This 3/4-horsepower trim router is ideal for use with laminate. View larger.
The 7310 owes its robust performance to its 5.6 amp, 3/4-horsepower motor that spins at 30,000 rpm for clean routing. Designed specifically for use with laminate, but often used on wood, solid surface, and a variety of jobsite materials, it makes quick, precise cuts. It's also durable enough to withstand the rigors of the jobsite.
Ergonomic for One-Hand Operation
This router boasts an ergonomic design that allows for comfortable, single-hand control. The micro-set adjustment knob makes for quick and accurate bit depth setting, while the spindle-lock feature allows for single wrench bit changes. It also has a fixed base for excellent bit visibility and improved accuracy.
Lightweight at just 3.75 pounds and measuring a compact 3.37 by 3.62 by 7.50 inches (L x W x H), the 7310 won't put excessive strain on wrists and hands, so it's ideal for all-day use.
Durably Designed for Jobsite Use and Long Life
In addition to its great feature set, the 7310 impresses with its long-term durability. A precision-cast aluminum base and 100 percent ball-bearing construction stand up to wear and tear, while the dust-sealed switch ensures long tool life.
The 7310 is backed by a three-year warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
If you do a lot of counter top, laminate work, their combo pack, with the different bases, is the top choice. Saves a lot of money over buying the individual bases.
I looked at some overseas, and the Ryobi model, and decided to spring for the Porter Cable. The metal base, and fine adjust feature, and metal housing, set it apart. This is a professional level piece of equipment. Should give you many years of trouble free performance.
When you are doing fine work, the lightness, and ease of visibility afforded by this router, is unmatched.
If I had to be critical of it, I would say that when changing a bit, I remove the base, which isn't that hard, for easy access. The base is designed to come on and off real easy, since it is one part of a multi base system.
All in all, definitely 5 stars. The more you use it, the more it will become your favorite one.
By far the better alternative is the tried-and-true Porter Cable 310 production router. This model has long been a favorite of professional cabinetmakers (the guys in my shop own two or three each), but it is somewhat unknown to the woodworking public at large. It is not made for mass market consumers (Home Depot/Lowes don't carry it), and PC has instead promoted the 7310 trimmer as its mainstay trim router. The 7310 trimmer, however, is but a shadow of the 310. Read some of the reviews on the 310 and you'll see what I mean. The 310 is truly a fine machine. At $100, the 7310 is not a great value. At $159, the 310 is worth every penny. Spend more now and you'll be very satisfied with the knowledge that you own the very best. More importantly, your work will show the wisdom of your choice.
Sadly, Porter Cable no longer sells the excellent offset, angle, and other optional bases for the 310. If you need these you can acquire them used or new-old-stock, but they are getting harder to find.Read more ›
The PC7310 is not a large spindle as these CNC machines, even a small one like mine can use much larger routers or even professional grade spindles (costing several thousands of dollars)
The PC7310 is much more than I expected for the cost. The body up to the electrical end cap is metal. The end cap is plastic, nothing wrong with that. I had thought all the dark body may be plastic.
The single screw mounting I thought might be a limitation, but the design of my machine uses that single screw and a plate upon which the router sets. Together the router is very firmly secured.
The light weight of the PC7310 router is a very good asset for the quick moves the CNC control can produce. The 3/4 HP is three times the power of the spindle I am presently using on a smaller machine.
I have not run the router enough to determine life of the bearings in this duty, but I know there are dozens if not hundreds of other craftspeople using the PC7310 router in this configuration. I have not seen or heard any issues about short life expectancy in this kind of duty.
Only two issues with the application and not a fault of the PC7310 router is the router noise level and single speed. Otherwise the PC7310 router design is well suited for this application and is an excellent choice for the price.

This router is just OK. If you're looking for a cheap entry level model than this is it. If not, splurge on something with grips/more viewing space. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mike
