Dewalt is top of the line in portable planers, but even the best have limitations. I’ll assume the dewalt is used since it’s 4 hours away. I would call it close if the dewalt were brand new but still opt for the 15” NT, used it’s an easy decision. I have the dewalt DW734 and it’s great for what it is but working it hard just feels like it’s going to break. For that reason I just picked up a 24” Rockwell that needs to be wired up and put to work. The additional width and induction motor of the NT are worth a lot in the long run.
