Best planer for price

"Having used this planer for over 3 years I must say I am very impressed with it's value and performance.
This Planer is great for sizing doors or furniture making. The setting are precise and easy to make and the planer holds these settings as long as you need them. The only improvement I can suggest is possible going to three blades

makita planer kit

"Kit is a good idea, fence would have been nice-e specially for larger/rough pieces. Nice blades for straight from dealer. Power is ok, but of course would like to have 3 blades- cuts are still adequate. again- for large pieces it can get heavy after a while, even at 6 pounds. Overall nice product for price."
