Delta Invicta 13" planer - how wide a board can it plane?

I have 400 board feet of 5/4 rough sawn black walnut. The boards range from 6" to 11" in width and 6' to 8' long. Can a 13" wide Delta Invicta planer (DC-33 or RC-33) handle these? Or, do I need a 15" or 20" planer?

I do not know that planer, but the 13in size should be the length of the blade. As long as the width of the board is less than the width of the planer blade you should be fine.

Most planers can take up to around 6in thick, so your 5/4 boards will not be a height problem.
