I have the DW734. I’ve been using it to process all the maple and walnut (and some poplar) for my kitchen cabinets, walnut island top, etc and it has not disappointed me. The maple is hard and the walnut was old stuff that’s been air drying in a barn loft for 20 years. I’m still on the blades it came with and they show no signs of being in trouble. And you’re right. Getting new blades is not a big deal.

A lot of this depends on what you intend to use the stuff for. If you’re going to start a business you need more budget. If you’re going to build pieces that need these machines a couple times a week, then I think you’ll be fine.
