Portable Planer - 13" - 15 A

The powerful 15-amp motor of this planer handles larger cuts in wider materials with ease. The three-knife cutter-head delivers 30% longer knife life and makes knife change faster and easier. The two-speed gear box allows you to change feed speed to optimize cuts. Fan-assisted chip ejection vacuums chips off of the cutter-head and exhausts them out of the machine. Cast aluminium base is 2 times more rigid than a standard 10" base and folding tables. Automatic carriage lock reduces the movement that causes snipe without the need for manual engagement by the user. Material removal gauge and extra-large thickness scale deliver accurate cuts with every pass. Extra-large turret depth stop allows users to return to most frequently used thicknesses with ease.

Portable Planer - 13" - 15 A is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite tool. Debated spending the money for a few months and now I can't believe that I could have been planing with this thing all that time. It is a dream machine. I see zero snipe. How smooth it made some really old barn board? Incredible. It cuts through the wood like butter. Quality product that I would recommend to anyone and everyone. Stay clear of the wood chip exhaust; it really spits those things out with some force!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lack of thought I have a 735 , and it has some problems. After about 25 hrs. of use I noticed my oak strips were veering to the right- from the left side. Come to find out, the feed table plate was peeling up in the corner. I tried everything to fix the problem, eventually I peeled it off and replaced it with a laminate- problem solved and no more scratches. Inside where the cogs and chain are, debris builds up and prevents you from raising and lowering height,( I have a dust collecter), so you have to remove the cover and vacuum it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent machine, throw away the original knives I would give this a solid 5 stars but the original knives that ship with this machine are poor at best. I am working on a rustic hickory project, very hard wood with lot’s of knots. The original knives lasted only about 12 board feet cutting ~ 1/32 in each pass to remove 3/16 from the rough sawn lumber before having to turn the knives to the other side. I replaced the original knives with some carbide tipped blades (about 150.00) and have plained over 150 board feet with no noticeable dulling (yet). After a few boards I still have to wipe off the in feed rollers of the dust to keep the boards feeding correctly. For the price and performance (after the blade replacement) you just can’t get much better. DeWalt should consider making the carbide tipped blades standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Value I have been using this planer for the past 9 months. We have planed countless board feet of rough sawed oak that was not oven dried. Most boards were 11" wide and 6+ feet long. The blades cut cleanly, evenly across the width and have not dulled a significant amount or needed to be changed. The finished cuts are clean, smooth and beautiful. It handled oak just as well as poplar which is amazing. As long as the in-feed and out-feed tables are properly adjusted there was not a snipe problem. Adjustment is quick and easy. A great value for an economy planer and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Changine Blades Strips Screws every time This is a great overall planer in terms of quality and ease of use. However changing the blades is a huge headache because the screws that hold the blades on are torqued in so incredibly tight, trying to loosen these screws by hand will 100% for sure strip the heads on some/many of the screws. Then to get the stripped screws out it is incredibly tight quarters to use tools/specified items to remove and replace these screws. This is a common problem I found out for this item after doing a little research.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow this planer is great. very very very accurate. ive had absolutely no problems from this machine. the blades are not worth buying from dewalt if your planning hard woods. i get around three boards to each side of blades planing OAK from 1 inch down to 3/4. carbides are the way to go. there are lots of cool features with the planer. excellent easy blade changing from the top.ive had no problems with the star head screws stripping out. and every screw on the machine is the same size star heads so you can use the tool for everything(couple phillips head screws also). this machine makes it easy to plan long boards by yourself with ease. great product but should have came with plate rollers at least. but still worth the money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product - With a Quirk Bought this 4 months ago and wish I had bought it sooner. Great surface finish achieved in soft wood and hard woods. Easy to use, reliable and the surface finish you can achieve is amazing. I re-saw hard woods and this planer helps me to achieve a common final thickness for the re-sawn wood. My only issue the rollers reaction to the cold. is Dewalt needs to add a note to the instruction manual which explains when the feed rollers get cold, they will no longer grab the boards. I recently spend hours trying to determine what was wrong - finally did a web search and found the information on cold rollers. A small hear on them for a few minutes resolved the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FYI On the box the planer comes in is a bar code, directly underneath that bar code is a date code, the date will look something like 200929 for example. The first 4 numbers represent the year it was manufactured and the next 2 numbers represent the week it was manufactured. Any date that starts out as 2008 will have the screw and blade problems. However it can be taken to any Dewalt factory service center right out of the box for FREE replacement of the defective parts. Any date code starting with 200929 or later has had the parts replaced by Dewalt before shipping to stores and will be on a white sticker. If the date code starts out with 2010 and is on a clear sticker (better yet), then the issue had already been taken care of during manufacturing. Also, check on line retailers for pricing from Dewalt's web site. Lowes will match the price and take off an additional 10 %. I saved an extra $20.00. Also, check out the accessories from Dewalt.
