Yep, scraping planes sure are nice, but a pain in the arse doing production work.

I had one of the newer DeWalt 13 inch planers and for the money can't be beat. Knives are double-faced. You can't use a vac
with them-only a blower discharge. They come with a blower that will out-run any vac system.

Not all of them have a blower. The 735 dewalt has a blower, but the 734 doesn't.

And you can jam up that little blower with shavings. Pretty easy to clean out, and using StaticGuard on the tube helps a bunch. (too small to wax)
My FIL and I (and his son and his FIL) have probably got over 300 hours of use out of his DeWalt. Our only complaint is we think the knives don't hold up as well as other (see 'older', 'industrial', 'Delta') units we have used before.
