By

The DeWalt DW735 is a benchtop planer (also called lunchbox planer). It is the bigger brother of the DeWalt DW733 and DW734. It is bigger than the other DeWalt planers and has different design.

In contrast to the other DeWalt planers, the DW735 seems to be available mostly in North America, and is much harder to find elsewhere.

Lunchbox or stationary planer?

Although its size makes it fit in the lunchbox or benchtop planer category, its design is actually more similar to that of stationary planers. This can be seen from the four threaded ‘pillars’ over which the head of the machine moves. This design is also used on bigger, stationary planers.

Dust collection

One of the biggest issues with the DW733 and DW734 was that the dust collection hood got clogged quite easily. On the DW735 however, DeWalt has added a special blower motor that forces all wood chips out with air.

This also means you can use it without dust extraction, but it will result in a bit of a mess in your shop, as can be seen in this video.

Workhorse

The main difference between the DW735 and smaller planers is not the power or quality of finish. It is that the DW735 is a real workhorse, to be used for longer periods at a time. Because it is heavier and its design is more sturdy, it will be much more durable and you don’t have to worry about it clogging up or overheating.

Note on the DW735X: The DeWalt DW735X is actually 100% the same machine, except it has extra outfeed and infeed tables, plus an extra set of replacement blades included. These can also be purchased separately for the normal DW735.

Machine Atlas Verdict
