Default Ridgid 4330 vs DeWalt 733

I have a rare opportunity, at least for me it is. I have in the shop two very good bench top planers, The DeWalt 733 and the Ridgid R4330. I plan to use both for at least 6 months (up to forever and I think I lean toward the latter!!!) I believe I have spent about 350.00 between them, which is less than I would have spent foe either one.

In preparation I built a temporary stand for the DeWalt Pic 1-2. The remaining pics are just of the machines.

May both machines win!!!

You suck. I've been keeping my eye out for decent planers and they are going within 2-4 hours of being offered.

Nice work on the stand.
