Answer: 
yes the blades are installed. I would advise you purchase at least one package of extra blades if you order a planer on-line. They never seem to be available in my store. Management doesn't seem to figure to inventory more packages for the stores.

Though this planer does not come with a stand it is worth purchasing. I have planed numerous cherry boards and have been very happy with the smooth finish. Dewalt makes a relatively inexpensive planer stand DW3750 that can be modified (4-Holes) for use with the Ridgid R4330 planer.

Lifetime guarantee, however, you will probably need it. I bought this planer and within the first month several parts broke or fell off. I chose not to use the guarantee and returned the planer for a refund. I figured if that much goes wrong this early in my useage, I will be without the use of it more than I will have it operational. The quality on this particular model, at least the machine I had, was very lacking. Several of the parts were not tightened properly from the factory and vibrated loose, and one of the cutting blades broke.
I was very disappointed with this product.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 227 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value Easy to set up easy to use only be warned it is heavy June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Recieved used planer Bought planer online from homedepot's website and it had sawdust inside as soon as I opened the box. Returning it to the store. Supposed to be brand new. June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Started squealing and grinding This thing really planes the lumber smooth. Almost no sanding. But after using the planer for two table projects, it started squealing bad. Then started to sound like it was grinding. Removed the cover but did not find anything. Returned it to homedepot and ordered another one. The guest service desk was awesome. Transaction went smooth and hoping the new one doesn't have the same problem. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rigid Planer Excellent results... Be sure to have sufficient power source. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice planer and great warranty This is my first planer and I was liking the warranty. The planer was easy to set up and use. There is a YouTube video on it just put in the model number. I use this for reclaimed lumber. Does an excellent job May 31, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great until it breaks I really liked this machine for awhile - I'm a light user (1-2x month, minimal lineal feet) and it was a smooth machine for a little over a year. Very smooth cuts, very minimal snipe, excellent value. Then I helped my son with his BSA Eagle Scout project and had to plane 320 lineal feet of pine to remove 1/4" total thickness. I put in new blades, waxed the tables and started planing... taking off 1/32" (1/2 crank) per pass. Probably could have taken off more (it's pine), but wasn't in a hurry. After about halfway though the task, the rollers stop feeding. Blade spins freely, but rollers don't move and machine makes abnormal noise coming from the left side. I start researching and find out that the nearest service center is 3 hrs away (not good). Research some more, find a parts list/diagram and pull the left side of the housing off to investigate. I'm hoping that I'm going to find a bad sprocket spinning against the chain (sprocket is a $7 part). Nope... gearbox is mush -- shattered teeth all over the main gear. Unfortunately, the gearbox is a $100 part. So I either ship the machine to the service center and delay the project for 6+ weeks (average turnaround time), or pony up the $100 and switch the gearbox out myself. There is probably less than 20 hrs of usage time on this machine and the gearbox is fried? Really? I know this is a DIYer quality machine, but that's ridiculous. June 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Planer! I have previously worked in a cabinet shop where they had a nice 3-phase 15 inch planer that would take a fork lift to move. This portable planer gives me an incredible capability compared to a heavy duty shop planer. I also previously owned another portable planer that only had 2 blades and you could carry it with one hand. This Ridgid outperforms it but it does take both hands to lift and move it. I reviewed the DeWalt but for the money and the lifetime warranty on the Ridgid, you cannot get a better planer. And no, I am not getting paid to say this and I do not work for HD or Ridgid. I am merely a weekend enthusiast. Every serious DIY'er needs a nice table saw, mitre saw, jointer and a GOOD PLANER! April 19, 2016
