So far , I am very pleased with the router. It has plenty of power and is easy to adjust. Just finished making an exterior door and it handled the large cutters with ease.

Good medium-duty router

The DW618 is a solid machine that plows grooves, cuts mortises, rabbets, and trims edges as well as any comparable router Ive used. Highly recommended.

Neat router

Very easy tool to use. Starts easy, starts slow speed, very easy to handle! Oak doesn't slow it down! Great price! Price beat the heck out of Lowes. Lowes doesn't always means they are the lowest price!!!!!!!
