Good machine

"Fitted in my router table ; I lift it with a cheap car type pyramid jack; Soft start is good.
When undoing the collet nut to remove router bit;
loosen with spanner then turn outer nut further until it goes tight again the re-apply spanner and slacken further before removing bit, this has confused many owners.
Does not have a fine tune for depth

hitatchi routter
18-Dec-2011
By
, Newport
"i bought this routter, however it is an amazing tool, really smooth to use glides into the wood really nice, howevr i had to send it back twice as the blade got stuck in it twice as the nut you tighten to hold the blade in was not the spring clip type, so as a result i had to buy a differant routter, if a differant design on the nut was available i would definatly buy it again, such a shame as i really was impressed."

Hitachi...One of the best....
14-Nov-2011
By
, Yeovil.
"Pros
Made by the leaders of engineering machines 'back in the day'
This router is powerful, very easy to use and accurate.
The collet works brilliantly unlike many of the cheaper routers I have tried. The lock on switch makes it safe and easy to route and perfect for a table (howether there are no mounting holes so some intelligent design will be needed to add to your table)
It cuts cleanly and smoothly with little' throw-off' and no slippage of the bit.
Comes with 1/2" AND 1/4" collets and straight fence guide.
Con:
No fine adjustment can mean a fiddly menouver to add on a few mill to the depth of cut."

Worth the cash (with discount)

"Can't comment on reliability as only purchased yesterday as replacment for burnt out Ferm one I bought a couple of years back. Good solid build compared to the old Ferm router. Agree with comments about extraction (or lack of), however powerful, assured performance. 1/2 & 1/4 inch collets/adapters a bonus meaning you can use existing 1/4 bits, but upgrade to 1/2 bits when I neext need some."

Dust extract facility?
06-Nov-2010
By
, Devon
"Looked at this at store - didn't buy as although the spec says dust extract facility there was no dust extract fitting - unless dust extract facility means there are two screws to hold something in place. . . maybe missing from the one I looked at but recommend checking. Other wise was solid tool very rigid fence, guide bush reasonably centered also the on off switch latches which would be a useful feature in a router table."
