I bet the Dewalt is a better machine, based on its popularity. It also has 2 speeds rather than 1. But it costs almost $200 more, so it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison. I have the Ridgid and like it a lot. It reliably does what it’s supposed to, long as you don’t take off too much at a time. Then again, I suspect that’s true of most other similar planers.
