Im about to sell my DW 735. It has new blades and the extra tables with it. How much do you think I should charge? I was thinking 375 – 350.

If it is in good shape, I think $375 is a very reasonable price … you shouldn’t have any trouble selling it at all.

I wouldn’t take any less than that.

Since the DW735 is functionally the same (except for DW is 2-speed) as the Ridgid4330 4-post design that sells for $399 when not on sale, IMHO I would say you are asking a bit much for your DW735.

FWIW, I bought my R4330 NEW for $369 online when it was on sale last summer. The Ridgid came with infeed and outfeed tables standard/stock, whereas the Dewalt does not (at least did not when I was looking to buy).

That is just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

darrenjttu,

Where are you located? I’m in the market for a used planer. I’m in Vermont.

I see what you’re saying Mike, and agree with you. But the thing is the DW sells for $649 (new). I know the two machines do the same thing, with one being much less expensive (new), but because they are used – why would that make the two worth the same?

Edit:
I guess I should have asked how much the Ridgid usually costs new. Was the price you paid when it was on sale? That would make sense.

@ HorizontalMike I think he DW735 is different than the Ridgid RD4330, maybe you are thinking of the DW734

@ darrenjttu I think your pricing is reasonable.

I don’t know if the sale is still on but I got mine from Toolking two weeks ago, factory reconditioned, with the full warranty for $399. That did not include the infeed.outfeed tables.

400 is fair the DW 735 has been the best bench top planer on the market for a few years. Reviews of many magazines and also from the post. ( Yes you still have your lemons) But if you see it for 200 dollars I’d say its pretty well used up and or just a steal cause they don’t know any better.

Jeff in Huntersville That is used

Notice the LOCKING BAR on the 734. IMO, that is a PITA to set every….single…time…you make a cut, unlock, crank, relock, cut, unlock,....

The Ridgid R4330 IS NOT like the 734 and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! I just crank the depth wheel and cut, crank and cut, etc… JUST LIKE the 735. The DW735 is over-priced from the get-go. I am NOT confused on this matter, though some may wish it so. While the DW735 is a good machine, it is NOT $250 better (if at all) than the R4330.

Just on another note, I worked with the Ridgid 4330. I was not all that impressed. Good machine but….. Still lacking. Snipe less even without in ad outfeed. Adjustment easier. stops better. Dust collection crazy, Maybe too much. Sturdier build. I can not say enough for a bench top planer.

Yes its worth the 150 more when bought on sale with the in and outfeed plus a extra set of knifes. Way superior.
