The new 20" planer fills the gap between the popular 4 post 16" and 20" planers and the really heavy duty planers. The advantage to this planer over the 4 post planers is the way the bed is secured to the frame with a Gib System. With 5-1/2" of cast Gib travels on the outer machine frame giving the bed more stability than a traditional 4 post machine. It allows the bed to become one with the frame when in its locked position rather than just relying on the 4 post to keep the bed steady during operation.
