It was $202.27 in December 2019 at Lowes. I bought it on 12/13/19 for that price. So, while this may be low compared to Amazon, it is not a record price at Lowes.

Very bad experience with Wen products. Hesitant to pull the trigger.

Do you like it? I want the Dewalt 3cutter but am having a hard time justifying double the cost...

Are coupons working again at Lowes? I thought They'd been essentially eliminated except for some in store only coupons.

Same boat here. Plus I figure resale of the dewalt is probably 300 where this may be hard to resell if you want to upgrade

I've had this model for the last couple of years and it works extremely well for a planer in this price range. Obviously it has its limitations but then again it is pretty cheap. If you take your time and set it up properly and take small cuts, I think you might like it. Snipe is an issue for almost all these lunchbox planers and this one is no different. The replacement blades are cheap and easy to replace.However, I am upgrading mine, not because there was something wrong but because I have outgrown it. I would give it 5 stars from my personal experience and wouldnt hesitate to rebuy it if I needed another one.

I am actually trying to buy. Looks to be a decent deal. On Lowe's site says it available for shipping. Once I add to my cart and view in cart it displays unavailable for shipping.
Anyone else having the issue. I am located in northern ga.
Brickseek shows none in any stores around here which is fine. I was planning on having it shipped. But no dice.
Was having issue last night when deal posted and continuing to have the issue.

Does the same for me in my test just now. Just get HD to price match and order it from them if it's giving you issues. They will probably give you hassle because it's not available to ship if you add it to your cart, but I doubt most customer service folks will take it that far. They'll just see the page that says it's ready to ship and not look any deeper. It's not an item Lowe's stocks in any store from my experience, nor Home Depot.

Nope. Guess the OP hasn't tried to find/use one lately. The only ones you can still find only work in store, and since this isn't a normally stocked item in any of their stores, I don't see how that would work. Unless you can order for store pickup and get them to adjust it once it comes in, coupons are a no go for this.

Looks strikingly similar to the Bauer thickness planer that Harbor Freight sells. That one is $269.99 with the best coupon available at the moment. I have the Bauer and it works fine for me for the price.

I purchased their track saw and tracks last year. I had trouble with the rubber blade guard peeling off of the tracks. They shipped me replacements no questions asked within 2 days of me contacting them via email. I even purchased two more tracks and when I had the same trouble with those they shipped me a replacement plus extras in case it continued to peel after replacement. Though this indicates a problem with QC it does show that they care about customer service after the sale and will stand by their product.
