Works great
I was needing to cut angle on some trim pieces but did not want the entire edge at a 45°. The pieces were too small for me to completely do it with a table saw. So I decided to get this router. Worked incredibly well. Gave me the edge I was looking for to match the trim in the rest of the house. Going to use this for dado cuts soon as well.

    This is a great tool. I use it for smaller jobs like cutting boards, etc. I had originally bought into the "lifetime" service brand at HD but after reading the details on "registering" the product and the service, I opted to return it. This unit has more power and is much quieter than the other brand. Fits great in the hand and is a joy to use. This router is a great addition to anyone's workshop!

      Great features variable speed, accessible brushes and 6.5 amps. The 2 wrench design is a very nice feature in addition to the spindle lock. I unpacked read the instructions and tested the variable speed dial and the motor and it runs very smooth and quiet with no router bit installed. The router body and grip is very comfortable and not too large to hold safely. The included straight guide is a great bonus and fits securely. I will order the dust guard and other accessories over time. I really like the Makita base diameter and optional accessories that can be used with it. The warranty is 1 year. I chose to add the 2 year home depot protection plan for another $12 and have the router brand and design I chose for my individual needs. After hours of reading recommended router bit speed charts and reading product reviews I wanted the best compact routing experience. I chose to return a single speed 7 amp 27000 rpm compact router with soft start and electronic feedback sealed in its box.

        Exquisite Tool
        Bought the other comparable router at the same price point first because it came with the carry bag and had the tempting service agreement. Should have known I was paying for those things because the actual tool quality was pretty run-of-the-mill. I returned it and bought this router. Don't be fooled by the similar reviews when doing your comparisons. This Makita is a fine, meticulously crafted tool with plastic and metal in all the right places. It routes beautifully, is easy to assemble/disassemble for bit and accessory swaps and the bits don't get heat-stuck (as was the case with the other router). Many add-ons are available for this as well for different applications. If a carry bag is a must i'd recommend searching the web and spending the extra $15 or so for a small Makita bag or just use a generic tote. It's worth it.

        Too expensive at local store
        I purcased 4 in the pasr 3 years and they are working great. This last purchase I'm experiencing some overheating problems. I have omly used for 30 minutes and it gets so hot i can't hold it unless i wear a leather glove. I never experience that problem with the other 4 . Also the price 30.00 more than 1 month ago. I will not purchase any more at that price. I can get them under 100.00 on line.

        Great Little Router
        I bought one of these last fall to trim some laminate but just finally had a chance to try it out last weekend. I love this little router. I have a router table with a larger router but wanted something smaller for freehand/template work. So far I've used it to create some 1/2" dados, 3/4" rabbits and to do some flush trimming (laminate and plywood). More than enough power for those tasks. The Good: - Bit change is quick and easy with the included wrench - Fine adjustment works well - Variable speed is very useful - Small form factor makes it easy to handle (I've always been nervous using my large router outside a table) The 'Not as Good': - Motor did get a little hot while cutting 30 dados but not so hot that it was uncomfortable to hold I didn't try the edge guide as I tend to use a clamped straight edge.
