In an entry-level router, you hope for a good mix of power, features and durability. The DEWALT DW616 provides all that with an 11.0 Amp, 1-3/4 HP motor, micro-fine depth adjustment ring (which allows for 1/64 increment adjustments), and a clear Lexan sub-base that lets you actually see the bit! Other smart features include a sub-base concentricity gauge, long eight-slot collets for bit retention, and a steel motor cam lock and quick-release motor latches. Those latches let you change bases quickly and tool-free. Safety and security features include a dust-sealed switch and a detachable cordset. Unit has a vacuum adapter size of 1-1/4.
From the photo, you'll note those large rubber handles, which help to resist wood dust. They, along with the router's body also help quite a bit with the unit's overall balance. Made in Mexico.
Kit includes: DW616 motor pack, DW6184 fixed base, (1) 1/4 collet, (1) 1/2 collet, sub-base concentricity gauge, (2) wrenches.
