In this video, I show how I changed the belt (the easy way) and replaced the knives on my Dewalt 735 wood planer.

I once replaced my knifes with carbide inserts and I have only had to rotate 2 since plus the planner got quieter and made smaller chips I have yet to need to replace the belt

I really thought hard about getting the carbide cutter head but couldn’t pull the trigger. I hear they are nice. Might be worth it just for the noise reduction. These things are loud. Maybe someday. This is the first time i have had to change the belt in 7 years.

I would not do the upgrade if you have access to 220 power if you have that watching for a use big boy planer and putting a spiral cutter-head in that which will last much longer

In my case I do not have 220 power unless I steal it from the dryer to weld so for woodworking I am stuck at 110 so in that case I think the 735 is the best planer in that case. I upgrade to the carbide head because I put one in my joiner and the finish was so good and I wanted the finish out of the planer to match the joiner
