1-1/4 HP Compact Router Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great High Quality Router for small routing jobs...Nice size...Easy to use..Well Made.. Nice small hand held router...My first router and it does a good job with things like door hinges etc...Smooth running and nicely made...the depth adjustment could not be easier and comes with nice accessories...Just a note I am as mentioned just starting out with routing however worth pointing out you will want to buy some good router bits to go with your purchase. Comes with one small router bit and I tried using it to route out a long mortise in a piece of red oak stock a hardwood and the bit got hotter than heck...started smoking and could no longer cut before I made the length I was cutting...Luckily I had some Vermont American mortising bits and once I loaded one of those it went through the wood like butter. I will no doubt graduate to a larger router for large projects but for smaller simple jobs it cant be beat and a great price.

I really like the variable speed option for soft starts, it's got more than enough power, feels "just right" while you're working and depth changes can be made very easily. I've only used the plunge collar twice, but it is more than adequate for what I had expected. Overall, the best trim router I've owned and I look forward to having it for many years, knowing Makita's reputation for durability

I bought this compact router to do some small intricate circles and on a project I didn't want to use my big router on l found it has plenty of power to go right through maple . I found to change the bases from the standard to the plunge easy and clean. I would say this compact router did all I asked it to do and I'm glad I bought it .

It is everything I was looking for. The router is powerful and fits in my hands well. It seems very well built. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because some of the more expensive bits I have don't fit this router. I may have the added expense of buying another bit set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and great to learn with. This is my first router. First owned and first used. I am getting the results expected and then some. Easy to figure out but I'm sure there are some tricks and settings I'm missing that would make things better. End of the day I am satisfied with the purchase and the results.
