I dont know that planer, or if it can be adjusted.
If it has a pressure bar between the cutter head and out feed roller, the problem can be there "set too high".
If the machine has table rollers, those can be set too high also.
If the machine has a chip breaker- a pressure bar between the front roller and cutter head, there might be a problem there.
Machines with shorter distance in the cutter head unit are more likely to have snipe.
Having to cut off a board because of snipe would be a bad deal for me, the cost of the wasted wood, could exceed the cost of a good planer in a short time.
Some planers, snipe cant be eliminated totaly, but can be reduced so as wood is not wasted.
I held out, and found a planer that has zero snipe problems-none at all. That is, after careful set up of the components.
