Curious, is sampling one planer of a specific size (and not bothering providing the make/model) akin to asking the question - How much does a car cost?

Gonna guess that for most of those, there is only one of that size on the market (in other words, the Comet's survey captured all the available data).
However, going off on a tangent, I have to wonder about the thinking of the company offering a 14 7/8" inch planer. The value of that size escapes me.

It's probably one of those things where they use 15" knives and reduce the available width by a tiny amount so as not to leave a ridge on the edge of the board.

I'm sure the actual size was not really a consideration. Most likely that is the width between the guides and not the width of the knives. Knives are typically longer than the width between the guides to prevent portions of the boards from not being cut.

Your wife said that you only need a 40" one anyway.

Let's see, most of my stock is under 10", but I do occasionally have some 12- 14" pieces. Assuming the heavy duty planers cost more per inch, give me 11" @ $499.96 and another 4" @ $42.92 for the one off jobs. Together, that should cover all my needs.
