It’s your lucky night.

Mine is 19 11/16th’s from the start of the infeed to the end of the outfeed
27 1/4” wide from the motor housing to the end of the handle. (Approximate)
14” from the base to the top of the posts and then full raised add about 6” (if you want to be able to flip your stand after planing 6 inch thick beams)

I wouldn’t recommend a flip stand for that planer. It weighs 92 lbs.
Plus alignment is more difficult with a flip stand. The infeed / outfeed tables need to be just right to get top performance from your planer.

You will love the tool.

I agree that a flip stand would not be too good of an idea. The 735 is HEAVY and unless you are extremely careful, could be a problem both with the strength of the flip mechanism and the potential of being unbalanced.

If you do build one, I would build it very heavy duty and with a heavy counter weight. Most of the ones that I have seen posted would be marginal for this use.

Congratulations on picking a good planer…..

I disagree about a flip top stand for the 735. Many have done it. There’s a really nice one by Lance on youtube.

I would be reluctant to make a flip stand for my DeWalt planer and would not put it on wheels for sure. I would not like to have my planer start rolling away as I was running a long board though it. In my view, this planer is way to heavy to flip and the in-feed and out-feed tables are not shown in this video and are needed to eliminate snipe.

I agree with Jim Finn as far as it being too heavy for a flip stand .

Also most likely people would buy the infeed-outfeed tables with it which means everytime you want to flip the planer ,you must first raise it up high so the tables can be folded,then they must be secured with a bungee cord or something so the don’t unfold during flipping motion.not a practical stand in my opinion.
