Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Combo Great combo for the price! The router works well with no hiccups, the included bits are great because they are quite expensive when purchased separately. The only thing I'd change is the location of the on/off switch as you need to take 1 hand off of the router to get to the switch on top so there is room for error when finishing a cut and you are still in the wood

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tool I love this tool. There is a clear plexiglass that you can look thru to see it cut. Love the LED lights in it to see the lines

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition There'll be a 8.5 AMP corded router is a great addition to any Woodworkers cool collection I've used it several times since purchasing it and the results have been very good. One thing I find with the tool is the depth adjustment could have be made a little better but all in all I gave it a 4-star rating. I also purchased a Ryobi router table and I'm going to try it fix to the table and see what kind of results I get

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value router For the price this thing is a good workhorse. I have it fixed to my ryobi router table and have no problems with accuracy once I take the time to dial everything in. If you are looking for a powerful and versatile tool for your shop without spending too much, this is a great choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is an okay router. Good for light projects. This is a decent router for the money. It's restricted to it's base by not having a removable core and there is no way to fit it with a 1/2" collet though you wouldn't likely want to with it's power rating. It's good for what it's made to do and offers a competitive price for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mint router Great router, a bit hard to make micro adjustments but other than that it’s been great for making hobby signs and I’ve made some beautiful cabinet doors with it. Can’t beat it for $99!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from did what i needed it to (hinge cut-outs) works well. would be nice if switch was easier to get to while holding the handles. had difficulty making a precise depth adjustment. it changed the depth on its own after a few cuts
