Tool performs very well. Factory finish on the machine base was very poor. Looks like bubbles all in the finish.

Easily to Setup & It Worked Great
This is my first planer and it worked great. The Rigid 13 inch planer made quick work of getting several pieces of sassafras to same thickness. Chip removal was easily handled by connecting the planer to my 5.0 HP Rigid shop vac (2-1/4" dia. hose).

    Rigid planner
    I have used Rigid tools for over 40 years in the trades until now. Based on my past experience with Rigid is why I purchased this item. The machine works great but the chip ejection system sucks. The vacuum impeller is not powerful enough to remove the chips and plugs up every 20 minutes or less. Then you have to tear it apart clean it and reassemble it. That is only shaving off 1/64th of an inch. If you shave 1/32th it only takes 5 to 10 minutes before it plugs up. Most annoying.

      Smooth As A Sheet Of Glass
      There are not many planers on the market that suit the need of woodworkers who require just that little bit more width for items to plane without breaking the budget; mine was the fact that the Ridgid 13-inch, allowed me to plane 12 3/4-inch guitar bodies to a precise thickness without having to do much final sanding-- and all within what I would pay for a less caliber one. I was also amazed at the smooth cut the three blades provided.

      Best in class! Best = performance and quality/$
      A planer has been on my “nice to have” list to list for years. Is this the best DIY planer out there? Not likely but it is probably the best value unit, especially on sale and with a lifetime warranty. Does everything you would want! And if you’re at all timid or apprehensive, YouTube offers lots of help to get you started. I’ve found snipe is directly proportionate to levelling tables and supporting wood as it exits. Been extremely pleased so far, no regrets!

      I have had to return 3 in a years time. It's been a lil over a year so I can't remember what happened to the first one. The second one as I was running boards the motor blew. I just got my number three last week. When I started to use it I could hear a rattling noise. I should have taken it back the next day. I turned it on today go listen for the noise and one of the metal plates holding down a blade come free from all 6 screws and wrapped itself around the rotating bar. I will not be getting another.

        Good planer... Too bad about the experience.
        The limited number of passes that I’ve so far done with this planer indicate to me that it’s a solid piece of machinery. No set-up required out of the box and blade to table alignment was spot on with next to no sniping of the finished work. I had my doubts about portable planers given past experience with only larger stationary models, though this tool put my concerns to rest. Four stars because the online retail site indicated one unit in stock at another store that was outside of my city. Upon arrival it became obvious to me, given the bashed up box and missing manual, that they were selling a floor model. It wasn’t until I got it home that I noticed that the lockout key was missing as well. Some calling around and another out of town trip to a Ridgid service shop and I was able to get the required key... not cool. If I’m paying for new then that’s what I expect - complete contents as well.

        My son is using this machine to eat through old, used cedar pickets from a fence his brother is replacing. This planer has no problem finding the beautiful wood hidden inside these weathered boards. It leaves a beautiful finish with little to no sanding. Building a beautiful potting table suitable for the garden or patio completely out of recycled wood. This machine literally ran for hours, straight out of the box. Just quick measurements on the first few passes assured us the factory setting were true.

        Best planer for the money
        I have been running this planer hard for five years or maybe more. With some minor tuning it is accurate. This planer has three knives, a locking cutterhead, chip ejector, and depth indicator, putting this well above most competition. There is only one 15A planer that gives it a challenge and has a much higher price tag, making this the obvious choice. This is not a 3hp helical head stationary planer. It obviously doesn't compare. But those run around 3k
