Porter-Cable’s new router system is playing catch-up with its multi-base kit competitors, but now it has not only caught up, it has surpassed them in many ways.

This system sports a variable-speed, soft-start, 12-amp motor with electronic feedback to maintain constant speed in use. The motor is quiet with low vibration, yet produces lots of torque. A two-position power switch (at the top and base of the motor) is designed to make hand-held or router-table use equally convenient.
