Product Details For Bosch 1617EVS

Product Description

Often copied but never equalled, the Bosch 1617EVS revolutionized the mid-size fixed-base router category. Designed for a broad range of routing applications, the versatile Bosch 1617EVS was the first router in its category to have a 2.25 (max) horsepower rating, linear depth adjustment and numerous other Bosch routing innovations. The powerful 2.25 HP, 12 Amp motor handles tough routing jobs, and its versatile speed dial allows the speed to be optimized for the task at hand from 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The soft-start feature reduces start-up torque for smooth and easy handling. The Bosch Constant Response circuitry helps maintain a constant speed for clean, accurate and consistent results.
