Love the soft start, and the on/off switchs location. Great router lots of power.
This is the fifth Porter Cable router that I have. Still own and use the others. Just needed a plunge router.

Plunge Router -- Great
I needed a plunge router for a few different projects. I had selected a different one along with a base and the router guides to go with it. The sales person brought me over to the Porter-Cable and although it was a little more expensive, I saved by not having to purchase other items to go with the router I had selected. I have been playing with the templates and the router and absolutely love it. Controls fantastic. Easy to set up and use.

What took so long?
Before buying this router I had 5 other routers 3 trim 2 plunge. I kept telling myself you don't need another router, but I bought it anyways and I'm very happy with the purchase. Very smooth, very controllable. I've seen a lot of guys on job sites with this router that should speak for itself.

I don't know what all the...
I don't know what all the negative reviews are about. Possibly someone got a "lemon". I have had this router for about a year and it has performed extremely well. The ease of switching from plunge to fixed base is quite easy. You can purchase other accessories for it but that is true of virtually any power tool you purchase. I had been using a Craftsman 1 1/2 HP router and still do in my router table. I haven't tried this one in my table yet. I would say if you have/had a problem with this router, call PC their customer service seems to be pretty good from my experience.

Great router. Quality plunge base and fixed base. I recommend getting the speed lift handle if using the fixed base in a router table. It's quieter than my 1 3/4 PC router.

The package met my needs. I have a fixed base 690 series router, which I want to leave on my table. I bought this package so I could plunge cut mortises in a cherry bed headboard I was making. It worked fine. It will also reduce time moving one router from the table to portable use.

Can a Router Speed controller used with this router?
Sandy D on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This has variable speed built in. Why would you add a speed controller?
Can I just buy the motor for the Porter Cable 893PK. Already have router with multi bases but want just mortor for my table. If yes, what is the price? If you do not handle any suggestions?
Big Bob on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Rockler does not offer the Porter Cable 892 as a motor only.
I would check with Porter Cable directly.
