    Opinion Request on planner

    John, I have the 735 and it is a good planer but I have only used it sparingly over the last 5 years. What I do know is that I recently had a problem with it making a funny noise, I turned it off and it would not start. I checked to see if the switch or reset breaker we’re getting power and they...

    Hydraulic Lift Table Troubleshooting

    I think given the one way check vale’s you have one that is hanging up ie not closing complete. This allows oil to by pass. Not sure which one to check first but taking one at a time out and cleaning the check and ball will be in order

    Planer Rollers?

    Dave You could be right but on my 735 I found that when the knives are dull the roller slipped. Once I put in new sharp knives it was like a new machine. Just my experience.
