Excellent value for the hobbyist woodworker.`
I did a lot of research for a new benchtop thickness planer. I knew that the DW735 was very popular, but it was a little expensive, and the size of its footprint didn't work well for me. I have a small garage workshop, and I wanted to mount the planer on a swivel top stand along with a Ridgid oscillating/belt sander. I thought about the Ridgid R4331, but read too many negative reviews. Then I found the DW734, which while it doesn't have as many features as the DW735, it had what I wanted: Three knives, a material removal indicator, a locking carriage to reduce snipe, and large infeed and outfeed tables. CPO shipping was extremely fast, and I saved more than $75 compared to buying it at my local big box store when you add in sales tax. I have only used it briefly (to help me build the swivel top stand), but the cut quality is amazing. VERY SMOOTH, and very little snipe on either end. So far, I am very happy.

Best tool I have purchased yet
Looking back at every project I have ever done, everyone of them would have turned out better with this planer. This planer is an absolute work horse. Right out of the box it planed 200ft of typical Home Depot lumber to protection.

Easy to use. Highly recommend a vacuum system. If you don't have one just be sure to place it somewhere where you can easily clean around it.

Love this planer. Easy to chance thickness with the top mount handle. Wish the run off table was just slightly longer.

I’ve had this a for a few months now and it’s a beast. I use it almost everyday and run some pretty narley boards through it with no issues. Switching out the blades is easy as well.

You pay for what you get, but this is very capable. Keep the blades shape and you’ll have no issues.

Why I like my planer
My new thickness planer does a perfect job. has enough power to plane hardwoods without any trouble and does everything I need it to
March 3, 2018
Very nice planer
I bought this planer without really checking it out beforehand as I needed one immediately after my old planer died unexpectedly. I'm now actually glad my old planer died; this replacement planer has far exceeded my expectations. The fold-down lead in/out tables were level straight out of the box. The three blade system delivers a smooth cut with little to no pullout. A very nice machine!

Sturdy, Heavy, Reliable - YET very Portable!
I am a professional handyman and therefore often do custom window and door trim and installation along with small shelving and cabinetry projects. With the planer, I have done an incredible amount of work with poplar and the other, softer, hardwoods. It has given me perfect results with zero hassle - greatly recommended!

Hello,
Are the blades reversible and which is better a 2 or 3 blade?
Thanks
Brent on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes blades are reversible. I would prefer the 3 blade for a better finish on the wood. Also when planing take your time and make sure your lumber is flat on feed table and clear of all nails if using recycled material.
How much Horsepower.
Sir Duke of Awesomeness on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No horse power rating on the motor however this planer is plenty powerful as long as you dont try to take down too much in one pass. Works great. Highly recommend.

Are the blades carbide? Listing doesn't say.
Philo on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure, I've had to replace one set, they last for about 1k-2k board feet and then I put the new set in. Depends what material you're using though, I've been using all hard wood and some really dense stuff.
