As a result, one person can safely operate this 20" planer efficiently. Moreover, it's 909lb mass is a bonus when planing long, heavy boards.

Efficient dust collection of the Grizzly G1033X Planer

Being a helical cutterhead, your Grizzly G1033X 20 5 hp helical cutterhead planer won't block up your dust collector. That's because helical cutterheads create tiny wood shavings making them easier to remove.

The large 5" dust port is designed for efficient sawdust removal. That way, it's much easier for your dust collector to do its job. As a result, you get to enjoy better air quality and a safer environment.

A 20" planer built for efficiency and safety

For safety, your planer comes with a pedestal mounted, magnetic switch for overload and power failure protection. Furthermore, a 4-column support with table locks, will ensure thickness is the controlled with every cut you'll ever make. Additionally, anti-kickback fingers mean, boards cannot kick back towards you once engaged with the cutterhead and rollers.

Intuitive features designed for simplicity

Enjoy constant speed adjustable bed rollers, with a two-speed gearbox so you can choose between 16 or 28 FPM (feet per minute) feed rates.

The 5 HP motor efficiently powers the cutterhead through a triple v-belt design, for a smooth power transfer.
