This jointer came in a large heavy box, just able to fit in the bed of my mini-pickup. Before assembly read the instructions. It will take 2 people to comfortably assemble this machine. I did it alone and my back has suffered since. The pieces for assembly are neatly organized and layed out for assembly. The heaviest item will be the cutter bed assembly. Be sure to have a couple of 4x4's to set the table on upside down during assembly - it is needed.

Assembly took about 1 hour or less, but I spaced it out over several hours because of heat & humidity. The assembly was straight forward, no misleading info or parts. In the belt tensioning stage it is best to have the jointer/motor correct side up. That way gravity assists you in tightening the screws that keep tension on the belt.

Things to watch for:

1) To retighten or put on a new belt you must remove the back plate (6 screws) by feel, then loosen the hard to reach motor mount bolts to slide the motor up or down. It's a bit tedious to reach and adjust belt tension.

2) The chip/dust chute plugs up pretty quick from the inside flanges, but a vacuum assist will greatly help here. I'm wondering if removing the plastic chute from the frame will expedite chip removal. I can sweep up later.

3)While the fence has 3 preadjusted settings they need to be double checked for correct angle before use. Mine were off by a hair.

4) Check the blade height and tables for colinear alignment. They are initially done at the factory and my adjustments were fine. The table was just a hair out of colinear alignment. The back of the table was OK , but the front was out by maybe 1/128th inch or less. I doubt it will be a factor in my work, but just knowing this is annoying.

Bought this at a local Home Depot. Works great, I was able to set it up by myself without any trouble. I liked how the fence adjustment knobs felt - much better than a Delta I was comparing this to. Not terribly loud, much quieter than my 13" planer.

Performs great - a whole stack of white oak went through it without a hitch. Chipped one of the blades while cleaning up some pine 2x4's (gotta watch that dirt...).

I use a dust collector on it, (Delta 1.5hp) and have had no issues with dust or chip removal. I also put it on a set of wheels (the type with 4 wheels connected by 2x2's), and it is plenty stable.

Only real drawback is that the blade guard pivots on a pin that sticks up higher than the bed. This makes it impossible to put anything wider than 6.25" through the planer. No cheating and taking 2 passes on a 10" board.

Just bought this Jointer at Home Depot (it's considerably cheaper) Set up took me a couple hours by myself. If I had to do it again I would definatly get help from a strong friend since the cutter head/ table is extremely heavy. But that's not a bad thing in a jointer. I didn't have any trouble with chips clogging and I use an inexpensive dust collection system. I used it to joint several 2X6's to make a table top out of and it performed better than I expected. I do agree that changing the belt could be a pain in the neck but hopefully I wont have to do that very often.

I watched for this to go on sale at Home Depot and got it when it was marked down to $299. From opening the box until I ran the first test board through it took 2 hours and 10 minutes and included time for a cup of coffee. So far I've run a good deal of white oak furniture projects through it in a number of various scenarios(short stock, long stock, bevels, depth settings, etc).....and it does a great job to specification. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good home use jointer. I also thought the documentation for setup was pretty good when compared to other home shop tools I've purchased. Growing up, my Dad always said you cannot go wrong with Ridgid stuff....he just didn't know (back then )it would eventually be made in Taiwan. All in all...I'm giving this unit good marks.

Verified Purchase
I have just finished assembling this jointer and haven't yet used it much. But I have checked it for flatness and alignment of the beds and I have done enough checking of the adjustment of the blades that I am satisfied that it came from the box pretty well adjusted for use. It also seems to be very solid and well made. And the motor runs. So I anticipate that it will work very well.

I had been concerned about its 200+ pounds weight in terms of getting it down to my basement after delivery, but that turned out not to be a serious problem. It was delivered by CEVA from a truck with a lift gate, a sort of special delivery, but there was no additional charge for shipping or delivery (using the super saver option). Amazon calls this "white glove" delivery. The driver is instructed that it must cross a "threshold" and be delivered into a building. So, the driver put the single box on a mobile hydraulic lift/cart and moved it over an asphalt driveway into an attached garage. It had rained and the driver refused to take the hydraulic lift/cart over the lawn to get to a walkout basement door and deliver it directly to my basement.

The box is about 56 inches long and 22 inches wide. It sits about 16 inches high. Getting it down the basement however was simply a matter of carrying all the parts but one down the steps by hand (even the motor probably weighs no more than 30 pounds and the fence probably no more than 25 pounds), and then using a very simple hand truck to move the heaviest part, the bed. The bed, made of cast iron, comes in one piece. The infeed and outfeed tables are pre-assembled. It must weigh at least 100 pounds by itself, and I would guess more like 110 or 120 pounds.
