"Bought this Titan Planer to replace and old Black & Decker unit that I have been nursing along for a good number of years now. Being a long standing fan of Titan products I'm glad I choose yet another Titan power tool to add to my collection. On first inspection I was very pleased with the feel of the planer and the fact that it came with the necessary accessories all neatly stored in the protective plastic case. The first task I gave my new planer was to smooth off the edges of a builders plank for a DIY project I'm currently working on. I have to say it completed the task with ease, much better than my old planer, and the finish was superb. The planer was used straight out of the box with no adjustment required, but because there are a few posts on here stating that the blades where out of alignment I did check the alignment before use. All in all I am very pleased with my new purchase in every way. Can't comment on reliability though because I've only just bought it. That's the only reason I've given it one star in that category."
"I have had another manufacturers plane before I bought the Titan model ( I will not return to them ).This plane is absolutely superb in operation, it is extremely comfortable to hold and operate, leaves an excellent finish and has the ability to take off minute amounts or lots when needed. This is the third Titan product I have bought, without a doubt I will end up with a workshop full of Titan products. I would recommend this planer to both d.i.yers and professionals alike."
"It has taken me a few minutes to fix a couple of doors and this machine has been superb. On top of that, it has saved me probably £ 100 on a carpenter's call out charge. Very easy to use, the proof is that I have used it and the job looks perfect."
"This should aptly be renamed to TITAN-IC. Its overall cutting power, features, handling comfort and very affordable price gives it titanic features compared to other larger brands with three times the price tag!. Not that I feel I would need to cut to a depyh of 3mm in one pass, it is nice to know this mchine can handle it. Also the carry case is an excellent feature which many top brands fail to supply at what seems to me to be a minimal cost to produce. .....and finally, replacement TCT double edge blades at only around £6, makes this a very affordable machine all-round! One of my better buys!"
"I did a fair bit of research on planers, needing one on occasion for various home DIY needs. I did not want to spend a fortune. The Titan was excellent, did exactly what it should. I have only used it a couple of times, to fit a custom built desk to a wall, but it worked really well. My only slight criticism is that the dust bag could be larger, and there was still a fair amount of dust generated that was not collected. But overall, this is a great purchase, and I would recommend it. Only time will tell how reliable it turns out to be. The carry case is a nice extra."
"used to help make a stupid amount of fence panels fit concrete post system . could not of done the job with out it , its sturdy , not too heavy, easy to use and a nicely balanced machine . leaves a good finish as its got a good bit of grunt and power behind it... well worth it even if we just use it for this one job"
"Fantastic product, does exactly what it's designed for. Nice clean finish, easy to use. Dust bag could do with being a little bigger. A lot easier, quicker and simpler than a traditional plane. A massive time and effort saver. Seems reliable so far...will see how it goes in the coming months."
"Bought this to plane some sticky doors in the house. At a previous house this took all day with a hand planer. This is easy to use, neat and really fast. Bought it for DIY use and it works brilliantly and is great value. Have no qualms about buying Screwfix's own brand because they are excellent."
"I've used plenty of electric planers over the years, and until now the only one I thought was really good was a £220+ Makita.
But, this little beauty is amazing for the price. I bought it to plane 14mm off each side of a hardwood door (yes, I know, but the customer bought the wrong door and just wanted it hung regardless) and it handled the job admirably. Easy to handle and gives a smooth finish.
The only real negatives are the small bag and, I'll be honest, at it's maximum 3mm cut, hardwood does give it slightly too much to do, but at 2mm or less it's excellent.
Reliabilty? Who knows, not me, yet. Although I'd be happy with a couple of years for this sort of money."
"Absolutely delighted with this superb tool. Has features you would expect to pay twice as much for. Precise cutter (carbide) adjustment combined with fully machined base plate results smooth operation and smooth finish. Moderate noise level. Only con - chip collector so small so as to be a joke. Almost glad the old B&D packed up!"
"Got one of these, bought it entirely on review reccomentdations and I`m very pleased with it. It is a substantial unit, robust and the cutting blade is infinitely adjustable. Lets face it, most of us just want to take half an inch off the bottom of a door or garden gate, well this is the tool for you. And for the price? Why pay £100 or £200 ? The saw dust collection bag is rather small but this tool really gets through some cutting. Emptying it gives you a break anyway. In short, buy it!"
