I havr been using the 735 for as long as it has been around and will keep using it. I got it for $500 at Lowes and have not looked back. I get beautiful finish-ready work out of it with no trouble yet. It does what I want which is to make big boards smaller and smoother. Snipe hasn’t been a problem nor has been blade wear.

I purchased it at Lowes for $500 on sale at the urging of my wife who turned out to be right on a lot of purchases. No problems with the 735, consistent results, and good blade wear. I just purchased 2 replacement sets for $55/2-pair with about $6 shipping. Higher now but worth it/ Under protest, I flipped my first set to the virgin side, ans can’t tell a lpt of differemce between. Don’t seem to have problems with DeWalt blades. SOrry. I have run mine over a thousand board feet at least and have just flipped the first set of blades. I get good service.

If interested in the 735, get it here on sale. Shipping is cheap, or free,default,pd.html?start=1&cgid=dewalt-planers Price is hard to beat and you get a new warranty.
