From The Manufacturer

The 6 Amp Hand Planer provides smooth cutting in hard materials. This planer has a dual-side dust extractor that allows the flexibility to place the dust extraction on either side of the tool to keep the work area clean. The overmold depth knob offers 10 positive steps which allow for better planer control and multiple depth control settings, along with 3 chamfering grooves for options on edge chamfering. An 11.5 in. cast aluminum shoe provides added control and better finish quality. Plus, the 5/64 in. depth-of-cut removes excess material in less time.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The angle of the handle is perfectly positioned to drive the plane forward while providing just the right amount of downward force to keep the tool level and straight.
Affordable and good value for money, Good depth of cut of 5/64 inch with 10 positive depth stops.
Easy to adjust, Has dual side dust extraction
I immediately noticed the PORTER-CABLE Hand Planer has easy to read and use controls, and a really comfortable, over molded ergonomic grip to reduce vibration.

What reviewers didn't like

About the only thing that comes up short on this tool is its cord – which is a scant 6 ft in length.
Kickstand is poorly designed, dust bag is small
