Say hello to Newman’s new surface planer


Newman Machine Co. introduces the latest addition to its line of finish planers, the model S270-M1 single surface planer featuring the company’s helical carbide cutterhead.

“The patented cutterhead provides a cabinet quality finished surface with fewer sharpening intervals and planes at a noise level that does not require a sound enclosure as compared to conventional planers,” says Mike Harris, Newman’s director of sales and service.

The cutterhead has a 7” diameter cutting circle and four knife rows. It is powered by a 50-hp, 3,600-rpm direct coupled electric motor.

The planer can process stock as short as 8” and features a 36” wide bed, belt feed conveyor and idle top feed rollers. The conveyor is powered by a 5-hp gear motor that produces a feed range of 20 to 120 fpm.

Model S270-M1 sells for a base price of $125,000.
