The strength lies in the length
The solid plan 51L planer from the premium brand FORMAT-4 impresses with its new design and above all with the new three metre planing table length. The feeding planer table alone offers 1,650 millimetres of adequate supporting surface for larger dimensioned workpieces. As an absolute highlight, the new plan 51L is the first FORMAT-4 planer that offers a tiltable planing table for concave and convex joint finishing. The space saving design of the planing fence makes it possible to position the planer directly against the workshop wall. The comfort guard is integrated into the machine chassis and can be folded away which, when coupled, with the counter design of the machine cover panel allows absolute freedom of movement when planing. The Power Drive electrical height adjustment is included as standard and offers operating comfort of the highest level. The ergonomically designed control panel is positioned at eye level.

SILENT-POWER®

SILENT-POWER®



The Silent-POWER® spiral knife cutterblock reduces the noise emissions when planing by more than a half. Specially developed tungsten carbide blades with their constant pulling cut, guarantee a tear free planing finish of every wood type. The optimised extraction hood ensures that the noticably shorter chips are effectively extracted and land considerably more compact in the dust bags. This more compact filling of the chip bags, saves you from having to frequently change the bags. Maximum reliability and highest level of planing quality - the innovative new development from Format-4 offers a planing system with knives that have a usable life up to 20 times longer when compared to a conventional HSS-blade system. Damaged blades can be exchanged individually, removed and replaced with a few turns of the hand. The advantages at a glance ...
