Grizzly G0453Z 15 inch 3 HP Planer with Spiral Cutterhead
The G0453Z 15″ 3 HP Planer with Spiral Cutterhead recognized ahead of the rest of the 15″ planers tested by WOOD Magazine for its combination of clean cuts and the ability to control snipe.
The 4-row spiral cutterhead with 74 German-made indexable carbide inserts cut some of the finest surface finishes money can buy.
Each insert can be rotated up to three times to expose a new sharp edge for superior finish.
Reducing the cut to the size of a single insert makes for a cleaner cut and reduces noise compared to the traditional straight knife cut.
The 3 HP motor spins the cutterhead at 4800 RPM to plane your stock up to 15″ wide by 8″ thick, cutting as deep as 1/8″ per pass.
Additionally, the G0453Z features a built-in mobile base, adjustable bed rollers, two-speed automatic board feed, and solid cast-iron extension wings.
