The fastest and most effective planers in the world! But that’s not why you buy a Gilbert – it is so perfectly engineered for ease of set-up, maintenance, and precision, that speed has become a by-product and additional benefit, even at speeds of 200 mpm, a Gilbert planer can show a return on investment that is unmatched.

Gilbert have proven their successful Pull-Through technology, the very best sawmills have commissioned Gilbert to create the most efficient planer mill solutions. These planers run with a small gap between each piece of wood, ensuring every piece of wood is dragged through independently, regardless of the space. Such is the clever technology of Gilbert.

Other features:

           to exact position, no re-measuring of boards
•         Sturdy modular frame
•         No need for a long bridge
•         Easily maintained, all electric, CNC positioning
