Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy and Capable I love this little router! It has been capable of producing any edge-profiling job that I've thrown at it. Actually, it hasn't bogged down during any of it's duties in my shop. I love the soft start and it's easy to make small or large adjustments. Changing the bit is a breeze as well but what sets this router apart from others is its ease of use. It's lightweight and fits my hand well and the clear base with the LED makes it so easy to use I find myself routing things that I never would have taken the time to in the past. I have three other routers of various sizes from other manufacturers and they've been collecting dust ever since I brought this home over 3 years ago. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality for the Price I have only been using this tool for about two weeks now...but that being said, I have been very impressed with the power & lightweight nature of this compact router. I think that so far, it has been more than worth the money. It is easy to hold, adjust the depth, and change the bits, etc. I have been very surprised by the power this small router has. I hope it keeps up the good work, and I am looking forward to using it for a long time to come in the future. January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice tool I bought this laminate trimmer a while ago and finally got to use it a few weeks ago, It worked like a charm, very light and compact and the soft start is a great feature, it doesn't jerk out of your hand when you start it. This tool adjusts very easily up and down and locks tight. As a previous reviewer said, it would be nice to only need one wrench to change bits, but still not a huge deal. It also comes with a molded case which I like ,The other thing that is great is the long cord with the lighted picture on the plug, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you have multiple things plugged in it makes it easy to grab the right plug. Overall, awesome tool with a great warranty December 27, 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by My go to routers These little routers are great. I have two of the newer series and one older unit. They are always loaded with a round-over or bevel bit for quick work while finishing houses. The older one feels a bit nicer in the hand and the toggle switch is trouble free. The newer style switch has been intermitent on one of the newer routers. Just needs a little tap sometimes and it starts up. Might have to bring it to service one day. Great power , great value . No need to buy any other brand. February 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tool Bought it in hopes it could act as a trimmer, its intended use and as a router. I was not disappointed. It is comfortable and can handle shaping hardwoods with no problem. The depth adjustment could be easier to set but I can live with it. Bit changing requires removing the base and the use of two wrenches but it is a simple design that keep the tool bit secure and safe for the user. So less areas to break deeming the tool useless. Also love the life time service agreement. January 10, 2010
