Features include enormous cutter depth range of 80mm, quick height adjustment and an exact fine adjuster in 1/10mm steps with a zero function. Fine adjuster can also be locked to the base allowing easy base adjustment to the cutter. Once set the lock on the handle clamps to both columns simultaneously for total accuracy. The innovative dust extraction system ensures that a very high level of waste is removed with a combination of extraction ring, chip catcher and exhaust adaptor. The extraction ring is cleverly controlled from the handle to allow you to view the cutter for position, then lowered for extraction. The spindle lock has a rocker and ratchet system for fast cutter changing and the base can be changed without tools. When used with a guide fence or a guide rail the rods are offset at 30° to the machine for safer, easier, guiding and working.
Supplied with 1/2" collet, 30mm guide bush and chip deflector in a Festool SYSTAINER® storage case, or as a package with the accessory kit (702452). This comprises of four base plates, parallel side fence with fine adjustment, extraction hood, two guide rods, 17mm, 24mm, 27mm and 40mm guide bushes and a guide rail adaptor, supplied in their own T-LOC SYSTAINER®. case.

Good powerful toolI've had this router for about 6 mouths and it's a good powerful router,ideal for cutting work tops which is what I mostly use it for.The height lock takes some getting used to,but all round well made.Only downside doesn't come with the fence,only other router I've ever had that's close to this good was the old 1/2" Elu.

Best on the MarketI'm Really big on Festool, they produce some real show stoppers in the power tool market (Domino, Rotex, Kapex Eb-Plus Planer) to name a few. I had been in the market for another 1/2" in heavy for several months and debating several market leading brands, finally had to make the plunge (Excuse the pun) Whilst the Festool offering was the most expensive the depth of plunge was my deciding factor, the only bit of kit capable of plunging the full depth required on the 100+ mortice locks that needed fitting on a contract I was working on. Coupled with the Trend Mortice Lock Jig the additional cost was soon offset with reduced labour time spent on each lock, recovering the overall cost of both bits of kit on this contract alone. (5-10 minutes per lock)

Excellent machine, well balanced, high quality ...heavy howeverI am a big Festool fan and now only buy Festool. This is a superbly engineered machine, but given its power it is by definition heavy. I also have the lighter duty Festool OF1010 router and I use this much more but when I am using large 1/2 inch (12mm) shank big profile router bits on oak or hard woods I need to use the OF 2200 and I am glad that I have it on these occasions.....it avoids those black scorch marks.

Fence should be includedthis router isn't a toy its built to last, only one draw back it doesn't come with a parallel side fence as standard. When I'm paying in excess of £650.00 I would have expected it to be included. Now I'm going to have to pay an extra £282.50 for the accessory kit when I only need the fence, bit of a con if you ask me.
