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
thickness planers do not square up lumber. They only follow the pattern on the bottom of the feed.

13 in. Thickness Corded Planer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 284.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality with shipping package and performance. Ordered the planer online and it arrived damaged. The foam protection in the box was inadequate. Returned it to the local store and ordered a replacement online. The replacement was shipped to the local store this time in the hopes it would arrive in good shape. Picked up the planer, ran two boards through it and heard a terrible sound. Told it would take 4-6 weeks before I would get the planer back. Instead of waiting, returned it for a refund, and bought a different planer from another company. My experience was so frustrating. My new rule is never order anything from Home Depot. Only buy things you can walk out with. This is the fifth time I ordered something and had problems.

Boards come out to about a 120 grit sandpaper level. You need to make sure you keep the table waxed. I always wax prior to starting a new project. I'm just a hobbyist, so it can go a couple months between projects. My only complaint is that Home Depot doesn't stock the replacement blades and you have to order them online. They do stock DeWalt blades, but one of the reasons I chose the Rigid planer was that DeWalt blade cost almost twice as much to replace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took very minor adjustments to get this perfect. Longer and more ridgid in feed and out feed tabl... Took very minor adjustments to get this perfect. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
