Dominion ES2 Planer/thicknesser

Dominion Surfacing and Thicknessing Planer

This machine is very similar to the Wadkin planer/thicknesser, but has two advantages over it. Firstly, the overall table length is longer at  1220mm. Secondly it operates from one electric motor as opposed to two electric motors on the Wadkin, which makes it difficult and very expensive to use in conjunction with a VFD. The Wadkin uses one motor to drive the cutter block and a second motor to control the speed. The Dominion, on the other hand, uses a gearbox to control the speed and so you only need to use one VFD when using it in conjunction with a single-phase supply.

Immaculate fully restored condition and complete with a prewired and pre-programmed VFD, ready for use on a 240 volt single-phase supply.
