Very sharp iron, skew the angle of attack, and really fine shavings will accomplish the task. Don’t be ham-fisted in your approach.
I don’t have either of those planes, but the higher angle bedding doesn’t seem to be a plus unless the wood is highly figured.
Both of those planes will need some tweaking as do all planes. If you’re not skilled at that………well, now is as good a time as any to learn.
For me, I’d go with the Stanley unless you can get an older Stanley for a bargain.
