Guest from PA Posted March 5, 2009
So far I am pleased with the router, it is my second router. What a difference from a 1 1/2 hp router with a 1/4 collet. The soft start feature is nice and the router works very well. The above table adjustment is a nice feature also.

octavio c from Brooklyn, NY Posted November 7, 2008
I have been a DIY'er for over 20 years now, so I'm no novice to power tools. I have worked many different routers, and I must say that the PC 895 is an excellent tool. I find it hard to put it down, since the first day I turned it on, till present. I enjoy every minute that it's in my hands. Thank you PC for making such a great router. I'm currently looking forward to purchasing a second one to leave in my table and have one ready to use for when I need it. I find that the hands-on micro adjustment is a wonderful addtion makes it more user friendly and just an over all great tool.

Jim A from Kent, OH Posted July 25, 2008
I bought the 895 combo primarily for the table top adjustment capability. The micro adjustment is great. I did have to retro-fit (drill and counter-sink) my router table to accomodate the adjustment device which was a simple task. Save countless time when routing raised panel rails and stiles and panels. The soft start and variable speed features are great. All in all, a super package.
