I have the Dewalt 735x. I Bought it around this time a couple of years ago and it included the free stand. I’ve run over 200’ of 8/4 hard maple through it to be used for my workbench. The Dewalt had no problem with cutting quality or ability. My only criticism of the product is the foot activated tilt lever for the wheel that allows you to move the planer base around. There must be a better design such as legs that would support swivel casters. The machine itself has worked great without any issues. I’ve feed plenty of other wood through it for various projects and it’s performed great.

As a side note; I connected a dust collection flexible hose with a plumbing clamp to the exit port on the machine. The other end of the hose I connected into a lawn leaf collection bag that belongs to my Toro blower. When the bag fills up I empty it and continue. Very little mess and very effective.

Good luck. I didn’t hesitate and bought the 735 and have been happy with it.
