Great router in general but especially for the price
I’m using this for my cnc router. So far it’s working amazingly well. It’s a little loud, but no more than any other router. It’s compact design is perfect. I feel like this router was a great deal

Fantastic Palm Router
I purchased my DeWalt Palm Router a little over a month ago with a flush trim bit and a 1/4" straight bit. It is being used to help create an NCO Induction Archway for my Army Reserve unit. If I had not purchased this tool, I would still be hand sawing the paneling. I think it is a great tool to own.

Very good product except for the plastic sub-base. Make sure you buy extras because I cannot find a metal one to fit this product. Used mine for 10 minutes and the plastic sub-base broke. Manufacturer surely can do better than this cheap plastic on a great product.

The motor is going to power my CNC router. Although, I do like the compact size for handheld work too. Very useful size.

I have used this tool in the past and now I have my own, I love the power it has and ease of use as it is light weight and small enough to handle without feeling awkward. My only concern is how hot the base and cutter gets in use. So hot I have to stop production. Now I'm not sure if it's just because it's brand new and running at its optimum potential and the carbon brushes are somehow making the tool run faster which is heating it up so much, but it gets so hot I am worried it could damage the cutters. Eliminating the hardness of the cutters. If the tool did not heat up the way it does, I would not have a bad thing to say about it whatsoever it's a great machine and one I would recommend - assuming the tool will cool over a short amount of time... I gave 4 starts on value and quality only because of the tool heating to a degree where I can't handle the tool until it cools, which could ultimately hurt the cutters that also become super hot, too hot to touch. I have to immediately put them in oil. I do truely love this product. And would recommend it to others. The over heating may just be a problem with this one machine.

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.
