Top 10 Best Hand Held Electric Hand Planers

What Real People Are Saying About The Goplus SU-ET1123-110V

Good value Makita clone

Exact clone of the Makita planer. Only difference is that the RPM is a little lower. Uses the same blades that are very commonly available. Seems to be well made too, but only time will tell on that. Nice that it includes the tools to change the blades. Very good value for the price

Been a good tool so far. A little weaker than makita, but for the price you can't beat it. Planes even and strong. Can't complain at all. O even got a Makita belt cover for $5 and no one can tell the difference... lol!

Quility ,and useful

We were remodeling the room , useful for Grinding the excess, such as the door is too high, the angle is wrong. must have one

Five Stars

Works great for what we needed it for. We had to shave some doors down a small bit.


It is a good tool. A little weaker that makita but with the price it is is also well built.
