I had a Parks planer in my shipyard for years. They are beasts. With the cast iron base and five horsepower (3 phase) motor it weighed in at around 1800 lbs. You could stuff a 16’ 4×12 in it and walk away. I can’t comment on the “fine finish” qualities but if you want to process rough timber into clean dimensioned stock, ( which is what planers are for) you won’t be beating a Parks very easily. I would highly recommend them if you have the space and power.
