Customer Questions & Answers

It dose come with the cutting blades right, when I went to order online it looked like you had to purchase them also.

Asked by: HillBilly
Yes, It does com out of the box ready to work. The only items that you have to assemble are the dust chute, the safety key, and the depth adjustment handle on top. After that your ready to work.

Could I use this to square up a 5-8 inch thick log (about 4 ft long)?

I have some Russian Olive branches that have been drying for about 2 years. I want to make something out of the wood but need to square it so that I can cut it on a table saw.
Asked by: Paul
Yes, Build a Sled to Start it square on the start so you get a flat side to begin.

Bolts and screws are not guaranteed to be tight out of the box, check the blade lock screws before use. Mine were loose and and came out withing the first couple uses destroying a blade, blade lock, bar and damaging the piece running through it. Now I have had a gear for the roller break. This happened trying to take a 1/64" off a 12" wide board that had already made a few passes through. Overall this product has almost as much time being repaired as it does running. As for the Lifetime service agreement you have to deliver it to a certified dealer or ship it back to the factory. In my case the nearest dealer is over 60 miles away and I live in a decent sized city. In either of these cases it will cost me more in gas or shipping to take it in for repair than just replacing the part myself. Another thing to note: I have had to order some blades for this, often times the they show up as a discontinued part under the factory number. It may be that once the current stock runs out you will be unable to get replacement blades. Look elsewhere, spend a little more and get a planar that does not use the cheapest materials known to man.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate for my needs This is my second planer and I only have a Makita planer to compare it to. It is definitely heavier and louder than the Makita and the blades are wearing a little faster than the Makita. The reason I didn't purchase a second Makita was that the motor went out shortly after the warranty did. The Rigid planer was cheaper and the warranty was better so I thought I would try it out. After the infeed and outfeed are adjusted and as long as the blades are sharp, it does as well as the Makita. Just make sure you have adequate hearing protection.

Longer and more ridgid in feed and out feed tables would make this product perfect. Discharge fan keeps the table almost spotless and with a shop vac hooked up the table stays clean. I honestly wish the feed speed was adjustable because with multiple small pieces to feed through, it goes very fast, with longer pieces the speed is perfect. The chain had a lot of slop in it that made it drag on the bench but I made a round spacer out of azek with a channel in it for the chain to ride and it puts just enough tension on the chain to keep it off the bench but still loose enough not to stress it at all. Now it works perfectly. I have planned down about 100' of hard maple so far and a ton of soft mahogany without issue.

When I turned it on again after that bolt fell out I heard strange noise... will investigate this morn... when I opened the package I found a small screw, see pictures.. not sure what it belongs to,, anyone??

Home Depot sold me a 3 pack (AC20502) for $29.99. Item AC20502 states clearly on the table for use with R4330 and R4331. These blades do not fit. Rigid just told me that the only option is #089170109104 for $16.49 per blade. That's $19.49 more per set?! (65% increase) Rigid and Home Depot lied and they refuse to stand by the product offering.

I like the 1 inch stop guide on the side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some things weren't designed well All in all this exceeded my expectations but the chain on the bottom is so sloppy that it drags on the surface the planer is sitting on. A simple bearing would fix this for pennies but it was overlooked by ridgid. The power cord and dust port are on opposite sides or the product so you either walk over the dust hose or over the power cord to get to the outfield table, another oversight. The quality of the table is acceptable but I would have liked more stable I feed and out feed tables. They flex a little more than I would have liked but the finish quality of the pieces that come out is exception. Once dialed in, very little or no snipe can be achieved mostly because of the locking cutter head which is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orange vs. Yellow During my search for a thickness planer I did quite a bit of research. I had always been a "yellow" tool guy, and initially was leaning toward yellow. The more I read, and spoke with other diy woodworkers I realized that while the heavy duty Yellow model was indeed superior, it wasn't because it performed better than the Ridgid. The Ridgid planer puts out the same quality of product as the $650 yellow model. The yellow model just had a couple unnecessary frills, oh and a much heftier price tag. In my opinion, and as I said before I have yellow tendencies, this Ridgid planer is awesome! Could not be happier with my decision. Don't spend $300 more for no reason
