Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 133 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong, Reliable, Dependable I used this router for over 8 years. While working in construction as a finish carpenter, I saw and borrowed several different routers. For me, NOTHING compared to this router. There wasn't a job that i did that it couldn't handle. I had multiple jobs that i used it for from simple rounding over the edge to full out raised panels. When it came to flutting, and i did a lot of it, this router is the easiest to hold and manage. After doing several 8ft columns and two mantels with a few custom flutted cased windows and doors, at the end of the day, i was still able to grip it again for those last minute detail work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by router works great It has been years since i have used a router for any of my projects. I use to use an old craftsman router and it worked ok but this one is so much better. I have not even come close to using it for everything that it is capable of but i am sure it will do whatever you want it to. It is the smothest and quietest router I have used. If you are looking for one I would definetly recommend this one. December 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with the product I am happy with the product, especially the ability to adjust the bit height from above the router table. I have not used the plunge router accessory yet, but it appears to be better made than the one I had previously (a bargain brand). I would have given it 5 stars, except that it is lacking one feature that would make it better. A spindle lock is really handy when you have the router attached to a table. That way, you only need one wrench to change bits. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value This router kit represents a great value to the woodworker. The interchangeable bases allow the user to accomplish most any routing necessary. The "soft" start is nice as it is a very powerful router and this feature allows the user to maintain control while shuffling from switching the unit on and beginning to work the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I have been looking for! Do not bother to search any further, this product, in the short time I have used it is far more superior than the other brands I had previously used. This router is "GREAT"! March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best router ever! I bought this a a gift for a friend for his wedding. He said it is the best thing since sliced bread. Powerful, easy to use and a top of the line router. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Router Haven't had this router very long, but I absolutely love it. I haven't owned any other routers to compare it to either. But as a first time router-owner, I can vouch for this product. The plunge base makes quick, easy mortises in a flash. I haven't used the fixed base a whole ton, but it was very easy to use the few times I tried it out. I opted to buy the Bosch edge guide as well. Pretty solid investment if you're gonna own a Bosch router. The only thing that frustrates me-- it recommends you use 1/2" shanks when possible. But every time I use my only 1/2" bit (made by Bosch), it takes A LOT (A WHOLE LOT) of effort to get the bit out of the collet. I can't explain why, but it's the same story every time. But all-in-all, amazing router. Definitely don't regret this purchase. March 3, 2015
