Ryobi Planer Sale at the Home Depot

I am on the Home Depot Email list. They had the Ryobi AP1301 13" portable planer on the ad today for $199. The Home Depot Web site still listed it at $229. So I printed out the email and took it in to the local depot, which had the planer listed at $229 on the shelf. They honored the $199 price on the email, however we did have a chuckle since the ad lists it as a "cordless" planer.

Let us know how the AP-13 works out. I just turned my old AP-12 over the our son after about 14-15 years of use and some abuse. The AP-10's and -12's were great machines. I repaired the gearbox casting and did a general recondition on the AP-12 before I gave it away, but I suspect he will still get a lot of good use out of it.

I was wondering how many feet it could plane on a charge. :)
Actually the power cord is included, replacement blades are $30.
