Note that the lever on the right side is used to set the speed. Push IN for fast, Pull OUT for slow.

Push-Pull Lever

Also, a note on the dust hood says "This Dust Collector works a lot better if all the other gates are closed".

Dust Collector Hood

Reminder: Of all the woodworking gear, the planer sends the largest volume to the dust collector. If doing a larger amount of planing, keep a close eye on the blue bin under the dust collector and empty it (a 2-person job) if you can see any 'not swirling' dust/chips through the viewing window.
