Wadkin PAR Mk I Four Sided Planer

The Wadkin Bursgreen PAR 4-Sided Planer-Sizer is an inexpensive machine that revolutionises the production of accurate planed-all-round timber. A machine that straightens, dresses square and produces a superb surface finish on any size timber from 10 x 10 mm up to 300 x 100 mm with virtually no setting - a unique capability for 4-sided planers.

The PAR outmodes planer/ thicknessers and supplants the more expensive planer moulder with impressive performance and superb value for money.


PAR Mk1 12" x 4" - 305 x 100 mm (12" x 4") 4-SIDE STRAIGHTENING - Planes four sides of timber in two operations.  The timber is first surfaced and edged on a 1.5 metre infeed table and then fed back in the reverse direction to plane the other two sides.  Two feed speeds 4.6 and 9.1 m/min (15 and 30 fpm).  Two motors 7.5 and 5.5 kW (10 and 7.5 HP)  (3 phase)

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down from the cutting edge to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
