Default Dust collection

I'm looking for a plunge router with excellent dust collection. I build loudspeakers and the MDF creates a lot of very fine dust.

I am leaning towards the DW621 since the port goes out the top. This would be very nice when I'm routing the holes for the loudspeaker drivers, since the hose could pivot as I cut the circle. But, I'm very interested in any experiences others have had regarding dust collection and recommendations anyone might have.

Festool. Pricey, but very good dust collection with their tools.

Hi Paul,

The DW621 is probably best known for it's excellent dust collection capabilities.
