planer by the inch

was thinking of getting a larger planer and was wondering about the prices and the big jump in price as the planer width increases
mine is 13 max width but 20 makes sense but 16 shows a sweet spot

The DW734 must have been on sale. It's the lowest cost-per-inch on your chart.
You can find the DW735 for less than $572, if you're patient. I got mine at Lowes, they kept lowering the price every couple weeks until they sold one. (Then it went back to full price.)

Might be interesting to compare the weights as well...I bet most of us could not transport a larger planer to our workshop, let alone provide adequate killiwiggles to power it properly...

Price probably varies roughly as the cube of width.

well it was just for fun and to squeeze out a trend or pattern one would have to spend time gathering a lot of data
it is surprising how many makes and models there are out there i also embarked into the industrial zone
of course benchtop and floor models have little to compare
there are double sided planers and planer joiners seems door makers use large sanders that look similar to planers
