Very good product, easy to set up. installed on the table i bought for it with no problems. It was missing a small set up tool. Home depot took care of the issue right away without me have to contact the Dewalt. That was nice.
It works and i am now producing my own small runs of flooring, paneling and frames.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nellie Dewalt 21/2 HP Router
I have so many reasons I selected the Dewalt 2 1/2 HP fixed base router. 1. Power 2. Variable speed 3. 1/4 & 1/2 collet 4. Ease of bit change out 5. Detachable power cord for safety 6. Built by Dewalt
I use this router for jig joiner work and it has proven to be perfect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sum0102 Excellent router with a major flaw
When it works, it is an excellent router and of tremendous value compared to other brands. I believe this may be suitable for handheld work but it definitely is not suitable for router table mounting. The smallest amount of dust that creeps into the router will blow the electronic variable speed control. I've had this happen to me twice in a 6-8 month period. What you're left with is a single speed 24,000rpm router that still works. No thank you. I switched out with a Triton 3.15hp unit. Again, this may be fine for above table work but I def cannot recommend it for mounting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BroD Happy with my purchase
I purchased this router about a month ago. I have used it on about 6 projects with great results. I have used a old router that belonged to my dad and had a lot of flaws in the cuts. This router has the slow start feature along with the verible speed selector that help get a good clean cut. I could not believe how easy this router opperated compared to other routers I have used. Highly recommend it too anyone that wants a high quality router at a reasonable price. It worked so well it gave me confidence. On any project I am trying to build.

Bought this to replace a very cheap ryobi router. This has enough power to do what I need it to do +some. Another great dewalt product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frankk This is a powerful router. It works great on my CNC
The router is dedicated to my homemade CNC router. The router I had was 1-1/4 HP and could not take heavy cuts or the speed the CNC is capable of. This one allows me to use 1/2" shank bits with larger diameters, plus more profiles than available in 1/4" shanks. The soft start and speed control are features worth having, particularly when doing engraving. The spindle lock is much better than having to use two wrenches. The attached photos show it installed on the CNC. I am extremely happy with its performance.
