Best bang for your buck
Got this set because of a wall-to-wall shelving job I'm doing (routing out grooves for sliding plexiglass doors as well as profiling the faceframes). I've had an old [...] router that I got for free but I wanted to ensure quality and I have not been dissapointed. I like that Dewalt includes a case big enough for all the attachments AND there was even room for the extra fence that I bought (how sweet is that?) The router itself has plenty of power and while I can't say I'm too familiar with plunge or D-handle router bases, they seem to be designed to be pretty self-explanatory and I'm looking forward to using this set on a lot of other projects.

Awesome, that's it
The soft start is a nice feature and variable speed. Comes with different bases for smaller to bigger bits. All in all its a great package for the price.

A solid, well made router. The interchangeable bases make this a router for near all applications. Great if you only own one or two routers. I own 12 routers and this is one of my favorites.

Can't wait to do more!
Always just wanted a router, My Sister finally gave me the excuse I needed .. Don't know why I waited 20+ years to Play with a great tool like this! Maybe waiting to get the high quality of the Dewalt unit. Splurged for the big kit, am really glad I did. Would have kicked myself if I hadn't!!!

One of my best decisions
I have used my router and all its attachments and found it to be a very productive piece of equipment in my shop. The carrying case protects your investment well and the performance is what I expect from DeWalt. This router has ample power for my furniture making needs.

The Best Hand-Held Router!
If the majority of your use is hand-held, this is the router (and system) for you! Its simple design and small size makes a great choice for the "one router" shop. The three bases helps meet any use. I've got this as my hand-held and the big 3HP for my router table. What a great combination...Great work DeWalt!

Great combo for the money
Works great for a 3 function router. I wouldn't recommend it for panel raising, but works very well for the tasks I've thrown at it. It would be nice if there was dust collection with the fixed and d-handle base. For me it didn't make sense to pay twice as much for festool since I'm using it on jobsites.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
