Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Router! I purchased this router several months ago and have been happy with my purchase. I have used the router extensively and it has not let me down. I primarily use it in my router table, and I use my RIDGID laminate trimmer for other uses. The router bit height can be adjusted from the bottom with an included tool, so I don't need to get under the table to change the bit height. There have been times I've wanted a plunge base and haven't been able to find one available from RIDGID. It would be great to see a plunge base released. I know there were plunge bases available in the past. November 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Has plenty of power Have owned this for a couple of years now, and the unit performs well. But like another review I have a problem with what appears to be corrosion or some sort of oxidation. I only use the plunge base rarely and when I do i have to lightly sand the housing to get the motor to slide into it. Once that is done the unit works well enough. I don't have a problem with the base that is attached to the router table. I do have a dehumidifier that runs in my shop also. If the case problem is ever resolved it would be a great tool to have in anyones shop. December 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid performance. I purchased this router about 8 months ago. It is well built, and does what it is supposed to do. I use it mainly in my home constructed router table. The 2 HP motor doesn't miss a beat when feeding wood and other materials to it. I researched routers for around a year before finally settling upon this router. No second thoughts. Very happy with it ( even if it didn't also come with the Lifetime warranty). November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Router for Counters I've owned this router for over a year and have really found it to be a quality addition to my tools. Recently I needed to fabricate a couple of Corian vanity tops. The router performed flawlessly while edge forming and undermount sink installation. Easily handled my largest production bits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool. A must have I got my router with the fixed and plunge base. It has worked quite well for the number of times that I have used it. Easy to set up and use. Really going to be heart broken if and when my router finally dies on me. A truly great investment. November 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It is all that I want Very versatile and easy to use. I checked for other brands and but for the quality and warranty, it's the best for me. Recommand for everyone. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean work precision routing i bought this router when it came with the mini plung cut one also works great and easy to use makes work look clan and precise i like it and any tool that makes my job easier is great in my book March 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Over the top! So I spent over 2 weeks researching and looking at routers at multiple retailers. My final 2 came down to this model and another brand that was similar in most cases, even $10.00 cheaper. I selected this one because of the speed control, clear plexi plate, easy to adjust depth gage and the lifetime warranty. After bringing it home, prepping all parts and familiarizing myself with the device, I was impressed with how quiet and solid it worked. Not only was I sold on it when it was sitting on the shelf, I'm a FAN! Great product. Lifetime user! November 14, 2015
