POWERMATIC 209, 20in. Planer, 5HP

A great value with incredible performance and standard features not available on other models in its class, the Powermatic 209 20-Inch Planer turns out ultra-smooth surfaces quickly and consistently. And because it can create 20,000 cuts per minute, the 209 is the perfect tool for high-capacity jobs. Accurate and dependable, this planer's powerful motor, smooth feeds, and robust construction make it a true workhorse that is a must-have for every professional woodworking shop.

The 209 20-Inch Planer
At a Glance:
  • 5-HP motor operates at 5,000 RPM
  • 4-knife cutterhead makes up to 20,000 cuts/minute
  • 2 feed speeds of 24' and 31' per minute
  • Converts to 4 speeds via gear box
  • Cast-iron components for durability
  • 5-inch dust port

Locking knobs secure the table to the lead screws within the front and rear columns.

For exceptional finishes, anti-kickback fingers and a pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutterhead.
Powerful Motor and Cutterhead for Big Results
The 209 owes its vigorous performance to a five-horsepower motor. Power is transferred from the motor directly to the four-knife cutterhead at 5,000 RRM, which allows for up to 20,000 cuts per minute. This robust design not only means you'll be able to get jobs done quickly, but you'll also be able to tackle workpieces up to eight inches thick and 20 inches wide (minimum length of 6-3/4 inches).

For exceptional finishes, anti-kickback fingers and a pressure bar are located in close proximity to the cutterhead.

Smooth Infeeds and Outfeeds
The Powermatic 209 offers two feed speeds--24 and 31 feet per minute--and the option of upgrading to four speeds via the gear box and included parts.

With this planer, even heavy loads are no problem, as the 209 automatically slows the feed rollers to ensure smooth cuts. To help you return heavy boards to the infeed, there are two heavy-duty return rollers located on top of the machine.

Adjustable, Durable Tables and Convenient Dust Port
The 209's tables are made of cast iron with polished, precision-ground surfaces for durability and easy feeds. A pair of extension wings lets you handle larger workpieces, and four posts give you plenty of workpiece support.

For convenience, a five-inch dust port hooks up to your dust collection system for improved visibility while you work.
