Porter Cable Routers


890 Series Porter Cable Routers

The new 890 series Porter Cable Routers are the most versatile router that Porter-Cable has put out yet. Working just as well in a router table as it does being used by hand the 890 series can perform any of the routing jobs that you need it to.

All of the 890 series Porter-Cable Router are equipped with a 2-1/4 HP, 12 amp soft start motor. Soft start motors reduce the spike of current when the motor is turned on. THis will prolong the life of the motor.

The 890 series operates at ranges from 10000 RPM to 24000 RPM. This means that it will be able to handle a wide range of operating conditions. The larger the bit you are using the more wood it removes and the slower the router bit should turn.

Porter-Cable continues to design and build quality power tools. They have succeded in over-delivering when it comes to quality. Using components that will stand up to the wears and tears of daily shop use. From the introduction of the soft start motor into their new 890 series to the auto release collet system to eliminate stuck bits, Porter-Cable will continue to be a tool of choice for my work shop.
