Festool 576249 EHL 65mm Single Handed Planer in Systainer




Weighing just 2.4 kg and with a compact design, the EHL 65 electric planer is not only the lightest and lowest one-handed planer in its class, but also the most powerful.

4 mm planing and 23 mm rebate depth and excellent surface finish thanks to the unique spiral blade with pulling cut.

With SoftGrip handle and cutting depth adjustment, single-button operation and non-slip ridges on the housing for a secure hold. This means that the planer can be guided effortlessly, whether it’s horizontally or vertically, with one or two hands, with the left hand or right hand. In short: It’s ergonomic. Fast. Precise.

The one-handed planer for professionals.


  • Unique Results
    The EHL 65 works with a pulling cut for a particularly accurate planing result. No chatter marks, no reworking. This is made possible by the spiral blade, which works at an incline and planes the wood in a way that is gentle on both the material and the tool.
  • Perfect Handling
    The planing width of 65 mm enables versatile use as an assembly plane. Weighing just 2.4 kg, it is extremely handy: Compact installation height, soft grip on the handle and cutting depth adjustment, additional grips for an even more secure hold. Further impressive details: Convenient single-button operation for switching on and off.
  • Quick Blade Changes
    The blade replacement system with automatic adjustment function eliminates the need to adjust the cutting circle diameter. Practical: The blade replacement tool is attached directly to the machine.
  • Nothing Quieter
    The EHL 65 is significantly quieter than other planers. In fact, it is so quiet that it makes less noise under load than other planers do when idling. This is an important contribution to safety while working. Yet another benefit of the special shape of the spiral blade.
  • Versatile
    23 mm rebate depth for a greater application spectrum.
  • Stepless Cutting Depth Adjustment
    The infinitely adjustable cutting depth is a valuable feature in practice. You can use the rotating handle to accurately adjust the cutting depth, while carrying out your work.
  • Flexible Dust Extraction
    The extractor hose can be connected to the left or the right according to requirements. This means you can work with suction without impairing machine use in any situation.
  • For Quick Device Changeover
    Thanks to the plug-it system, the device can be changed quickly – directly via the cable and not via the socket or extractor: One cable for all devices. And even if the cable breaks, it can be replaced quickly without any problems.
  • Protect The Workpiece and Blade
    The spring-loaded shoe keeps the blade away from the surface. The shoe folds inwards automatically when the machine is set down – even on narrow edges.
  • Orientation Aid
    The “rucksack” on the back of the plane picks up the exact width of the blade. The plane blade width is 65 mm, which is optimised for typical installation applications.
