Hey guys, this powermatic planer model 180 is for sale, serial number is 8180173. I am just wondering what it is worth, and let’s say if the knives needs replacing, can I get the parts for it. It has a 3 phase 5 horse power motor on it. Thanks for your help.

It weighs about 2500 lbs. I just bought a gold one. It was produced in 2001. The green, pictured, machine was produced in 1981. Mine is in almost perfect condition. I paid $1800. It’s worth more if it has the sharpener attachment.

Does anyone have any advice for me getting this off the truck when I get it home?

If I had a planer like that, I’d be planing wood that didn’t even need it just to watch that baby work.

Pay what it takes to get someone with the proper equipment to unload it for you. You will be safe, in one piece and happy the rest of your life.
