This planer uses the square blades that are mounted to a helical drum. So dull blades can be rotated 90 degrees to give the cutter new blades to cut with. I also purchased some spare blades in case I hit a nail or something.

I put an insert cutter head in my old P100 planer, that carbide lasts soooooo much longer than steel! My excuse was that my wife wanted to re-plane a bunch of ipe decking, and I didn't want to change the HSS blades for her every fifth board (or however many, I bet they would dull fast though). I've had that cutter head since 2015 and only just recently rotated the carbide inserts the first time. Love that setup!
