Heavy duty, powerful, precise
• Heavy solid steel turning bar and counterbalanced body provide smooth turning and minimum chatter, even with the turning bar at maximum reach.
• The motor and planetary ring gear drive provide enough torque to remove up to 0.125 inch (3.175 mm) of metal so you can get the job done fast.
• A 3.08 Hp (2.3 kW) electric motor and a 1.22 Hp (0.91 kW) pneumatic motor is available.

• Turns shafts from 4.0 - 11.25 inches (101.6 - 285.75 mm). (This machine works within a 16.75 inch (425.5mm) diameter space around the shaft (swing diameter), and 36 inches (914.4 mm) from the end of the shaft.)
• Automatic axial feed is variable from 0.003 - 0.011 inches/rev. (0.076 - 0.279 mm/rev.) in 7 increments

Quick and easy to set up
