Not necessarily. The DeWalts are popular in all honesty because they are an excellent machine. They are also hideously expensive, and incomplete (you have to pay extra for the infeed / outfeed tables).

The lowest current price for a DW735 is $551.00 for a new one (Amazon) or $499.99 for a refurb (ToolKing). Add to that the additional expense of the “folding table set” (infeed / outfeed tables) at $189.99 and you can see this is NOT for the low budget shop.

If you’ve got the bucks, and don’t mind spending the money to pick one up, grab it! They are popular for a reason, but if you are wanting to put money elsewhere, like more tools, vacations, whatever… Look at a different machine…
