Detailed Description

Festool HL 850 E Planer Heads

Replacement heads add amazing versatility to the Festool HL 850 E Planer. In addition to the smooth surface acheived with the standard cutterhead, the HL 850 E can create a variety of distressed and rough-hewn surfaces with Festool's Rustic Heads. The heads are precisely machined from solid aluminum blocks. The indexed knife is easily change by loosing three screws. You can swap heads on the planer in seconds.

Head Types

Festool offers the standard smooth head and three rustic heads for the HL 850 E – coarse, fine & undulating. The coarse head is used to create very rough-hewn or heavily distressed surfaces. The fine head gives a less distressed look. The undulating head makes a hand-hewn look similar to what you would see on on a workpiece shaped with an adze.

If you want your distressed surface to look aged and worn, we recommend smoothing the surface with a Rotex Sander and Festool's Vlies abrasive.


Each rustic planer head comes with one HSS knife, instructions and the rustic limit stop. The rustic limit stop is extremely important. It MUST be installed on your planer when using a rustic head. It restricts the depth of cut, preventing it from damaging the bottom of the planer.

The standard smooth head comes with one carbide knife and instructions.
