Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very user friendly This planer is very easy to use. Set up was simple and operating is even simpler. It provides a great finishe to several types of wood, treated or non (it's best to plane treated lumber after its had time to dry). You won't be disappointed with this planet, it's a great value for its size and features You will want to have a large capacity shop vac hooked up while using cuz this guy makes a lot of chips. Also recommend using two roller support stands to keep the lumber level during feed in and out. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great planer This planer does a fantastic job. I have a small wood workshop and this does the trick for allowing me to create my own lumber. The cut is so smooth there is minimal sanding required. I would highly recommend this quality product to small wood workshops. April 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding machine This is a no-nonsense, capable and hardworking machine. It's first job was to plane 50bf of old growth, highly figured walnut. It motored though it effortlessly and produced outstanding surfaces with no chipouts. Also, it's relatively light weight makes for easy setup and storage in tight shops. March 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent results I have now used the planer on 8" wide oak and 11" wide poplar with excellent results. No additional sanding will be required. Minor adjustments on the in- and out-feed tables were required so the planed board was even to the end. I also had to clean grease from the cutting head before first use as has been pointed out by other reviewers. I used solvent on a rag to get most of the grease off and then ran scrap wood through to throw off the remaining grease. This is my first planer and was purchased due to the wide variety of rough sawn wood available to me now and I am very pleased with the results. March 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet Easy to set up with only minor adjustment to input / output trays. Very quiet. Most of the shavings are ejected without the use of a vacuum system. June 26, 2013
