Key Features


The Jellas is a powerful 240V 850W planer , delivering up to 16,500 rpm and is able to plane 3mm. This is a good depth of cut that you will find in many planers on the market.

The 750W motor is designed to deliver rapid performance without being too heavy or bulky to handle easily and this unit is on the lightest end of the scale.


The planer delivers fast stock removal at a width of 82mm and will remove 3mm at a time. 82mm is a pretty standard size and you wouldn't really need anything wider than this. It's ideal for trimming doors and other surfaces leaving a very smooth finish.

There are 3 chamfering grooves in the front shoe making precision fitting jobs very easy and 3mm is above average.

Dust extraction

The dust bag catches 90% of the dust and is easy and clean to empty. The bag is a bit bulky to carry around but its totally worth the hassle as there is very little cleaning up to be done after.

You can also connect this directly into a vacuum and I much prefer this option, though they do supply the bag with this model so you wouldn't have to buy it seperately. If you are going to connect a vac to one of these machines we don't recommend that you use a home version. It's always best to have a good quality HD shop vacuum.

A very quick video review

We have looked over all the video reviews and found this great short presentation on this Jellas power tool. It gives you an instant idea of what to expect as well as telling you all the features and spec in and easy to understand format.

I hope you enjoy watching it as I always think its much better to see a tool in action rather than just reading about it or seeing pictures. This guy is particularly good at explaining the features of the cordless planer and he is well known for demonstrating tools.

Our Verdict on the Jellas Planer

An excellent tool that is getting some of the best reviews and ratings that I have ever seen. There have been hundreds of buyers and this is really a good tool.

It will do the job as well as any other planer and is really a pleasure to work with. Light, flexible and has plenty of power.

You can see by the price that this isn't the most expensive but it works very well and I can easily recommend it for regular use.

If you don't think this is the model for you the have a look at our Best Electric Planer UK Page so some alternatives or you could also check out the Best Cordless Planers as well.
