You pay a bit more for the makita name but it’s a great machine and a joy to use

tim dene, 28/10/2023

Well designed and good balance. If you don't use any extraction when using on MDF a dust bag is a must. Surprisingly long run time with no drop off in power

Alun Thomas, 27/10/2023

Dresses timber well. Pays not to take less than 3mm as taking too much leaves rough finish. Little and often is best.

Mr H, 03/07/2023

Quite heavy but well balance. Interchangeable chip ejection port is very handy being left handed & using an extractor.

Mike, 01/07/2023

Nice tool easy to use . No cables and powerful

Mark Hemming, 28/04/2023

A massive improvement on the brushed version

Paul Booth, 29/06/2022

The only problem is they don’t supply the rubber mat you used to get with planets in the past to keep the base good

Garrick, 24/03/2022

Now I know why I wanted a new one . It definitely makes my old one old . A pleasure to use !

Kevin James Peel, 16/09/2020

Probably the best cordless planer on the market. Really smooth and powerful. Dust extraction is excellent when hooked up to the shop vac.

Stuart, 06/07/2020

Expensive, but it is brushless and quite new so one could expect that. Quality and finish are very high. Nice rebating facility

customer, 11/05/2020

Only used it to shoot in 8 doors due to the Coronavirus but very good no leads
