A guy has this for sale at 175 said it was used once. 3 plane. Is this is good deal or should I negotiate lower.

That’s a pretty good price. You can always offer a bit lower, but I wouldn’t feel bad about paying 175 for a 734 that’s been lightly used.

If he bought it new nab it.

& a belated welcome to LJs KarenMW.

I paid 200.00 for a used Dewalt 733 and it’s been great.

That is a good deal IF it works as advertised. Run a board through it and see that it does its job with no issues.

Apparently the individual had it on 25 different sale sites. It was already sold from last night. After looking at everything he has for sale, I believe he buys it somewhere, maybe auctions and sell them higher. Think I’ll look into a new one

I have the 733, which is the predecessor of the 734, essentially the same machine, just with 2 knives instead of 3. It’s been great for over 15 years and I’ve used it a lot. When I upgrade, it will be the 734.

I have the DeWalt DW735. I have had it for about 4 years and have ran probably 1,900 to 2,000 feet of lumber through it and it has never failed me. I have yet to replace the original blades as well but unlike most people I check the lumber for metal via a magnet and I make several passes to get to my desired thickness whereas most want to take to deep of cuts to get there faster. I’d look for a sale on those via the internet …
