DEWALT DW735X Two-Speed Thickness Planer Package, 13-Inch
This wood planer falls under the kinds of planers that prioritize thickness. With three knife cutter heads that can make the knife can switch faster than normal, it’s no wonder this is the most popular item from DEWALT. It has a 15 AMP, 20,000 RPM motor which cuts big pieces very easily.
It has a 19-3/4” aluminum base and so is about twice more inflexible compared to a 10” tool. As it has a two-speed gearbox, the user can change the speed at 96-176 cuts per inch. Other than that, it includes infeed and outfeed tables and a chip ejection vacuum which is fan-assisted. The planar can be found only at a price under 1000 USD on Amazon.
