The performance results with the wood really boil down to set up and blade condition. The DW is a great portable planer, but as far as power, torque, capacity, reliability, longevity, volume abilities, noise levels, etc., the Grizzly and nearly any decent cast iron stationary planer with a belt drive induction motor is in a different league.

Thanks for the reply

I recently used a 20” cast iron stationary planner. I can’t remember brand name, but i know it was a top of the line brand. Its used dialy , who knows when the last time blades where sharpened. Comparing that to the Dw735 I bought brand new. The dewalts results where night and day compared to my old ridgid or even that 20” I was talking about above.

I understand you can’t compare results from a brand new machine/ brand new sharp blades compared to top brand 20” with heavily used blades (but still good results)

I paid $600 + tax for the dw735 @ big box store. Since then I’ve seen it all the way down to $400. I was thinking Instead of returning to save $200. To upgrade to the grizzly (which I always wanted a 15”)

I was just so impressed with the results from the dw735. Could I expect to get the same from the grizzly new with new blades?

If that makes since.
