Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding and prompt service This was a replacement motor for a table router. Works perfectly. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful Router Motor Bought for my Shark CNC. Good power, runs for hours. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router! This is a great router, I already owned one that I use in my Shark CNC machine so I purchased another one to use on my router table and as a plunge router. March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christmas gift This was a gift for my husband. He loves it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a router. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great addition to a router kit I recommend this to anyone who wants to simplify router use by not having to remove their Bosch from the table whenever they want to do do free hand work. This is my second Bosch 1617 motor, the first lives in my router table, this one is for free hand use. I already have the fixed and plunge base, so this saves money and effort Bosch gear is near the top on performance, power, fit and finish. I don't understand why the same motor with the short cord (perfect for the table) is more than this one with the long cord, but such are the vicissitudes of tool life. December 18, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased for my CNC router table This Bosch router is powerful yet quiet. Previously had a Dewalt 2 1/4 HP router it lasted about 2 years on my router table, I will wait to give a five star rating on my recently purchased Bosch 2 1/4 HP 1617 EVS model after I see how long it operates on my table. Require's two wrenches to tighten router bits, so I have to use one of my fingers to hold the router bit from falling and also hold the wrench which holds the router shaft from turning, while I use the other wrench to tighten the Collet nut. But you can also put a wooden block under the router bit to hold it up as well, other than that its a solid product. And I like that it is quieter than th Dewalt router. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second Router I've had a Bosch 1617 for 13 years, and used it all the time in my router table as well as the plunge base. Now that I have the new soft-start variable speed motor, it will be dedicated to the plunge base. This is a high quality, precision made router system, that should last for years. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good investment easy to use, runs continuous with no problem. cuts through 3/4 plywood with ease September 30, 2014
