There is no CEE-plug in the delivery of a 400V machine.
All 400V machines

Most 400V machines are delivered without a plug, because these machines have to be connected by the user itself in an electric clockwise rotating field during commissioning.

A suitable 16A or 32A CEE plug also can be acquired as an optional accessory.
(order number: 10003398)

What to do if the machine is running but has no power? Machine switches off or overheats?
All 400V machines

Please check the electrical connection and the supply line of your machine (also a possibly used extension cable).

400V machines always must be connected with 3 phases and an earthing.
With 4-wire wiring, the neutral conductor is omitted, with 5-wire wiring, a neutral conductor must also be connected!

400V motors running only on 2 phases become very hot quickly and thus trigger the overload protection or break.

Please also check if possibly present drive belt is sufficiently tensioned.


Commissioning of a 400v machine
All 400V machines

400V machines always must be connected with 3 phases and one grounding.
With 4-wire wiring, the neutral conductor is omitted, with 5-wire wiring, a neutral conductor must also be connected (please also note this for any extra used extension cables)!

400V motors running only on 2 phases get hot very quickly and thus trigger the overload protection or break.

FI, automatic circuit breaker, automatic circuit breaker drops out when the machine is switched on?
All 230V machines

Please check if you are sufficiently fused for the machine used. 230V machines with a high motor power or high starting current require a 16 amp fuse with class C tripping characteristic "slow blow".

If you are not equipped with a C-16 fuse, please contact an electrician. Work in the distribution box may only be carried out by a specialist.

Machine turns in the wrong direction
All 400V machines

Please check the electrical connection (plug + supply cable) and check if you generate a clockwise rotating field with the connected phases. If not, then the phase assignment does not match your mains / house wiring and must be changed / adapted on the machine. To do this, simply change 2 phases (L1/L2 or L1/L3).

What is S1 or S6? Why is the performance data different?
All 230V/400V machines

These are the rated operating modes of electric motors. A rated operating mode is a basic description of the load on an electrical machine. The nominal operating modes are defined in the international standard IEC 60034-1, which corresponds to the European standard EN 60034-1 and various national standards.

Since it would be uneconomical to design all machines for every conceivably difficult task, nominal operating modes have been defined in order to be able to clearly identify both a suitability for difficult conditions and a restriction to particularly light tasks.
S1 = continuous operation with constant load, S6 = periodic operation with load and speed changes (cooling phases).

Please note that these specifications always refer to one and the same motor and that these machines are not offered with different motors.

My 230V machine is no longer working, fuse fails?
All 230V machines

Please check the carbon brushes from the motor of your machine. These are wear parts which must be replaced sooner or later depending on the operating hours. If you have a machine with an induction motor, please contact our Holzmann customer service. (

Correct tension of a belt.

Belts must be tensioned differently depending on their condition (flat belts, V-belts, toothed belts, etc.).

However, the following rule applies to most belts:

The drive belt may move when the tension is correct and the lateral pressure is 2 kg. Let the belt compress approx. 2mm.

If you have any questions about belt tension, please contact the Holzmann customer service (after-sales service or workshop)

Machine has no switch for emergency stop?
All 230V/400V machines

Please note that many smaller machines do not have a separate switch for emergency stop, as this is only required for a certain size.

Yellow emergency-stop-caps are prohibited by the Machinery Directive 2006/42/eg and have not been installed for several years. The legislation argues here with examples of jamming due to the cover cap.

In all small machines where the on/off switch is easily accessible, the emergency stop is usually not used at all.


Is there a power difference between 400V and 230V machines?
General - all machines

ATTENTION: Work on electrical systems may only be carried out by a qualified electrician. The following explanation is intended as a simple illustration for laypersons.

We frequently receive enquiries about the differences between 400 V and 230 V machines. In general, it can be stated that there is usually no significant difference in performance between a 400V (3-phase three-phase current) and 230V (single-phase) operated machine if the motor power remains the same. Depending on which starting and operating capacitors are installed, the differences in terms of power/torque are only minimal.

For the majority of machines that are offered in both voltage types, it is more a question of personal preference or the available connection options / sockets.

In 230V operated machines, the (in most cases identical asynchronous) motor is usually operated via a capacitor in a Steinmetz circuit.
The power is supplied via a 3-pole 230V cable (L, N, PE) in order to be able to operate the motor with the same wattage (power P), the current I (amperes) is increased.

