Customer Reviews

18 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Electric 3-1/4 in. Planer with Reversible Woodrazor Blade and Basic Fence (Tool-Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a couple design improvements Good tool in a number of ways, but needs a couple things changed. Motor is powerful enough and doesn't stall. Carbide blade is necessary in a planer this size and as such, this carbide blade fits the bill, especially because it's 2-sided. The fact that it's battery-operated frees you from fussing with the cord dragging the workpiece and throwing your work off, and it was a major factor in my purchase--plus, I already own two Bosch 4-Ah batteries and one 6-Ah battery, bought with my Bosch cordless drill. The planer runs the 4-Ah battery down pretty quickly, so a 6-Ah battery is a good investment. The safety switch, however, is mounted to far forward on the front section of the handle and is therefore difficult to engage with your thumb when starting the planer. Switch positions are also a problem with the Cordless drill. Also, Bosch should offer a model with 2 planer blades for a smoother cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing planer I've only had the great pleasure of using this planer a handful of times but it cuts as effortlessly as a corded planer, great ergonomics, battery lasted longer than expected (4AH) This item was a good part of why I chose Bosch as my cordless lineup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great. For a basic planner it works fantastic. Use it for fitting doors to the opening. sharp blades make it easy to plane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value This is just one of many Bosch tools that I personally own and have found each one excellent design and manufacture. A nice feature is to change the direction of the chip port. A good design for left handed carpenters.
