This well-designed planer offers fast stock removal and the smoothest finish--exactly what we expected from Bosch. The powerful 6.5 amp motor runs the versatile two-blade Woodrazor system at 16,500 rpm with a protective shield that covers the section of blade that's not in use. The fence itself deserves applause--bevels are accurate and easy to adjust. We love the chip ejection as well. Too many times, we've tried tools with an exhaust system that might as well not be there, but this one actually moves the removed stock and it's multidirectional! Deep cuts are possible in just one pass without bogging or chatter. There's even a spring-loaded park rest stand that protects blade and workpiece. The saw is a special shape that allows easy start-up in the middle of a workpiece. Accidental starts are a thing of the past because of the lock-off release button. Bosch thought of everything; we're impressed. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

The best feature is the dual-side chip exhaust. That comes in handy more often than I would have predicted. The included chip bag works well too, but I almost always attach the planer to my Festool dust extractor. The exhaust ports fit the Festool 27 mm and 35 mm hoses perfectly.
I don't care much for the safety switch. It is easy enough to operate with either right or left hand, but I'd just as soon not have it. I'd prefer a lock-on switch to the safety switch. Considering all you get for the price though, this is a pretty good deal.
I literally filled 4 32 gallon garbage cans with sawdust and wood scraps using this tool to remove paint and blemishes from 2x6 t and g redwood. It worked easily and efficiently.
You can change sides for the vacuum suction with a little switch which helps on most projects.
Make sure and use a vacuum. A shop vac with a bag and an adapter works great. A Vortex collector hooked to the shop vac works fantastic and doesn't clog your shop vac bag.
Great standard long cord.
The thing is noisy but every other brand that I have tried is also noisy.
the back has a little plastic piece that should pop down so that you can rest the tool before it stops. The piece filled with dust and hasn't dropped down so I have to wait for the tool to stop before setting it down. I could clean it and don't really blame the tool, though a stronger spring on this part would help.
I was concerned when I received my new planer and saw machining marks that were less than confidence-inspiring. The machining marks on about 30% of one side were obviously not machined the same way as the rest of the sole plate. It looked like the tail end of the cutting tool was doing the work in that area, as the tool marks were arcing in the opposite direction. So I began to doubt the rear sole plate was flat.
I contacted Bosch via e-mail on this matter. They responded quickly, and were extremely helpful. They sent me a new rear sole plate and forwarded my comments to a senior technical advisor to look into the matter. They also requested digital pictures (that I offered in my e-mail) to help them investigate the matter further.
After looking at the tool more closely, the rear sole plate WAS ACTUALLY FLAT and fully functional. So, this issue turned out to be nothing more than a cosmetic complaint, but Bosch listened to my concerns and did everything in their power to make me happy. Customer service this good is rare, and I applaud Bosch on their efforts.
Another thing I'd like to mention is that the planer kit comes with a chip bag, not the vacuum hose adapter. This typo appears in more than one place, but it's a fact that you get the chip bag instead of the VAC002 hose attachment.
And, yes, the planer works great too. I'll let the other reviews speak to that!
The Makitas have one flaw that always bothered me though, they vibrate a lot, probably from the drum being out of balance. So when my Makita was stolen (if you've been around a while you know what I'm talking about) and I heard about this new Bosch I was all over it. It does not disappoint.
It's as smooth as silk. The beveling fence is for real too. The guy that invented the switch-over chip exhaust deserves a raise. No more chips in the face when you have to change direction to avoid a blow out. Double edged carbide insert blades. Isn't technology (occationaly) wonderful?
My only complaint is that with all the new power this puppy has the job is over before you've hardly had the chance to enjoy it.
Just don't steal mine! Go buy your own.
