Love it. I have seven routers. 2 for trim, 2 for router tables. 2 set up for jigs I have. This one I use for for everything else. Used it to make jigs for table saw and some inlay work. Very happy with results.

Great for all kinds projects projects
I’ve had this set for about two years now and use it regular for many different projects. Having all three bases really come in handy! It has plenty of power and makes clean cuts. Really great router and you can find good deals on this set around Black Friday.

Great versatility
Only problem I found is the plastic adjustment sleeve has two small stubs from the manufacturing process that make it catch in the groove on the motor until the plastic stubs wear down.

A solid, well made router. The interchangeable bases make this a router for near all applications. Great if you only own one or two routers. I own 12 routers and this is one of my favorites.

Great combo for the money
Works great for a 3 function router. I wouldn't recommend it for panel raising, but works very well for the tasks I've thrown at it. It would be nice if there was dust collection with the fixed and d-handle base. For me it didn't make sense to pay twice as much for festool since I'm using it on jobsites.
