[Home Depot] Rigid Octane 3-1/4 Hand Planer ($104 - 50% off)

Home Depot is clearing out the Rigid Octane Hand Planer.
Shows as full price online but I got it in store (Orillia, ON) for $104.
Saw it last week for about $150 but was marked down even more.

I got one, works well with a 4.0 or bigger battery. At this price it's a good deal. I believe I paid around this with the free battery return truck.

YMMV depending on location. I've seen it for $146, whereas other stores have it for as low as $83.

So I saw one for $98 which is around the regular price of the ryobi. No idea if it's much better.

It's also wild that these cost the same or at times less than some hand planes.

Was $146 a few days ago at my local Home Depot. Was there tonight to replace an Octane Jigsaw that died within the first 90 days and saw they had marked it down even more.

Anything in the Octane lineup is going to be better than Ryobi (even the HP series).
My guess is that a new planer will be launched with the new Mitre/Table saws that are coming out. Rigid had to switch suppliers and rumour is that they are using Delta for their saws and planers.
The new mitre and table saws are already out in the US. Guessing that a bench planer and hand planer will be announced soon seeing as they've been clearing out all of the older ones.

The reason I got it is because I wanted a planer in my tool box and a decent non powered planer would have cost almost just as much.
This still won't replace a a jointer plane as the sole plates on this unit aren't that long. But it'll certainly replace a standard #4 plane.

Agreed...for the most part. Not everything Octane is better than Ryobi HP. P262 definitely beats R86011B, for example. It might be by virtue of being the newer tool, but it's still better. Not a huge gap in performance but it comes out on top plus it's a smaller and lighter tool.

That's just one example I know of, there certainly could be others.

For this comparision though, yes definitely the Octane brushless tool is going to be significantly better than a cheap low-end Ryobi.

This is one of those tools I don't need very often at all, but I curse myself for not having when I need it. I hope I can get one.

I bought this two weeks ago for $146+tax even though Stocktrack says $209. After seeing this post today, I went back to HD to get a price adjustment. One guy I asked said that they did not have any in stock and that they do have them at other locations for $109. I then went to customer service for a price adjustment and the price came up at $83.60! Bonus!

Did you get this online? How did you get that price? I managed to puck on up from the Halifax store but it was for $104. Still not a bad deal but the extra 20% would have been even better.
