Insert cutterhead cuts great, stays sharp longest

High Points:
↑ The high-speed-steel insert cutters showed the longest durability in the test of 11 planers, and each insert has four cutting edges.
↑ The dust hood includes 2-1/2" and 4" ports on opposing sides.
↑ Preset thickness stops were accurate and needed no adjustment.
↑ It comes with a test-best 5-year warranty.
Low Points:
↓ Height-adjustment handwheel is stiff and difficult to adjust.
↓ The cutterhead carriage lock is difficult to lock and unlock.
More Points:
→ The depth scale is accurate, but the viewfinder makes it difficult to read.
