Great Router!
I installed the router permanently in a table. It works very well, but raising and lowering the bit is very clumsy at best. There is a knob availale for that, but it's $30 wherever I've seen it.

this product is very reliable
One of my favorites routers, easy to work with ; I count on this versatile tool for I can switch from one bit to another since I have many different sizes bits and this tool alows me to use it's two collets sizes 1/2 and 1/4...

areat router for table use

August 23, 2014
overall a good value
I bought this router to replace a Model M12V Hitachi router. What I miss most is the 1/4 turn collet to tighten and loosen the bit and the collet lock of the m12v. Also the 1/2 inch collet you have to completely remove collet and bit and beat it out with a hammer. Otherwise does a good job with plenty of power.

Great router for the money !!!
This is a really great router Soft start and all !!! comparable to others that cost twice the money !!!! The reason I gave it a 4 rating is it doesn't come with a height adjustment handle which makes height changes a little cumbersome having to use a wrench .

Good Solid Value
This router seems to be built very well, and is very powerful. It feels like it will last a long time. I wish it came with the fine adjust knob though, I cannot even find where to buy one anywhere!
