Great product
I bought one because the ad looked good and I repect DeWalt. After receiving it and trying it, I decided that I want two of them to use in tandom for rough and finish cuts without having to adjust between the two...just set and switch routers for repetitive projects. Bought the second one with plunge router base to expand possibilities. Nice units.

Not sure......
I arrived fast, but missing the base plate.. CPO has yet to get back to be out his issue....even after several calls and emails... Router itself is in fairly rough shape, lots of nicks gouges in the housing and base unit.

Not sure i would ever buy cpo again...

The best trim router I've used
I have probably 20 routers in the shop, this one is different from the rest. When you turn it on it sounds weak but it's not. Incredible power for such a small router. It's much quieter than other trim routers. It has a spindle lock button so you only need one wrench. The height adjustment is the best I've seen. Very easily to adjust up and down or push the buttons and remove the base totally. This router is powerful enough to do some small profile edge detailing

I would like a second one
Excellent handheld router, I have another compact router but prefer this one due to ease of adjustment and power to weight ratio.

Super size and powerful! Love it!
Great size (Small, compared to some of the newer models out there now) powerful. I will be using it for mostly hand-held work, like making dove-tails. Really like the soft-start and build in speed control. It is very well made, reminds me of my first router which is now about 40 years old and still going strong. I want to add the centering ring,dust port, and round sub-base. May even get the plunge base and dust ring for that as well. This is my third DeWalt product and I am very pleased with all of them.

My next DeWalt product may be the 2 1/4 router with fixed and plunge base.

highly recomend.
I have only used a few times so far but it has great power for a small compact router. If you are looking for a compact router I highly recommend this one. I would also recommend purchasing it with the plunge base. Looks like a small toy. But it really does have enough power for most things your going to do in a home shop.

Handy Router, great LEDs shine on bit.
This is a great little router, easy to handle and adjust. I especially like the twin LEDs that shine onto the bit, making it easier to guide the cut!

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.
