The Steel Citys as good as the other two and will do the same as well with less final finishing in the long run as you will get a much smoother finish. Its as good as it gets and a newer planer than either of the other 2 models listed, while the 735 has great chip vacumn during the planing process due to it’s included fan you can get the same from others with a good DC unit. I’d go that route as its also less money in most case’s and Dewalt is phasing out both planers for newer models to come out soon from what I hear.Personally I have never heard a bad word said about the Steel City by anyone who knew how to setup a planer correctly in the 1st place , http://www.popularwoodworking.com/article/helical-cutterhead-in-a-suitcase-planer , http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/product/877
