Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Router for Commerical Use This is the second one i have owned, the first failed after about 1300 hours of heavy use in a CNC machine. The first one lasted longer than i expected and the new one is performing at the same level so far. Excellent value for the money July 29, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful!! Got this router for my 30th birthday and started to work with it right away. I was working on putting up wainscoting in the bedroom and needed to put a groove down the shelf board that set on top. I was using maple and the router ate right through the wood perfectly! This router has variable speeds which is nice and the power buttons are easy to reach while working with it. I also bought a straight edge guide to use with this until I get a router table and it worked great also. The only con with this product is that it's carrying case latch was a little cheap to close the case (kept trying to pop open...) December 27, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have owned this model for about six months. The router functions well, the soft start feature helps to control the initial tourq, the 1/2 inch collet grips well and the switches are easy to reach and provide tactile feedback. the speed control is easy to use and set. I recieved two 1/4 inch collets in the case and had to return to the store for a 1/2 inch collet. The 1/4 collet slips unless it is very tight. The shaft lock device bent after about a week. I fixed it myself and now use two wrenches to tighten bits in the collet. That is my only gripe, a stonger lock would be great. I have never had an issue with vibration or balance. The router has never bogged down in hard oak I usually work with. I would buy this router again and I would reccomend it to a friend with the caution to go easy on the shaft lock. November 5, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Powerful Router This is my 3rd router and I studied a few routers before purchasing this one about 2 years ago. The depth adjustment is made with an up/down motion which keeps the power cord in the back of the unit. There are 2 power switches one of which is within thumbs reach of the handle. I also like that the dual location power switch extends beyond the top when on. This allows it to be shut off by bumping the switch or placing the router upside down on a flat surface. I've had no problems with the depth adjustments or locking mechanism. As others reported, my collet locking pin broke, but that was due to a personal brain lapse. Luckily this router accepts two wrenches for bit replacement, not all do. I consider the variable speed to be a must when using bits 3/4" & over in diameter. A plunge base can be obtained for this router. My only complaint is the router is a bit heavy making it awkward to use on vertical applications (which is not common, for me). But that's the trade off for the extra power which is nice when routing harder woods and using larger bits. November 17, 2010
