This package comes with a fixed base, but it's also available as a kit with both fixed and plunge bases.

Power and Performance

The DWP611 compact router features a 1-1/4 peak HP motor that delivers significantly more power than competitors' models to help you be as productive as possible. The variable speed control helps you to better manage the tool and determine the speed that is best suited for the application at hand. A low, contoured grip that is close to the work surface also contributes to an excellent level of control--providing both precision and productivity on the job site. The soft starting motor features full time electronic feedback that maintains motor speed through the cut. An adjustment ring enables controlled bit depth changes to within 1/64-inch.

Comfort and Convenience

The fixed base's dual LEDs and clear sub-base ensure maximum visibility in operation. The extended 1/4-inch router collet provides greater bit contact with the bit shaft than traditional routers, allowing you a firm grip on the bit and less vibration. The D-shaped sub-base provides stability and flatness when running edge profiles, and the spindle lock has been designed to greatly improve the ease of bit change by incorporating a large button that can be actuated with the same hand that stabilizes the router.

The router also features two tabs that allow for a quick and simple base release, and a new base/adjustable clamp design so the motor location is maintained through the toughest applications.

Warranty

This DEWALT tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase).

I've been looking for a small router for small jobs (mainly routing small roundovers and chamfers) on projects, so that I could leave my big router in the table.

Pros:
1. Easy to adjust. The adjusting ring moves smoothly and it's easy to get the perfect depth of cut.
2. Well built. I prefer the feel of this to the equivalent Porter-Cable model
3. Spindle lock! It's nice to not have to mess with two collet wrenches.
4. The LED's are handy for lower-light situations.

Cons:
1. Would've been nice if it came with a case.
2. Can't change the bit without removing the motor from the base. Not a big deal though, so I'm not even deducting a star.

I have been using this router for the past month on almost a daily basis and am very satisfied with its performance. It's not too heavy for the trimming work that I use it for, bits are easy to install and remove, the height adjustment works well for fine-tuning the depth of cut, and the clear base and light really help a lot in seeing exactly what the business-end of the router is doing. It's the first soft-start tool I've owned and in the future I'll never want one without this feature. My only reservation concerns how comfortable this router would be for long sessions of production work. Perhaps it's just what I'm used to from past trimmers or the result of my aging hands, but I think my hand would get fatigued if I used this router for 20-30 minutes It's not as comfortable as some I've used. That said, it's not often that I would use it for long stretches and its other great qualities far outweigh this small complaint. If I had used this router before I bought it, I still would have bought it. Great tool and a good price.

I was looking for a router and I am an intermediate woodworker. I have really had good luck with DeWalt tools and i decided on this compact router by dewalt. It is a good size and the quality is great. It has a bit of weight to it but it not too heavy and it is easy to maneuver with one hand. My favorite part about this router is the small size factor but it is not too small and is comfortable to use. I wasnt too impressed with the LEDs because they are only fairly bright and they dont really improve its performance or make it any easier to use. I really liked the power of this small router and the 1 1/4 horsepower feels like an understatement. With a 3/4 in dado bit, I wasa able to cut 1/4 inch dados in a single pass through plywood. The "D" base on the router is large enough and adds ALOT of stability during edge routing. The variable speed function works great and helps prevent wood burn during routing. I recently chamfered the edge of a shelf with a chamfer but from MLCS and the finished edge was clean, smooth, and there was no burning on the wood. I purchased this with the MLCS 15 Piece Router Bit Set with the 1/4 inch shanks and I am very happy with it as an addition to the router.One negative comment I have about this router is that it does not come with with a dewalt hard case.Overall, I am very happy with this router, and it has excellent performance in small package.

Excellent product. I am a contractor of 21 years plus. I've owned a lot of routers and killed a lot of routers. I have a milwaukee (with the hand grip strap) and an older bosch both on router table plates at the job. I use them in and out of the tables and find the oversize plates to be an asset on large timbers. For hinge gains and the like I would either grab my laminate trimmer or my small Elu style dewalt. If I wasn't using a template I would wear a headlamp and do it freehand. I have an original stanley with a light...but the bulb burns out when you need it the most. This router is a dream. For edge profiling I find myself grabbing it because it leaves the other hand free for the stock. For gains and mortises the clear plate and light mean no more headlamp. The only change I made was to rotate the "D" shaped base plate 90 degrees. It makes a lot more sense because when you are edging a board your hand is on the grip moving the router, and with the plate rotated it keeps more router on the wood. I got away from Dewalt when they moved to mexico, but this tool is well put together. You can't go wrong for smaller tasks.

I'm not really qualified to write this review, as this is my first router. However, I found the unit to be of excellent quality. I would definitely recommend getting the centering cone, as this router came with the base plate slightly misaligned. The depth controls work well and are spot on for calibration. The motor has a slow start so it is very easy to control. I used it to cut rabbets and dados in 3/4" ply to build a battery box for a small solar system. I had no problems with this unit other than operator error. I was initially cutting at too high a speed and too slowly. Once I did some reading, I was able to solve this error and had nothing but great results. Carve out small chips, don't make dust! The work detail LED lighting is an unexpected bonus. I discounted the LEDs on purchase, but in using the unit, the task light right down on the work is invaluable.

A couple things I didn't like. The base is a weird width, so it's less intuitive to determine the distance at which to clamp down guards that the base plate is to run against. Also, I found that the little vertical notches in sides the base plate would tend to catch on the guard and tend to twist or push out the router. This problem was easy to work around once I was aware of it.

I'm glad I purchased this router. It's a very affordable price for the tasks it can handle.
