If I was asked which one(s) are my fav's. The Makita's win hands down.

I'm also enclosing a pic. of the new sander, (which arrived just yesterday), I wanted when I ended up purchasing the TS.
Don't you know instead of buying a new router for each bit you use, you can swap the bits out?

BTW Nice sander!

I've only just come across this thread Nick and I see not one, but TWO 3612C's, only today I visited some tool stores and lovingly touched the 3612C's but one store wanted $A580.00 and another one $A620.00. I also for the first time had a good look at the Ryobi, looks good at the price. I wasn't impressed with the Festool at $A999.00, the pillars are so thin compared to the Makita and Ryobi. I look forward to some extremely good router projects from you Nick.