For a voltage of 400V, a 5 (or 4) pole power supply cable must be used (L1, L2, L3, N, PE). The drawn current I is "divided" between 3 phases (L1, L2, L3) - all 3 coils of the motor are each supplied with one phase - this usually results in a slightly higher torque (especially in the lower speed ranges / start-up).

For detailed questions, please contact Holzmann customer service.

The slave machine (exhaust system) does not start, although the master machine is switched.

Please check the on-off switch of the slave machine (extraction system). If this is a switch with a zero-voltage release (undervoltage release, magnetic switch), this must be bridged or replaced by a mechanical switch (e.g. toggle switch).

The ALA1 only releases the current and can only function if the slave machine is not switched separately.

Boards are not pulled in properly when thicknessing planing.

Check if there is enough lubricant on the thicknesser table. The boards are not pulled in without lubricant.  If enough lubricant is used and the boards are still not drawn in, check the pressure of the finfeed rollers. The pressure of the feed roller (mostly corrugated) and the extraction roller (mostly rubberized) can be adjusted by adjusting screws from above (most Allen screws). 

Bad planing result / planing image

Planing knives must be sharpened and correctly adjusted. The planing knives must all protrude equally from the planing shaft. Lubricant must be applied to the surfaces.  The finfeed rate must be selected to match the chip removal. The chip removal must be selected to match the processed wood. In the case of very soft woods, the pressure of the finfeed rollers should also be checked.

Can a component not be assigned, or can something be left over? U-shaped or red elongated component?

All planing machines are supplied with a free planing knife setting gauge as standard, but in most cases this is not mentioned in the instructions. This is a U-shaped, longitudinally bent component.

Machine does not start, or runs only as long as you keep the green button pressed while the switch.

Please check the safety devices of the machine. There are 2 keys (1-2 according to the exploded view) on the extraction hood which must be pressed in completely - a "click noise" must be heard when actuating. All other microswitches must be free of wood dust and operated (dressing table, extraction hood).

Planing machines - Machine does not start, or only runs as long as the switch is pressed.
Planing machine

Please check the safety devices of the machine.
All planing machines have micro switches fitted to the tables or the extraction hood which must engage when the tables / extraction hood are closed.

HOB305PRO = Safety switches, which function as break contacts (are deactivated by closing the table/exhaust hood to close the circuit)

HOB260ECO = safety switches, which function as normally open contacts (are activated by closing the table/exhaust hood to close the circuit


Please also check whether the bolts which actuate the microswitches are also free of dust / chips.

When closing the tables / suction hood a "click noise" must be heard.

You have a 400V machine and the engine gets hot or shuts off after a short time?

Please check the connection of the machine. There must be 3 phases and grounding connected -  there is no neutral conductor on this machine! (the light blue cable is one phase).

tables do not run parallel / in alignment with each other

The dressing tables should be preset at the factory to align with each other. If this is not the case, the tables can be adjusted using the hinges or conical bolts. You are welcome to request step-by-step instructions from Holzmann Customer Service (

Can shank cutters/routers be used with different intakes?

A 12mm collet chuck is supplied as standard. You can buy optional 10mm, 8mm and 6mm collets for 19,90 € incl. VAT. Order-Number: FS160LSPZ-12/10/8/6 

Can attachments such stops are ordered in different lengths?
table and panel saws

No! The company Holzmann Maschinen Holzmann Maschinen can only offer stops, sliding tables and all types of attachments as original components in the standard dimensions.

The machine loses a lot of power
table and panel saws

Please check the belt tension. Tension the drive belt after a few hours of operation.

Does the table/panel saw have to be assembled and adjusted?
table and panel saws

Yes, all circular saws are supplied in several packages. The machine must be assembled, adjusted and commissioned independently.

What do you have to adjust with circular saws?
table and panel saws

The main casting table should be preset at the factory for each circular saw - otherwise it must be set so that the T-slots are parallel to the saw blade. The sizing disk carriage (if present) must be set exactly parallel to the table or saw blade. The distance between the sliding carriage and the cast iron table must remain the same over the entire length. All stops must also be mounted at the correct angle to the saw blade.

