I have both a drum sander and the Dewalt 735 and the Dewalt 735 is my goto tool for getting the edge grain cutting boards nice and flat. I don’t even try and get the boards all perfect on glue up and rely on the planer to flatten them out. Then I only run them through the drum sander a couple of passes. If I didn’t have the drum sander I don’t think that would even slow me down much because I could do all the sanding with the orbital sander. But if you’re taking end grain boards that’s different, but that doesn’t sound like what you’re talking about.
