Cool Porter Cable 8529

Does anyone use the PC-8529? I found one at a good price and wonder if they are good. Probably dedicate it to a table "Oak Park". I'd appreciate any comments.

The 8529 is 2 HP, Plunge router street price is about $200. It's a good machine.
If the price is very much below the street price it's a good buy. I have the PC 7539
in the Oak Park table. It is a powerful unit, I use for raised panels etc.

good luck with it, Woodnut65
