The DW618PK Router Kit features 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 versatile kit includes both a fixed base and plunge base giving you two tools in one. A micro-fine depth adjustment ring provides precise depth adjustments in 1/64 in. increments and adjusts vertically for a constant switch/cordset location.

  • 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
  • Adjustable, tool-free steel motor cam lock makes depth adjustment and base changes quick and solid-locking
  • Integral, through-the-column dust collection collects 95% of the dust and provides superior bit visibility
  • Quick release motor latches for fast and easy motor pack removal for bit and base changes
  • Detachable cordset offers cordset serviceability and removes the need for a shorty cord motor pack
  • Precision machined brass bushings and case-hardened steel guide rods provide a smooth and accurate plunge stroke
  • 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
  • Five position, adjustable turret stop assists in stepped or repeated plunge cuts
  • Easy to reach plunge lever and switch for superior control while routing

Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My second router in 25 years I bought this to replace a hand-me-down fixed-base router that died. This fixed base works very well. The plunge base took me a few tries to figure out; using the turret made no intuitive sense to me at first. The 'manual' is one-page in small font, and gives only basic instruction. The dust collector didn't fit the shop vac, but that was easily rigged. This thing is a howler though! August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy! Great power. Works extremely well on home handyman level. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice router Home owner and do woodworking around the house and for friends, so it does not get heavy use. Absolutely works great and always provides for a quality job. I really like tools that make me look better. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has a lot of optional uses due to all the many features. I am currently building a Display Cabinet which will be modified to hold Guns. As such, there are many requirements that are best handled by a router. This combo will allow me to set up a fixed based router in a previously built Router Table. I can easily remove the motor assy and use the plunge router for other options. I also like the fact that only one wrench is required. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with router. Just the tool I wanted. Used other routers and I really appreciate the power of 2.5 HP router. October 15, 2013
