Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 120 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by palm router Need to offer a plunge base for it. The competition has them. Otherwise it is the best palm router out there. December 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent router. Fully capable of handling any of the smaller routing jobs you have. I bought this for a particular task. The features are great! The square and round bases are very handy for different types of wood shapes that you may have. The micro adjust dial makes setting precise depth a breeze. The LED light is nice but could be brighter. A better solution might be to place one on opposite sides of each other. One bad note is that the wrench will not fit properly onto the collet nut through the opening so you must lower the base or remove it to change bits. A very slight base opening modification would make this much easier and quicker. All in all, I really like this router. It's variable speed function and 1.5 HP motor allows it to handle a variety of jobs that would sometimes require a larger router. It's fun to use and comes with a nice soft storage case. Don't forget the lifetime warranty! November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality tool I’ve used this tool for several months now as a woodworking hobbyist and it does everything my large router can do. It fits my hand and does a better job in many applications. I looked/held all the other “trim” routers and this one just felt good in my hand. I especially like the height adjustment and the ease of changing bits. Also, Ridgid’s “Life Time Warranty” is unbeatable November 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well ballanced smart design Light weight, easy to operate and smartly designed. Nice addition to the Rigid power tool line. December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome little trimmer I use this tool regularly at work for routing out commercial doors for hardware. It's tough , nicely balanced and extremely powerful for such a little package. Would strongly recommend this router to anyone. Professional or just a home handyman. You cannot loose with this tool. It' s AWESOME! Ron G November 24, 2014
