>I have the yorkcraft 20" planer and have run it quite a bit since I bought it in october and it is a very nice robust machine. I work in a pro shop and we have a large extrema planer that costed a mint and while it is capable to remove more material in a pass it can be compared to this machine in quality and finish. It is a bargain for the price and I really like the mobility the wheels provide and once it is lowered onto the base it will not move. It is pretty darn heavy tho and I needed an engine hoist to remove it from my truck. Good luck...
