from thicker solid German carbide & set into the head on a flat surface rather than a cone design. This allows more torque to be used when tightening the inserts. All of the inserts are slightly angled to give a shear-type cut with low impact & less kick-back action. The leading edge is crowned to minimize lines appearing. Laguna ShearTec II heads are all 6 row; most competitors heads offer just 3 or 4 rows. There obviously are a host of benefits associated from the additional rows: More carbide inserts, longer life, less noise and vibration, less kick-back & smoother finish. SPECS:
