Rated 3 out of 5 by from Speed controller unreliable Basically a good router but a couple of minuses to know about: 1) The speed controller on this model often malfunctions and causes cut-outs. Mine did after only an hour of use. On searching the net, I found a whole load of other people complaining about this problem with this model all the way back to 2014 and beyond. Hitachi have done NOTHING about it. (I actually managed to fix mine myself because it turned out to be a mechanical problem with the seating of the knob over the electronic component underneath it. I had to take the router apart to do it though and I should NOT have to do this). 2) It's the most clumsy, ham-fisted, non-ergonomic machine I have ever used. Other than that, it does its job well.
