The versatile Bosch 1617EVS Variable-Speed Router. This router kit includes a powerful motor with advanced speed-control technology, a fixed base for upright use or use in a router table, and plenty of high-performance features to help you get a variety of jobs done quickly and accurately.

Powerful, Variable-Speed Motor with Soft Start

Take care of even the toughest routing jobs with the powerful 2.25-horsepower, 12-amp motor and its versatile speed range of 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The variable-speed dial allows you to set the optimal speed for the task. And with built-in Constant Response Circuitry, your router will maintain a constant speed throughout the cut, so you get clean, accurate results.

With its integrated soft-start feature, the motor reduces torque upon startup for a smooth transition and easy handling. The 1617EVS's design adapts to let you work with the switch and cord on the right or the left, giving you improved consistency and precision, as well as the confidence knowing that the motor won't rotate during depth adjustment.
