Detailed Description

This video refers to the 40300HC planer with carbide cutters. The 40300H planer comes with HSS cutters installed, but we include a full set of 26 carbide cutters for FREE!

Steel City HSS Helical Head 13" Portable Planer with FREE Set of Carbide Inserts

Helical cutterheads run significantly quieter and provide improved overall quality of finish compared to straight-knife cutterheads. They also greatly simplify blade maintenance since a nicked cutter can easily be rotated to a fresh edge instead of having to resharpen or replace an entire knife.

With its patented segmented cutterhead design, Steel City is the first company to bring a helical-style benchtop planer to market at an affordable price.

This Steel City model 40300H portable planer comes with 26 two-sided HSS indexed cutting inserts. The cutters are arranged in straight rows in a staggered pattern around the cutterhead in a way that greatly reduces noise as well as improving chip removal compared to planer knives mounted in a conventional cutterhead. Note that the cutting edges are NOT positioned at a shear angle to the stock on this cutterhead.

This planer comes from the factory with 26 High Speed Steel cutters installed in the cutterhead PLUS we include a full set of 26 CARBIDE cutters (a $120 value) for FREE!

The Steel City 40300H planer's footprint is 12-1/2" x 20".
