I should have bought one of these a long time ago!
Originally I purchased a corded Bosch 6-Amp planer because I thought the cordless one would be too heavy and awkward, boy was I wrong, turns out this cordless planer is lighter than the corded one! (Especially with the slim pack battery) So convenient, just grab it and go! Since I've bought this and started using it on everything imaginable, I don't know how I ever lived without one! This is now one of my MUST HAVE tools!

Best feature over others has to be the switchable chip blow hole, with the flick of a lever it switches chips to blow out either right or left side of the tool, this is really great right now as I'm using this up over my head in awkward positions to bevel and fit 3/4" OSB Roofing panels & It's very useful to be able to blow the chips out either side of the tool!
