Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Price and quality For what we use the this router for it is worth the money and quality is great too. We nearly use it every day. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy for the money Great router easy to adjust I have found it power will Handel all kind of jobs and it does not make as much noise as other routers I have owned February 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy with this purchase I am a professional cabinetmaker and have bought and used several PC 690 routers over the years. I purchased this one 6 months ago, and am extremely disappointed. The fit and finish is very poor. I tried to attach one of my older 690 plunge bases and it is so poorly machined I couldnt get it to fit. I do like the lever lock over the old style screw lock. I have since moved on to Dewalt routers. I recommend anyone considering a fixed base type router to get the Dewalt 618. I have since moved on to the Dewalt and will buy more as the budget allows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Workhorse router These routers are the workhorse of the construction industry, and I have had several in my career. I use this in retirement to do furniture and craft, and have two dedicated to router table duty, where they perform tirelessly. I just had one break, and realized I had purchased it, used, fifteen years ago from a cabinet shop, so it earned its retirement the hard way! Will I replace it? Is there any other at this price? November 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plenty good enough for the money This is my second router the other being another major manufacture. Porter cable name is stuck in my head from years of watching This Old House. Tools work great I have several other pieces for use in my wood shop. No issues at all. Wish it came with a case of some sort to store it in. October 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value. Good value at a great price. Lots of power for the size, and easy to handle. January 14, 2014
