20" Planer with Built in Mobile Base and Helical Cutterhead - W1754H

Save time and effort by quickly flattening and smoothing rough lumber.

A planer can help enhance the quality of woodworking projects by producing smooth, even surfaces, making pieces easier to work with, and giving them a professional finish.

The 20", 5-row helical cutterhead comes complete with 100 indexable carbide inserts that can each be rotated three times to expose new, sharp cutting edges.

The inserts sit at a slight angle to the for smooth shearing cuts, minimized tearout, a smoother finish, and operating at lower noise levels.

A 240-volt, 5 horsepower motor powers through cuts up to 1/8" deep at a full width or 6" wide!

The 2-speed gearbox allows you to choose between 16 and 20 FPM for a smooth finish or a higher production feed rate.

With its built-in locking mobile base and pedestal-mounted switch, the W1754H is easy to move and operate.

Additional features include a 55-5/8" long precision-ground cast-iron table with the cast-iron extension wings, return rollers, adjustable bed rollers, and a magnetic switch with thermal overload protection.

Like all Shop Fox planers, the W1754H comes with a 2-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The W1754H manual was written by our U.S.-based Woodstock Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy-to-read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your sander.

The Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are also U.S.-based. Parts for the planer may be available online and shipped from the parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
