Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the features and soft start The bushings were a pleasant surprise. I would prefer the on/off switch to be closer to the handles so it could me operated with a thumb while holding handles. I have only used it once so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No collet lock other than a second wrench. I wish the spindle did not require a second wrench to open the collet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real quality tool. This router replaces one I purchased 30 years ago. What a difference the built in technology makes. The variable speed is nice & speed is maintained throughout the cut. The soft start is a nice touch. Easy to set up the depth & width of cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second one purchased Have had one of the same model for a number of years . Has served me well. Was time to replace my router table unit ( not this brand) Decided since the M12VC had served me so well I would just get another one. Made a mount to hold the new M12VC and the combination of the new mount system and M12VC router work great. My new mount is from plans purchased thru E bay . Far superior to having router hanging from a plate. With one wrench and 2 minutes or less this router can be returned to hand held unit. No modification to router needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Have not been able to use it yet, but the quality seems fine and the specs are what led me to purchase, like the fact it comes with both collets and the soft start up.
