Ooooh man. That looks like your kind of machine. You got a way to move 8000 pounds. Better yet, do they?

“Alright man, I know you want $3000 for this, but I’ll take it off your hands for free”. Confusing, right?

Does it need and do you have 3-phase power? Looks like a beast.

That’s a serious hunk of steel.

Of course it is 3 phase. You’d be hard pressed
to find a planer that size that wasn’t.

I’m laughing at the weight actually. The power
requirements are minor headache compared
to moving such a thing.

I move big machinery at work. It takes some specialized equipment that most people don’t have. That would probably include this seller. They probably had millwrights (like say, Local 1607, of which I am a Journeyman!) install it at delivery. People forget about that after it has been in the building for awhile.

Awesome...forgive my ignorance, but what is an “itch head”?

“ITCH” refers to the spiral cutter head. “ITCH” stands for “Inserted Tooth Cutter Head”

Impressive, 30” it’s a monster at 4 tons, I hope you wonldn’t have to move it much. It would take alot to upgrade from this puppy.

I just looked at your shop again. You have a very impressive shop. This planer will fit right in.

Yeah, but once it’s in your shop it would really hold it down…....from tornadoes, earthquakes, whatever.

I kind of have my eye on this dual 36” disc sander myself.
What did you say? The bottom of that chair rocks? Hold on….... grrrrrrrr….... how’s that?

It should note that with wide belt sanders being commonplace
in professional settings these days, these planers over 25”
are considered somewhat obsolete and perhaps not
worth the hassle.

A few months ago somebody on gave away
a working Buss planer and a large jointer to whoever
could take them out of where they were. He was
living 2000 miles away and didn’t have the space
anyway. That’s rare, but in general the heavier
an outdated wood machine is the less it sells for in
relation to its capacity.

Could the guy have cleaned of dust off the machine before taking picture? It would be nice to actually see the planer bed.
