New Surface Planer From General Equipment

By General Equipment   


May 29, 2016 - General Equipment Company's SP8/GH9HP surface planer provides high speed, accurate surface prep, the company says, and is ideal for a wide range of job applications, including milling misaligned sidewalks and joints, removing thermo and cold plastic markings and prepping floors for new coating applications.

Powered by a 9.0-hp Honda GX270 4-stroke, the SP8/GH9HP planer is built with a unitized, welded steel plate frame, full length hexagon driveshaft and extra capacity ball bearings. It has a maximum cutting depth of 5/8 inches, a cutting width of 8 inches and a cutting proximity to a vertical wall of 3-1/4 inches. Bearings are externally greased to extend the unit’s service life. Cutting depth is adjusted using a screw-type, positive-locking depth selector, and the wheels located behind the drum make it easier to cut through high spots. Precise weight and balance enhance operator control and machine maneuverability.

General Equipment also offers electric- and pneumatic-powered surface planer models.
