Hello...is this model better then the brushless one that was released not too long ago? Wondering if I should return mine for the Octane version. I just purchased all your burshless models and may return for the octane versions being I am still in the return timeframe. Thank you in advance.
Asked by: Nash
They are very similar, the octane system paired with the batteries does provide more power for larger profiles and dados.

18-Volt OCTANE Cordless Brushless Compact Fixed Base Router with 1/4 in. Bit, Round and Square Bases, and Collet Wrench is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have tool for any Woodworker, Carpenter 15 years ago people laughed at me. I was the first in my feild to invest in cordless tools and here we are today where there is no other way. Cordless has taken the tool market by storm. All the big brands have been making a name for themselves with bigger better and longer cordless running tools. Ridgid is no exception. They have perfected the cordless platform and released an entire generation of tools that have been the talk of the town. Their new cordless brushless octane router has the power to handle any job and the ability to collect the dust that it makes. It is well balanced with tool less height adjustment 10 position variable speed control. I love the included edge guide and the two clear plexiglass base options, one round and One square sure to fit any carpenters need. one of the things I love most about Ridgid as they develop newer and better tools they still manage to keep the price tag the same. Overall this is a much needed tool for any woodworker, carpenter and or DIYer.

I have been using Ridgid tools in my shop for some time now and I know the quality and innovation that they bring to the table in their product line. It is great to see improvements over time as they develop their tools. I own the previous model to this one as well as some other small routers and I am pleased with this new Octane platform. The addition of the dust port adapter and the Octane efficiency is a great step ahead of the Gen5X. I was worried that the dust port would pop out easily with a hose attached but, it locks in with the router base and stays put even with a larger 2-1/2" hose attached. If you have the previous model, the ergonomics are the exact same and you cant tell the difference in a blindfold test. This is a great little router for easy one handed work and even larger hardwood jobs. I can put a 1/4" round over on maple, oak, cherry, and walnut without issue.

This Ridgid Octane cordless router is my new favorite tool in my shop. - It gives me the added power to tackle any project that comes across my bench. The only thing better then more power in my shop is dust control! The added dust port gives me option to capture the dust quickly and effectively, allowing me to move on to the next step in my builds. I would definitely recommend this router for your shop, or if you spend time in the field - add it to your tool bag!

I was using a diablo .5” rabbeting bit and it cut through pine with ease. I didn’t get to try it with an octane battery yet but it still works great without one. Only flaw is the micro adjusting dial slips when using the router. I had to hold the dial so that it didn’t move when I was routing. Might call ridgid to see if that is a concern or if I wasn’t using it properly.

Same amazing CORDLESS trim router with more octane power and dust collection! I mean at the end of the day, you just can't beat having a cordless router. I find that I use the cordless router all the time. I have had a lot of experience with the previous model and still love having it. It's been good to me these last couple of years, and now I am confident that this new model will be super helpful in addition to my other router for multi uses in and around my shop. Already right out of the box I can "hear" that it sounds like it has more power than my previous model. The tone is a bitter higher for sure. The dust port is nice too and worked well attaching it to my shop vac with the small hose I use for my miter saw (it is not the same diameter hose that comes with the shop vac but a smaller one I picked up at a tool show one year). I was using it with a 3ah Octane battery and with the hose attached it felt nice and balanced while using the router and even allowed my hand to sort of rest on the chute. I have smaller to medium sized hands and think it fits well; I would be interested to know if someone with large hands felt the same. Either way, its great! If I had to change anything it would be designing it to where you didn't have to remove the base plate in order to install or remove the dust chute, but I plan on leaving mine on so it doesn't matter to me. Also, knowing that the base plate sits on top of where it connects, I guess I know it is not going to pop off with the weight of the hose pulling on it. All in all, I am very pleased with it so far. I know it's a fairly new model and I haven't had a lot of time to work with it yet, but if it serves me like the previous model has, then I am confident this one is going to rock too!

I don't love the on/off switch, but it does prevent accidental power on, so it might be a good design for safety.
