Review: My planer does well with any wood I throw at it. The depth control is easy to use and accurate. I just dont understand why Makita though it would be a good idea to dump the chips out right next to the motor fan that sucks air in. If you've used a planer you know that these things create a mountain of chips in a hurry and that is the last thing you want getting inside the motor housing. Makes me suspicious of how much the engineers field tested this model...
Pros: strong, easy blade change,
Cons: chip exhaust next to motor fan
