Key Features

With its powerful 2050W motor, the Plunge Router packs a powerful punch for woodworking, furniture-making and kitchen fitting. Supplied with five different collets, you have the luxury of using a wide range of bits to get your desired result.

Featuring a handy soft-start function, you'll have power straight away whilst minimising the unpredictable, involuntary movements that other routers may deliver. The speed of this unit is variable via the effective control dial. This is invaluable and allows the tool to cover a range of tasks and applications where a specific amount of power is required for different bits or finishes.

Continuing the tailorable nature of the router, the plunge depth is also variable thanks to a precise fine adjustment dial, allowing a range of selectable depths between 0-50mm to provide total user control. Inserting and removing bits is a straightforward operation thanks to the safe spindle lock, which prevents play and twisting of the unit, as well as accidental engagement.

Furthermore, accidental engagement of the 6000-24,000rpm no load speed is unlikely thanks to the safety button, which needs to be depressed at the same time as the soft-start switch. This prevents damage to the workpiece or, worse still, injury to the user.

The kit includes a parallel guide bar, roller guide, circle and template guide, 5 x collets, 2 x guide bush plates (21 & 30mm) and a spanner.

Great router

By: Steve S


Fantastic Value for money. Bought this especially to cut kitchen worktop mitres for a home project. Worked perfectly used in conjunction with the Silverline jig and good quality router bits. Would highly recommend this router to achieve great results.

very good equipment

Sans aucun problème, le matériel est parfaitement conforme à mes attentes.

The plunge router works fine so far. Great that it has several adapters for different diameter of drills. One drawback is that it changes the frequency sometimes without rolling the speed roller.

By: Jan T


I have been using a low power (500W) German router for several years. Results not always good, specially with tough wood (oak). An experienced hobbyist advised me to switch to a more powerful model. So I bought this one. First run was oak wood 22 mm wide cut 8 mm deep. Beautiful result, machine had no problem at all, very precise and smooth cut. Boy, am I happy with this one!

This Router ist very powerfull, when using it for preparing Kitchenette worktop.



Hello, I''m happy to have bought this router. For now everything I want to do is good. I have only a remark ... the ruler ... (sorry I''m French) The "steps" don''t match enough with the "clockwork" ... I am working in Metal industry, so I can find some tips to resolve the problem. More "steps" will be better to set the level of the scalltop height. Thx. Bye

Ottimo prodotto con alta potenza del motore senza però avere forti vibrazioni, anche la rumorosità è accettabile. Le frese in dotazione sono di buona fattura. Utensile valido sia per hobby che per professione.

I have used it a few times now and have to say i am really pleased with with the results, you can''t go wrong with the price and quality of the router. you also get a case with 5 collets,5 router cutters, parallel guide bar, template guide and a roller circle guide.

nice tool, good price, what else ?

By: Paulo B


What is the voltage of the router?
  • Hi Paulo. Thanks for your comment. The voltage of this product is 220V / 240V.

By: Vito


La fresatrice lavora bene, la uso da poco e non in modo molto continuativo, rapport qualità prezzo buono per uso hobbistico. Un difetto è che nella valigetta erano presenti solo 2 mandrini invece di 5, fortunatamente il venditore ha rimborsato una parte.

By: Vito


La fresatrice è potente e funziona bene, è un po'' pesante ma gestibile, l''asta per la regolazione dell''altezza è in plastica. Fresatrice di buona fattura per un uso hobbistico. Unica pecca è che la valigetta conteneva solo due mandrino e non 5,ma per rimediare il venditore mi ha scontato il prodotto del 20%.

Sturdy tool and great customer service

By: Gordon D


I did a lot of research before buying this router and have now used it for several projects. It comes with a selection of bits and a circle cutting attachment which I have used three times so far and cut a perfect circle every time. It comes with features which are normally only found on more expensive routers such as, variable speed and soft start. Although a little heavy, it is very well built with a smooth action and very little vibration. I would not hesitate in recommending this router.

By: Peter


Unfortunately the quality is not as expected. The engine is great but the router is useless. There is an amount of 3-4mm play on the router rods and the motor. This makes it impossible to make a straight grove. I had 2 brand new router and they all had the same issue. I think this is a production error.

By: V P


I’ve had this for about a month now, it’s a heavy duty router which, with the correct router bit, slices through oak very nicely. Component parts seem decent, no breakages or complains just yet

By: Andrea R


Il prodotto è valido, con il suo potente motore di 2050 W, riesce a lavorare anche il legno più duro senza problemi. Il rapporto qualità prezzo è veramente eccellente.

Fait le Job, un très bon rapport qualité prix.

Metto 2 stelle solo per il foro rettangolare e della piastra base. Il rettangolo risulta stretto e non è possibile usare frese con diametro di 45 mm o più. Per una fresatrice da 3 hp circa è un limite grave. Nel mio caso l''ho installata in un banco fresa e ho dovuto interporre una piastra da 50 mm di spessore con foro "circolare" da 80 mm. Ho dovuto comprare una prolunga. Così posso usare frese fino a 75 mm di diametro senza alcuna modifica alla fresatrice. Forse per questo modello da 2000 Watt la Silverline potrebbe prendere in considerazione la possibilità di cambiare la piastra di base con una con foro circolare da 80 mm. Diventerebbe una signora fresa antagonista ai più blasonati (?) e certamente più costosi brand. Per il resto, anche se finora l''ho usata pochissimo, la fresatrice fa egregiamente il suo lavoro. Soft start ottimo, funzionamento fluido e aspirazione trucioli efficiente. Forse un pochino troppo rumosa.

Excellent pour le travail que je fais

By: Faleyc


Cette défonceuse est très maniable, malgré son poids. La puissance est bien là et le travail du bois est agréable, les fraises mangent le bois sans hésitation. Les coulisses n''accrochent pas. J''aurais aimé un système pour la régler sous table pour qu''elle soit parfaite.

By: Le C


Very well, does a good job for a best price. Sorry for my english.
