Bosch PHO 20-82: Powerful and Compact

Like a sander, the planer is a tool for working on wooden surfaces. While a sander processes the wood using the grit on the sanding paper, a planer cuts off entire chips. In contrast to standard, hand-held planers, this Bosch power tool planer works with a blade drum that rotates at high speed. It provides fast and precise planing with high material removal rate.

The PHO 20-82 works in a typically Bosch way: fast, precise and efficient. The combined front handle and cutting depth adjustment knob provides a safe handling and precise cutting depth adjustment. The patented Wood Razor blade system ensures easy planing without having to exert force, the easiest and fastest blade changing method and high surface quality. The compact tool features a powerful 680 watt motor and weighs only 2.2 kg, which ensures low fatigue working over prolonged periods of time and under difficult working conditions. The PHO 20-82 can last up to 50 hours of uninterrupted running without a motor burnout. The PHO 20-82 copes with most planning tasks without problem. The no-load speed of the tool is 19,500 rpm.

The Bosch Planer PHO 20-82 features a cutting depth up to 2.0 mm and a rebating depth of maximum of 8 mm, making it ideal for projects such as:

  • Chamfering edges
  • Smoothing and planing doors
  • Rebating
  • Fitting windows, worktops and shelves
  • Removing paint

The rebating depth stop limits the planing depth during rebating, while the parallel guide limits the rebating width.

Patented Wood Razor System

The electronically balanced blade drum provides users with a higher cutting speed and a higher planing quality on the surface. The included blade is a high quality tungsten carbide blade, which lasts twice as long as a two-blade system as friction is reduced. Users are able to change the knife of the blade quickly and easily by loosening only two Allen screws.

Dust Extraction Facility

The dust extraction capability is via the integrated dust spout at the side of the machine. Simply connect a suitable vacuum cleaner via the optional adaptor (such as the Bosch PAS 11-21) or a dust bag (optional accessory) for effective dust management and a cleaner working environment at all times.

Auxiliary Handle

The adjustable auxiliary handle has two functions. Firstly, it provides safe handling of the planer and secondly it can be used to set the cutting depth step-by-step, even during planing.

Other Features

The PHO 20-82 features a V groove for easy chamfering or bevelling of edges. On the left side on the top of the tool users will find the ‘lock off’ button to prevent accidental start-up of the tool. The on/off switch can be easily reached and operated with only one finger. The automatically extending parking rest prevents damage to the workpiece or planer blade when putting the planer down

Box Contains

  • 1 x Bosch PHO 20-82 portable planer
  • 1 x dust extraction connection
  • 1 x instruction manual

    I needed a planer in a hurry (new belt unobtainable for my trusty old B&D), so picked up one of these PHO 20-82 with the 'extra' dust collection bag at my local B and Q. The cut is excellent, very smooth and predictable, provided one keeps the pressure on the trailing sole plate and follows the usual rules of standard Good Practice on wood with a good plane.

    However, as one might expect, it is very noisy, and ear protection is strongly recommended. So when using it I plug in my earbuds and listen to my music instead of the planer.

    The cut-depth adjustment knob is in precisely the right place for the front hand to hold when planing. Unfortunately I have not yet found any easy way to prevent myself inadvertently turning it while working - so upsetting the depth! As a consequence it forces one to either hold the plane awkwardly, and not use a knob in the perfect position, or to tape it up into one fixed setting and forgo the convenient adjustment!

    It copes well with hard wood such as Oak, and knotty wood such as Pine, the TC blade remaining sharp and true allowing me to trim a dozen new Oak doors to fit an old house much more quickly than I was with my old Stanley (which was quickly blunted by the Oak and needed constant re-sharpening).

    The 'extra' dust bag was well nigh useless and clogged very quickly, collecting only about two thirds of what was planed off, so I rigged up a proper vacuum extractor to it, and then collection was excellent, much better than the same vacuum system had been with the old B&D.

    If you are looking for a power planer for light to medium trade use or as a solid tool for home use, then you have found it in this Bosch PHO 20-82 Planer.
    It is very well put together and feels like it will last forever and yet, it is still not as heavy as many competitor products and that means you can use it for larger projects without causing discomfort.
    It has a good depth range and the waste exhaust can be set to left or right. On this particular model, it also had a good sized waste collection bag included which helps to keep the work area tidy.
    Although I havn't needed to yet, changing the planer blade looks quite easy with just two recessed allen screws to be released in order to change over the blades.
    A small range of additional accessories can be obtained to give the tool greater functionality and of course, being designed and manufactured by those efficient Germans at Bosch, you can rest assured that it will provide you with trouble free long service.
    If I do have one very slight quibble, it would be absolutely perfect with the addition of a storage/carry case to keep it in.
    However, even without a carry case, this is easily the best value power planer for the price.

    Vey satisfied with this planer the fact that you can change direction of shavings to left or right is very handy have tried it on various planing jobs & it works well with a comfortable hand position, I have not tried to change blade yet but am assured it is one of the easiest on the market also cheaper as it only has one blade, my old bosch planer was smaller & had two blades, All in all a good well made product % would recommend its purchase especially at amazon prices D Lloyd

    Performed really well, nice clean square cuts on the 4 doors I did. The blades look easy to change. Dust collection bag is ineffective.

    excellent product I had to hang 7 doors and due to the planer every door fitted to the precise adjustment with the adjustment knob which removed the correct amount of wood the only problem that occured was the fuse in the plug it wasn't pushed in correctly

    I bought this tool because I am renovating our house and required an electric planer to enable me to shave wood off doors etc with the miniimum of effort.
    This machine has done all that I have asked for it to do. I know it is more for a DIYer and is not a more expensive heavy duty planer but it has done a lot of work for me and has made my renovation work easier.
    Good buy and recommended.
