12 Amp 2-1/4 HP Peak Corded Variable Speed Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit with Hard Case is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 304.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Although I have not used this Bosch router in all the ways possible, I love it! The smooth action... Although I have not used this Bosch router in all the ways possible, I love it! The smooth action and no lag during walnut edging is excellent. There is very little if any end chipping, all has been because of user error. I had a Ryobi router and in comparison to the Ryobi, Bosch router is way above in quality and workmanship. Plus I only paid $179.99 on sale. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big step up for me I bought this after my older other brand died. I needed a router that day and have been very happy that this model was available in the store. Was attracted to the 2 separate bases, used the fixed base at first. I would definitely buy it again, but hope that I don't have to. Lots of power, easy to change bits, easy trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit, great tool Lots of good engineering in this router. I'm particularly fond of the fact that the motor comes completely off both bases without tools and can also be used in my CNC rig. Very controllable with the soft start when using it for any manual routing. I'm very pleased with this setup

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Combo Pack Router 1617EVSPK I bought this router a while ago and it performs perfectly everytime. I also purchased the router table to go with the router and there isn't anything that i can't do with this conbination. Bit changing is fast and the whole unit lets me finish my projects quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set! I had to purchase a new router after another brand I had for years died. After thinking about the other brand I chose this kit and am really happy I did. Very smooth, precise, easy to work with! Thanks Bosch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Router This thing is a work horse! Very well made and solid. As long as your bits are good and sharp this router will handle almost any task you throw at it. Got mine for a very good price at a tool show.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased this router to perform multiple functions not destined for the router table. I have found the plunge routing capabilities of this tool to be excellent. I recently set the plunge router up with a Bosch fence to rout mortises and dados in the stiles and rails for a set of french doors I was making out of heart pine. Utilizing multiple sizes of upcut spiral router bits, the tool easily completed mortises 1 3/4" deep and dados 3/4" deep along the rails/stiles with ease. The router was a pleasure to setup and use and was quite capable in performing the task. Excellent product and an exceptional price/performance value. Nice job!!
