There’s a Northfield in Ohio for $800.

The thing is, these planers tend to weigh a ton or more,
sometimes a lot more. When machines start to get that
heavy the people willing to mess around with moving
them start to get scarce.

Check out http://owwm.org for some crazy deals on
heavy things.

Weight is a huge obstacle specially for a hobby woodworker ,I just bought a DW 735 planer because it is portable(sort of),although I had enough money to buy a good used 15” or even bigger planer but the main reason I didn’t was,as you said, weight ,how was I going to transport it without a truck/a lift,how would I move it around the shop,etc,etc.
It is a dream of mine to own a vintage 20” bandsaw,16” jointer,20” planer,a Unisaw,16” RAS,industrial sander, all in a much bigger shop,maybe someday ,but for now all I can do is to watch these beautiful woodworking machines go for sale at the fraction of what they are worth new,,and drool.

Not to far from me. I have it’s cousin, Crescent mortiser, weighing in at 950. It was an adventure to move but well worth it.
