W1742H Shop Fox 15" Helical Cutterhead Planer

Create uniform thickness and flatness to improve your lumber.

The W1742H Shop Fox Planer features everything you ever wanted in a 15" planer, including an affordable price.

The 15", 5-row helical cutterhead comes complete with 75 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, 3 horsepower motor powers through cuts up to 3/32" deep at full width or 1/8" deep on material up to 6" wide.

The 2-speed gearbox allows you to choose between 16 and 30 FPM for a smooth finish or high-production feed rate.

The W1742H 15" Planers are equipped with a pedestal-mounted thermal-overload safety switch, cast-iron extension wings, and a built-in mobile base.

PLEASE NOTE: For machines manufactured before March 2015, order the D4018 for replacement carbide inserts.
