Here's the skinny on thickness planers: They'll all dimension wood accurately, but the best machines leave less cleanup work for you to do afterward.
As for snipe, we could not get any of the planers to crank out snipe-free boards as they came from the factory, although the amount of snipe varied from so minimal it removed easily with light sanding, to stuff you'd just have to cut off. We reduced sniping on almost all the machines by fine-tuning (or adding optional) infeed and outfeed tables.
Heavy-Duty 2-Speed Thickness Planer with Knives and Tables has a powerful 15-Amp, 20,000 RPM motor (10,000 RPM cutter-head speed) that handles larger cuts in wider materials with ease.
Although these machines get the job done, don't mistake them for heavy-duty planers with beefy 3-hp and larger motors, which can chew through hardwoods quickly and handle deeper cuts without bogging down.
To make sure you get the right planer, we put 11 benchtop models through extensive testing to sort the smooth operators from the roughnecks.
