Rated 5 out of 5 by Hitachi router I got this excellent router from Screwfix, great product, value and service 14 Oct 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid, powerfull I bought this specifically to cut 40mm solid oak kitchen counters. The machine certainly has enough power to do the job, is very well built and heavy, which helps keep it in place. When powering up, there is a noticeable torque kick, just to remind you that this machine will break your wrist if you don't respect it. I would point to one design fault; the electronic speed control wheel is loose, which means that vibration from the cutting changes the speed mid-cut. Apart from this, the router is as good as machines at twice the price. 11 Aug 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good router For those having trouble with the collet and nut. Please be aware that the collet needs to be snapped into the nut, so that they are 'together' as one unit. If you don't do this, then the cutter and collet will indeed become stuck in the machine. They need to be connected for the nut to release the collet. Usually only one nut is supplied and the two, 1/4 and 1/2" collets. Each time you change collets, you need to click or snap the collet into the retaining nut. Don't do this and you will run into the stuck cutter problem. To remove the cutter, slacken the nut, but keep turning it. It will become tight again. Keep going again with the spanner. It's this second slackening which pulls the collet and the cutter from the machine shaft. This is not a fault with the machine, but a common mistake made by people new to these types of routers. 15 Jul 2015

looking for a new router, have a Hitachi cordless which seems to be good quality, and this router is half the price of Makita and DeWalt.

For worktop routing applications we would recommend a high wattage machine with a 1/2" collet.
Every time you purchase a Hitachi power tool, you can be assured not only that you have made an excellent choice, but the tool that you have chosen has been designed for your satisfaction and peace of mind.
