I LOVE my Rigid 2401. It has performed flawlessly on everything I have done with it from light duty stuff to medium duty stuff. Like mortising for hinges, trimming and edging wood, quick routing jobs where it is less hassle to get up and running than one of my larger routers. When I bought mine, DeWalt did not have the dual base package. BUT, even now, I have yet to need a plunge base. I guess that if I used this router for more than what I use it for, it may come in handy.
The dual baseplates are nice but I have not used the square one yet. Bit changes are quick and easy but for me, all of my bits were 1/2” shanks until I bought this router. Now I have a small collection of 1/4” shank bits for this router.
The soft case holds everything you need and it is handy and the router has a nice long cord too.
I don’t think you will be disappointed with the Rigid if you buy it. Rigid just recently updated the router with a different textured grip that may be better. I am fine with the current grip. And the lifetime warranty is not a bad thing either if you happen to need it.
