The RIDGID 2 HP Fixed Base Router is durably built from precision-milled magnesium and features an 11 Amp motor that delivers enough power for dense materials. Easy-access, soft, hex-grip handles give you comfort and minimize vibration.
I purchased this router several months ago and have been happy with my purchase.
I have used the router extensively and it has not let me down. I primarily use it in my router table, and I use my RIDGID laminate trimmer for other uses. The router bit height can be adjusted from the bottom with an included tool, so I don't need to get under the table to change the bit height.
There have been times I've wanted a plunge base and haven't been able to find one available from RIDGID. It would be great to see a plunge base released. I know there were plunge bases available in the past.
