15 Amp 3-1/4 HP 5-Speed Corded Router is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that it claims, soft start nice I have four routers already and this makes five.Although I do have a 3-1/4 router, I looked at this router for a long time just as an adjustable lift router. I was completely pleased with it's performance, power, speeds, soft start, it was great, and did not disappoint. Having the base is a plus and gives me more opportunity for other uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Router has the power to do the job I build a lot of decks, I use this router to cut the 5/4 decking boards off. I run the boards at random lengths then use a bearing guided router bit to cut right through the 5/4. I will purchase a new one if this one ever wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely well made tool I am a serious hobbyist woodworker who often does cabinet making and other jobs for friends. I love this router because it is equally useful mounted in a table creating joinery or freehand rounding over or creating various edges. There is more than enough power with this unit to perform any job, it has a smooth start-up. In addition to cabinet work, I have used this router to round over edges on pressure-treated wood used to build a large swing set in the yard. Just a great and versatile tool. highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought motor only Porter Cable is one of the best brands. This router is powerful enough for any bit. I put mine in a custom made router table. I bought the base thinking I *might* use it as a hand held router. NOT. Way too heavy and way to powerful to hold in your hand. 1/2" collet only! Good news, the 1/4" collet from any PC router will work. It is really hard to use a solid carbide 1/4" bit without a 1/4" collet :-)
