Power is transmitted to the cutterhead by three v-belts that turn the pulleys.
The motor is operated and protected by a true magnetic switch on the head assembly.
While the 15HH is capable of 3/16-inch-deep cuts on most stock widths, a limiter plate at the center of the cutterhead limits full-width cuts to 1/8 inch or less. This helps avoid applying excessive strain on the machine and prevents damage to the wood.
To top it off, the Byrd cutterhead is incredibly quiet. In fact, you may not realize it's cutting wood until you see the remarkable results!
Powerful Motor for Reliable Performances
The 15HH owes its robust performance to a three-horsepower (continuous duty rating), single-phase, 230-volt TEFC (totally enclosed fan-cooled) motor. This motor is mounted in the planer's base cabinet, and it is operated by a true magnetic switch located on the head assembly. For trouble-free maintenance, the motor features an easily removable, full-length belt cover.
Smooth Infeeds and Outfeeds
The 15HH features a serrated steel infeed roller and a smooth steel outfeed roller that allow for positive feeding and non-marring of the wood upon exit.
What's more, the 15HH has two material feed rates: 20 FPM used primarily for rough dimensioning and 16 FPM used primarily for smooth dimensioning. The two-speed gearbox features an automatic chain tensioner and a push/pull knob makes shifting between feed rates as easy as can be.
Durable, Adjustable, and Maneuverable
The 15-HH's tables are made of cast iron with smooth, precision-ground surfaces for durability and easy feeds. Measuring 15 inches wide by 20 inches long, the main table provides ample space for larger projects. A pair of cast-iron extension tables (15.75-inches wide by 14 inches long), means you can expand the table to 48 inches in length.
A large cast-iron handwheel positions the table quickly and easily, and four posts give you optimum stability. And built around a fully enclosed welded steel base cabinet, the 15HH features machined iron casters that ensure durability and maneuverability--a foot-operated brake lets you lock the casters into place.
Dust Hood Deflects Debris away from Your Workpiece
To help protect components and improve visibility, an all-metal dust hood diverts debris from the cutterhead. The hood terminates with a four-inch diameter port that is conveniently angled to the side, so the dust collector hose does not interfere with the exiting stock.
Dimensions and Warranty Information
The 15HH measures approximately 48.0 x 28.0 x 43.5 inches (WxHxD), weighs 502 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.

This machine came in a very timely fashion and was well crated. After easy assembly I got it set up and it is the exact planer for me. It performs very well. Read morePublished 6 months ago by tlboise

Compared to what I had before, this great machine is quieter, smoother and lot quicker. It is also easier to change the blades.Published 18 months ago by Eileen Beninga
The planer is well built, and works well.
Could not give it 5 stars because when I unpackaged it it had two cutters broken completely in half.
Everyone raves about how smooth it cuts and how quiet it is. I didn't really believe it until i saw and heard it for myself. it is truly amazing. Read morePublished on April 11, 2013 by Ken Swanson
