Description Specifications
Dewalt DW735X. Features: Powerful 15 amp, 20,000 RPM motor (10,000 RPM cutterhead speed) handles larger cuts in wider materials with ease. Three knife cutter-head delivers 30% longer knife life and makes knife change faster and easier. Two-speed gear box allows users to change feed speed to optimizing cuts per inch at 96 or 179 CPI. 19-3/4 in. cast-aluminum base is 2X more rigid than a standard 10 in. base and folding tables. Fan-assisted chip ejection vacuums chips off at the cutter head and exhausts them out of the machine. Automatic carriage lock reduces the movement that causes snipe without the need for manual engagement by the user. Material removal gauge and extra-large thickness scale deliver accurate cuts with every pass. Extra-large turret depth stop allows users to return to most frequently used thicknesses with ease.

The DEWALT® 13 In. Three knife, two speed thickness planer is built to handle large cuts in wide materials with strength and minimum hassle. Its two speed gear box maximizes flexibility, allowing users to optimize cuts per inch at 96 or 179. With a fan-assisted chip ejection system that vacuums chips off the cutter head, you can be confident of a clear workspace. The three knife cutter-head simplifies knife changing, saving time. A 19-3/4 In. cast aluminum base is twice as rigid as a standard 10 In. base, providing the toughness you need, regardless of the job.

plain and simple

Ordered this for my furniture business. This machine has performed quite well so far. Every piece put through this planer has has ran exceptionally well with no snipe. Blades are fresh and crisp. above 1/8th. Planer is hooked up to a Grizzly dust collector Model # G8027 . Both perform very well together.

Disappointed

This planer worked great when brand new, but 4 months after I bought it, with minimal use, it no longer wants to feed the material. I bought this as an "upgrade" to my old DW734, but that old work horse never gave me this problem, even after years of use and thousands of BF planed. I have read that the rollers on the 735 don't work well in cold conditions, but my shop is consistently at 60 degrees or higher. I did go through the trouble of cleaning the rollers and waxing the bed and I will reverse the knives as recommended, but I don't think this is something that should need to be done to such a new machine that has been used minimally. I don't enjoy spending valuable shop time "babysitting" an expensive machine that was designed poorly. My advice: stay away from this one if (1)your shop is cold (2)if you don't like wasting your time babysitting a vital shop machine constantly and (3) you don't enjoy getting ripped off constantly having to buy their overpriced, cheaply made knives. If you want to stay with Dewalt, get the 734 (assuming they have not cheapened it out since they made my unit well over 10 years ago.)

Great features!

|

This machine is incredible!!! Lots of great features, very easy to use, and very accurate, right out of the box. My regular steel blades leave an amazingly smooth finish. Sanding optional! Works great with my Dust Buster. Small chips with no blockage. Worth the difference. Get one!

Last year I got this machine as a birthday present. This is best machine in my wood workshop. My friends also saw this machine and several people bought it. I will recommend this machine to my friends. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

JUST DO IT.

|

Bought this planer after much research. Being budget, space, and experience limited this planer with the stand has been fantastic. It is not cheap but good tools aren’t cheap. This is one of those tool to get your foot in the door and once you see what’s inside that door you’re just going to want more. Just buy one and you’ll enjoy it.

Dewalt 735 Planet

|

I ran across the planer on sale which included an extra set of knives, in/out tables and the roll around table. I’ve only used the planer a few times on walnut but it performed flawlessly, providing a very smooth surface and no snipe. I would not hesitate recommending this product.
