First, I would not buy any planer without a Byrd Shellix Helical head.
Two, Unless you have monster boards, a 15" 3hp machine will do you fine.
Tree, I've been told that Griz has a segmented cutter head available but it is not the Byrd unit, the cutters are different, and may not give the same cut quality on figured wood.
I'm in process of building a new shop. I've upgraded my jointer with a Byrd head, but, given that I have a P-Max 22-44, I just can't see the neeeeed for a bigass planer.
