18v Dewalt DCW604 router £258 at FFX ebay store

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Recently bought this at a higher initial price but with the 14% of at FFX which worked out at a similar overall price. Great piece of kit and now with 5% off a lower price. There are other sellers on ebay with the product at a few £s cheaper that you can use the discount code on but dont appear to have free delivery hence why I've linked FFX instead which offers free mainland delivery I stand corrected if that's not the case with the others (I live in NI so it can be hard to tell on an ebay listing). It does come with the guides and extra base plates although not shown in the picture. Bare unit only, no batteries or charger.

Wasn't aware Dewalt did these, I ended up buying a Makita as Dewalt didn't offer them at the time.

I had a 240v dewalt, and was waiting so I could use the dewalt batteries. Not sure you can really go wrong with any of the manufacturers, but not having the cable is so good on a 1/4in router like this!

They have only been out just before Christmas. I thought the reason they were taking so long to bring one out especially with their 54v systems, is that they were going to do a ½ version.. but no lol still bit pricey for me but they are slowly coming down

Yeah I usually buy dewalt so now have a Makita and batteries as I needed a palm router. Not the end of the world but I have about 8 dewalt batteries and only two makita.
Still think it's ludicrously expensive. You can buy this from the US without the plunge kit for just over £100. Okay you have import charges but it gives me a comparison to understand how much I'm being ripped off here in the UK.

ebay.com/itm…yOH

And before anyone jumps in 20v and 18v are the same. Yanks call their 18v stuff 20v. it sounds bigger.

Another option is to get one from eBay store as the American version dcw600 is the same body just no plunge base as shipped and customs via eBay global shipping is a touch under £150. Mine came a few weeks back and cracking tool .

I agree I had put a £250 price limit on it as my 240v was plunge base only so having the handheld bit was a bonus so just worth the buy really or so I tell myself!

Personally for me the plunge kit is a necessity for doing freehand routing jobs and I'd rather not have the stress of dealing with a non UK company if things didnt go to plan. Also doesn't come with a box extra base plates or the guide for the plunge etc but to each their own. But I think your right we do get a bit shafted on prices compared to America! Regarding the taxes, I remember buying exhausts from America for my motorbike, Parcelfarce very gladly paid the taxes on my behalf and then charged me for the service, it was another £28 on top of the VAT, and the law now states they are within their rights to with hold the items until you pay them. TNT, FedEx or DHL dont seem to do this you normally just get the vat bill in the post, so might be worth checking the courier too or paying via ebay service if it still exists!

Non UK company?

Just contact DeWalt.

I've only ever had 1 thing go wrong with all my 18v dewalt tools that I have which was a charger that kept blowing a fuse. It was bought in a kit with an SDS drill from Screwfix. Dewalt requested a lot of information on what batteries it was used to charge and whether the batteries were to fault. They wanted the whole kit back. Screwfix confirmed with me in store the rest was fine and negotiated with dewalt and they sent the charger. I cant imagine the conversation if something goes wrong with a UK resident using their 20v marked range not sold in the UK with 18v batteries (regardless if they are the same) and providing them with an ebay receipt for an American company. Granted its unlikely but if you need the full kit and you add everything else up like the plunge attachment, case, guides bases plates etc is the extra few quid worth the hassle. Just my two cents
£271 for me???

Glad it still works! They are a good job been using it the past few days and the lack of cord is great. Been working with the electric off recently and not having to reconnect things before using the tools is great
