If you regularly work with heavy timbers or extra-thick dimensional lumber, you'll immediately see the usefulness of the Triton TPL180. Rather than attempting to feed a heavy workpiece through a conventional planer, you take a lightweight planer to the workpiece, saving your back and a lot of effort. It's also ideal for planing wide table tops or surfacing preassembled furniture for refinishing. With its patented, 3-blade design and 10-position depth control knob, you'll get precise material removal with minimal setup time. The front handle with soft grip is adjustable for added comfort. Ultra-wide 7'' planing width and the ability to remove up to 5/64'' in a single pass. Includes wrench, dust connector, set guide fence and three 7'' blades.


Features:
  • Powerful 1500W motor for heavy duty planing of the toughest wood surfaces
  • Power-on neon light indicates a live power connection
  • Magnesium construction for superior strength and durability without adding excessive weight
  • Non-slip rubber over-molded grip offers increased support, safety and control
  • Fully cast base ensures flatness and increases accuracy of cut
  • Low center of gravity design for stability and control
  • 3-Blade drum design for faster, smoother cuts and a superior finish
  • 180mm / 7" planing width for maximum productivity
  • 10-Position depth control dial sets the cut depth from 0-5/64''
  • 65Mn Blades are reversible for extended life
  • Adjustable bail handle for additional control and safety
  • Dust port for connection to a dust extraction system

Triton 7 inch Planer. A great option for large rough cut timbers and slabs.
I used the Triton electric planer to flatten large rough cut black walnut on one side before running it through my thickness planer.
The 7 inch blades made quick work of the high spots and twist. I used my no7 hand plane to remove the blade marks. I did not find the Triton planer to be excessively loud and the weight of the tool is a plus. The forward handle is adjustable but I found it to be comfortable out of the box. This planer has plenty of power to take full cuts but I found taking a 1/64 per pass worked best so I wouldn't waste any material. I'm sure this planer would do a great job on framing timbers or flattening table tops.
This is the first Triton product I've purchased and would be confident in trying others.

My new Favorite tool
Out of the box I planed 400 lineal feet of 5.5" wide recently pressure treated wood (wet SYP w/pressure treating metals-copper naphthenate), 3 passes at 3/64", that's 1,200 LF and it cut like new on the last pass w/mill glaze finish. Nice machine! No louder than any of my 3.25" planers, great shavings extraction port (filled 7 trash bags w/moist shavings-can't overwhelm the port, have to go slowly...), nice heft, nice calibration, tight tool, long plates, no snipe, in-plate-drop-down knife protector, cord seems fine (despite neg. reviews I found). 30 years in the trade, I can appreciate a good tool when it comes. You won't be let down by this one. Good tool.

A great alternative
Bench-top planers max out at 12" or 13". I work with rough-cut slabs that are 16"-24" or more. This provides a useful way to plane wider planks without the investment of an industrial size planer. It takes a bit of practice, but once you have the hang of it, it will make short work of any wood.

I expected a good product(based on other Triton products I own); this was much better. Well constructed and easy to use. However depth adjustment knob is a bit too tight

Its a BEAST
If you want a WIDE hand power planer, look no further. I am never tried the Makita at 2.5x the price...but this Triton did everything I could ask for. I leveled some large butcher block tops. Great ergonomics. Excellent dust collection! On par with Festool dust collection. Not easy finding port to fit, but you get used to that.
Ergonomics is superb for the weight.
I could find flaws with any tool, but at this price point its hard to nit pick this tool.
I would suggest to maker, make sure the rear kick stand senses forward motion better, as it often sticks...but I resolved that with a forward motion when I sit the rear down on the work piece. not a huge deal.
If your trying to strip a large top, and or level it, forget sanding, that comes after you plane it...
Even on the lowest bite setting, it still leaves trails, but that is to be expected.. So sand with 40 Grit on first past to rid those...
Nice to see Triton making specialty tools that often very few companies make...
I am now a Triton fan...

It works like nothing else!
I was amazed how well this works, especially for the price. As long as you have your workpiece firmly anchored down, the massive size actually helps hold it flat at the ends of the boards where there is a tendency to dip with smaller planes.

My only complaint is that the dust collection adapter that comes with it does not fit the dust port. It's too small and falls out as soon as you put it in. I had to do some modification with electrical tape to make it wedge in.

TPL180, What is the cost for additional blade sets?
Don P on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are actually now available through Rockler for only $10.99 pretty inexpensive. I think you can also take blades from the larger style terminus cutterheads and cut them to size.

Is this a 110v unit? or does it require 220v power source?
Bobby on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 110 volt unit. I needed to plane a 12”x12”x12 foot beam all 4 sides. I was very pleased with performance.
I do not have a portable or fixed base planer (i.e. DeWalt 735). Would this hand held unit be a substitute for a portable or bench unit?
David Fontaine on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: David,
This planer is a great addition to your tools, only if you work with large timbers. The planer itself is very big, and a touch heavy.
I cannot see this being your every day, go to planer unless you work on timberframing, logs, etc.
If you need a go to electric planer, get a 3 1/4" model.
Would it be possible to use a planer to cut half lap joints ?
James B on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Nope
