        Comments about Makita 2012NB 12-in Planer:

        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

        Comments about Makita 2012NB 12-in Planer:

        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.

          Comments about Makita 2012NB 12-in Planer:

          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!

          Warranty

          Warranty Information

          Makita Standard Warranty

          The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. 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.

          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.
