Best choice

If you have a router lift that takes the US standard 4.2 inch motors there is little choice in the UK. This same motor is sold by another UK supplier albeit painted a different colour but they make you buy it with a NVR switch which jacks the price up and I did not need one. There is a version available from a well know Chinese supplier which although is a bit cheaper support would be an issue. So I suspect that this is all the same motor but what swung it for me is the three year warranty and the best price for the options I wanted. Apart from that it runs very smoothly and quiet, just hope it lasts a bit longer than the 2 XAct versions that have failed on

Extremely well made product

I ordered this unit to replace my dewalt router. It arrived very quickly and was packaged well.
The unit is extremely well made, very sturdy and put together well. Whilst I have not intsalled it into my table yet, I have started it up, and found it ridculously quiet and well balanced. The varfiable speed controll is smooth and easy to access.
Im now looking forward to fitting it and shaping some awesome mouldings.

Friendly, helpful advice prior to purchase

Friendly, helpful advice prior to purchase & prompt delivery to boot. Fitted to my lift easily and runs very smoothly, virtually vibration free. Looking forward to using this for many years to come.

Powerful, reliable

Powerful, reliable, speed variable & handles all sizes of bit, what more could you ask for?

Jim B.
These now come with ER collets

So these now come with ER collets, which appear to be a great improvement on the types of collet that have been fitted in the past. Not only that, but I am pleased to see further collet options available for metric shanks, of which I have plenty. Variable speed is essential for matching the rpm to the bit and material. Overall, an excellent product.
