If you have the pre-drilled for PC it will mount. You won't have a hole for the above the table height adjustment but you could drill one.

Absolutely love this router. I bought it for a couple reasons.. I needed a good plunge router, it has dust collection, it has the router table lift feature, and it fits SO many aftermarket base plates and jigs. So far I've only used it in my second router table and it has all the power I need. Used it with a couple ogee bits to edge. Using them to make new kitchen cabinet drawer fronts and new doors. As you can see from the pictures, it cuts fantastic. Though it sounds odd, I really like how the height adjuster handle has up and down on it. Funny but it's useful for me. The only thing I was bummed about is that the dust collection is only on the plunge base, which is not the base that goes in the router table. So wish they has something (even if I had to purchase) for dust collection on the fixed base. So odd there is nothing. Maybe there is a good reason I don't know about. But overall I am very happy with this router and would buy again without hesitation. Going to be making a number of dog holes in my new assembly table and I am sure this is going to be perfect for the job.

Still a novice user but this thing is a beast. Cuts with little to no trouble with even thick (3/4" or thicker) hardwood, MDF, and ABS plastic (small increments depth wise with the plastic). I personally use the ECO-Tray bit set from mobile solutions because my woodworking is car audio based. The plunge base(w/ vacuum attachment) is awesome to use with the Jasper circle jigs. It makes it very easy to make those perfect circle for subwoofer boxes. I have to say my biggest pro for this router is the adjustment features. Port-a-Cable really thought of it all. I will definitely be purchasing another one of these router motors for my future router table setup!

Fixed base height adjuster.
I have used this base twice on my router table. Both times the router drifts down while in use and makes shallow cuts. When I tried to tighten the clamp both times, the clamp cracked. I think it's a poor product design.

I haven't had much chance to use it yet, but the tool feels well balanced, easy to use, and produces a lot less noise than my previous machine. I love the soft start and don't feel like I lose control as soon as I turn it on. Get the centering cone for the base!
