I have been informed that HD is closing out the Dewalt 735’s for $274. I recently bought a Ridgid TP1300LS there for $229 on closeout or I would be all over this. I should mention that the two people I heard about this from are in Conn. If anyone out there is looking for a planer, now would seem to be a good time.

Hey I just picked one up here in California! Talk about a sweet deal! I had no idea it was nationwide though. I just recently stopped by Lowe’s, where they retail the DeWalt 735 for $600! Deals like this only come once in a blue moon.

Way to look out for your lumberjock buddies.
I just called the HD in my area & there is no word of reduction here. :(
I am leaving for a weeks vacation tomorrow morning. I’ll really be bummed out if they hit that sale price while I am out of town. HD retails them for $649. here.

Choppertoo, you might want to ask Teem if he can scan his receipt and send it to you. Your local HD might be willing to use that for a price match. If not, I believe that Lowes will price match. I recently sent a scanned receipt to a guy on another forum and he got his local store to match the price on a DC. I’m seriously considering grabbing one here and either returning the Ridgid 1300LS I bought or selling it. I think I could probably get my purchase price for it since it is still in the box.

That is an increadable deal. Reconditioned DW 735 list for $499.

I’ve had one for four years and it is excellent. Noisy and produces a ton of chips but a great machine.

Heck, for that price, why get new knives? Just get another machine!

I was able to pick up a DW735 at the Upper Darby (a suburb of Philly) Home Depot for $274, about a week ago.
Also HSS replacement blades for this planer can gotten from
I believe they also have carbide replacement blades.

rsdowdy, always happy to help out a fellow lumberjock (and wooter). Now, if only the HD stores in my area would honor the price…
