Details

The Bosch PR20EVS Colt variable-speed palm-grip router puts routing power and precision in the palm of your hand. The PR20EVS has an ergonomic palm-grip design with softgrip to make it very comfortable to hold, yet it also has ample power, making it typically easier to use than larger routers. It's more than a just a laminate trimmer, as it is the ideal tool for putting roundovers on deck railings, mortising for hinges, slot cutting, and much more. The motor features soft-start, a variable-speed control, and Constant Response circuitry to maintain speed under load. The PR001 fixed base features macro- and micro-fine depth adjustment. The PR20EVSK also includes a self-releasing 1/4 in. collet chuck, comfortable forged bit-changing wrenches, edge guide and a case.
Features:
  • 1 HP, Variable-speed 5.7 amp motor delivers 16000 - 35,000 RPM
  • Rugged aluminum fixed base - Durable, solid and precise
  • Fast and precise depth adjustment system - Allows both macro and micro adjustment
  • Unique finger support pockets - For additional stability, especially when trimming hedges
  • Enhanced bit capacity - Fixed-base accepts bits up to 1-5/16 in. in diameter
  • Softstart - Reduces start-up torque
  • Constant Response circuitry - Monitors and maintains speed under load for consistent performance and provides overload protection
  • Convenient front spindle on motor - For easy, one-wrench bit changes
  • Quick-clamp system - Allows motor to be easily adjusted or moved from base to base
  • Palm-grip design - The most comfortable router in its class
  • Angled cord exit - Helps keep cord out of the way

Colt Palm Router
Bought this router late last spring and finally had a chance to really use it. What a great little tool. The small base took a pass or two to get accustomed to compaired to my fullsized router. The small size and light weight make it a pleasure to use. Speed and power were execllent. I liked it so much I will probably get the plunge base.

My old trimmer stopped after 25 years.
Replaced my old Bosch trimmer with this one. The old trimmer was great and I expect the new one to outlast me.

Small size, big power!
I've had this Colt for about 6 months now, and have about 50 hours of use on it. It's incredibly versatile, unexpectedly powerful, and VERY well designed. Easily the most comfortable palm router on the market.

All of that, backed with the Bosch name? I never have to worry that my Colt is going to give me any problems.

Highly recommend!

Quick and easy to setup. Gets the job done in short order. Bought this router about a year ago and hardly ever use my larger 2.5 hp unit any more.

Multi function little powerhouse!
I waited almost a year (felt like several before purchasing the Colt when I was finally able to snag the variable speed unit on sale. Being a hobbyist, I can't always justify spending the extra money on the big name, more expensive tools. But after hearing such great things about the Colt I was determined to get one as long as I felt like I was getting at least a bit of a deal.

Within the first month it quickly became one of the most used tools in my shop. The small size and powerful little motor makes it incredibly versatile and easy to use. As others have mentioned, it performs the majority of any routing tasks. Besides using the router table, my full size router barely makes an appearance anymore, compared to the Colt it now seems quite big and cumbersome.

Overall I would definitely recommend the Bosch Colt, it is well worth the money even for the hobbyist woodworker or diy homeowner. It also feels like a quality, well built unit that should last quite a while.

My go to router
I've owned this palm router for about 2 years now and am a "serious hobbyist". I've used it for edge trimming, rounding over work pieces, and inlay work. Unit works flawlessly. I find myself using this more than my larger router, even though the larger router has more power. I just slow down a little bit and this unit is so much more of a joy to use. I would buy this unit again.

This router has been a great addition to the workshop. I have a full size Bosch router that I love, but it seems I often just grab the Colt. I have used it effectively for everything from lettering to flush trimming. It has proven to be ease to adjust and use. Wouldn't want to work without it now.

Will this work to cut 3" X 4" oval shape 7/8" thick wood?
Cracker on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend using Colt Variable Speed Palm Router to cut an oval shape in 7/8" stock. That would stretch the capabilities of this tool. Cut this shape on a bandsaw or use a jigsaw.

What size bit do I need for this. I purchased a set that said would fit all models and can not get the bit to fit.
Tina on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1. The collect accepts standard 1/4-inch bits to give you job flexibility, with a maximum diameter of 1-5/16 inch.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
