Customer Questions & Answers

why in the world is this hand held planer over 2 grand ? anybody know ? anybody ?

Asked by: pw
There are only a couple brands of 12"+ hand planers on the market. They are very special purpose items used in niche markets. We are a timber frame company and use large hand planers like this to square up difficult, out of square timbers that our big two sided planer can't deal with. Makita makes great tools and this in no exception. At over 40# this is a large, well built, and very accurate tool. The only other 12" planer commonly used in the timber frame industry is made by the German company Mafell and sells for around $5k. It is well worth the cost!

15 Amp 12-1/4 in. Corded Planer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy ordering, fast delivery. We have many, many Makita tools and expect high quality from them.... Easy ordering, fast delivery. We have many, many Makita tools and expect high quality from them. This planer was no exception. It is heavy but that is to be expected as it's a big tool. The base is excellent making it very accurate. It has plenty of power for continuous use. It is much quieter and much more solid than our old Mafell that it is replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing better At first appearance I was disappointed in the tools fit an finish. The more I looked and used it I realized it trually is a purpose built tool. The performance is flawless in large planning applications. Unless you have the ability to feed your work into a stationary planner you just can't beat this beast of a machine. I recomend it to anyone who has some serious planing to do, but be ready for a workout.
