This well balanced planer is part of the Makita cordless 18V family. Based on the mains power model and giving the same performance, it has a blade width of 82mm and will plane up to 2mm in a single pass with a maximum rebate depth of 9mm. Depth adjustment is accurately controlled with a large front grip handle with scale adjusting in 0.01mm increments. The blades are protected when not in use by a small foot that drops from the baseplate lifting them clear of a surface and potential damage. Supplied as a body only, this tool takes Makita 18V Li-Ion batteries.
Please note: model number starting with letter 'D' has a 'star' imprint on the connector plate enabling full communication with a Makita battery also with a 'star'.

ExcellentHave been using a 110v Hitachi planer for years and has been a faithful servant. Decided to splash out and get the Makita cordless and have never looked back. Ok so I did have to buy a dust bag as an extra but the pro's outweigh the con's. The safety lever on the underside of the planer gets a little getting used to but a fine addition to prevent accidental damage.

Good tool but no chip bag, why?A lovely machine but why make me buy a dust bag as an overpriced extra. I use the bag on my 240v every time, I see it as a necessity, it saves mess and time, especially if I am working in a clean environment. This kind of profit making puts me off Makita, on top of that you have the extra nuisance of having to wait as Axminster do not stock the bag.
