Bosch GHO 26-82 2.6mm Planer 240V
This has been a great buy, being a joiner doing mainly finishing work I couldnt ask for any more. Comes in sturdy kit box, left /right chip ejection, dust bag, parking stand and a decent length of flex fitted. Flex is rubberised not that plastic type that splits after six months. Added bonus only uses single blade. Excellent. Keep it up bosch.

very pleased with this planer, have used friends before so went for this one when my old old needed replacing. Accurate and easy to use, good price, no cons really. only 3 stars for reliability as it's new but as we all know the bosch stuff goes on and on

Does exactly what you want
This is light enough to be used accurately at different angles, which is very useful. It produces a good clean finish and the depth adjustment is very solid. I wish I'd bitten the bullet and bought it earlier.

Makes planing easy
I really like this tool . The dust extraction works well with my old GAS 25 extractor . This is the 1st electric planer I have owned ,so I cannot say much as nothing to compare it to . I feel the right angle guide could be better though , as It only covers the bit of the blade you are not using when it is fitted to the left side of the tool . . . Could be sturdier too given this is a proffesional tool Overall a good tool though which I would not be without , the depth of cut seems accurate which takes some of the guess work out of the job in hand . Mine was made in Malaysia .
Too early to review relability , but it's worked faultlessly in the 3 weeks i have had it .
