The DeWalt 735 regularly gets positive reviews… This is sort of an addendum. I have championed this tool often, and Those who have kept up know I have a bias towards it. x y I run three of them now, and years of experience with the ins and outs of this loud but compact beast. The one knock this tool gets is the many complaints about the bolts stripping. While I have never done this, I will admit to feeling many times that it was _about to happen. And size of the factory key didn’t inspire any extra confidence.
This is really a review of the new wrench.
Well low and behold…. this new one I purchased came with all Torx style connectors, and a beefy wrench to boot. They maintained all the other great features, rare earth magnets in the handle, great pocket to hold it, and best off all, they changed all the bolts, not just the one’s holding the blades. I loved how you can tear this machine down to it’s bones with just that factory wrench, and that could have easily been overlooked at this upgrade. I went to the blades first thing. A lot of complaints point out that these seem to be quite tight coming out of the factory…and they were. However, I didn’t feel at all like i needed to hold my breath, as I twisted them suckers right out.
Many people have already made this change themselves…it was nice to see that someone, somewhere, at one of the big boys, finally did something with all that feedback….and to one of there better tools.
