Dewalt DW735X Planer w/ Mobile Stand Bundle
The Dewalt planer and mobile stand bundle returned this year.
This comes with the DW735X planer package and mobile stand.
The DW735X bundle kit comes with the planer, plus infeed and outfeed tables and a set of replacement blades.
For fellow mid-westerners, $579 at Farm & Fleet, has been since 11Nov. This Sunday, 21Nov, they have their 10% off member sale after hours (in store only). Will bring it down to $521.10.
Last year around this time that sale price was $499, I don’t know if it will go that low this year.
That’s with the assumption that the current discount will hold. It’s currently under MAP pricing, hence the “add to cart to see the price.” A lot of retailers bump pricing up to MAP for coupon promos or exclude promo-priced items. I haven’t shopped at Blain’s F&F enough to know what they’ll do here.
They do not. Their 10% member sale is good on everything, regular price, clearance price, sale price, et al.. They run it a few times a year and I always get some pretty hot deals by stacking it with current sales. Last couple years they had some of the lowest prices on the DCB609 2pks ($199 in 2019 and $209 in 2020), stocked up real good during the 10% sale. Fyi they’re $259(!) this year.
There are a few exclusions: “Not valid on special order merchandise, hunting/fishing licenses, trailer tax/registration, gift cards or on prior purchases. Brand exclusions may apply and are subject to change. Excludes merchandise from the following brands: Carhartt, Columbia, Festool, Levi’s, New Balance, Stihl, Under Armour and Weber.”
Wow. I am right next to a F&F and it’s not common for them to be the lowest price on the large power tool brands. Thanks for the heads up.
thanks for the update. I have to say the planer seems to get such hit or miss reviews. Kept me away from one for quite a while.
Leaning towards the alternative products. like the Ridgid/Delta etc.
I’ve had this planer for four years and have not been disappointed. The only “misses” would be. Paid $550 early 2017.
#1. Minimum 13″ material length, you can push 12″ but it’s got to be perfectly fed.
#2. The infeed/outfeed tables from the factory didn’t provide enough lift to avoid snipe on longer(6′) boards, shimmed it with ~1/16″ of sheet metal where the table hits the planer to lift the front/rear up and it’s good.
The big hit
#1. chipper/blower, if you are dumping into a passive dustbin (aka trashcan with fine mesh screen when working outside) it’s great. I dump into a shop vac with air filters when I can’t wheel the setup outside.
A friend has the Ridgid R4331 and his “misses” are.
#1 Dust collection is poor, you must have a big collector/vacuum on it.
#2 The feed wheels being close to center allows for shorter pieces but also means that a dip in the wood can cause the unit to pull the wood when the dip is long enough to bridge the cutter and a feed roller.
Both planers have the feed wheels get hard when it gets cold. So if I need to plane in the garage(space) in winter I need to start the space heater early.
I too have this planer and agree with Anson. I’ve had it 3 years now and It’s been a great machine. I run through boards on a sled I made for it and snipe isn’t too bad and the finishing speed leaves a decent surface. Overall I’ve been pretty happy with it. Paid just under $600 in summer 2018. I should’ve invested in the stand for it, it’s quite heavy to keep on a shelf.
“The infeed/outfeed tables from the factory didn’t provide enough lift to avoid snipe on longer(6′) boards, shimmed it with ~1/16″ of sheet metal where the table hits the planer to lift the front/rear up and it’s good.”
Can you explain how this helped when adjusting the angle of the tables does not? TIA
Soo, didn’t really notice that the screws on the sides of the table could be used to adjust for height as well. I’ll play with those later.
What I do is cut sheet metal about 1/4″ wide and wrap it onto the table where the cap screw hits the table it and tape it in place(on the table side). The alternative idea was to glue another piece of sheet metal on top of the table. The “shim” was able to get me enough clearance to have it work out. The end of the table is ~1/4″ higher than the hinge side and provides enough leverage that the longer boards aren’t getting levered back into the cutter. I’m using softwoods (framing lumber etc) for what that’s worth (dunno if that’s better than hardwoods or not for flex vs weight).
The infeed snipe on this unit was better than the outfeed snipe.
A typical feed process for me to line up 4-5 2x4s, start feeding one at a time and then rush to the back of the unit and catch the outfeed. So I’m likely supporting the material more as it goes into the machine. My planar typically is about knee to waist high sitting on some benches.
Thanks for the reply. I think adjusting the feed table/ramp is a way to get to the same mechanical leverage. Unfortunately for me, no adjustment seems to resolve the issue. This model planer has been around for many years, essentially unchanged, and some people have a problem with snipe, and some say no. I don’t know if there is a manufacturing quirk that exaggerates this problem (roller diameter differences?) or not. Oh well, when possible I just add some sacrificial length to the board and cut it off.
I’ve had this one and the stand for a few years and uts been solid. Some snipe but it’s not bad and can be mitigated. I did have one of the plastic pins on the dust shoot break from the weight of the hose and the rockler dust attachment but “fixed” that with a bungee cord. No regrets buying it.
I’ve had this unit for several years and the only issue — as frequently cited — is snipe. I’ve tried adjusting the in/outfeed ramps but the snipe occurs as the board travels between the first and second feed rollers. I now try to allow an extra 5 – 6″ of material so I can cut off the 2-3″ of snipe to reach the desired length. The blades also develop chips, but that’s not unique to this planer, and they are two-sided.
