It does take a while to shave off that much lumber especially if you’re taking light passes, say 1/64 or 1/32, but that seems kinda long. When you think about it you’re probably making 36 passes through the planer to get to 3/4 so it not really that far out of the realm of reality. I dont think youre doing anything wrong the lumber is just thick. Best bet would be to let someone elses machine do the heavy lifting and plane down one side to save wear and tear.
