I was attempting to use larger router bits with my fixed speed router. After a little research, I found that you need a variable speed router for larger bits like raised panel bits. I did more research and picked the Bosch 1617EVS mainly because I own other Bosch tools and appreciate the quality of them. Once again, I wasn't disappointed. After I mounted it in my router table and began using it at low speed, I was thrilled to find it didn't bog down and worked smoothly. My panels came out great! I love this router.

Good, controllable workhorse

By 

from Fredericksburg, VA, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

I've had one of these for several years. It is strong and accurate in both the fixed base and the router table. The slow start and variable speed features are excellent. I have only two complaints: 1. The motor body sometime soon binds in the base making it hard to adjust the height, and 2. This router is screechingly loud. Hearing protection is essential!

Great Router

By 

from Wenatchee, WA, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

I've been using a 20 year old B&D router that a friend was throwing out for years. What a difference this one makes ... the soft start really works well, the old one wanted to jerk out of your hand every you flipped the switch. I'm using it now for cutting dados for shelving, the variable speed comes in handy. It's easy to adjust, unlike my old one and does what it supposed to do very well. I haven't used it on hardwood but it seems plenty powerful. Hopefully this is the last router I own.

Great Router

By 

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

This is my first router. I've never used one before so after doing some research I picked this router for its good reviews, variable speed, and softstart. I use this both by hand and mounted to a router table. The router has plenty of power.
