I like quality tools that last a long time. The power is good for full cuts in soft woods. It runs smooth and the cutters are very sharp. I'm building a farm table out of reclaimed lumber. With that disclaimer out of the way, I'm very impressed.

The Festool HL 850 E was really our preferred Festool Electric Hand Planers. However, there were a range of other truly premium quality Festool Electric Hand Planers we wanted to showcase here that just barely missed first place.

Festool is yet another major manufacturer of Electric Hand Planers. They produce the tool next on our list. Festool's Electric Hand Planers are no exception. I was eager to try the model 574690 and I was not let down!

The model 574690 Electric Hand Planer by Festool, at $680.00 is a particularly exceptional Electric Hand Planer for the money. The Festool 574690 is really a solid alternative. Of you are unsure about our number one pick, I'd suggest you select this Electric Hand Planer.

I like quality tools that last a long time. So other people wouldn't have too much trouble handling it. Requires a vacuum hose to control the mess it makes. I couldn't believe how perfect this Festool was for the job. Formidable projects are suddenly much easier to take on.
