Great Durable Router
I like the router and it has plenty of power. I have another one if something happened to this one. Currently, I use it with a router table.

Satisfied
This is my second one. The first one got destroyed because a bit broke off and fell down into the motor. My fault for not having the right size cover plate on it. I like the router and it has plenty of power. I would buy a third one if something happened to this one. I use it with a router table. Seems like it would be a little heavy for handheld.

Perfect for router table large bits
I bought it for use in my router table with a router lift. It works well especially for large bits requiring a lower RPM to work properly.

The only way to go
Very powerful, good price. Well built router and really the only way to go when you need a dedicated router for a table. This is a little much to handle on its own. Most all of the table manufacturers design their tables to be used with this machine. Cpo is the best, fast shipping good communication and reasonable prices.

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.
