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:
The rebating depth stop limits the planing depth during rebating, while the parallel guide limits the rebating width.
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.
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.
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.
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
Excellent planer. Finished 5 doors in no time. Much lighter and easier to use than my old Black and Decker where the g force made level planing difficult. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Mr. Royston Pykett

Only ever used a manual plane before this purchase but having 2 doors to plane to size made it a worthwhile investment. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Chris Stringer
Had the same model machine for years, finally gave up the ghost when bearings seized up. Bought another because I was pleased with performance and reliability.Published 7 months ago by CJ
