The DEWALT DW618K Router is designed with a 2-1/4 HP (maximum motor HP), 12.0 Amp electronic variable speed motor that provides the power to rout smoothly through the toughest hardwoods. This router features electronic variable speed with full feedback control for constant speed under load from 8,000-24,000 rpm and soft start to reduce start-up torque for enhanced control. A micro-fine depth adjustment ring provides precise depth adjustments in 1/64 in. increments and adjusts vertically for a constant switch/cordset location.

  • Detachable cordset offers cordset serviceability and removes the need for a shorty cord motor pack
  • Spindle lock button allows for single-wrench bit changes
  • Clear, LEXAN sub-base provides enhanced base durability, bit visibility, and accepts standard template guide bushings
  • Rubber overmolded handles and low center of gravity design provide best-in-class comfort, balance, and control
  • Dust-Sealed Switch protects against dust ingestion for longer switch life
  • Heavy-duty, precision machined, die-cast aluminum base and motor housing for durability and low tool weight
  • Nickel plated motor housing for a smooth, long-lasting depth adjustment
  • Right or left switch and cordset location provides the ability to have the switch in your right or left hand
  • Flat top for easy bit and depth changes
  • Self-releasing, long, eight slotted collets for better bit retention and elimination of frozen bits

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DW618 Review I am very pleased with this router. It is lightweight and not top heavy. I like the way that the motor rotates through the base to adjust the depth of the bit, making it is very user friendly. The soft start is a nice feature as well. Finally, 1/4" and 1/2" collets add to this machines versatility. I chose this router over the Bosch 1617EVS because it is compatible with Porter-Cable bushings used for creating dovetail joints. Bosch does sell an adapter for the PC bushings but I feel that less parts are better. My one minor issue is that this router is not equipped with any LED lights to make the work more visible. Again, this really is not that big of a deal. Overall, a great router. January 25, 2015
