Very tempting but I think I'm going to stick with waiting for its big brother, the DW735x, at <$550, preferably <$500.

I actually was able to order this and received 2 months ago. It's out of stock first and then I received home depot notification and order it right away. With coupon $100 off $25 it's $374 for me. The tool box looks great and solid.

It's 13 inches, which isn't a whole lot more, but it also has two speeds for rapid removal vs. finish planing, and a blower for dust control, meaning you don't really need a dust collector (but it certainly helps). Both can be upgraded to carbide insert cutteheads, though.

It is in stock, or back in stock.... you may have to change your zip code.

Basically, the difference between this 734 and the 735 is the 734 is single speed, while the 735 has two speeds (96 CPI and 179 CPI) with powered exhaust. The 735 also has 1/2" more capacity from 12.5 to 13 inches. The 734 comes with the in and out tables, the 735 does not, but the 735x does, as well as an extra set of blades.

Where the 735x really shines over the 734 is the fan assisted exhaust, two speeds that are nice for many woods that will save a lot of sanding and you get an extra set of blades.

How does the fan-assisted exhaust compare to hooking up a shop vac?

The fan assisted exhaust forcefully moves the shavings out of the machine where the shop vac can then just suck them in. It like having a booster in front and a very noticeable difference that saves a lot of unplugging. There is not a shop vac made than can suck the shavings from inside the machine that needs to get the shavings out the exhaust port.

That said, you may not have an issue with very dry hardwoods and taking the minimum cut. But, if you load the 734 with say soft pine and removing a lot of material, you will be clearing exhaust port plugs.

===========

PS: The 735 has a lot better resale in the used market that makes up for the initial difference in cost down the road..... the 735x with the in and out table is the model everyone wants when it comes to the DeWalt line. And if you are considering a spiral cutter, the two speed with the fan exhaust is night and day difference with the 735. It would be awesome if DeWalt sold the 735 without a cutter head to offset the additional cost of the spiral.

I almost bought the 735 last fall. Ended up with the Ridgid for less and have been extremely pleased. Not saying the Dewalt is a worse/same product, but for home garage I would not have had additional utility out of spending the extra couple hundred dollars.

That's what I figure. My husband and I are just getting into DIY and I imagine this will be more than enough for our skill level.

Unfortunately the Ridgid has been out of stock, at least around me for awhile.

Sure and with the LSA (Lifetime Service Agreement), the Ridgid is a viable option for the hobbyist.... especially if you have a service center close for any problems down the road.

But for comparison in quality, that is where it ends. The 20 pound heavier 735x has 20,000 rpm to the Ridgid 9,000 (better finish) with some serious differences in structural build, including the much larger Acme posts, forced exhaust, two speeds, etc.

Here is a decent comparison [youtube.com] of various brands, but realize snipe can be minimized by technique and table setup. Personally, we have used Makita for many years because we bought wholesale, but the DeWalt 735x is there as compatible in results.

Note: The DeWalt pulls considerably more than the 15amp rating (up to at least 25amps on start up and occasional load) and best on a dedicated 20amp outlet that typically protected by a 20amp delayed breaker and why they don't typically trip.
