The Festool HL 850 Planer allows you to create perfectly smooth surfaces as well as distressed or rough-hewn effects with a quick-change cutterhead system that enables you to swap out heads in matter of seconds. Create exotic textures and add character to your work by simply replacing the standard planer head with one of three rustic heads. Produce fine or coarse wavy textures, or a scalloped effect to mimic a hand-hewn appearance. Spiral cutter engages the material with a slicing action, similar to that of a skewed angle hand plane, generating less chatter and a smoother cut. Self-aligning blades make for quick and easy blade changes - loosen 3 screws, replace the blade, re-tighten screws and you're done -- Simple as that. Durable solid carbide spiral-cutting blade generates consistent results over a long service life. Precision-balanced machined aluminum head for smooth, vibration-free planing. Includes planer head and blade. Made in Germany.
