Review

High Points:  At 4-9/16", this router’s base opening is largest among all 3+hp routers.  We like its two-wrench bit-changing system. Low Points:  Electronic controls ramp the motor up and d
own under load trying to maintain the preset speed, with little success.  Does not come with a 1⁄4" collet or adapter or any dust-collection hoods.  No flat edge on the subbase makes routing against a straightedge more prone to slight discrepancies. More Points:  The five-speed slide switch on top of the motor, marked in rpm, was easy to set when handheld, but difficult in a router table because you have to get down on your knees and look up to see the settings.  You rotate the motor in the base for height adjustments, but each movement changes the location of the power switch and speed selector.  This router’s motor works in most router lifts.
