Found a Delta 22-560 thickness planer for sale on craigslist for $200. It appears to be in great condition. Per the seller, its seen very little use, cuts smooth that sanding is barely needed. Sharp knives, rollers in great shape, brand new belt, and motor is smooth.

Just not sure if its worth $200. I've heard some bad things about this model planer. Looking for advice.
I wouldn't buy it. I bought one new and had a lot of trouble with it from day one falling apart. To get some relief I started putting it back together with threadlock. Then the last time I worked on it I discovered the gears which operate the feed rollers had several teeth broken off. I'm the only one that has ever used the planer so I know it wasn't abused. Then if you run it very long it gets very hot. Even if parts were still available for it I'm no longer going to try to fix it. I have another planer now and only use the Delta with small or thin wood.

I appreciate the response. Your response is similar to some of the other answers I found for this model. I'm thinking I'm better off saving/spending an extra couple hundred and getting the Dewalt DW735 or DW734.
I've never used either of the Dewalt planers but they have a good reputation. I will probably buy one when I retire the Delta planer.
