Customer Questions & Answers

Does the motor come with a cord. If not, does it need to ordered separately?

Does the motor come with a cord. If not, does it need to ordered separately?

Collet size

Can this motor handle a half inch collet for larger mass bits?
Asked by: Mike
Ni Mike, yes this can handle the 1/2 collet. Below is from the instruction guide. Collets NOTE: Never tighten the collet without first installing a router bit in it. Tightening an empty collet, even by hand, can damage the collet. Two collets are included with the motor: one 1/4" and one 1/2". To change collet sizes, unscrew the collet assembly as described above. Install the desired collet by reversing the procedure. The collet and the collet nut are connected. Do not attempt to remove the collet from the collet nut.

2-1/4 HP Electronic Variable Speed Router Motor with Soft Start is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The router works very well in my router table. ... The router works very well in my router table. It is smooth and has plenty of power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 year Warranty is laughable After 15 months, the speed control went out and the tool would only operate at max speed. I took it to the local authorized repair facility and was informed that because it was over a year old, it would have to be sent to Dewalt's repair facility in Norfolk VA. After sending it there I was informed that the warranty was not applicable. Here's the quoted portion from Dewalt's 3 year Warranty: "DEWALT will repair, without charge, any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship for three years from the date of purchase. This warranty DOES NOT COVER PART FAILURE DUE TO NORMAL WEAR or tool abuse." (caps in last sentence are mine). I was told over the phone that the extra 2 years basically applied only to safety recalls. I guess the warranty is limited to those who never take it out of the box. Five months later the motor went up in smoke - under no load! While I don't make purchases based on warranty, this ridiculous warranty has left such a bad taste in my mouth that I will never buy another Dewalt product again.
