Product Features

  • Heavy-duty 6-Amp motor provides smooth cutting in hard materials
  • 5/64-Inch depth of cut removes excess material in less time
  • 0.47-Inch maximum rabbit depth removes more material per pass
  • Uses carbide or HSS blades to provide flexibility to all blades available
  • 11.5-Inch cast aluminum shoe provides added control and better finish quality

Power and Performance

The PC60THPK’s 6 amp motor delivers 16,500 RPM of power for a variety of applications, including planing wood planks, doors and joists, as well as, chamfering or profiling edges. It also has the power to make a 5/64-inch cut in one pass max. Outfitted with two types of blades, you can choose between high-speed steel (HSS) blades or carbide blades depending on your needs. While HSS blades can be used in more aggressive situations, such as planing nail embedded wood, carbide blades can be used for finer construction, such as furniture or boat making.

The planer’s depth adjuster has 10 positive stops positioned every 1/16 of an inch up to 5/64-inch, helping you accurately gauge how much material you’re removing. To ensure level and square results, the planer’s 11-1/2-inch cast aluminum shoe is furnished with three chamfer grooves, which enable you to make the most common bevel cuts with ease. Finally, a kickstand under the aluminum shoe helps protect the blades and work surface when the unit is not in-use.

Comfort and Convenience

Positioned behind the tool and close to the work surface for control, the planer’s handle is equipped with a comfortable over molded grip to reduce any vibration. The unit also incorporates a depth dial with the same over-molded grip at the front of the tool. The PC60THPK is also equipped with replaceable motor brushes to help extend the tool’s life, as well as a replaceable belt drive system for quick servicing and a minimum of downtime. A 6-foot high grade cord provides added flexibility in cold weather.

Dust Extraction

For a clean work-site  the PC60THPK features a thick mesh filtered dust bag that captures wood debris and dust particles. A practical, dual dust extraction lever enables you to switch the exit port to the left or right side of the planer, which provides flexibility in any application. The dust extraction ports are also vacuum compatible and the unit comes with an adapter that can connect directly to most work-site vacuums.
