Default Pc 893pk

Been looking for a plunge router for some time now, and have decided that there are too many choices!
I came accross this combo this morning, and am looking for some feedback.
What is the difference between the 893PK and the 895PK? Thanks for any input.

That's a great price as I just got a Makita recon for similar cost. I also bought a new fixed base 892 I believe was the model for 100.

Thanks for the replies. It seems like most questions about which router to buy end up with a link to this Craftsman combo. It's that good, and no major issues? Thanks

Hi Frank

The only issue I know about and it's a very small one is with a 10 cents spring but it's not a must need to replace item,when you unlock the motor from the base it may drop a little bit (1/16") and with a new spring it will not ,like I said it's not a big deal for most, but that said I would give it 4.8 stars out of 5 stars..

I will say I have 8 of them and only one has that error ...they must have got some weak springs at one time..the spring is only 1/4" x 1/2"...
