Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product and batteries I’ve purchased a number of rigid tools for the warranty. That being said with each purchase I have had some difficulty with the warranty registration, requires perseverance to get the issue resolved. I found the tool itself very good, the starter battery does not last very long but if have three batteries so it isn’t a big problem. If purchasing you might want to consider purchasing two batteries. rigid tools for their warranty,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hand planer! Great tool, this planer cuts smooth and effortlessly. Keep the bag on though it really throws the wood chips far! My only issue l find is the depth control for a bevel cut. I can't see where l can make an adjustment on that part? My last issue l have yet to check is replacement blades or methods to sharpen them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent planer I have been very happy with this planer so far. I use it for cabinet installation. It has lots of power, and the dial for depth adjustment works well. It does well collecting dust at first, but then gets a little messy, and it is a little heavy in the hand but other than that I love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous tool great addition I have had this tool working many jobs it has come through for me. The cuts are smooth and with the bag I have less mess. I have trimmed doors from sticking, and boards to fit in snug. My only issue I have is the bevel cut feature I am not sure how to gauge the depth?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plane Sense Great addition to the toolbox. Easy to use and so much faster than my old style planer. Highly recommend this tool for the average do-it-yourselfer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid Cordless Planer I like the planer but it only works best when you use a 4.0 or 5.0 battery in my opinion and experience
