Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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
Rated 5 out of 5 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
