Adam wrote in with a heads-up that the Dewalt DW735X 2-speed planer package, which includes infeed and outfeed tables and a replacement set of blades, is on sale for $549.
I checked today, and not only is the planer package on sale for $549, it’s eligible for Amazon’s $25 off $100+ Dewalt promo, dropping the price to $524.
I have NEVER seen the Dewalt DW735X planer package priced this low.

Last holiday season, this planer package was $575 after $25 discount.
This Dewalt planer, DW735, is often considered to be the best benchtop planer you could buy. One of its great features is its fan-assisted chip ejection system, which helps to clear the cutter head without having to connect a dust collection system (but you could).
It features a 15A 20,000 RPM motor with 10,000 RPM cutterhead speed, and can handle workpieces up to 13″ wide. The 2-speed gearbox changes the feed speed from 96 CPI to 179 CPI for finish or dimensioning cuts.
In the past, I said this about the planer package, which when on sale was only $50 more than the planer by itself:
The Dewalt DW735 planer by itself is $549 and is not eligible for the holiday discount. So for $26 more [after $25 off holiday discount], you get an extra set of planer blades, and both infeed and outfeed table extensions. The folding tables are typically priced at $45-$55, and a spare set of planer blades is $47, or $75 for 2 sets.
In other words, if you’re interested in either a spare set of blades, or extension tables, the DW735X planer package is a good way to go.
This year, the DW735 planer and DW735X planer package are both eligible for the $25 off $100 Dewalt promo. But it’s a moot point, because they’re both priced at $549! So it’s no question – if you were even thinking about the DW735 planer, buy the DW735X planer package for the same money!
Acme has matched Amazon’s offer of $549 – $25 = $524.
Price: $524 (at checkout)
The stand is $145, or $120 after holiday $25 off discount. In order to get the $25 discount, be sure to add it to your cart and checkout separately. If you buy the stand with the planer, you’ll just get $25 off both items, instead of $25 off each.
If you want something smaller and a little expensive, the Dewalt DW734 is also widely well regarded. It’s $399, and $374 after $25 holiday discount.
