You did see that it requires 3 phase power source?

5hp for a 24” planer is a little on the small size. I would rather see 7.5hp. The fact that it is 3 phase is a good thing. Much smoother and less amp draw than a single phase of the same size. The main problem is getting 3 phase if it is not already available. If you have 3ph, go for it. If not, you will be looking at either building an RPC, rotary phase converter or buying one. If you are gonna get a converter you will need to size it for larger than what you will be running. For 5hp you will need minimum of 7.5hp, 10hp would be better. DO NOT get a STATIC converter. It will de-rate the motor and put unnecessary load on the motor and it will eventually burn up.
