Rob , Leeds Kitchen fitter joiner

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good powerfull motor. Feels well made.

Easy clip in guide bush.
Nice metal guide rail if you use it.
Bad points:
Bad box design... ( have to take the cutting blade out every time to fit in).
The clear plastic dust guard does not clip on with the vac attachment piece so the vac is sucking open air.
Only makita guide bush fit so dont buy trend like i did expecting it to fit.

Came with no 110 plug on so had to buy and fit myself.

Very very bad design box, i now keep mine in a big makita padded bag.

Pay the extra money and buy the big Festool.. Wish i had done that.

Gerard , Ireland

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is a serious router that needs work not for garden shed. It's a heavy machine so it's not for small jobs
Bad points:
No plug on 110v not a big deal but still it's like buying shoes that come with no laces