Extraction system has no power?
dust collectors

If you have a 400V machine, first check the direction of rotation. The direction of rotation can be corrected by reversing the polarity (phase change). Please check whether the suction hose or the safety grille prescribed by CE on the fan housing is blocked.  Extraction systems with particularly high output must not be reduced too much. These units are designed to suck a very large amount of air through a thick hose with a relatively low negative pressure. If the reduction is too strong, e.g. 100mm to 40mm, the suction power collapses and is then no longer sufficient to operate smaller devices dust-free. However, one can help oneself with a second connection through which external air is sucked in.

Is it possible to connect his hand-held power tools to a suction system using a thin hose?
dust collectors

Unfortunately this does not work. These units are designed to suck a very large amount of air through a thick hose at a relatively low vacuum. If the hose diameter is reduced too much, for example from 100 mm to 27 mm, the suction power collapses. It is then no longer sufficient to operate hand circular saws, routers or grinding machines dust-free.

Can wood dust be extracted?
dust collectors

Only with an appropriate fine dust filter e.g. ABSFF1 or ABSFF2. These filter particles from 1μm, which would correspond to filter class M5.

There is no dust class certificate for this. Our extraction systems & filters are not certified with regard to the filter class.

Are you able to suck in other materials such as e.g. PVC or metals?
dust collectors

The company Holzmann Maschinen GmbH grants the function only for wood chips or wood dust. If other materials such as PVC are sucked off, Holzmann Maschinen GmbH cannot assume any warranty. For any kind of metal we recommend the metal extraction system MABS750.

Which filter class correspond to the extraction systems?
dust collectors

All extraction systems from Holzmann Maschinen GmbH are not certified with regard to filter classes and are therefore not subdivided into filter classes. Our extraction systems are designed for the extraction of wood chips and can be equipped with a fine dust filter (ABSFF1, ABSFF2) for fine dust.  There is a separate FAQ regarding the permissible use.

May the extraction systems be used commercially?
dust collectors

Companies which are under a trade supervision are not allowed to use these extraction systems in closed rooms. Unclassified extraction systems must be located in open spaces and can be connected to the machines by means of a pipe (hose / pipe).

Is it possible to use the router table also for other non Holzmann routers?

YES! The supplied template can be adapted for each machine or the drill holes for the machine must be drilled into the template.

How to mount the router correctly?

The router is screwed to the supplied black/yellow/red template. The drill holes must be drilled by yourself.  As standard, no screws are supplied for mounting, these must be selected according to the brand and ordered externally.

TK305: Machine cannot be used as a circular table saw / conversion from KAP to circular table saw does not work.

Please make sure that the table is in the lowest position and insert the black lower saw blade guard correctly.

This saw blade guard actuates a safety bolt, which then releases the lock.

Under "Picture 3" you can download a step-by-step instruction for the use as a mitre saw or table saw.

Suction hoses - suitability and properties
Suction hoses

All suction hoses are suitable for the suction and transport of abrasive granular media, especially for the wood processing industry.

Furthermore, all suction hoses are flame-retardant according to DIN4102 B1 and permanent antistatic (R<1E10 Ohm), discharge capacity according to BGI739-2 when the spiral is grounded.

torque flange nut - FKS400VF / FKS315VFN / FKS305VF
panel saw's - FKS series

The flange nut of the saw shaft must be tightened to a torque of 98 Newton metres.

The user must ensure in the course of the work preparation that the flange nut has been tightened with the appropriate torque and that a permissible saw blade is used with regard to condition, size, permissible speed, etc.

Insufficiently tightened flange nuts can loosen due to the strong braking effect of the motor brake and can damage the saw shaft.

This information applies to the following machine types:
FKS400VF3200, FKS315VFN3200, FKS315V1200, FKS320V3200, FKS305VF1600/2600/3200

torque planer shaft screws
planer screws torque

Please check regularly the tightening torque of the planer blade screws on your planer.

During the preparation of the work, the user must make sure that all the screws of the planer knives are tightened to the specified torque and that the knives are securely seated in the cutter head.

Depending on the size, the following tightening torques apply:

M6 = 5 Newton metres
M10 = 12 Newton metres

sawband for head band saws - correct use
head band saw - sawband

Please pay attention to the correct use of the saw bands for head bandsaws.

Depending on the type of wood you want to saw, you must use a suitable saw band.

Holzmann offers you 2 different saw bands for wet and dry wood or saw bands for universal use.

