This document specifies all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4, relevant to stationary and displaceable one side thickness planing machines fitted with an integrated feed and with cutterblock fixed in position and manual loading and unloading of the work-piece, hereinafter referred to as "machines", designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard and plywood when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse.
Machines which are designed to work wood based materials may also be used for working hardened plastic materials with similar physical characteristics as wood.

a) machines set up on a bench or a table similar to a bench, which is intended to carry out work in a stationary position, capable of being lifted by one person by hand;
NOTE 1 Transportable motor-operated electric tools are dealt with in EN 61029-1:2009 together with EN 61029-2-3:2011.
b) hand held planers or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting;
NOTE 2 Hand-held motor-operated electric tools are dealt with in EN 60745-1:2009 together with EN 60745-2-14:2009.
c) thickness planing machines where the cutterblock is adjustable for depth of cut setting.
