Excellent Value, Well Built.
Unbelievable for the price w/rebate...much nicer unit than the H-F one for similar money.
Ran Oak flooring through to shave off ridges and finish...smooth cut, no lag. It's 15 amp...UL won't allow higher on 110v, runs strong. I have not run miles of stock through it, but others have suggested not to do it with this unit.
Seems like the perfect solution for my small multi-shop where I produce about a project a month. Looking forward to using more...it's that nice.

Great buy and wonderful price!
I'm satisfied with this planer and it does a great job overall. As with other reviews, this will add a 2" snipe to your board and I've found trying to feed a board in after it to avoid the snipe is usually more trouble than just chopping the 2" off, especially on cheaper wood.This thing is HEAVY for those who will be moving theirs around. The package weight was 62 lbs.Now concerning the "reconditioned" aspect of it ... my planer blades have nicks them that were leaving grooves in my boards from the start. This was annoying, but I suppose it's acceptable considering it's not too bad.The part that really urked me was that the planer head wasn't level, meaning that the blades/rollers were lower on the right side than the left. I fed a board through on the left side and it wouldn't shave anything off of it, but then I'd run it through on the right side and it'd shave some off. It doesn't mention anything in the manual on how to adjust this either. I had to go online and finally found it on the porter cable website.It's not hard to adjust, but this is something that should've been checked/corrected when it was reconditioned and I could easily see people returning this item because they can't find instructions on how to adjust it.After getting it leveled, this planer works great!I've ran several boards through it; recovered pallet boards, resawn lumber, and dimensional lumber that I needed thinner, all without any issues.[@]carried these, but for some reason they never have them in stock and have since removed the display one from my local store. Even some online stores seem to have a shortage on these so finding this here and at this price made it well worth it!

works great!!
I have passed a lot of hardwood through this machine and am quite impressed with the overall performance. I did not have to make a single adjustment to this machine. It works flawlessly direct from shipper. The packaging was adequate yet simple. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Great Machine
I am reluctant to buy anything described as "reconditioned" but thought I would give it a try. I don't know what was fixed on this tool but other than a small ding on the chute it looked brand new and had all the paperwork and original box. I checked it over and all adjustments had already been performed so all I needed to do was plug it in. Ran 1x12 rough cut poplar with ease. Nice machine and fast shipping. Very pleased.

Can't beat th price !
I bought some old growth reclaimed ponderosa pine. The mill had some problems with thickness
, because the wood was so dense. Some of the wood was 5/4 and others were 4/4. This planer polished that wood to a perfect 7/8 in no time. Note: Planeing was done in small increments.

Work horse planer
This planer is perfect for just about any woodworking job you throw at it. I have run maple, oak, hickory and soft woods through it, and it has handled all with ease. Easy to set up, and simple to use. I would recommend this planer to anybody who works with wood. And it is just as good as some high dollar planers I have used in the past.

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.
