Ditto the DW735. Had mine for 4-5 years and smooth is the word. I just flipped my blades. The first side was still fine, I just got tired of waiting fot them to wear out.

In useing pallet or any found, indeed ANY wood at all, brush it clean with a stiff wire brush, and vacuum it thouroughly before planning. This will allow the planer to give a good finish longer. Taking light cuts is very important. Treat it as a valuable tool, and it will work and last well for you.
