6.5 Amp 1-1/4 HP Corded Plunge Base Variable Speed Compact Router Kit With Collet, Base, Straight Guide, (2) Wrenches is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.

The plunge feature is a must, you use it once and never go back to fix base. Easy to adjust, and repeatable. Exceded my expectations. Only bad point (and very bad): the outrageous price of the adapter washer and guide bushings. So high it forces you to look for alternate options. I dropped one star just because of it.

It is small enough for me to physically handle without "getting away from me and yet still powerful enough to take on any task I ask of it (within reason).

Haven't used it yet but if its like my other Makita fixed base router then I shouldn't have any problems. I got this to work on some door molding in my remodeled kitchen. Needed something smaller than a big plunge router and this one its great plus its a Makita product.
