Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jansen83 Great Tool, Easy to Use
This is a great planer. It is powerful and easy to use. It takes a little work to get the feed tables perfect but spending time doing so will greatly reduce the snipe. The dust port seems to work great. I connected it to my shop vac and it kept the work surface very clean. I can’t speak to how well this would hold up in a professional or production setting but I would definitely recommend this planer to any DIYer in need of a quality tool at a reasonable price. I ordered this planer online and it was shipped very fast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stan Great planer for the price
Great planer for the price, was disappointment with the first set of blades that came with the planer, but the replacement blades I ordered from Home Depot seem to have a better life, and staying sharper. Overall a great item and have been using for a couple of week with good results. Easy to use, smooth results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by speed its everything i had hoped it would be
I was a little worried about how this would work when I seen the blades. compared to others they seemed small and thin and not very strong. But after using it ,I was very happy with the way it worked. So the blades worked great and then I found out the blades was much cheaper to replace the most other brands of thickness planers were . So it turns out my worries turned into a bonus . Easy set up and I love the long cord that it has on it . This is the 3rd riggid product I have got and so for there products have not been any problem to perform its job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldSchoolHandyman Accurate, powerful, easy to set up and operate
My faithful old Delta 22-560, which makes 18000 cuts per minute with two blades just wasn't quite up to the job of planing end-grain cutting boards. The Ridgid 4331 three blade planer makes 27000 cuts per minute and is so accurate and smooth that it planed several end grain hardwood cutting boards, including one 12 7/8 x 22". After adjusting the in-feed and out-feed table extensions and bolting the R4331 to the work-bench, it planed these difficult to plane pieces so well that they needed very little sanding with my Porter Cable 6" random orbital. Ind-I-Cut made it easy to make several passes of about 1/128", one of the keys to successful end-grain planning. I inspected the blades and blade keepers after this hard workout and they looked perfect. Access to the blades involves removing two screws with the provided tool -- I don't see how it could be much easier. The chip extractor works very well with my dust collecting system. It took only a few minutes to register online with Ridgid to get the lifetime warranty. If this tool keeps performing the way it has this week, I will continue to be very happy.
