For anyone who has a grizzly 15 or 20 in planer how well do they work? Would you recommend someone to buy one? I’m thinking of buying a 15 or 20 in with the spiral carbide cutter. Does this planer and cutter head give a good enough finsh to face glue boards together? Would you recommend a 15 or 20in? Ive made hundreds of projects and don’t recall a time where I needed 20 in planing. If I buy a new planer I’m going to sell my ridgid 13in planner and delta 12in (that I never liked) and probably my 10/20 jet drum sander also I never liked it.

I sold my dw735 and got a grizzly 15” with spiral head and can’t say enough good about it. I only used it for a couple months, so I can’t comment on long term reliability though. Compared to the dewalt, it’s amazingly quiet and leaves a great finish. I no longer worry about the grain and just feed boards through. As for 15” vs 20”, that’s up to the work you do. I very very rarely would have use for a 20”, so saved the $$$.

Have your say...
