This planer is the perfect size for getting wood to the thickness I need for Ruger Mark pistol grip panels after 'resawing" with my GRIZZLY band saw.

Great product, 6/7/2018

Good, low cost planer 5/23/2018

While this is a very good, economical planer, I don't think I'd give it a five star rating - four and a half stars would be more appropriate as there are a couple things (the bed, the sheet metal parts) that I would prefer to be more solid. That said, I'm happy to have it - it beats hand planing or carting material to someone else's shop. Very good price. Now all I need is a similarly economical, wide jointer.

Love this planer. Planned several board feet of oak. Great job!!! The Planer plowed right through it. Set up was easy. 5 Stars!!

Good product for the money 5/3/2018

I had the model GO832 on order/backorder for 2 months and couldn't get a commitment from Grizzly when order would be filled. So I substituted and received model GO505 and was shipped promptly.
I got it to mill heavy pieces of walnut for fireplace mantle, bench seats and shelve boards for our new construction . I've only run about 100 board ft. through it but the unit has performed nicely with what I've put through it. If you need planer for making your living you would do well to look at the large heavy units but for homeowner hobbyist it gives you bang for your buck.

I am Glad that I got such a good planer It works very well

Runs good! 2/27/2018

Only reason it s not a 5 Star review is because I also got the dust port as well. It hangs a bit low, recommend a homemade dust/chip port. Could easily fab a better one and plan too. Overall I am pleased with the unit. If I knew tht the 3 blade u it was 10-20 $more would have bought it.

I bought this to replace an old craftsman planer that the motor had gone out on ....looks like it will do the job....seams to have good power.

planer 12/26/2017

this is a great planer for the money....much better than other brands in the price range....would definitely recommend

Another great product!! 12/23/2017

The day this arrived I unpacked it and put it to work! Great machine for a shop with limited space! It turned good ol scrap Missouri oak into a beautiful vegetable storage bin.


Thus is a good product. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is sometimes the wood has a problem getting pushed through the planer and needs assistance. Good product though.

Works like a dream. I had a Delta 12 planer and the motor blew out 1 month after the warranty ran out. It didnt have a good dust collector with the opening only about 1/2 opening to a 4 hose.
I love my new Planer. It has a large opening to the 4 dust collector and it planes like a dream. My cherry coffee table came out amazing. I will be replacing some other of my Delta products with Grizzly.

Super planer 12/17/2017

Haven't used it much, but are tickled with the results so far


Use my G0505 every chance i get does a very foog job .. I use manly air dried lumber from red oak ro walnut it looks like it came from a lumber yard

Have had this machine for years!! 11/16/2017

I bought this machine many years ago. It works great. I have planed many types of wood with it. Mostly Oak and Walnut. I have no complaints. Great Machine!! UPDATE.. My old planer finally gave it up. I used this machine for about 13 years. I felt I got my money out of it. So I purchased another one just like it. I shopped around. Checking out other makes of planers. I just felt no one else makes a machine that can compare with this one.

EXCELLENT Planer 9/29/2017

I have had my planer 5 years. Absolutely love it. Does everything I've ever called on it to do. Low maintenance, easy enough to move around when needed and performs without fail.

Warren W
Satisfied!! 8/4/2017

I knew this was a very good product. I have see one similar to this one on action.

Works great 7/1/2017

Works great. Does the job as advertised. It does an excellent job of smoothing rough cut lumber.

Sound product. 6/7/2017

I bought this product about 6 weeks ago and have used it several times. I am pleased with it's performance and the results. I would recommend 2 changes: make it about 40-50 lbs. heavier to cut down on vibration, and make the dust collection adapter fit better and mount easier. I am pleased with this product and would buy it again.

Great product 6/5/2017

I bought this product a month ago and have put it through its pace running a lot of reclaimed material and beams. It was up for the challenge the only problem that I had was it seems to be a small nick in one of the blades other than that I am extremely happy with this purchase.


I have limited space so this planer is the right size. I have used the same model for the last 12 years and really make them work.


I bought a planner and love it .i have other tools also.never had any problems with any of them . It s nice to have the quality products you can afford

I simply love the simplicity of this unit! 6/2/2017

Works well 6/1/2017

Superb Quality! 6/1/2017

I bought this a few weeks ago and right out of the box I was super pleased with it. Anything that I have thrown at it so far has not been a problem. I have used almost every brand out there such as Dewalt, Porter Cable, Craftsman and Makita so far Grizzly has out performed them all. I do a lot of re purposing and up-cycling with lumber and as long as it is clean I have no complaints about this planer.

I purchased this some time ago to replace my 12.5 inch planer molder I have had for many years. The old planer molder broke a shaft and several parts were damaged. I don't do as much woodworking as I used to so I decided to get the smaller portable unit to make more space in my workshop. I just set it up a few days ago and started planing rough sawed cherry and walnut lumber. It worked well but seemed under powered. Planing an 8 x 1 inch board set for a 1/32 cut the planer choked down too easily. Actually the width of the cut was only 3 inch wide to start the planing because the board was somewhat bowed. A significant increase in powder would make it a much better planer.

Great Planer 2/19/2017

This Planer works great, a little noisey, i think it will quiet down once we throw in our carbide blades. A much better planner than a rigid or anything you'd get out of the box store, and it's for a fair reasonable price.

James K
I think it will be great. 2/2/2017

Have not used it much yet, as waiting for cut lumber to dry. Looks and runs great. Well satisfied. Arrived promptly after ordering it. Set up was a snap.

Bobby C

I bought this a month ago and it has done what I needed it to. For this size of my home shop it is heavy enough and also light enough to stay still and move around. Only time will tell about the moving parts.

Edward H

Can't beat it for the price. Usable right out of the box no adjustments were required. If your considering buying it, be sure to get the dust hood I'm shocked how well it contains the dust.

Good stuff Maynard 1/26/2017

Awesome product 1/26/2017

happy i found this company, i have been wanting a planer for some time, i just never found one of my liking until i stumbled across a youtube video of this one, what these 2 guys put this thru and it just kept on working was quite impressive, this sealed the deal, plus i got it on sale under 300.00, and was even able to finance it. it is all steel construction, it not really loud, and it does a awesome job on making reclaimed wood look new again. i will be buying a lathe from them as well. thank you for making awesome product.

Great tool 1/26/2017

Love my thickness planer! The end finish is so good that my projects take little prep before finishing.

great product!! 1/26/2017

I bought this planer as a birthday gift for my boyfriend and he loves it

Same reason. Still setting up my shop. 1/25/2017

Good deal 12/26/2016

I bought one ten years ago and have been very happy with it. The brushes finally need replacing, didn't have time to deal with it, so I bought another one and order the brushes. When I have time, I will replace the brushes and pass it on to my son. Great deal for a small, inexpensive planer.

great product 11/1/2015

bought this product a couple weeks ago after the gear box went out of my rigid planer. working good with oak wood with some snipe. if used as directed it is a very good machine. would recommend this machine so far to anyone looking to buy
