The Makita KP0800 3-1/4-Inch Planer delivers power, cutting capacity and ease of use. Ideal for professional construction framing, window and door installation, and fine woodworking. It features a 6.5 AMP motor that delivers more output power, with a two-blade cutter head and 17,000 RPM for increased stock removal and superior finishes. The rigid die-cast aluminum housing with all ball bearing construction is engineered for long tool life, and the precision-machined aluminum base delivers more planning accuracy. The KP0800 weighs only 5.7 pounds for a high power-to-weight ratio, with an ergonomically-centered balance and rubberized front and rear handles for more comfortable operation. The machined aluminum and balanced planer drum are engineered for reduced vibration and added durability, and the spring-loaded stand elevates the base to protect the blades and workpiece. Includes lock-on button for continuous operation, and an easy blade setting system for fast blade installation.
