Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is easy to use. This product is easy to use and like the some of the other rigid power tools I have has a lockout key to prevent children or other people not familiar with the product from using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new thickness planer is slicker than snot on a pump handle. This is the second thickness planer I have owned made by Ridgid. It is easy to use and is a great tool to have in the shop. I am 70 years old, and I have used thickness planers for many years... since the 10th grade of H.S. Many of my earlier years' planers were more of a commercial-industrial type, but now my wood working is slowing down, as is my own body, so the stationary thickness planer by Ridgid is more to my speed. It is a good tool and does a great job for "non-production" work. I am pleased with it as a licensed residential-commercial Handyman. It does everything I ask of it and possibly more. A good investment for the work shop of any woodworking enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value and performance Had this little planer for several years ( did not realise then that there was a lifetime warranty available but fortunately have not needed it so far) Done an amazing amount of work including facing about 3 dozen sawn cedar 6x6 for three decks and all the deck timber plus all the usual shop jobs and still have the original blades in use!! I love ALL my Ridgid tools , including table saw, impact drivers regular drills and my wife keeps stealing my Ridgid radio as it sounds so good. Had three batteries replaced with no trouble at all, The Nanaimo service centre even had two delivered as I was some way away and he was out of stock when I visited. Keep up the good work guys ,excellent products and service ,thankyou...........................

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth use and little snipe This cleaned up barn lumber and brought out the beauty of the wood. It paid for the sweat while taking the lumber of the sides of the barn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robust and hard working planer. Good benchtop planer, with plenty of brawn to work with. Extra blades a real plus for keeping the tool in service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing Works as expected. Easy to fine tune the thickness. Feels very durable and my rigid vacuum sucks the dust right out of this thing like nothing. I love the depth gauge, use it all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great planner Great product. Use it constantly to mill boards for furniture. Blades are easy to change. It works well no matter what wood is run through it. Sometimes bogs down on exotics but what planner doesn't. Have owned the rigid planner for almost 8 years. Would recommend the product to anyone wanting a good potable planner

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered I use this to clean up rough cut Cedar prior to toys, outdoor furniture, etc. Reliable, fast, powerful enough for a weekend warrior

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I have had this tool for 15+ years. Works everytime. The only problem I have is that the fence is not perfect. I needed to put a couple pieces of tape close to the blade to get an exact 90 degree cut. This would be a problem with casting, because there is no way to adjust the fence. Other than that the saw has performed flawlessly for all these years. It's still tight. And I love being able to make compound cuts. Now if I used sharp blades the saw would even perform better

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The warranty is none existant Beware if you need parts up here in BC(Canada) its a nightmare trying to find them. Don't bother going to the vendor as they don't even know where the supplier is for parts or repair. I would think twice about buying any rigid small tool for this reason. Its a joke when you have a warranty and no one including Rigid can send you in the right direction. The number on the parts book that came with the machine is not in service. You have been warned. Don't use the planer if you lose a small blade spring, the button heads do unscrew themselves through vibration and jam the planer. It worked well for a month or two of light usage.
