What happens when you remove the impeller from the planer?

The DW735 thickness planer comes with an impeller for removing chips, but I always run my planer connected to a dust collection system. I started to wonder if the impeller was even necessary at that point, or if it was just robbing energy from the cutterhead, so I removed the impeller for a test. I’ve been using it without the impeller for several months to make sure it wasn’t going to cause any issues with dust buildup or overheating. So far, so good, so here’s a video showing how and why it was done.

Original power-draw comparison:

In this video I’m using a DeWALT DW735 planer with a Byrd Shelix cutterhead installed.
