Top customer reviews
Great features and smooth cut.
Only downside I found was that the dust collection chute seems to be made of a fragile plastic that I fear will break long before it should.
** the tool tray holders (that holds the wrenches in place) on the top of the dust chute broke the first time I clipped the tools in. However, dewalt was quick to send a replacement.
A planer is a must have for any serious woodworking shop and having used this for 2 months, I'm impressed. I've seen this same model used by the woodworkers I follow on YouTube in their shops large or small. You'll be happy with this purchase.
First the good. The finish on the boards is fabulous. That's what 30,000 cut per minute does! Second, I hooked the dust hood into my 2hp cyclone dust collector, and very few shavings were not collected. Worked perfect. I also put rolling tables for the infeed and outfeed, and little or no snipe.
Now the not so good. With my Powermatic I can get to 13/16" thickness in 5 passes from 4/4. It is taking 15 to 20 passes on the hard maple, and even then it blows the breaker every 10 to 15 minutes, which really slows down the process (it is plug into a dedicated 20 amp circuit). Any bow or warp in a board will strain the motor, often blowing the fuse. In 3 hours this afternoon, I only made it thru about 50 bf instead of 200 bf.
Other issues. Do check the infeed and outfeed fold outs. Mine where out of level, but easy to change. Second, others noted that the screw to attach the height control know was short. Mine is also short, and will pick up a longer bolt next trip to the lumber yard.
All in all, for $400, I feel it is a fabulous deal. I have been milling very hard wood, which shows its limitations. For site work out of the shop, I feel it will be a great tool. As a production tool, it does not replace the heavy equipment.
