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
