I am looking at new 20″ planers and am narrowing down the list.
The Grizzly G1033 seems to have good reviews here on the Knots forum. It has 3HP and good customer service reputation.
I searched for info on the Jet 208-3 and found little, but it looks to be the same or similar machine, but with 5HP motor.
So final cost on the Jet is about $100 more, is it worth it for the extra 2HP? Any first hand experience with the Jet and/or their customer service?
Oddly the Powermatic 209 also looks to be same machine but had several neg comments in the archives. Built in casters would save on cost of mobile base putting this machine in the near price range also.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
