Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Awesome Price Our new compact router from Home Depot makes our contracting jobs a breeze! This tool offers precision cuts in quick time and we love the performance that Makita power tools offers us. This will be a shop favorite for years to come! October 31, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Router feels great...plunge base does not stay engaged I am returning this to HD to buy just the router and fixed base combo. The plunge base will not stay engaged. You really have to bear down on the lever to get it to lock. If you try locking it with just your thumb it will not stay and the router will snap up. Only way I can see keeping the lever locked is to have it between your index and middle finger (which does not feel comfortable to me). I really like the router part though. It feels great in my hand the the grips also feel great. January 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by top notch Very powerful for its size great for the DIYer my old router was almost 10 years old and very heavy this is just as powerful as my old full size one but a quarter of the weight! October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of useful features This router has the whole package. It has plenty of power to cut through anything and the variable speed setting makes it very versatile for different materials. The soft start up feature is a bonus also. It can do everything a full size router can do in a compact size. Much easier to work with and store. I found depth adjustment very easy to change. Overall you can see and feel the quality in this router March 6, 2014
