Makita’s 5-inch Concrete Planer (model PC5001C) combines power and ease-of-use features for improved performance. It is engineered for smoothing concrete surfaces and leveling concrete seams, so it’s ideal for masons, concrete finishers, city maintenance crews, and more.
The PC5001C is powered by a 10 AMP motor with soft start technology for smooth start-ups. The constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load to complete the most challenging jobs, and the electronic current limiter helps protect the motor from overloading.
The PC5001C includes a removable dust shroud cap that allows the tool to plane in corners and against walls. The PC5001C weighs 8.9 lbs., is only 17" long. It has an ergonomic soft grip and large two-finger trigger switch with lock-on function for greater comfort, as well as a top handle for improved handling. The dust bag is easily installed and removed, with a dust collecting vacuum port for cleaner operation.
