Thank you for your question. The 1617EVS does not come with a case. We do offer the L-Boxx-3 storage case that will work with this router.

12 Amp Corded Electronic 2.25 Horse Power Variable Speed Fixed-Base Router is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.

I selected this router based on 2016 buyer guides, customer reviews, and personal choice. I have had a few Bosch power tools through the years and I have yet to retire or discard one. It was a choice between this one and a Porter-Cable 2.25 HP fixed base unit which I actually bought and returned because the base for the in-store model would not accept a larger diameter bit I intended to use for my first project. The Bosch fixed base had a larger opening and would accommodate all the bits in a separate bit set I purchased. As a novice router user it was important to have an unobstructed view of my work through the fixed base. It was simple and easy to use, didn't break the bank, and has the versatility to use on a router table that I plan on purchasing. I recommend this router.

I already have one on my router table and purchased this one so I would not have to keep taking the one off of the table. But to my surprise it came with the base mounting adjustment which I needed for the table. Perfect...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great tool I am very pleased with the performance of this router, very easy to change bits and the variable speed makes routing perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power and very high quality construction Bought this to replace an old Craftsman router. It didn't fit my router table, but with a little machine work and careful planning, I made it fit and now my table is better than ever. Bit is easy to change and router is held securely to its base that is fastened to the table. The slower startup speed is a nice feature. The motor is quiet and very powerful. It blasted through a 3/4 oak board with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and smooth I bought this Bosch because I wasn't happy with my DeWalt router because of the sticky plunge action and man what a difference between the two. The Bosch feels so much better in your hand, smooth plunge action, minimum noise level and adjustment is also smooth. I am glad I bought a Bosch brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what a router should do I have not used the router for complex work nor have I used it with a table. The hand held work works great and it has the power to cut deep and smooth with little effort. The large handles give great control for a 2 1/2 hp router.

The only thing Bosch should do is make a covered switch. I plan to just do it myself with a little plastic or something. But overall I am happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This router is a master in my workshop I have been using this for a few months and it has never let me down. I am impressed with the build quality and it tackles all wood species with ease
