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

It's true that the Makita KP0810 was the Makita Electric Hand Planers that we graded at the top. Having said that, there were a few other very premium Makita Electric Hand Planers we wanted to show you here that only just missed the mark.

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. I used it to clean up salvaged/reclaimed wood. It's closer to the street than the house! It is sturdy and the blade are double sided and sharp.

I've only used this a handful of times and have been pleased. If you only used a crude hand plane you can use this. You can take as little or lot off as you desire. I'm building a farm table out of reclaimed lumber. Makes a mess even with the bag on but whatever

I do like the portability and ease of use. It's not convenient, but it did contain about 98% of the mess. Just quiet and smooth and leaves a glassy finish. Overall the feel of the tool was pretty good. With it over a standard run through planer.

I've only used this a handful of times and have been pleased. We had to shave some doors down a small bit. At this point the top surfaces of the joists was very uneven. The left/right chip ejector is much better than Makita's. I can't get too close to the floor with it.

Power is adequate for fresh cut oak rough planks. So other people wouldn't have too much trouble handling it. I rigged up a table based on videos that I watched online. You do not have to be an NFL linebacker to use this. Without this planer, I had no idea how to solve the problem.
