This is why I gave this Makita planner 4 rather than 5 stars. I've already given one of my other two power planers away. Requires a vacuum hose to control the mess it makes. I couldn't believe how perfect this Makita was for the job. Was amazed at how fast and effective this little Makita planer is

The fact is that the DEWALT DCP580B was the Cordless Electric Hand Planers that we graded the highest. Having said that, there were several other really premium quality Cordless Electric Hand Planers worth showcasing here that barely missed the mark.

Makita is yet another leading maker of Electric Hand Planers. They build the tool that is next on our rundown. Makita's Electric Hand Planers are great as well. I was ready to have a go at the model XPK01Z and I was not let down!

The model XPK01Z Electric Hand Planer by Makita, at $169.00 is a particularly excellent Electric Hand Planer for the price. If you uncertain about our number one choice, I'd consider the Makita XPK01Z next. It's a first class tool at a great price.

The Bosch GHO12V-08N and the Skil PL593802 are well worth looking into as well. Both Bosch and Skil are considered some of the best producers of premium Electric Hand Planers.

The GHO12V-08N by Bosch comes with a couple of features you might not experience on other similar Electric Hand Planers. For example BALANCED DESIGN: The Bosch GHO12V-08N provides an easy-to-handle, balanced cordless planer design for fast, smooth stock removal with the first 12V max planer on the market.. The Skil PL593802 however, is tough to beat offering 20V WOOD PLANER KIT—Includes a PWR Core 20 4. 0Ah Lithium Battery and PWR Jump Charger. plus BRUSHLESS MOTOR—The digital brushless motor provides efficient, high-performance power, delivering up to 14, 000 RPM..

This is why I gave this Bosch planner 4 rather than 5 stars. It's a nice tool to have around the house for small project. At this point the top surfaces of the joists was very uneven. Anyway, it works really well, and comes with a tool bag. New pressure treated boards, that we not dead straight.

I like quality tools that last a long time. We had to shave some doors down a small bit. Yes, this quickly filled, but it was better than nothing. The instruction can be improved with more picture. It is sturdy and the blade are double sided and sharp.

I've only used this a handful of times and have been pleased. I've already given one of my other two power planers away. Just quiet and smooth and leaves a glassy finish. Not only it's quick, the finish is impressively smooth too. Also this is a machine that will make your life easier.

Great for small planing jobs, no electric cord. It requires some skill to not run of the edge and dig. It runs smooth and the cutters are very sharp. The instruction can be improved with more picture. With that disclaimer out of the way, I'm very impressed.
