Very nice router

Very nice router that works well both in a router table and and as a freehand router.
Features useful in router table: Router height adjustable through hole from above table, the ability to lock the power-switch after having switched on the router, good fastening. Lots of power. The Axminster collet extension does come in handy, as some bits cannot be adjusted to desirable height.
Features useful freehand: Good dust extraction, LEDs to illuminate the working area, soft-start motor, soft (but not too soft) plunge, solid plunge-lock. The depth adjustment and locking is accurate and without hassle. Router guide bushing can be fitted or exchanged simply by pulling a small handle on the router base. Lots of power. Surprisingly easy to handle despite its weight.

Well made powerhouse

Very happy with this router, I had problems with my Bosch router so this is the replacement, I will never buy Bosch again as the quality of this machine is far superior, the carry case is great you do not need a degree to get in back in the box.

A Powerful machine

I have owned other Routers through the years . Elu and Dewalt ,Metabo and Trend.
I thought this looked like a good deal as experience with Trend was not so good . It is a solid powerful router has table mount features and LED lights which are a bonus .
Clip on template follower saves a lot of time .
Carry case is a good size unlike some where an IQ is needed to get the thing back in. I am impressed so far after fitting several kitchens and running through a fair amount of mouldings.
