I bought this to match my CRT Mk 3 table. So far so good but to be honest I have not used it for any big projects as yet. Solid machine and has done what I have asked so far but time will tell. I have the T31 dust extractor and had to make a tee joint so that I can use it for the floor and the table at the same time. All in all, a very good match and the sale from Powertool world was smooth as with the delivery (one hour slot) will be using them again.

Bought this after a lot of research. I had a relatively new, cheap router table/spindle moulder that vibrated so badly that it was impossible to keep the cutter in the collet. Also bought the Trend router table and the two together are just so smooth. So incidentally is the service from Powertool World. In a 'Senior Moment' I ordered the T10 instead of the T11. The changeover was handled with 'understanding' shall we say. Thank you Guys.

Great Product using in a Mk3 Table and making some shaker wardrobes. The through table adjustment is possible with the T11 which makes it all so much easier. Variable speed lets you set up just right for the job and with soft start and dust extraction it is a joy to use. Wish I had made the purchase a while back!

I bought this specifically to go in a router table I was building, its cracking. The lift that is built into the base is not as smooth as the sort you might get as a separate unit, but you dont have to pay £150 extra for it! I bought a deep 12mm socket to operate it as the handle that's included dosn't really do the trick.
Other than that, its powerfull, smooth, has a good lock in the collet, and a good depth of plunge. The extraction fitting is very efficient and is yet to clog. For the money, you would be hard pressed to do better

Although I have not had a chance to use this tool in earnest yet it does appear to be the one. the service from Powertool World has been second to none and I shall have no hesitation in doing business with them in the future.

It's early days, but so far this router has chomped through everything I've thrown at it. You can tell that it's been designed to work really well when installed in a table., especially the height adjuster that's easy to get at from above and below.

Wonderful router with all the power yo will need. Great to have power switch that stays on for use in Router table. Fine adjustment control makes for easy use in or out of router table.
The price was the best I could find.

As expected of Trend.. excellent build quality - plenty of power - simple to use. Ideal for use inverted under a router table with rise and fall controlled by fine adjustment mechanism and "click on and stay on" power switch. Chip/dust extraction assembly works well and is unobtrusive. A collet extension is recommended for ease of bit changing above the table, otherwise I cannot find anything other than good things to say about this piece of kit.

A lot of thought went into the design and build of this router, probably by someone who used one.
Setting up is easy. The soft start is a bonus and it feels very stable in use. Variable speed addresses different materials and demands.
The large hole through the sole plate will allow the use of larger than usual diameter cutters and the long, soft, cable does not interfere with the work.
Comes with a good sized case
with room for loose cutters etc.
The only critisism is the on/off switch, I prefer the type that has to be held down while in use, this one has to be deliberately moved to switch off.
I was very impressed and would highly recommend.
