Product Description

The DEWALT DW618PKB 2-1/4 HP EVS Fixed Base/Plunge Router Combo Kit with Soft Start is equipped with a 2-1/4 HP (maximum motor HP), 12.0 Amp electronic variable speed motor which provides the power to rout smoothly through the toughest hardwoods. Electronic variable speed with full feedback control for constant speed under load from 8,000-24,000 rpm and soft start to reduce start-up torque for enhanced control. The micro-fine depth adjustment ring provides precise depth adjustments in 1/64" increments & adjusts vertically for a constant switch/cordset location. An adjustable steel motor cam lock makes depth adjustment and base changes quick and solid-locking. Dust collection collects 95% of the dust and provides superior bit visibility. The precision machined brass bushings and case-hardened steel guide rods which provide a smooth and accurate plunge stroke. A spindle lock button allows for single-wrench bit changes. This unit features rubber overmolded handles and low center of gravity designed to provide best-in-class comfort, balance and control. It also offers a heavy-duty, precision machined, die-cast aluminum base and motor housing for durability and low tool weight. Self-releasing, long, eight slotted collets for better bit retention and elimination of frozen bits and the five position, adjustable turret stop assists in stepped or repeated plunge cuts. This unit also allows for micro-fine depth adjustment on plunge base 5/128" per turn for precise routing in veneer and inlays. Kit includes: DW618M motor pack, DW6184 fixed base, DW6182 plunge base, 1/4" and 1/2" collets, Wrench, Large hole sub base, Vacuum adapter and soft carry bag.

The first DW618PKB I received was dead on arrival (would not turn on). With the second one, the 1/4 collet broke the very first time I used it, less than a minute into the job.

This is a good very popular router. This kit includes the router with both bases, the bag (not box), the collet wrench, the 1/4" and 1/2" collets, a spare sub-base for larger bits, and a dust collector adapter for shop vacs,

The soft start is a very nice feature that lets you get your hand back on the handle without any kicking of the motor turning on. The plunge base is smooth and fairly simple to set the depth stops. I have mounted the fixed base in my router table, and between the quick release base and the spindle lock, bit changes are very easy.

4 stars for QA on Dewalt's part. I had to return the first one because there were manufacturing issues. The second kit is just fine and I expect many years of use.

I only recently bought this router and haven't had a chance to really put it to a test. I had the 1 3/4 horsepower model for years until it was stolen so I replaced it with this heavy duty version which I'm sure will be just as good if not better than my older kit. My only complaint is this kit didn't come with the centering cone for adjusting the sub bases center to the bits? I called the Dewalt service center and even though this kit doesn't come with a centering cone they are sending me one free of charge!!!! I'm a loyal Dewalt customer for life!!

I love this router. Very good quality. Having the adjustable speed is a nice feature for different types of wood. I use it for home projects, and have never had any issues. The only thing I would complain about this model vs a previous Porter Cable router I had, is that you have to hold the locking pin in place to tighten/loosen the bits
