DeWalt Designed Features For the Routers Precision and Durability
DeWalt designed several features to support the DW618PKB router’s durability and precision technique. The router has an integral, through-the-column dust collection system, that collects an amazing 95% of the dust the router throws out, and which also provides superior bit visibility. A quick release motor safely latches, for fast and simple motor pack removal, as the operator makes bit and base changes. A detachable cordset is a great new feature as it offers cordset serviceability, because it removes the need for a “shorty” cord motor pack. The router is also built with precision machined brass bushings, as well as case-hardened steel guide rods that provide a smooth and accurate plunge stroke. A clear LEXAN sub-base is engineered to provide an enhanced and superior base durability, bit visibility, and it even accepts the standard template guide bushings. Finally, included in the design are rubber over-molded handles and a low center of gravity, which work in tandem to provide best-in-class performance that delivers comfort, balance, and control.
