I finally replaced an older planer and was surprised how well this unit worked. It has very good depth control. The weight is sufficient for stock removal, but light enough to use it for long periods. Mine came with the beveling guide and it is engineered as a match to the unit, very sturdy. The chip bag works fine, but I usually attach it to my vortex shop vac.I had to look for attachments for the vac to fit the chip outlet. It would be nice if tool manufactors would supply the proper standard fitting or outlet size that directly fits a 1 1/4" vac hose.

Read all the reviews on this planer and didn't find anything objectionable that couldn't be handled. After I started using it, I found that the shavings were not being ejected. I thought maybe the bag was full. Took the bag off and the problem still occurred. When the shavings aren't ejected, it slows the knife down which leaves marks in the wood. Had to stop work after a short time and clean out. Other than that, I really like the tool. I guess if it were hooked up to a vacuum, you probably wouldn't have the problem but this is supposed to be a portable tool.

Good all around Tool
Planer is well balanced and makes quick work of any task, the dust collection bag worked wonderfully on a few jobs that I had to finish in the house.
from Grand Rapids, MI, United States
I was a little skeptical of a single blade planer, but no problems at all. I use the planer a lot, and blades are very affordable. My previous brand planed had 2 blades, didn't work as well and cost 5 times as much to replace the blades. Very happy.
Great tool for what is for
from Berwyn, IL, United States
I bout this tool to use it on doors but I found other things I can use it on it came in handy. I need it it.
from Reading, PA, United States
I bought this a few months ago and have used it about six times for various projects. Basically I use it to do "field trimming" of molding, casing and baseboard. For that it works fine although it does take some practice to control the tool properly to avoid gouging at the end of a cut.
from Texas, United States
The tool has greatly helped relief stress or discomfort in my hands/wrist. Beats having to sand for hours.
from southcentral Wisconsin
Used other brands and this ones blows the others away. Plenty of power to plane a little or a lot in a jiffy.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good piece of equipment
from Battle Creek, MI
All in all this is a very good piece of equipment. One thing I would like to see different is adding one more fine depth adjustment. It would be nice if the zero setting could be cut in half.

Gives the wood a real nice smooth finish I planed some pine boards with knots in them and it did a real good job
