The new Gilbert 6 Roll Planer requires up to 50% less space than a conventional planer. The Compact Planer still utilises the successful Pull-Through technology like the other great Gilbert Planers.

The planer runs with a gap between each piece of wood, ensuring every piece of wood is dragged through independently, regardless of the space between each piece. Consequently, jams caused between 2 pieces of wood are avoided.

Other features:

  • Unique and innovative in design – a push of a button opens the machine up and re-sets it to exact position, no re-measuring of boards
  • Sturdy modular frame
  • No need for a long bridge
  • Easily maintained, all electric, CNC positioning
  • High feed speed of up to 700 MPM
  • High productivity (95% and more)
  • Rapid return on your investment
  • Improves production
  • Keeps planing visible
