Having just bought the Grizzly 13” a couplke months ago, I think it really is going to come down to what your working stock is primarily going to be. The smaller bench top/portable planers do very well with smaller stock and I would argue, most reputable brands perform pretty much the same with smaller (length) stock. The key is finding the bench/portable planer that handles longer stock with as little end snipe as possible.

Since I didn’t read every comment, I hope I didn’t just needlessly repeat stuff. I was really just responding to the original question as further consideration for your purchase.
