I have a Dewalt DW735 planer with new blades, and extra set of new blades, input and output feed tables, and the chip attachment that connects the planer to a trash can. I listed it on CL for 450 so that if I had to drop a few $$ I could. No calls, am I that far off on price?

I wish you lived around me…that's exactly what I'm looking for and never find on CL around here. Usually beat up Deltas or Ryobis. If it is in good cosmetic condition with all that stuff I think it's a great deal. They can be had for $599 at Lowes. I hope to get HD to price match and take the 10% off.

If you'll bring it into the 300 range it'll get more attention. especially nowadays where lowes and HDs are having sales, and inventory clearance - those planers were going NEW for $375 at some stores (without the accessories… but people want cheap, not fully loaded in todays economy).

That's not a bad price. Drop it to $400 and see what happens. I bought my DW 735 a few months back for $412 at Home Depot on sale. It did not come with extra blades, outfeed tables or the chip ejector attachment. See what happens on here.

1. This time of the year is difficult to sell tools. Remmeber most people have their disposable income tied up in gifts for their children. If it would be bought as a gift, well how many people here have a spouse who isn't already fed up with tool purchases AND knows that this is a high quality portable

2. Like above, generally used power tools sell in the 50-60% range, less for lower brands, and much less for Planers/Jointers. There simply isn't enough demand from us weekend warriors and the D735 is more of a second portable planer commitment, as in you got so frustrated with snipe but haven't committed to a 15" yet.

3. If you want it gone list it for $300, this puts it in range of people who are looking at the $200 Ryobis, Ridgids and "Craftsman." If you want some bites, $350-$375.

I just bought my DW734 on Craigslist last year for $250. I think that is about average for what those go for used, so I would think $300 would be about right for a DW735. Craigslist "average" prices are different for different areas of course.

It's good planer, I have two at the moment, but the knives have a tendency to nick easily especially in hard maple or walnut from my experience, that is it's only downside. As noted you can buy new in the $400 range. The tables and knives are $55 each, with a Rockler 25% coupon $41 (that's when I buy them) so they add $82. So $450 is not that great of deal currently for a used machine even with the extra fixin's.

And as far as the chip collector attachment, don't know that it's really needed. The dust collection output is blower powered to start with so even if you don't connect it to a dust collector it does a fine job on it;s own. I have it connected and I don't get any wood chips blowing out from it.

I agree with PurpLev and MedicKen as far as price goes, it's always worth more to us than to most buyers.

One big problem with selling a complete setup like that is people only think about the planer itself. That planer is popular enough that you might not have all that much trouble selling the different pieces by themselves. List the planer for $375, extra knives for $30, infeed/outfeed tables for $30 and the dust collection shroud for $25. You already said that you could come down some so if someone asks about buying all the pieces you could bring your wiggle room into play.

I monitored CL here in New England looking for this planer for the past 4 months. Anything priced below $425 was gone quickly. I was resigned to paying up to $480 to get one until Lowes dropped the price to $599 and I decided to get one new. It's an extremely popular planer. A price of $400 should move it although it is a slow time of year.
