A reader wrote in with a tip that Dewalt’s DW735X thickness planer kit is on sale. Thank you Tim!
I checked, and it is – the Dewalt DW735X woodworking planer kit, which comes with the planer, infeed and outfeed tables, and a replacement set of knives, is currently on sale at Amazon for $500 with free shipping.
The $499.88 price is a hair over Black Friday 2019 pricing of $499.00, which was the lowest price I have ever seen on this planer combo. A good price on this planer is usually $525 to $575, and that’s typically after a $25 off $100+ promo or similar. $500 is a great price, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen it priced lower than $499.00.
You can refer to our post history of DW735X deals, as a historical price record or for helpful reader commentary. Online price trackers show that the price of the combo kit dipped to $499 at Amazon during Black Friday weekend, and that its price before and since then has been ~$550.
Other retailers have this planer combo at $649 right now.
The planer features:
- 15A motor
- 20,000 RPM motor speed
- 10,000 RPM cutterhead speed
- 3-knife cutterhead
- 2-speed gearbox – 96 and 179 cuts per inch (CPI)
- 1/8″ Max depth of cut
- 13″ width capacity
- 6″ depth capacity
Frankly, I don’t think we can expect to see this planer bundle priced any lower than this, at least not anytime soon. This is the second time I have ever seen the price drop down below $500. Right now, the DW735 planer, which doesn’t come with the infeed and outfeed tables or spare blades, is priced at $549. As mentioned, other retailers have the DW735X bundle for $649 right now.
If you’ve been waiting for a good deal on this planer bundle, you might want to act quickly.
At this low price, and given the uncertainty of how long it’ll remain stable, it might be best to decide quickly whether to order one immediately, or wait for the next promo. The price might skyrocket if the planer sells out, or Amazon might honor the price on a certain number of backorders. Or it might remain at this price and in-stock inventory levels for a week or longer. My gut feeling says that the deal won’t last long, but that’s also not a high-confidence guess.
