I have that Hitachi router...I use it on my CNC. Works very well for that application, but for what you described...yeah, not gonna work. It has plenty of power though, at least for what I need it for.
Not sure about most but I have a couple that do and a couple that don't. I think my Bosch has a locking pin you press and use one collet wrench. My freud in my router table uses two wrenches but they are bent to go below the table and are a little easier to use. It would be nice to have a quick release system that would snap in and out like an automatic tool changer on a CNC machine. Coming to think of it, that probably does exist but could be expensive to have 3 or 4 collets pre-loaded with bits to snap in.
I have the Ridgid router of this size and it too has leds that point at the work surface, a one wrench bit change,variable speed, plunge and fixed bases and the attachments for a vacuum setup. I've use it for a couple guitars now, but I've used to for custom doors and window and assorted home carpentry for 3 years now (probably a good 100+ hours of it spinning) and its honestly better then I thought it would be. I bought it when I bought my Ridgid oscillating spindle sander, it was on sale and previously I'd been using a laminate trim router which really didn't have the power needed.
