Combining power, ease-of-use, ergonomic features and innovations designed for visibility, control and overall performance, the DEWALT DWP611PK compact router can handle a variety of applications–from small bevel cuts to large edge profiles and heavy flush trimming.

This package comes with both fixed and plunge bases, but it’s also available just with a fixed base.

Power and Performance

The DWP611 compact router features a 1-1/4 peak HP motor that delivers significantly more power than competitors’ models to help you be as productive as possible. The variable speed control helps you to better manage the tool and determine the speed that is best suited for the application at hand. A low, contoured grip that is close to the work surface also contributes to an excellent level of control–providing both precision and productivity on the job site. The soft starting motor features full time electronic feedback that maintains motor speed through the cut. An adjustment ring enables controlled bit depth changes to within 1/64-inch.

Comfort and Convenience

The fixed base’s dual LEDs and clear sub-base ensure maximum visibility in operation. The extended 1/4-inch router collet provides greater bit contact with the bit shaft than traditional routers, allowing you a firm grip on the bit and less vibration. The D-shaped sub-base provides stability and flatness when running edge profiles, and the spindle lock has been designed to greatly improve the ease of bit change by incorporating a large button that can be actuated with the same hand that stabilizes the router.

The plunge base features a clear and precise depth scale and marker, a release-to-lock lever to maintain the designated depth setting, and rubber handles for a non-slip grip. It delivers excellent user control via its smooth and light depth stroke, and the five-step adjustable turret stop enables stepped plunge cuts for accuracy and consistency.

The router also features two tabs that allow for a quick and simple base release, and a new base/adjustable clamp design so the motor location is maintained through the toughest applications.

Warranty

This DEWALT tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase).

Better than the Bosch Colt With the Amazon price drop & DeWalt’s current $30 rebate, I took the plunge (pun intended) on the DeWalt DWP611PK. I am *very* impressed!I like my routers a lot and use them often, but IMO the DeWalt is clearly superior (although durability is unknown). The after-rebate price seems very fair for all this functionality.The only things that I prefer on the Colt are the:1) Rubber grips…

Great Tool for Inlay Work I bought the DeWalt 611 for cutting inlay channels and decorative routing in small hardwood keepsake boxes. I have used it, for example, to rout a quatrefoil design in the lid of a small rosewood box. It produced superb results. It is powerful enough to do the job well and yet small and light enough to be very mobile and controllable. The two small LED lights embedded on the underside of the motor housing work very well, providing light right where it is most needed for this type of work. The…

First Impression I just got my new compact router and just played with it. So far GREAT!I had just returned a Trend to Woodcraft `cause it was a step above junk.Everything that was bad on the Trend is top notch on the Dewalt. It is so smooth (the Trend was really bad at higher speeds) I am doubt that it is really turning 27K RPM. The “feel” is almost as good in my hand as my Bosch Colt.I got it mostly to cut shelf pin holes. I got my jig, installed a 5/8 bushing and cut about…
