"I've owned this Makita planer for EIGHT years. This is an amazing tool! For all these years it's still working as good as a new product. Before this Makita planer, I have burnt out several other manufacture brand planers. I never got a chance to buy a new planer after I got this one. Just change the blades every now and then and I believe it will keep on runing for another hundred jobs."

"Working as a professional remodeler, the most important detail I would care about a planer's work is the 'snipe.' This Makita planer is the one tool I've ever used that does’t have that problem. I can plane long woods and then cut the size I want. It just works flawless. I also love the ergonomic design, which eliminated the cutterhead lock. "

"After I compared all the planer models I can find on the Internet, I felt this Makita would be my best choice. So I bought it and I was so impressed by its work. I used it to plane 100 feet of wood and it came out a very smooth surface with no snipe. The operation is quiet and easy to handle. The depth stop function is also very helpful to work on boards with the same thickness."
