After last night’s exciting but short lived Packout deal over at Blain’s Farm & Fleet, I decided to give their flyer a once-over. Lo-and-behold I found another pretty good deal: the Dewalt 735X thickness planer for $499 with free shipping. The deal includes the planer, infeed and outfeed tables, and an extra set of knives.
Update: There’s also another deal going on right now, for a planer and mobile stand package deal, details are below.
Update 11/26/2020: The same $499 sale pricing can also now be found at Amazon and Acme Tools!

This is by no means a unique deal, we’ve seen it over and over through the years. For instance, the last time we saw the DW735X sell for this low was an Amazon deal way back in February 2020. It’s also not the lowest price – that was $475 back in 2016, but $500 is still a really good deal for this Dewalt planer package.
Given how fast the Milwaukee Packout deal sold out last night, I wouldn’t hesitate if you are planning to buy. If you miss it, be patient, because odds are we’ll see this deal someplace else this season.
To get the deal go to the link below and add the planer to your cart. If the planer runs out online, remember it is also running in the Blain’s Farm & Fleet physical stores in Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, and Illinois. If you live in one of those areas, you still may be able to pick up the planer for the same price locally.

Note: When we saw this planer package sell for $475 a few years back, it was with $499 seasonal sale pricing and a $25 off $100+ coupon. Coupon promos often exclude this package deal, and so it’s are to see the Dewalt DW735X sell for less than $499.
Alternate Deal: Dewalt Planer and Mobile Base Package
Over at Acme Tools, they have a slightly different deal going on right now. The planer package isn’t discounted from $599, but they’re throwing in the mobile stand, which is available separately for $144 to $170.
If you were planning to buy both the Dewalt DW735X planer kit and the DW7350 stand to go along with it, this might be the better deal.

Update: Home Depot has it too. Thank you Mike!
Home Depot has the exact same planer/stand offer:
Thank you – added a link to the post.
Anyone believe the stand is worth the 100$. Looking to get this planer anyways. Wanted to wait for the 499 drop possibly. Vs me making one with casters. Thanks
You know how to weld and have steel scrap at your disposal?
Not steel. Wood. Why make it difficult lol. Iam not a metal worker. So I don’t have those types of tools.
I have a review sample of the stand, and it’s pretty solid.
Store-bought or DIY, this planer definitely needs a stand or mobile base of some kind, it’s not heavy (in my opinion) to be a “pick up and move around” kind of tool.
Ok that’s what I was wondering since depot rarely has crazy discounts on items. I just figured if I could make a small wood stand for it with casters. It would be cost of a prebuilt unit vs my time. So if the dewalt stand wasn’t worth it then I would just wait for maybe a discount on the 735x w /o stand. Thanks for the input. Better to if it won’t tip easily vs making a wider one also.
Not heavy, or too heavy? I have this planer and I love it but I dread moving this thing. Something like 90lbs and bulky though the handles make it a bit more manageable. I couldn’t find one with the stand when I bought mine and I have limited space for a stationary tool of this size so I picked up the folding dewalt work table at the orange store. Works well enough for my needs and I can fold table out of the way when planer is on the shelf.
I have the stand and I’d say it’s worth it unless you have something similar already. Building something as good as it would cost almost as much in time and materials.
Anyone have any comparisons to the Rikon 25-130H. I know it says helical cutterhead. Figure I might want to compare shop a tad. Even though the dewalt has super high praises without me looking hard for reviews
Don’t plan on getting one from Bains if you live in Cali. No delivery available for the state.
Home Depot worked.
The acme deal gets even better with an extra $20 off with promo code FALLSALE.
Just picked up the planer and stand for $579 with free shipping. Thanks for the initial tip!
I forgot about that – thank you!
Oh, the irony, given my post from earlier this week:
Don’t Forget About This DEWALT $20 off $150+ Promo!
Out of stock at Acme currently. Kicking myself for not ordering earlier with the $20 off coupon!
It’s down to $479 right now if you are a Blains Reward Member.
The $499 deal is now available at more retailers.
$549 with stand at Home Depot
Showing out of stock online and for in store pickup for me. Great price if you were able to grab one.
I have the other, slightly less expensive and usually slightly lower rated, Dewalt planer and really love the wood that comes out of it.
Question for you all: does anyone use one of these regularly indoors? The two issues I’ve got that lead to me using it outdoors are difficulties with placement – planing an 8′ board needs ~20 feet, realistically, and I don’t have that kind of shop space to give a planer, or even any easy way to put enough on wheels so I could rearrange things.
The other issue is that the amount of wood waste that these things can produce is simply prodigious. As a question that looks like a statement, I can’t imagine any homeowner/hobbyist dust control that could really deal with that blizzard of dust and chips – am I wrong? 🙂
The 735 at least has a fan assist for ejecting chips. You don’t need a dust collector, you just need a hose to route the chips somewhere. I’ve seen people just put a hose into a trash can, but you probably want to use some sort of flow through collection bag to cut down on dust.
Well (big smile), the back patio does great for me! I have it on a Bosch gravity-rise stand, which works great. I just get my leaf blower and disperse the mess when I’m done.
This is part of the reason I bought the ✈️ that Stuart posted about – but yeah – it launches really hard and I don’t see why just directing the output into a trash can wouldn’t work.
The stand is almost mandatory for this IMO – as I need to be able to roll it out of the garage or at least to the door to load and unload boards.
There are some Jet jointer/planer combo machines that are similar in price – but I don’t see any excitement over them – wonder why.
https://www.rockler.com/jet-10-jointer-planer-combo-w-open-stand Is an example. Maybe a jointer isn’t useful at 10 in?
You’re correct about the blizzard of chips coming out of it. My solution is a 55 gal Rubbermaid Brute trash bin with a Toro leaf collector bag I had laying around. Too that I attached a 4-foot section of 4″ hose and also have the dollie on the base of the container to move it around. The only waste is a little that comes out under the cutter knives.
