The M18 3-1/4 in. Planer delivers unmatched depth control and powerful stock removal for quick and precise material removal on soft or hard woods. The Planer’s powerful motor allows the user to remove up to 5/64 in. in a single pass for increased productivity. The depth adjustment knob’s 20 locking positions allows for multiple depth settings and precise depth control. In addition the depth adjustment knob does not rotate past the 0 or 5/64 setting which allows users to quickly identify at what depth they are cutting without needing to re-zero the dial. The M18 Planer also provides up to a 27/64 in. rabbet cut capacity offering users more depth of cut when making shiplap joints. A left or right chip ejection feature allows users to aim shavings away from their eyes or finished surfaces; increasing safety, productivity and accuracy.

- Chip ejection switch: allows users to select left or right chip exhaust
- Spring-loaded kickstand: prevents blade from marring finished surfaces
- Dual blade cutting head: 2 reversible carbide blades provide a smooth finish
- Bevel/edge guide: allows users to make straight, rabbet and bevel cuts up to a 45° angle
Works very well. Battery lasts approximately 15 minutes using a 4.0 ah battery pack.
Great piece if Milwaukee Equipment to add to my arsenal
I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to buy one of these. It’s nice having a high-quality product without a cord. This is the best planer I’ve ever used.
Worked as well as expected, I wish it came with a dust bag tho as to not get clippings all over the place when using it.
Amazing like everything else in this line. The power for being a battery powered tool is hands down amazing.
Great planer, the depth setting is very accurate, and it runs super smooth. I have used it only on softwoods, but it goes right through them like butter. Very solid tool just like every other Milwaukee tool I own. It does get very messy, so I would recommend a dust collecting system to be used with it though.
Everything is very good except it gets scratch so easy on the bottom place.
Light and quiet. Another great tool by Milwaukee
Awesome planer, very powerful and solid. My only complaint is that it does not include a bag to capture the wood shavings. They basically spray 3-5 feet out the side.
Love this tool. Took it out of the box and it was ready to go. Perfect condition. Planed 5 doors and some drawers and this thing works great. Plenty of power. Curbside pick up was fast.
Very surprised in how strong and smooth it works. I was skeptical in buying it for several weeks. Now I wish I couldn’t done the purchased sooner to make my work easier. Well built and strong motor, but the best thing is it runs with the same batteries my other Milwaukee M18 tools.
Works very good vacuum attachment was awesome and impressive dust free if I could send you a picture and show you
Another quality product!
Cleaner works great I love the fact that you can change the direction of the exhaust
PROS: The planer comes out of the box ready to go to work! The Planer is easy and comfortable to use, and adjust.Cons: No battery or hard case included. Even a carry bag would be nice. Must use a competitor’s replacement blades.This planer holds the standard of all Milwaukee tools and built for people in the trades to use every day. ALL day.
Great tool. Love how great and smooth it works. Only complaint is that it doesnt come with a bag to catch the shavings
Just thickness planed 32′ of 2×12 used the cordless planer for edge planing and it left a nice edge in just a few passes…gouged end grain by not lifting at end pass but have done that with my corded. This seemed faster. Fyi at 0. Some material still removed not much but not 0. I not going to carry this all the time as its more of a specialty tool, should be handy on doors and moldings fast and smooth and no cord. I would recommend this to someone with milwaukee tools replacing a corded planer
Fast and easy to use
