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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sr242001 Disappointing Purchase
I am writing to complain of how saddened and disappointed Home Depot made me during the holidays. When Christmas came around I decided to buy my brother this router. I was in shock when the router arrived because when I opened the box, the router was all scratched up in the middle and full of sawdust; as if someone has used the router and returned it.
I called to complain and was told the easiest way to handle the situation was to return it to a HD local store and place another order.
The new order arrives and again it’s all scratched up so I call again to complain. Since it was the holidays and I needed a gift I decided to see if a third time was the charm.
The new order arrives and now there’s no router. Instead Home Depot mailed me an interior lamp. The lamp’s packing slip did state the correct order number and said it was for a Dewalt router yet inside there was a lamp.

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.

The router arrived as advertised and the product is perfect for my application. Dewalt delivers and Home Depot is the place to buy.

I have a 618 on my CNC machine with over 100 hours on it. I needed one for my router table so I bought a second 618. Love the tool.

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.
