Expert Review

Makita shows off their manufacturing quality in the design of this tool by using the same cutterhead and same blades present in the KP0800K corded planer. It has dual carbide blades, which are reversible to help extend their service life. By using the same cutterhead, Makita ensures you’ll get the same quality with the cordless tool as you do with the corded one.

The cutterhead operates at 14,000 RPM and will make cuts up to 5/64 deep. The depth adjustment knob is click set, ranging from 0 to 5/64. Blade changes are designed to be easy, with minimal blade adjustment. There’s even an electric brake on the motor, to stop the tool quickly when the trigger is released.Rating: 5/5
