Who knows what is in the minds of marketing. You may take note that on the product page, only the planer is shown. With regard to the demonstration though, you really have to have it mounted on something, and the universal stand with Herculift served that purpose just fine.
I believe the universal stand/legset is available as an accessory. As far as the Herculift, I don't know if that can be ordered directly from Ridgid or not. It is listed on their accessory page. I do know that Home Depot dropped it a couple of years ago and then brought it back for a short time and then dropped it again. One never quite knows what Home Depot is doing.
