Not what I was hoping for...
I have to be honest in this one. I have been using this tool for quite some time, and I am not overly enthusiastic about it. Here are some pros and cons... Pros 1) Price is less than any of the big planers that don't have a ton more capacity. 2) This comes with "Helical Style" cutter heads, which I will say leave a pretty nice finish. 3) The dust collection is pretty good. I have this connected to a 4" elbow that pipes directly into my system and I have never had an issue with clogging. Cons 1) The snipe on this thing is RIDICULOUS! I have spent a significant amount of time adjusting my planer and I have managed to minimalize the snipe, but it took a lot of effort and I have to say that despite my best efforts, I still get some decent snipe from time to time. This isn't my first rodeo with a planer, so when I saw that came out after my first few runs, I immediately started adjusting the infeed and outfeed tables. Much to my surprise, I was actually getting pressure/jamming on the infeed side and was still getting snipe! That's flat out crazy... 2) This puppy is pretty darn loud for a "Helical Style" cutter head. It's not any louder than a typical lunchbox style, but don't expect purring kitten... That's pretty much it for now. I guess that I gave this a middle of the road review because I don't hate this thing, but I also don't exactly love it. I can't afford to do it now, but I am thinking that I will upgrade to something bigger in the near future that will also hopefully be less finicky.
Somewhat misleading, it's a segmented head, not helical.
This planer is advertised as a helical head, but in reality it is a segmented head planer. While it does do a great job of planing and has plenty of power, it does have considerably more snipe than the old Makita I replaced. One of the first tests I put it through was curly Maple. By using the low speed setting and taking light passes, I was able to plane that curly Maple almost perfectly free of defects. I think if it was a true helical, it would have been able to take deeper cuts without any chip out, but other than that, I am pretty happy with it.
