Features

Give stock a smooth finish with a precise depth cut each time with the DEWALT® 12-1/2-Inch Thickness Planer with Three-Knife Cutter-Head. It boasts a powerful 15-Amp motor and a cutter head with 3 knives that make 96 rotating blade cuts each inch. The planer also makes snipe less likely with a cutter-head carriage that can lock into place on its 4 support columns, and with 2 elongated, 33-1/2-inch feed tables. The DEWALT thickness planer features with a material removal gauge that indicates the precise pre-plane depth of cut, as well as a turret stop with 4 pre-sets for repeat planer cuts. The knives can be changed easily on pins, and they are reversible, so one blade set has a 30 percent longer cutting life.

Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Planer I bought this about 3 weeks ago and I'm so happy I did. It really opens up my options to different woods. It's nice to no longer be restricted to dimensional lumber.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable cuts for what it is I have been using my planer for 2 years now and it still cuts just as nice as when I bought it. I am just leery of running larger stock through like large rough cut(I also have a sawmill). Just a little in-feed out-feed table adjustment when sniping happens, keep sharp blades in, she does the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied one year relationship! Bought my DeWalt DW734 exactly one year ago with stand, infeed and output tables and extra blade set. First planer I've ever owned. Setup of stand and planer seemed to take a little longer than expected but we're very happy with the results. Original blades have yet to be sharpened or replaced despite some hard home workshop use. Best of all, no sniping! Just remember to take smaller bites and make more passes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier! I purchased this planer a couple of weeks ago based not only on positive reviews, but because it was used in the Fine Woodworking video demonstration of planer sleds. My thoughts were if it's good enough for someone of that skill level, it will certainly meet my novice needs. Prior to this planer, I had owned an older model Makita 2012, a cast iron monster that performed excellently. I sold it a few years back, when my woodworking took an abrubt hiatus. Now that I'm back into it, I found myself needing a planer, and I haven't been disappointed. The planer is sturdy, well-contructed, and nearly ready to go right out of the box (with the exception of mounting the dust hood and crank handle). The motor/cutter-head assembly travels easily on the carriage, and the carriage-lock feature helps to reduce snipe. In fact, when planing longer material, I had absolutely none, and this with no other adjustments. I'm currently working on building a sled to face-joint wide boards, and I have no doubt it will suit my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I do a lot with 2x material and always run it through this unit and it does a great job of cleaning the material up before i hit it with the sander. I get very little snipe. The product was easy to get setup and use. I had it up and running in a short amount of time after getting it out of the box. The unit was heavier then i was expecting which is a good thing but not something I move around much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Awesome After working on a couple projects last year I decided it was time to get a planer. I couldn't afford the one that was the next step up from this one, but I'm very happy happy with my purchase. I've gotten very little snipe and dimensioning my wood has been a breeze. It's loud as the dickens though, so hearing protection is highly recommended!
