    Is it the same Ridgid planer that usually sold for $369 model R4330?
    Thanks

      I"m pretty sure he's talking about the R888 Planer.

          Go grab one while you still can. While you're at it, grab the jigsaw and the caulking gun as well. I've got 'em all and I am using them all as I'm trying to rehab an old building. Great tools.
          I'm on "The List" and I love it!!

            Saw one yesterday for $79. Nearly bought it, but thought I would ask others what they think of it. I only have the 18 volt batteries; is that enough power? and how long does it run for on a full pack?

            I would only expect to use it occasionally (although once I have it I'm sure I would find lots of tasks for it). Would I be better off buying a corded planer with a higher rpm at a similar price. I think I saw the Ryobi corded planer for $69, and the small Bosch for $99.

            I tried searching the forum for some wisdom on this item, but didn't find much to help with these questions. I did however find several comments about difficulties in getting replacement blades; is this a problem?

            If corded is the way to go. How much better is the Bosch over the Ryobi?

              the hand planer is a very good tool. smooth operation and adjustments are a breeze. i have the 18V planer which was sold as a complete tool (with battery and charger), but it's the same planer. have yet to find something it can't handle.
              there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

                its been clearanced out at all the local HDs here, so I am guessing a new model is coming out or it was discontinued all together.

                  It works great. Never changed blades yet.

                      I was lucky enough to stumble on the Ridgid cordless planer kit (planer, battery, charger, extra blades, etc, case) on clearance for $69 a while back. I don't use a hand planer a lot, but since I got this one, I have not used a corded one at all. Power is very good and unless you're making LOTS of cuts, I have yet to kill the battery. Very useful tool.
                      You only live once, so play with your tool often.
