The Rigid is a good planer. I have it and love it. I see it consistently priced at $400 at HD. My version has 2 cutting blades, but the newer edition has 3 cutters. Dust collection is fine using my 1hp jet collector on a 10’ run. I occasionally get snipe, but most days there’s none – usually it has to do with how I pull the feed from the planer.
