Pit Bull Power Planer

pit_bull_planer.jpgIf you're looking for a power planer on a tight budget, look no further. Pit Bull, a company we've never heard of (and can't find any information on), has recently released this one which is currently selling for the extremely low price of $16.50.

This planer has 2.6 amps, a small number when compared the big name planers which are usually above 6 amps. But, seeing as this tool is being sold for under $20, it’s really unfair to compare it to a Bosch. At the price it’s being sold for, if it even works you’re already ahead of the game.

We doubt that something this inexpensive is capable of the finest micro-tuned finish work, but if you only use a planer once or twice a year, or if you just have one or two projects in mind, why bother shell out $150 just so you can have that nice name brand case collecting dust in your garage?

The planer comes with a rabbeting fence and a sharpening holder.

If this kind of deal is right up your alley, make sure to check out GMC’s $10 Detail Sander as well.

If anyone out there buys the Pit Bull Planer, drop us a line and let us know how it is and we’ll post up your review.

I have one of the Pit Bell electric planers, model CHIG5317, Had been sitting up for some time. When I used it the belt broke. I borrowed my neighbors and the same thing happened. The belt freezes to the pully when not used on a regular basis. Have searched everywhere on line for a replacement belt with no luck. Would love to know where these belts can be found.

This is the worst product I have ever purchased anywhere. It is my fault, should have known by the price! The first time I turned it on it chipped the blade and locked up (I have used planers since 1981) so it was not set up wrong. It cost too much to ship back so I was stuck!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars It's Cheap And That's It's Only Advantage, August 14, 2007
By Orion E. Hubbard (Portland, Oregon United States) - See all my reviews

Like the other customer, I bought this without seeing a review and I am sorry I wasted my money on this piece of junk. The "adjustment" knob doesn't adjust anything and the instruction manual seems to have been writen by someone who didn't speak English as a first-- or even a second--language. This product's only advantage, if you can call it that, is the fact that this planer is cheap. It does it's job, but not as well as a more expensive planer could do.

Keep away from this tool. Save your money for a better planer. Comment Comment | Permalink | Was this review helpful to you? Yes No (Report this)

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Junk - DO NOT PURCHASE, August 14, 2007
By Hanson (USA) - See all my reviews

When I ordered this planer. No other reviews had been posted. I only needed to trim up a couple of doors. The product arrived in substandard packaging, the knob adjusting the front depth does not work, so it will not cut wood at all. The instructions are faded, and in broken english - useless.
