Sometimes the too good to be true are really true.
I toasted my Delta 22-580 lunchbox planer about a week ago (7 years old) and needed to find another one as I have some projects due. I had my mind set on a larger 3hp model such as a grizzly or a jet when the time came, but timing was terrible right now. Wife and I have been paying out the noise lately on anything and everything (repairs, taxes, kids, etc.). I was going to feel pretty guilty even pulling the trigger on another portable one...that was until I found a 3HP delta for $575 new in the box!
These guys buy over stock\pallet stuff. I think they had 5-6 more after I picked up mine today. I had to drive a 100 miles, but I think it was worth it. The catch is - its the power head only; there is no stand. They are still on the metal shipping pallets from Delta.
Give them a call. Ask for Chris.
Here is mine....2 hours out of the box.
