Question about DW735 planer


Kupe

Recommended Posts

I've been comparing benchtop planers lately and read some things that suggest the DeWalt DW735 had some issues with sprockets that kept breaking.  Does anyone know if DeWalt fixed this issue with the 735?  ...or do you have any feedback on this and/or Model DW734 you can share?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

In my humble opinion, the DW735 is hand's down the best bench-top planer on the market. I have not heard any buzz out of the sprocket in a long time. Most likely a type 1 issue. It is however a wearable part, and less than $4 if my memory serves me correct. I would purchase the planer with no regrets.  

Depending on who you buy it from I believe this deal is still going on.

I have had the planer for years (since long before I worked for DeWALT), I have put countless board feet through it, and have not had a hiccup.  I say definately buy it, and you will not regret it!  It is without a doubt the best portable planer on the market.
