I bought this as a stop gap as my 7 year old Trend router died.
2100W power struggled to cut worktops. My old Trend and previous Hitachi had no problem. Wish I can return it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AceNO246 A bit let down
I have recently purchased a new erbauer router but am I bit disappointed with the standard of the quality of the 30mm guide bush,as I use this weekly on fitting kitchens,the bush itself has some flat spots on the part that goes inside the jig thus not given it a smooth finish,the rest of the router and parts seem of good quality.

Must admit...I cringe at the sight of a sticker with "Made in China" and look for the 1st exit. This going to sound silly and cause a laugh, but just started woodworking with power tools and I am a confessed total ignorant in brands and tools so I never buy anything before checking everything 1st (at least 10 times) but on this case kind of rushed to finish a project. The name Erbauer sounded German ;) plus the reviews here gave me the final push, so went to The Exeter branch and got one for Â£99.99 ( they are today priced at Â£149.99- Oh Yes- Sigh) only when got back home and tried to get some help online on how to use it I realised that was a Chinese brand, (first thought- Oh *%&# ) no need. I must admit that China got it right here, they are finally starting to understand that price and quality must walk hand in hand. For a novice like me that was worried about using a router couldn't have been easier. In my humble opinion only a couple of minor details forced me to a not perfect 5 stars review but very close. A- it's the depth plunger not being a snug fit (nevertheless it works) and B- the poor quality of the cutters that came with it (but following the previous reviews I've bought a nice set made by trend), and those are the only reasons why my review isn't all 5 stars. China keep up the good work thumbs up from me on this one, just need to wait and see how long it will last, although it seems a very solid product protected by a very solid case.

i brought this as i had another kitchen to fit, i burnt out my dewalt and just wanted a cheap standby till my other fixed. well i am impressed with this router, it cut the worktop perfect. i was going to sell this after but im going to keep as i like it. it does everything and has all the bits a Â£300+ router will do so buy this and your be happy.
