A solid, well made router. The interchangeable bases make this a router for near all applications. Great if you only own one or two routers. I own 12 routers and this is one of my favorites.

Great combo for the money
Works great for a 3 function router. I wouldn't recommend it for panel raising, but works very well for the tasks I've thrown at it. It would be nice if there was dust collection with the fixed and d-handle base. For me it didn't make sense to pay twice as much for festool since I'm using it on jobsites.

Always just wanted a router, My Sister finally gave me the excuse I needed .. Don't know why I waited 20+ years to Play with a great tool like this! Maybe waiting to get the high quality of the Dewalt unit. Splurged for the big kit, am really glad I did. Would have kicked myself if I hadn't!!!
