  • R2900 Router likes/dislikes??

    I am looking at purchasing a r2900 router. I wanted some input from users on how they like or dislike the unit. I am using for hobby work. Possibly mount on a table in the future. Any comments?

    Thanks

    So I have a choice now between a porter cable 890 fixed base or the r2900 combo kit. The r2900 is brand new and the porter cable is slightly used. What would you all go with? I know porter cable has a good reputation but is the combo a good deal? Is the r2900 a soild router?

      I can't speak about the porter cable personally but I have heard that it is a quality built tool. I have the Ridgid router and it works well for me. The LED lights are handy in low light conditions but not so much in the daylight. Also, the soft start feature is nice. It doesn't jerk or get out of control when you start it up. The flat top on the Ridgid makes bit changing easier too.

        I love my Ridgid router... Can't go wrong with the PC either though.
