Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Router I purchased this router mainly for cutting recessed housings in timbers. The machine is well-balanced, and plenty of power for the work. I would certainly recommend purchasing this unit, as it has performed very well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing parts Solid Tool but...Router showed up early but missing the 1/2” Collet. Called Dewalt and went through the process of sending out a replacement. Had to call a second time and run through it again since they never sent the part. I typically purchase Milwaukee and just may stick with them from now on.
