  • R888 planer replacement blades

    I looked and M and D Mower, E replacement parts, and Home Depot
    The replacement cutting blades are listed as "discontinued" no longer available!

    Any ideas as to what we do now when we need new blades?

    I looked at the Ryobi hand planers hoping there would be a compatible
    blade I could use but no luck.

    Don't know if it's true or not but both these sites show stock available:

    RIDGID BLADE ASSEMBLY 300132022 - $98.10 | 1800ToolRepair.com

    Ryobi Ridgid Part # 300132022 CUTTER ASSEMBLY W/SPIRAL BLADE

      Nice try Plumber Punky.....

      The R888 hand planer was about $98.00 new
      Typically the replacement spiral blade set [2ea] went for about $18.00
      Then prices went up and today it's likely close to $30.00.

      You gave me an assembly with the blades at $90-$98.00!!!!!

      I have yet to call Ridgid customer service as today is Friday.
      Every place I have used for Ridgid parts show these blades as discontinued !!

      Hey RIDGID....WHAT GIVES?????


      This is a follow up edit:

      I did go back to MowtownUSA and typed in part# 302151001
      This took me to a Ryobi spiral planer blade...This is [hopefully] a replacement that will also fit the R888
      18V planer. It's about $18.99 for a set of two plus shipping or about $27.99 total.
      I'll report back when I receive them to let you know if they fit.

        How am I to know what they cost? Besides, if they are out of production you can expect something to get to out of this world pricing.

          MowtownUSA Just informed me the order was cancelled as the part has been "discontinued?"

            I hate web sites that show parts 'available' only to get you to their site. Buncha sh1tbags...

                Look at it this way, thanks to Ridgid you have three planers that will never need blades again! Try'in to make a joke out of a serious situation. Can other blades be modified to fit? Very inconsiderate of Ridgid to leave the consumer hanging like this!

                  Especially since they still list that planer for sale on the orange website.
