There might be cheaper/better options, but this is the lowest price I've seen for this saw.

A lot of misinformation in this thread. The 745 and 7480/7485 are essentially all the same saw with minor differences. The 7480 is the outgoing model replaced by the 7485. The 7480 and 745 are both 10" saws, but the 7480 has a rip capacity of 24" vs 20" on the 745.

The new 7485 retains the 24" rip capacity of the 7480 but has a 8.25" blade and an even smaller table and weighs about 47lb.. This was done to comply with UL regulations. Not the best for large sheet goods unless you have outfeed/support table. They all have the same fence and guard system, on tool storage etc. All will get the job done and all will do anything you ask of them.

For those concerned about the 8.25" blade, don't be. There is no practical effect. Sure, you get slightly less cutting depth but you can still cut 2x material in one pass. For 4x material, you need two pass just like a 10" blade, so what are you cutting in between those depths regularly? I prefer the smaller blade. Cheaper to get 60 tooth blades. I use 7.25" blades most of the time on mine anyhow. Love the fine clean cut they make.

Anyhow, the ACME deal with the stand is easily the best deal here. That should be front page.
I've had the previous version of this for several years now. Really well designed, performs like a champ and isn't super heavy. I'm a tinkerer and definitely not an artisan! I got a cheap foot pedal switch from Harbor Freight to go with it. It allows starting and stopping it from different positions.

I keep thinking I want one but I'm too cheap to get one yet. Figure I could buy 3S hardwood and not bother. Thoughts?

My real want is a jointer. I can edge joint on a table saw but I can't do anything with the faces....

If you aren't planing all the time the DW735 is overkill in my opinion, I consider it the best benchtop planer and even have one (got it used on marketplace) but if you're a hobbyist who is planing 2-3 times a month it's really just a beast taking up space. I have a small shop and I'm tempted to sell it and get a smaller Ridgid or the DW734. It really shines when you have to plane a ton of wood but as a hobbyist I haven't used it in two months. I can't complain because I paid $300 for it but if I had paid anywhere close to the $450+ it goes for typically I'd be kicking myself. It's always recommended because you can't beat the features in one package but not everyone needs that.

How did you get a DW734 for $300? Great price. I have a small bench top jointer, works fine for under 3ft, maybe up to 4ft boards. I will upgrade when I have more time and space.

I want a DW734 or DW735 as you can get a planer and not really have to upgrade it. But the best I have seen on a DW734 is low $400s.

I second that, I would even take a DW734 under $350.

Picked up the $300 DW735 on OfferUp in great condition, I spent $60 for the fold down wings and chip blower adapter but I couldn't pass up the deal. I got lucky but I often see the DW734 for $350 or lower by checking facebook marketplace, craigslist, offerup, letgo, etc. Every six months or so the DW735X drops down to $450 or less new but the best bet is local marketplace.

Anyone have an really world experience between 745 and 748? Is the price for 748 worth it? I understand the differences between rip capacity and RPM but I don't want to be kicking myself in the butt for picking the wrong one. I know there is a way to extend the rip capacity of the 745 as well. What is everyone's experience and thoughts?

The 7485* (this model) uses a 8 1/4" blade vs the standard 10" size on the 745 which limits how high the blade can go. This table saw is tiny compared to even other jobsite saws but it does have the rack and pinion fence which I love but I'd never get this over a 10" blade saw.

I have the same question. Also, isn't $278 for the DW745 on Amazon a good deal as well?
