Triton TPL180 7'' Triple-Blade Planer
If you regularly work with heavy timbers or extra-thick dimensional lumber, you'll immediately see the usefulness of the Triton TPL180. Rather than attempting to feed a heavy workpiece through a conventional planer, you take a lightweight planer to the workpiece, saving your back and a lot of effort. It's also ideal for planing wide table tops or surfacing preassembled furniture for refinishing. With its patented, 3-blade design and 10-position depth control knob, you'll get precise material removal with minimal setup time. The front handle with soft grip is adjustable for added comfort. Ultra-wide 7'' planing width and the ability to remove up to 5/64'' in a single pass. Includes wrench, dust connector, set guide fence and three 7'' blades.

Ergonomics is superb for the weight.
I could find flaws with any tool, but at this price point its hard to nit pick this tool.
I would suggest to maker, make sure the rear kick stand senses forward motion better, as it often sticks...but I resolved that with a forward motion when I sit the rear down on the work piece. not a huge deal.
If your trying to strip a large top, and or level it, forget sanding, that comes after you plane it...
Even on the lowest bite setting, it still leaves trails, but that is to be expected.. So sand with 40 Grit on first past to rid those...
Nice to see Triton making specialty tools that often very few companies make...
I am now a Triton fan...

My only complaint is that the dust collection adapter that comes with it does not fit the dust port. It's too small and falls out as soon as you put it in. I had to do some modification with electrical tape to make it wedge in.

This planer is a great addition to your tools, only if you work with large timbers. The planer itself is very big, and a touch heavy.
I cannot see this being your every day, go to planer unless you work on timberframing, logs, etc.
If you need a go to electric planer, get a 3 1/4" model.
