This router is ideal for handling smooth groove cutting, chamfering, window cutting, trimming, shaping, and pattern cutting in a variety of materials, including hardwoods.

  • Unique quick and fine adjustment knob combines both functionalities into the same mechanism to quickly and accurately dial plunge depths

  • Weighs 13.9 lbs. making it safe and stable for freehand routing

        I use it to make trim & base board. It has lots of power, I like how easy it is to set up. The only think I do not like, it is hard to get cutters in the collet. I have to check the tightness of cutter a lot.

          Good tool. A little getting used to like any other new tool in the workshop. The weight and power of the tool gives pertty great confidence in working with it. It is an excellent choice for those who have a router table, however, the screws are not standard for attachment.

          As a plunge router and standard combo, remember to take the springs out if need be. I almost wrecked it by over extending the length of the extention. No problem, got it working over the evening. Best to study the instructions I recon.

          Bought this to replace a Triton that was great but blew the armature and has limited parts availability and a short warranty. The Hitachi is the closest in features for using in a router table. It can be adjusted through the table top with minor modificacions and you can change bits from the top. Very powerful
