Cordless electric planer PPLS 10-20V

Powerful cordless hand-held plane for outstanding surface qualities in woodworking – with a particularly powerful 20V/4Ah Flexpower multi-device battery

The all-rounder for processing wooden surfaces and edges

The battery-powered electric planer PPLS 10-20V produces perfectly flat wooden surfaces and clean edges without any effort. The powerful 20 V 4.0 Ah Flexpower multi-device battery guarantees effortless and trouble-free working without any time pressure or loss of power and can also be combined and used with a variety of other Trotec tools.

Planing, chamfering, rebating, cutting with only one machine

  • Planing of wooden surfaces
  • Chamfering of wooden edges and bevels
  • Removal of material
  • Rebating for milling steps

Whether for precisely levelling workpiece edges, chamfering wooden edges, reducing the material thickness or even removing stubborn layers of paint – with the high-speed (12,000 revolutions) cordless planer PPLS 10-20V, these and other woodworking tasks can be carried out professionally and precisely with a cutting depth of max. 1.5 millimetres (adjustable by means of a rotary knob), a rebating depth of 10 millimetres and a maximum planing width of 82 millimetres.

Full equipment making work easier for do-it-yourselfers and professionals

Optimum planing results combined with fast work progress – made possible by the large cutting head with high-quality carbide blades. The blades have cutting edges on both sides and can be turned over with the supplied tool when one of them is worn. Chip ejection is possible on the left or right as desired to avoid an annoying chip congestion when machining the workpiece. A suitable adapter for connecting an external dust extraction system is already included in the scope of delivery. For precisely milled groove and rebate joints, for example in furniture or window construction, the PPLS 10-20V also has an easy-to-install rebating depth stop and rip fence enabling the precise production of mortises and tenons. Chamfering of wooden edges is just as easy. Three V-grooves of different depths are already integrated in the base plate. Bring into position, chamfer and you're done!

Simple and safe to use

The safety and protective mechanisms of the PPLS 10-20V are just as convincing as the equipment. To make sure that the compact and comparatively light battery-powered electric planer always glides over the workpiece with a secure grip, the device, which is suitable for both left- and right-handed users, is equipped with non-slip soft-grip inlays – an indispensable guarantor for precise planing and milling results in the dusty joinery, carpentry or home workshop. After the work is done, the cordless hand-held planer 20 V 4.0 Ah can put aside safely. An automatic lift-off device protects the workpiece and the blades from damage when the device is put down. The start lock incorporated in the device's handle prevents unintentional switch-on of the device.

Accessories contained in scope of delivery:

1 x Rip fence
The rip fence, which can be used optionally, is attached with a wing screw and serves as a guide for precise working at the edge of the workpiece.

1 x Rebating depth stop

It takes the battery, that comes with a three-stage battery level indication, only 1.5 h to be fully charged in the supplied charging station. The battery offers a high charging capacity of 4.0 Ah, which guarantees enduring missions with numerous Trotec electric tools.

The cordless planer PPLS 10-20V is an indispensable helper for woodworking tasks. Perfectly smooth surfaces and precisely machined edges give every workpiece the finishing touch.

Twice as long-lasting with the Flexpower multi-device battery 20 V / 4 Ah

The lithium-ion battery of the PPLS 10‑20V without self-discharge or memory effect is a genuine power pack. He who is not fully satisfied with 20 V and 2 Ah, can further benefit from the substantially increased endurance of this prime battery.

100 % more power than a battery with 2 Ah

Compared to a battery with 2 Ah the charging capacity of 4 ampere-hours enables twice the runtime. The full battery capacity is available from start to finish without any signs of weakening towards the end. Such a great deal of power and endurance also impresses in practice and you get things done more efficiently! 

Fully charged in only 90 minutes

At the push of a button the 3-stage battery level indication integrated in the housing indicates the battery status – even if the battery is not connected to the device. The charging process is completed in next to no time: By using the quick charger included in the scope of delivery a completely discharged battery will again be ready for use after 90 minutes. 

The Flexpower system is highly compatible

The Flexpower multi-device battery 20 V / 4 Ah can also be used in combination with other Trotec power tools. Besides prospective further power tools the battery can be attached e.g. to the convenient work light PWLS 10-20V, the cordless angle grinder PAGS 20-115, the cordless rotary hammer PRDS 20‑20V, the cordless tacker PTNS 10-20V, the cordless glue gun PGGS 10-20V, the cordless polisher PPOS 10-20V, the mini cordless portable circular saw PCSS 05-20V, the cordless portable circular saw PCSS 10-20V and the impact wrench PIWS 10-20V. Should you already have a Flexpower multi-device battery 20 V with 2 Ah, it can also be connected to the electric planer PPLS 10-20V. It makes for a good spare battery in any event.

Premium branded battery for constantly full power

Premium branded battery

By now, lithium-ion batteries are widely distributed, after all they come without memory effect and self-discharge. Plus these batteries can be disconnected from the charger and used right away without it affecting the battery’s lifetime. But “lithium ions” is a generic term used for batteries of various qualities and made of diverse electrode materials; including those with a perceptibly weakening performance once the battery charge decreases.

Lithium-ion batteries supplied by Trotec are high-quality premium branded NMC batteries with a high energy density and charging voltage lasting until the end without exceptions – guaranteed! Compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries the performance of our premium branded batteries does not decrease even as the discharge increases.

Consequently, you benefit from lasting maximum power even with an almost empty battery. During longer operation only the battery charge decreases, never their performance – that is the added value of Trotec’s premium branded batteries!

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

With the cordless vacuum cleaner VC 15‑20V you spare yourself the trouble of emptying the dust bag. As an extraction system for electric tools, the VC 15‑20V keeps the air and working environment clean – making you independent of free sockets and annoying extension cables. Just as many Trotec power tools, the vacuum cleaner draws its power from a lithium-ion battery (20V/2Ah) from the Flexpower multi-device battery series.

Fine dust particles that are ejected in the sanding or sawing process are sucked into the 10-litre dust collection container without any effort by the extremely manoeuvrable cordless vacuum cleaner with its practical castors. Furthermore, an integrated HEPA filter (> 89 % filter efficiency) prevents dust particles that have been sucked in from getting back into the room air and being inhaled.
