Home Planers


Effortless operation, greater versatility and improved finished results

Festool planers are equipped with a single spiral blade cutterhead. Because the blade is drawn across the workpiece at an angle, it cuts cleaner, producing significantly less noise and a smooth surface. The EHL 65 is a lightweight, ergonomic option perfect for trimming and assembly work where one-handed planning is more convenient. For larger planning jobs, the HL 850 provides no limit to the depth of rabbeting, or your ability to plane up to an edge, thanks to the planer head's ability to cut flush to one side. When used with a Festool dust extractor, both planers have efficient extraction that can be connected to the left or right side, and the Festool bench unit accessory easily converts your planer to a stationary bench unit. More than just great handling planers, Festool planers get the job done quieter, easier, and blemish-free.
