Dewalt never again
Definetly do not use this router on a router table I burnt up two motors within a years time. Its cheaper to buy a whole new router then to replace the motor.
It's hard to interchange the motor from base to base.
I only use this router as a back up ,the only reason that I purchased this unit was that I needed a motor for the other bases that I have, I'll only use this router for light work .

As good as new and a lot cheaper.
This is a factory rebuilt router that works every bit as good as a new one. The DeWalt router has plenty of power and the depth guage is very accurate and easy to use. I would recommend this router to anyone who wishes to own a router that is a notch above the competition.

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 60 days.
