Bill, the 23 router has features that set it apart from most others besides the external power bus. You may not of noticed but the power cord swivels, very useful for routing circles or ovals. The full 3" plunge depth is the most in any router I am aware of. The always on LED work lights let you see your task better than other brands where the lights do not come on until you start the router. Add the RA1177AT dust collection kit to capture most of the dust and keep your lungs healthy. The VAC005 5 meter long hose plugs into any standard 2-1/4" vacuum port.(Most shop vacs)
