I tested the theory about the blower producing all the noise (when I had a DW735) by disconnecting it. Made no difference. Later, I had a Rockwell/Invicta 13X6 planer (great planer, by the way) with an induction motor. And it was almost as loud as the Dewalt. It’s the blades. Probably worse on the DW because you have 3 blades in a tight radius turning at enormous rpms. Now I have a Jet JJP12-HH with the helical head/carbide cutters, and it’s so quiet that I’m sometimes not sure whether it’s on (with the DC going, of course).

Byrd does make a spiral head for the DW735. I’ve heard it is noticeably quieter (pun accidental).
