Good Value shipping questionable
I received my CPO order 2/28/2018 and was really disappointed to the way it was packed for shipping. I was going to post a very negative feedback but on second thought I decided to let you see the condition I received my order. I deal with a lot of On-line vendors and these packages by far were in the worst condition I have ever received. I would expect a $300.00 dollar order would warrant better packaging then CPO provided.

Router was shipped with no protective packing except for a single packing pad that provide no protection to the router. When I picked up the box you could feel the router rolling around in the box. Surprisingly the router table appears to be undamaged. I have attached pictures of the items as received.

Operational condition these items is not yet known but I will be sending them back if there are any issues.

Great product!
This is the second router I purchased from CPO to use on a horizontal router table. The reason I chose this model and Bosch brand is that my vertical router table has the same brand and model attached an has been in use for over 2 years now with no problems whats-so ever. Easy to set up and use. Use both routers daily making picture frame stock.

CPO is great company to do business with. Easy ordering, friendly customer service if needed, and quick shipment of product at great prices.

Remanufactured router is fine. Can't tell the difference, except no fancy box.
Like new. Everything works perfectly, so far. Only difference between this and brand-new: no fancy box

Bosch reconditioned router. Good value.
The item was as described. Packaging could be better. The item was loose in a box. I have not used this much yet. I am currently building a router table to mount it in. The soft start works nicely and it appears to be a powerful machine. Worth purchasing reconditioned versus buying new. Saved a good bit of cash. Once the table is built I have projects to do that will require rail and stile cutters. This will tell me just how good the router is.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
