Any LEDs? Is there any form of illumination, near the cutting bit, during operation? Seems NOT to be, and that's a big negative for me.

Would anyone dare to use this one-handedly, by virtue of the D-handle? I've never held such a tool, but I noticed a review on a "trim router" that said it was easy to operate single-handedly.

11-Amp 2-1/4 HP D-Handle Router is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I specially liked the hand position, excellent grip and control... I specially liked the hand position, excellent grip and control of the Makita D-Handle Router. It had the power to make fast dado cuts for 3/4-inch plywood shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router! This is an exceptional router. The soft start feature really does wonders for keeping the router from twisting in your hands like traditional designs. The D handle can be removed if you prefer and router can be used on a router table with it removed. I wasn't sure if I would like the D handle, but I ended up loving it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent router with plenty of power. The D-handle is great... Excellent router with plenty of power. The D-handle is great on the router sled for flattening slabs with a 2 inch wide bit in it. I've planed about 20 bd ft of walnut with it so far, and it doesnt bog down at all, taking 1/16 cuts. Fairly quiet compared to my 2 other routers. Pricey, but its solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mikita D Handle Router A nice router - very smooth with the soft start feature. It is a little top- heavier than the Porter Cable D Handle router, but very controllable with the D Handle base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita "D" Handle Router The "D" handle on this unit makes it perfect for use on my Leigh DR4 Pro Dovetail Jig. I also really like the "soft start" function, it keeps the unit from trying to jump around while your on a piece of material.
