Pros
Easy To Use
Worth the time and money?
When this works it is simply amazing! It planes hard and soft woods with an excellent finish; especially when taking off 1/64th" inch at a time.

Powers through even mahogany, red oak, and curly / hard maple with no problems! It does awesome job planing everything up to 12" wide with ease.

The only major Fallback on this whole product are these simple problems:

1) Kevlar V Belts split or fall apart quite easily with only a few uses and only a few hours of use.

2) The belts coming apart ruins and melts the belt guard constantly. The belt guard being made of plastic; thereby making it easily ruined when belts break at such high RPMs.

3) Ruined belts and belt guards demand that you not only replace the belt, but the plastic belt guard as well every time as they can conflict with new belts movement.

4) These 2 simple parts are ALWAYS back ordered by Delta/Porter Cable.

So my suggestion is that you might as well not go with this model.

I have only owned mine for 3 months. It broke the first time I used it (belt was installed in factory backwards. Yes! Backwards if you can believe that!) And it also broke another belt (ruining belt guard as well) the second time I used it with the replacement parts I got under the warrantee. So it has sat for the last 10 weeks broken waiting on back-ordered parts I cannot find anywhere.

Beware
Bought the 22-590 to replace my 22-580 that I lost in a shop fire. When making a light pass with the very first board ever put through it (first pass, also); the machine made a funny grinding noise, then I smelled burnt rubber, and the board stopped. Upon inspection I found the drive belt shredded and the cover for the belt assembly melted. I called Delta and they referred me to a local service center (unit has a 5yr warranty) to repair the item under warranty. Over six weeks later it still sits in their shop. This problem, evidently, is occurring so much in the 22-590 that no one can get the belts or even the cover assemblies in, because Delta can't keep enough in stock. I miss my 22-580 (it was chain driven).
Until Delta proves it can overcome this problem or changes their design, I cannot recommend this item. I can not attest to the quality of the planing function of the unit....because it couldn't hold together long enough to plane even one board.

Nice planer
Excellent planer with a very smooth cut. I like the 3 blades; they seem much improved over the two-blade setup. Curiously enough, there seems to be more snipe and less dust collection than with a previously used model 22-560. Overall, pleased.

Works just like advertised
I am working on making boxes out of woood cut and processed from my property. This has made possible to get wood of uniform dimensions. Except for hard fruit woods without straight grains it has worked flawlessly. For Walnut, oak,cedar the results require very little sanding as the finished cut is baby bottom smooth.

i'd do it again
having used the delta 12.5" planer for the last ten years i find this one to be a nice step up. it functions much the same but is simply more of what is best in the smaller planer. a fine machine for the diy'er.