Good luck whichever you choose.
I like the planer overall but frequently have problems with feeding and have to push/pull the wood through by hand. I wish there was an option for a serrated metal infeed roller.
Home Depot now has the planer/stand combo kit in stock with 330 units ready to ship, and it has the label of “Black Friday Savings” attached to it. It had been out of stock up until last week. That gives me hope that it will be on sale on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
(HD Link for the combo)
Right now they show a price of $848. Last year the bundle price was $599. There’s a gamble here too and choices to make. If you want the stand, wait. If you don’t want it, the current deal saves you a little more money. Right now, Rockler has the combo for $679 + freight (I mentioned this in the post). It’s uncertain what the promo price will be. We’ve seen higher prices on miter saws and other equipment. There’s a chance that the combo price will be between $599 and $679. Even at $679, that’s a “buy the planer kit at full price and get a free mobile stand” price point.
Stabila levels are now at new higher prices. Festool prices are increasing January 1st.
$569 for the planer is higher than past Black Friday deals and it might the lowest price going forward.
Anyone’s guess how long inflation will be with us. We haven’t had increasing prices for years but better to think differently about purchasing until inflation cools.

This is ridiculous and not true. It was down to $500 this time every year for the last three years. Same model, same sellers.
I wrote in the post that it was $499 for the past 3 Black Fridays in a row, and that this is the lowest pricing I’ve seen so far this year.
We have already seen that historic pricing hasn’t held up for a lot of tools and equipment right now. A lot of products are more expensive this season.
Respectfully, it seems like you didn’t read the post or even the title. If you did, what exact part do you believe to be untrue?
Jonathan Glenn Travelstead
My apologies. You did.
Fortunately in June this site had to point out that it was like $475 during prime day so my wallet took the hit back then…
I forgot about that! That was indeed great pricing. I don’t think it’s supposed to ever be $499 and eligible for $25 off savings, but Amazon never seems to notice (or care).
I purchased Homie Depot last November 7th, 2020. $599.99 with table.
Don’t mean to change subject. Kinda am. Opinions on the helix/shelix blade change for said Dewalt planer. My planer still in the box. Hoping to get it out soon.
My opinion is that it’s nice if you plan to use your planer ***A LOT***.
Like, a lot, a lot.
Otherwise it’s likely just something you’ll brag about buying/owning.
549$ with extra knives, tables and stand at Hartville Hardware tool sale this week!
Thats best deal I have ever seen. Totally forgot that , the table kit came with extra set of blades.
All I see is $679 so far.
I really hope it’ll be $549, but I have not seen that anywhere else yet.
Acme Tool has the dw735x and stand bundle for $599 in their black Friday/Cyber Monday flyer. The price god from is from 11/25 – 11/29
Where did you see this?? The BF ad for this year isn’t out for Acme tools
It’s not in their BF ad – maybe it’s an in-store promo.
(I’m working on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday ad right now, it should be up shortly at https://toolguyd.com/acme-tools-black-friday-2021-sale/ .
It came in the snail mail yesterday.
It’s a printed ad? Is it for online as well for $599 with the stand?
it is in the printed Holiday Gift Guide. The planer is in a separate section of the flyer that is only for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It doesn’t say it is in store only.
That might be a store or local promo.
I have digital copies of the BM/CM and Holiday Gift flyers, and there’s no planer there. I’ll keep an eye open nonetheless – thank you!
Is there anyway to post of pic of this ad or provide a pic to the Toolguyd site owner?
I’d be happy to scan it and send a copy. Just need an email address.
If you host it somewhere (e.g. Google Drive, you can always include a link in the contact form – https://toolguyd.com/contact-us/ .
The contact form used to allow for attachments, but we lost that feature when switching services about a year ago.
My Instagram page has my quick email address.
I don’t share my email address in comments or plain text here because it gets abused.
Somehow advertising agencies even started calling my private cell phone number.
Saw a combo deal on the Grizzly email this morning for the planer, stand, and a helical head for $1095.
Thanks! That’s an aftermarket helical head that you also need to install yourself.
If you’re spending a couple of hundred dollars extra, get a genuine Shelix head – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008CS2QAE/?tag=toolguyd-20 , although demand on the Shelix might mean waiting a bit.
The Acme Tool $599 with stand deal has started already. Just ordered one.
It looks like CPO and Acme are the only participating dealers right now, I’ll be on the lookout for more.
Acme and CPO outlet have it for $599 right now. Jump on it people!
This is with the mobile stand as well. Tyler Tools matched it as well.
Thanks! Yes – the bundle deal is back!
Rather than create a new post I reset this one.
If anyone just wanted the planer package, the previous deal saved money, but this is a better deal for anyone who also wants toe mobile stand.
Guys thanks so much for the CPO tip, I just snagged it from there. I’ve been following it on ACME and they’re saying out of stock (this is 12:40 est, and they still show in stock on the planer kit, just not the one with the stand). I was so bummed thinking I missed it. Happy Thanksgiving and thanks again; this site is fantastic.
JAN 2022 they’re all $850 .!. >.< .!.
