The PRL is the original router lift offered by Woodpecker. It has been on the market for 9 years and the regular price was $329 until recently.

Woodpecker has decided to discontinue this product and they are selling out their remaining inventory for $199.

Go to their website to learn more.

This is a great deal on a great lift.

I’ll admit it – despite having a Triton in a table, I have lift lust. Might be good to list the differences between the PRL v1 and v2. From what I understand, the v2 has quick elevation change (e.g. for bit changes) and a micro-adjust wheel that doesn’t require a crank to adjust height. Anything else?

I’m not aware of any other differences between the v1 and v2. I view both of those features as “nice to haves”.

The most important part is the basic mechanics; a smooth and certain lifting and lowering and a solid hold on the router to avoid any unwanted movement.

As an FYI, I am discarding my Quick Lift (now discontinued) and ordering a PRL.

I got my v2 for $199. by watching for the sale on seconds. Mine only had a small scratch on the top. I just absolutely love mine. I run mine with a PC 7815.

Have your say...
