I have the General International helical head that is the sister to the Steel City. It is an excellent machine. I replaced the Ridgid with this machine (passed it along to a new woodworker friend). Both the Ridgid and the General are good planers… but the helical head is what made me go with the General. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them but I’d go with a helical head as they are the future of planers. I suspect Dewalt with come out with one soon too.
