This is a very versatile tool with interchangeable bases and is specially designed for flush trimming and rounding of protruding edges. Its unique ball bearing guide brake ensures perfect, streak-free working results. The motor, being in the vertical position, allows for a wide range of hand routing functions, guiding the cutter where needed. With the extended trimming base fitted, the motor is now in a horizontal position. The bearing assembly then guides the cutter to give accurate trimming of solid edges and laminates, exerting pressure where needed. Extraction outlet fitted on the base for optimum extraction. The 720W motor has an electronic speed adjustment switch to ensure maximum power and speed selection depending on material and cutter. The motor also has a temperature monitor for long service life. This tool has a 27mm extraction outlet. Supplied as a PLUS version in a SYSTAINER® T-LOC case with the following accessories: 1/4" and 8mm collets, ball bearing brake and chip deflector.

Fantastic! Should have been my first routerThis is the third style of Festool router which I have bought. In retrospect since I found routing a bit daunting (and self taught), I think it should have been the first one as it is so useful and so easy to set up. I now regret not buying the "Set" as I can see that the side fence will be a great asset. I accept Festool's logic of using 8mm bits for strength in a smaller machine but finding router bits that diameter isnt easy -there are Dewalt sets as well as their own. The engineering is amazing, it is a simple concept brilliantly constructed.

not perfect,but not too far awaywe were hopping you would improve the design by adding a handle which already have 4 fixing point, it will make life great deal better on wrist and hand on daily bases if you are using it every day which we do,this is our second festool trimmer we love how it works, its a beautiful the best tool out there in the world. but it would be an amazing machine if Manipulating handle was to be added to body,it would beat every tool out there hand down. thank you and hope our cousins in Germany are reading this.
