The Minimax FS 52ES is a professional grade, heavy duty, long bed jointer/planer combination machine designed to meet the needs of the most demanding environments. It features heavy cast iron tables, a 4.8 horsepower single phase motor, and an additional overturning fence.

The FS 52ES comes with a XYLENT cutterhead block with 3 series of knives designed to significantly reduce to decibel levels during operation. Totaling 84 plates of 15 x 15 x 2.5 mm. These knives are 4 self-locking and self-centering screw knives. XYLENT cutterheads are noticeably quieter. They also improve dust extraction because they produce very small chips.

The standard guard offered on the Minimax jointer/planer combination machine is a spring type guard which always covers the unused portion of the knife. Other style guards require the guard to be manually moved into place when the fence is readjusted. When processing thick wood, this does not cover the blade as completely.

For a maximum long lasting stability the cast iron thicknessing table lifts on 4 spindles with dust protected trapezoidal threads. The Minimax FS 52ES T uses a dedicated planing fence extremely rigid and smooth, thanks to a support with central round bar.

Comfortable and precise planing. The ES series adopts ergonomic solutions like the 2,200 mm jointer tables, in ribbed cast iron, that allows for the simultaneous opening towards the inside of the machine with a 90° angle. For maximum long lasting stability the cast iron thicknessing tables lift on 4 spindles with dust protected trapezoidal threads.
