I have the LV BU jointer and the LN Nº8 jointer, they have different applications in my opinion. With the Nº8 I can hog a lot of wood and flatten a surface in no time, it takes longer with the LN BU. So I use the LV Jointer as a “finishing” plane to take away any tear out the Nº8 might have left. In addition, a york pitch frog for the Nº8 is expensive with the LV I just change blades for difficult woods, but as I sad before it takes bit more time.

I bought an extra blade for the LN to try the back bevel trick instead of using a york pitch frog, but so far I am happy just using both planes.

As to the difference between LV and Woodriver, could not tell you, but if they are the same price, go with LV and proven reliability, IMO.
