Just holding it in the hands makes me feel like I am holding a quality piece. Flip of the switch and that feeling continues. The wood flies as you engage. So far it is as i would expect from a Germany based company, and the Bosch Name.

Solid performance!
Customer review from BoschTools.com logo
I purchased the router because i am building two nice bookcases for my daughter and daughter-n-law. I needed to dado and create a bullet edge for the top surface. The router is easy to handle and never faltered. I am working with poplar, which is softer than oak, but so far I am not disappointed. It was on sale also and that didn't hurt.

I bought this with the plunge kit about 4 years ago to use occasionally for home use. The 2610934197 Armature just burned out along with the brushes. It is so burned up where the brushes make contact that it needs to be replaced. BUT, the armature is now obsolete so now I am with out a router and will not purchase another Bosch product. There is no reason why a part this important should have burned out to the point where the brushes were grinding. I take care of my tools and clean after every use. I gave it one star only because it worked great when it actually worked. beware when spending your hard earned money..
