Introducing the G0968 16" Double-Sided Planer

Enhance operational efficiency in commercial planing activities by incorporating a robust double-sided planer made of solid cast-iron into your workshop. Increase productivity by employing a potent machine that simultaneously planes both sides of rough lumber.

Equipped with upper and lower spiral cutterheads driven by 15 HP and 10 HP motors, respectively, this outstanding machine achieves dimensional consistency when milling boards.

Changing inserts on the lower horizontal slide-out cutterhead is expedited, eliminating extended downtime for changeouts.

Digital positioning facilitates easy adjustment or alteration of board thickness, ensuring precise outcomes in each operation.

Control the variable speed, ranging from 20 to 69 feet per minute, through a digital inverter for enhanced production control and reduced wear on gears and motors.

The durable precision-ground, chrome-plated table endures extensive use, providing smooth feeding for sustained efficient operation.

Simplify maintenance with the auto lubrication and one-shot table oiler features, prolonging the machine's lifespan.

This feature-rich double-sided planer includes three steel bed rollers, two 5" dust ports, and a rear-outfeed emergency stop.

A high-production two-sided planer tailored for busy commercial woodworking shops.

Your machine comes with a comprehensive, easy to follow manual written by the Grizzly HQ documentation department right here in the USA.
