The motor is variable speed and soft stars, the softest soft start I ever try.

And its still remain as the softest soft start I ever try

All weather switch.

Image

And what I like a about it is that the electrical chord is separated from the motor.

It has a quick change latch for all the bases changing from one base to another is a breeze.

Image

For fixed base and D handle dept adjustment is quiet simple just turn the adjustment ring clockwise or counter clockwise to achieve dept desire.

For the Plunge base it has a built in dust collector w/c you can plug to any standard shop vac. Also like the balance when the motor is attach to all 3 bases

All 3 bases and motor housing as I inspect it is very well made in fact rate from 1-5 5 is the highest I will rate this router 5 construction wise I will rate this a 5.

Image

The collets both ½ and ¼ is pretty tinny compare to my Triton but comparing to other routers falling to its line it’s the same, except for Porter Cable.
