Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice i like how quiet it is and the weight is nice to handle. but i dont like how the 1/4 collet sticks in the router and the bite but other than that i will use this a lot.my father inlaw has an older plung version that i liked so i bought this one because of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific. Quick change! I love the way the motor changes out quickly from one mode to the other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product does what it is supposed to do and efficiently The only problems I had were trying to get the router bit out from the drive. It is a very tight fit. I had to clamp it in my vice and really force the bit out. I broke my 1/4 bit doing this the first time. Also, I find that the power button is in an awkward position, but overall a nice machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and it works well. I love everything about it except the plunge base does stick, as others have said. So I wish I had just bought the router, but not the plunge base. But it seems plenty powerful, is quiet, and I love the soft start and variable speed. I like the smell of this router too -- it smells like The Future. Overall I'm happy with this machine and will recommend it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This router is above average. This router works great except that the collet extractor doesn't always work, leaving the collet and bit stuck in the shaft of the router motor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BASES NOT UP TO PAR THE MOTOR OF THIS ROUTER IS THE BEST I EVER USED. I'VE BEEN USING ROUTERS FOR 38 YEARS. FIXED BASE THE HIGHT ADJ. STYLE SUCKS, IF YOU HAD A RACK GEAR & FINE ADJ. YOU WOULD HAVE THE BEST IN THE MARKET. TURNING THE MOTOR AROUND FOR HIGHT ADJ. KEEPS THE POWER CORD IN YOUR WAY ON MANY CUTS. I WAS LOOKING FOR MUCH BETTER FROM HITACHI. THE PLUNGE BASE IF THE PLUNGE SLIDES WAS SMOOTH AND NOT STICK DOWN YOU COULD USE THIS THING. VERRY POOR QUALITY CONTROL. AND THE PLUNGE LOCK LEVER SHOULD NOT NEED SO MUCH PRESHER, CAN NOT RELEACE AND PLUNGE WITH ANY ACCURATE CONTROL. HITACHI FIX THE BASES AND YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST ROUTER ON THE MARKET. TILL THEN NICE TRY BUT YOU REALLY DROPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE. MOUNTED IN A TABLE BOTH BASES ARE NEAR USELESS. BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control / users manual In reading the users manual it was noted that the outside shell could slide off in order to mount a bit. Well, in reality it can not be removed by loosening the hold down belt and twisting it. The bit can be installed however, but not as indicated within the manual. I wrote a note to tech support regarding this with "NO" response from your company. Hence I am not happy with the Hitachi performance at all.
