Good Router at a Great Price

nice router for the money
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.

variable speed not good
The variable speed wheel is in a great spot but, when first turn on after been sitting for a while it won't start, till move it a little then it starts some times it dies back a little then have to fiddle with it again.

THIS ROUTER HAS ALL THE POWER YOU WILL NEED TO DO YOUR JOB. FROM IT'S 3 1/4 HORSEPOWER TO BEING ABLE TO ACCEPT BOTH 1/4 AND 1/2 ROUTER BITS. THE PRECISION TO WHICH YOU CAN MAKE DEPTH ADJUSTMENTS. ONE OF THE BETTER FEATURES IS THAT YOU CAN HAVE 3 PRESETS TO CONTROL YOUR MAX DEPTH. I LOVE TO MAKE FURNITURE. AND IT'S GREAT THAT I CAN USE THIS FEATURE TO MAKE ACCURATE DEPTHS WHITHOUT A LOT OF READJUSTING AND MEASURING.

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.

Router Table Winner
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
