Always wanted a planer and this is just the perfect choice.
Works very well, but neither the bag supplied or an extractor do much to reduce the waste chips thrown out.
A well balanced planer with very precise depth control, this i found handy for doing a shoulder cut , with the additional parts supplied for doing just that. The noise level is very low compared to some other planers i have used in the past. The two markers on the front plate is handy for showing you where the blade is actually cutting. Here are the specifications for the Bosch Professional GHO 15-82 Corded 110 V Planer:
- Powerful 600 W motor with 16,000 rpm for the best surface quality
- Fast work progress with continuously variable cutting depth setting up to 1.5 mm
- The fastest and least expensive blade changes on the market due to durable Woodrazor blades and the easiest possible adjustment
- 3 V-grooves for easy and flexible chamfering
- Workpiece is protected thanks to parking rest
Lovely bit of kit, very reasonably priced. One thing i wasn’t aware of though, it comes in a cardboard box instead of a plastic case.
This is the best of the cheaper range of diy woodworker and ‘general builder’ planers. Bosch, dewalt, makita and triton power tools are all good for the price and put up with a tough life so those are the makes we normally stick to. My husband’s criteria are: robustness and fit for purpose. The bosch planer fits the bill. To add to that, they can be repaired (provided they aren’t just worn out).

Fantastic i have a happy hubby that’s worth everything lol great value speedy delivery would def but from again.
Very smooth and powerful tool.
I’ve never owned an electric plane before, so i can’t compare it against any other model, but i’m hugely impressed with this. It’s easy to handle and manoeuvre, the cutting depth can be very finely adjusted, its bag collects dust very efficiently. I’ve just had to plane two solid doors to fit (both sides and top) and it made really light work of the job, achieving a lovely smooth edge and including adding a small bevel to the outer corners using one of the grooves set into the plate. A really lovely, excellent quality product.
