Their cheap No.2, 18" surfacer goes for over $16,000.00. the current next
size up is 25" and for about $25,000.00.
I think their stuff is built to last forever in a factory setting.
Leon had me in a panic for a sec. but I recall looking up the price and
it was no where near the price of a Northfield... I think it was around
$5000 new, but thats a vague recollection. It did look a lot like the
Northstate 20" planer so my guess is thats exactly what it was. It
looked like a great planer to me, but like so many great deals, I just
let it go bye...instead of buy... I think it weighed over 400 lbs so it
would have been tough getting it on and off my truck in one piece...
yeah, thats why I passed it up.

I hear ya'... :) (or, :( maybe is more apropos)
I posted in another similar thread not long ago of the chance years ago
to pick up the Powermatic Model 180 18" planer for $800 from shop when
upgraded and have been kicking self/regretting decision ever since...
LOL, did you think that there could possibly be any other out come after
only 20'? Get back with us after say a few thousand linear feet.
Now having said all that I originally bought a Ryobi AP10 planer in 1989
IIRC, it was the first of it's kind. I finally retired it 3 years ago and
got a 15" stationary Delta. If I were to buy a portable again, I'd get the
one you bought. You simply can't beat the warranty.
