    Was on the fence about reconditioned
    Product came as averted. I saw no dents or scratches on planer. It was advised as reconditioned but looks new. Powered up and works as described.
    Out of the box first run.

    Reconditioned tools is the way to purchase tools.
    Nice planer, does what wanted it to do. I think buying reconditioned is the way to go. Planes nice very little sanding needed.

    Breaker issue?
    The machine is awesome but has trouble planing an eight-foot board (2x6, fir) at a depth of 1/16 inch without tripping the onboard breaker. I'm not sure if the motor gets too hot or if the power draw is too high. It's disappointing and annoying. Otherwise quite satisfied.

    Barry on Oct 8, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: No, this planer is not equipped with a dust port for a dust extractor.
    sometimes I have to push or pull the board to make it move. Is this caused by dull blades or do the rollers need an adjustment? If so, how do you adjust them to make more pressure on the board.

    Rick on Mar 19, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Yes,the planer comes with the dust shroud.
    one of the earlier questions asked was does the planer came with blades. the answer was no, so does that mean that the planer comes with no blades at all or does that mean that it comes with blades but not new ones.
    Grease on Feb 23, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The planer comes with three knives included.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
