Built for durability, accuracy, and power, this rugged 3-1/4 hp plunge router is a true workhorse. With a beefy five-speed, 15 amp motor that maintains a constant speed under load, this router is up to any task. Designed with 100% sealed ball bearings, the bottom bearing in the motor is closer to the workpiece, giving it the least vibration and run-out. A precision-machined aluminum motor housing prevents the heat build-up that can damage motors. Router bits will not become "frozen" or stuck in the collet due to an exclusive auto-release design that frees the collet from the arbor as the locking nut is loosened. Though a 1/2 in. collet is provided, collets are available for 1/4 and 3/8 in. shank bits. The convenient plunge mechanism with fully enclosed springs allows easy entry of bits when cutting into the surface of a workpiece. A plunge depth of up to three inches can be easily controlled with a six-position step turret and depth rod. Truly built for power, this router packs a punch. However, the soft start makes startup safer and easier on the operator. Great for the production shop, countertop fabricators, and furniture makers. When used in a router table it can also act as a shaper for shops with a smaller budget. Includes plunge router, 1/2 in. collet #42950, two collet wrenches #42596, and operator's manual.
