Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Router, but not as pictured. This is a top notch router. However, be warned that the straight edge guide as shown in the picture is not included in the box. The manual does not identify it as an optional accessory like other accessories. Seems a bit misleading... December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita router I have a older one and love it. The only difference is ,the power switch is on the handle which I don't like , as the older one is not!!! That's just my preference. Great router though!!! I would buy it again. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this thing!!!! What can I say? This makita router is powerfull and well built. I believe that it may have been the most expensive they offer. A bit pricey, but as the old expression goes "you get what you pay for". Well worth every dollar! December 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router I have the router mounted in a table and use it to make raised panel doors. It is smooth and strong and leaves a great surface when used with sharp bits. Two passes on a raised panel leaves me a clean edge. The variable speed is great and the router is a lot quieter than my 1 1/2 hp router. December 10, 2013
