I also have the DeWalt 735 and I think it's the best portable planer on the market today. The 735X includes the in and out feed tables. I have owned 3 planers, and the previous 2 sniped very badly, so badly that the first and last 6-8" of the boards were 1/8-1/4" thinner. This is a terrible waste when planning an expensive board that is only 3' long. The DeWalt 735 does not snipe when it has the in and out feed tables, and they are adjusted correctly, and I have run pieces as short as 1' through it without problems. I can see a snipe line when planning soft woods, but it's so slight, mabe only a few thousandths, that a few swipes with 150 grit sandpaper witll make it invisible.
Planers make a lot of chips fast, and will fill up a dust collection system very quickly. I use my 735 outside my shop. It's attached to a Miter Saw/Planer Stand, that folds and moves like you would a hand truck, so I can store it with the planer attached to it, on end in my shop, taking only about 3 sq ft of floor space, but I can easily wheel it out into the driveway and lift the stand and planer into position very easily (it's a very heavy planer at 95 lbs). The stand that I have is a Delta, but DeWalt makes a similar and slightly better version of it. It is the DWX726 https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-Miter-.../dp/B0066N7C74
Because the planer is so heavy, this stand has proven to be the best way for me to move it in and out of my shop, as well as provide support for the planer when in use. Gas springs in the stand help when lifting or lowering the stand, so it's much easier for this old man to do. Because the mounting points of the 735 are not the same as those of a miter saw, I had to use a piece of plywood between the planer and stand with different hole patterns to adapt the planer to the stand, but this was quite easy to accomplish. I made it to fit the planer, and then just added holes to match the rail spacing of the stand. A few bolts and it was done.
With it's internal chip blower, the 735 does not need to be connected to a dust collector. I have the hose and barrel cover accessory originally offered by DeWalt, so I attach the barrel cover to a 55 gallon plastic barrel, and as long as the draw string on the cover stays tight, all of the chips and dust from the 735 end up in the barrel. This accessory is no longer available from DeWalt, but a very similar design is available under the Black & Decker name for use with a lawn and leaf vacuum https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-...G1FCFD1KAFAP3G
and I believe that it's the same thing as the one originally offered by DeWalt for use with the 735, but I haven't actually tried it.
When the cover doesn't stay on the barrel, I have sometimes had to clean the chips out of my neighbor's pool, which is located behind my shop. Lately, I have added some duct tape to better secure the cover, as I now no longer trust the draw string alone to keep the cover on the barrel. When doing serious amounts of planning, I can fill that barrel in about an hour. As long as they aren't black walnut or treated lumber, or some other wood that is dangerous to animals and plants, I use the chips as mulch in my gardens. The dangerous chips get bagged and put in my trash, to be picked up by the city.
Although a drum sander ,like
(Theo) posted, can be quite handy, it is not a good way of changing the thickness of boards, unless you only need to remove a few thousandths of an inch from the boards. It will take hours and lots of sandpaper to remove 1/4" of board thickness.
