Makita Quality Comes Thru
It's a very smooth operating unit, typical of Makita brand. While not having ability to resharpen blades with this planer may be a detraction to some, the high speed steel used should hold an edge longer, they are reversible, and there is no hassle with re-alignment. Consistent results expected every time after a blade changeout.

Great Planer/Great Price
Great tool! Significantly quieter than my previous 12" planer. Produces smooth finishes with little snipe. Easy to use and set up. My only complaint is that the dust hood isn't really "optional" (unless you want to be quickly buried in chips) and should be included as the hood took some searching to find.

You will not beat this planer anywhere.
It comes all set to go to work and after reading the instructions anyone can do a master job on any wood.

Another classy machine by Makita
Makita has done a terrific job of bringing a quality product to the masses (again). My planer [...] seemed to be perfectly set-up for immediate use. Having been around other planers, I was surprised how relatively quiet this one was. I cleaned up some fir 2x4's and then some hard maple and was very pleased with the almost glass like finish on both. I even put in thin strips and it didn't mind at all. I had many planers to choose from, but after research and my own experience with this Makita planer I feel like I have the best tool I could get. Quiet, economical replacement (double-sided) blades, easy enough to lift without grunting, and Makita quality make this planer an excellent buy!

Good planer poor dust hood 3 inch???????
Planer seems ok, but the dust hood is a nightmare to find a connector to fit, why make a 3 inch connector that will not fit in any standard 3 inch coupling

I WORK WITH MOST ALL HARD WOODS
my last 3 Makita planers came with a (dust)chip defector that I hooked up to the dust collector.
WAS SURPRIZED TO FIND I HAVE TO HUNT FOR ONE BEFORE I CAN USE IT, CONFINED TO A SMALL AREA.

Makita 2012 NB
This planer is very nice. It's typical Makita, being well engineered, simple to operate and does incredible job. Little finish sanding needed if any, depending on project. It's also amazingly quiet. I set it on a thin piece of rubber back carpet, it stays put and just purrs. Also little or no snipe.

Early review
As others mentioned, unit arrived well packed. After double checking that all bolts/screws were tight, I put it to work. Very impressed right off! I wear ear protection and wasn't sure it was cutting at first, but flying chip said it was. Couldn't believe it was that quiet, as most planers can be heard a block away. A little heavy to move around frequently but it is a solid machine and the weight aids it's performance. If you're tired of shelling out $$$ for plastic & pot metal that makes you feel sick when you open the box, then you'll be very happy about this machine. Snipe? What snipe? Just support board lightly as outfeeds. More later!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
