Surface and panel planers are transportable stationary machines. While with portable planers the machine is brought to the material, in this case the material is brought to the machine.

In order to achieve best results, the cutter shaft should be able to rotate at

constant speed independent of load. This is accomplished by Constant-Electronic in conjunction with a universal motor. Larger surface planers or thicknessers use AC-powered rotary-current asynchronous motors. In this case it is mandatory to use automatic stock feed.
