I don’t see where you’re talking about a Lobo anywhere. I see this:

Ok so can anyone suggest any one of these. I looked up the lobo and cant find much info.

I’ll tell you now, it’s very hard to find 15-20” planers around here for $600. That Delta was the first one I’ve seen in that price range anywhere near me (central Mississippi) and I usually search a 6 hour drive radius (about 400 miles).

If I would’ve been looking when that posted, I would’ve drove down there on Sunday without any further questions. You can’t even get a Dewalt 734 or 735 for that kind of money.

I’ll keep on the lookout. If you’re not looking for a huge floor model, the Dewalt 735+shelix (about $1000 together) is a good combo and I think Grizzly makes a lunchbox planer with helical cutter for about $350.
