DEWALT® designed the 1-3/4 HP fixed base router with the maximum horsepower so users know it will be strong on important jobs. The 11 amp motor provides the power to rout smoothly through the toughest hardwoods. DEWALT® understands that you can't afford to sacrifice precision, so a micro-fine depth adjustment ring provides precise vertical and depth adjustments in 1/64-in increments. With quick release motor latches, bit and base changes are streamlined. A hand adjustable motor cam lock ensures that depth adjustments and base changes are quick and solid, so you can focus on the job without worrying about tool configuration.
