The W1742H Shop Fox Planer is your comprehensive solution to 15" planing needs, combining top-notch features with an affordable price point.

Featuring a 15", 5-row helical cutterhead, this planer boasts 75 indexable carbide inserts, each rotatable three times for prolonged sharpness. The inserts are strategically angled, facilitating smooth shearing cuts, minimal tearout, a refined finish, and reduced operational noise.

Powered by a robust 240-volt, 3 horsepower motor, the W1742H effortlessly handles cuts up to 3/32" deep at full width or 1/8" deep on material up to 6" wide. The 2-speed gearbox provides flexibility, allowing you to choose between 16 and 30 FPM for either a polished finish or a high-production feed rate.

Equipped with safety features like a pedestal-mounted thermal-overload switch, along with cast-iron extension wings and a built-in mobile base, the W1742H 15" Planer delivers a winning combination of precision, power, and convenience.