BSB350B25_T22 sawband 2750x25x0,9mm T22mm f. wet wood

Please note that the use of unsuitable saw blades can lead to wavy or crooked cuts.

crooked / wavy cut - head bandsaw
head band saw - wavy / crooked cuts

A wavy or oblique cut on a head band saw indicates an incorrectly used saw band or an adjustment error. Please check the following points:

  • Wet wood can only be cut with a thick saw blade with coarse toothing (min. 32mm T22.)
  • Saw blades must be aligned between the guide rollers and properly tensioned (approx. 1-2mm clearance)
  • Saw blade guides must always be positioned as close as possible to the workpiece.

Please make sure that you use a saw blade designed for your application.

Holzmann can offer you the following saw bands for this purpose:

BSB550B30 saw blade 3200x30x0,8mm T9mm for dry wood

HOB305PRO - table adjustment - transport lock
HOB305PRO - transport lock

Please remove the allen screw inside the handle during commissioning. 
This Allen screw is used as a transport lock and must be removed completely to allow full adjustment of the planer table.

Cutters cannot be clamped, collets do not fit?
ZFS600 , OBF1200

The milling cutters included in the accessories have a shank of 6.3mm which corresponds exactly to a ¼ inch collet.

A standard 1/4" router collet can be purchased from your local DYI store or online.

informations sanding disc (delivery content, accessories)
disc sanding machines

All disc sanding machines are equipped with adhesive sanding discs as standard.
Conversion kits for velcro backing pads are optionally available as accessories.

Sanding discs can be designed as adhesive and velcro sanding discs.

When changing the sanding pads

                - Pull off old grinding disc

                - Disc with brake-cleaner (or something similar) so that it is free of residues.

                - Wet the entire surface of the grinding disc with spray adhesive and

                - these stick this on the disc of the machine of the machine.

Conversion kit for velcro pads available in the appropriate dimensions.

To do this, also remove the grinding disc glued on at the factory, clean the disc, moisten the Velcro attachment with spray adhesive and glue it on the disc. Now special velcro sanding discs can be used (felt on back). This is recommended if grinding discs have to be changed frequently.

Machine does not start or only runs when the switch is pressed.
SB4115N SB3116RMN SB 162VN SB4116HM SB4116HN SB3116RHN SB2516H SB4132LR SB4132SM

Please check the security devices of the machine. The belt cover must be completely closed - the plate bracket must actuate the microswitch. The spindle guard must be correctly mounted and folded in. A "click noise" must be heard when folding in.

What if the concentricity exceeds the tolerance value?
SB4115N SB3116RMN SB 162VN SB4116HM SB4116HN SB3116RHN SB2516H SB4132LR SB4132SM

Please check which parts cause the unbalance. In most cases the unbalance is caused by the drill chuck or from the mandrel/taper which have nothing to do with the machine.

Which gear oil is used?
Drehmaschinen Fräsmaschinen

For all turning and milling machines from our product range, a viscous oil with the viscosity ISO220 (e.g. GOE5L) is to be used. Colloquially we talk about fluid grease or gear glue - because these oils are very viscous. Please do not use the supplied inlet oil during operation - it is too thin!

Why can't the pre-filled oil be used on our lathes and milling machines?
Lathes Milling machines

As a standard, our far east factories fill in oils which provide increased corrosion protection and better cleaning efficiency due to the sea air and the expected service life (overseas transport). Other manufacturers also do this for safety reasons because they cannot predict how long the machines will remain in stock. These oils have a limited lubricating effect and are therefore changed after the running-in period.

Multifix System - Mounting quick-change holder

The Multifix tool holder is a standard accessory for metal lathes, which must be independently adapted to the locating bolt of the lathe for assembly.

The Multifix is turned to the bolt diameter and can then be mounted.

workshop equipment
How is a machine, e.g. a cross-cut saw, fixed to the machine stand?
USK2760, USK2900, USK1710

The machine is mounted on the guide rails of the machine stand (or directly on the machine stand for USK1710).

All machine stands from our product range are designed as universal for various machines or brands. For this reason, no fastening screws are included in the scope of delivery.

Depending on which machine you want to fasten, you must obtain suitable screws in the trade (e.g. DIY store).

Recommended are e.g. 4 lock bolts with suitable wing nuts + washers (e.g. M8x10 for the KAP305JL).
