          Compact with convenient features
          This is my first router. I’ve been wanting one since seeing them being used in numerous YouTube videos and thinking how many times having one could have made my projects easier. I purchased a laminate bathroom counter to replace my outdated marble one so I’ll need a router for smoothing the sink cut out hole. Glad to have this router by Rigid and it’s also my first Rigid tool. As soon as I took it out of the box I was pleasantly surprised at the compact size! Not nearly as large and heavy as I thought it would be. Has rubber around the handle for easy gripping and precise control. Also has a guard for bit changes. I also like the ability to adjust to different depths. Easy, push button release. Rocker on/off switch. Soft start. Convenient depth scale on motor housing. The quality is superb and I’ve seen routers that cost so much more. Since owning my first cordless tool, having no cord is super important to me now, although this one does not come with a battery. Looking forward to getting one though at Home Depot because as soon as we can find just the right new faucet for our counter project we’ll be ready to go. Comes with instruction book, vacuum adapter, edge guide, guide bars, thumb screws, and wrench. Lifetime warranty including free parts and service. Can’t beat that for a tool!

          Rigid tools has the best warranty in the tool market
          I'm a big fan of Ridgid tools because of their lifetime warranty as long as you register their tools within a reasonable time span and this router is no exception those small it is very powerful and will balanced it o is perfect for those jobs where a regular router isn't required since it's battery operated it can be taken anywhere off job site or on to perform small task of routing. Anyone who does woodworking would appreciate this versatile tool. This comes with a dust collector shield at mounts on with applied supplied thumb screws also comes with rods and a edge device for when you want to route straight and accurate lines. This particular tool does not come with a battery which can be purchased separately at Home Depot. I Highly recommended and I believe will not disappoint.

          Perfect compact, cordless router
          I wanted to try a small, cordless router for trimming the veneer on a project I am beginning. The size and ease of use of this router and no cord to get in the way, made it a good fit. My old corded router is much bigger and has no work light. The ability to adjust the depth to the smallest amount is also a great plus. Looking forward to getting my battery and getting started.

          Compact and Durable
          This is an awesome router especially if you’re looking for something that will last and that’s not excessively large. Well built and will not fail you, this thing has a lot of power for its size. It comes apart very easily to clean and is an all around exceptional tool.

            Compact Router. RIDGID
            Compact Router is an amazing tool!! It roughens the wood with a very professional finish. Since we have this tool in the projects, all the work becomes easier and more professional. I recommend it 100 percent. RIDGID is the best brand. After I am using this brand with its high power drills and batteries with long durability and resistance, everything becomes easier. Thank you RIDGID💪👍

              The great quality expected from Ridgid as usual!
              I absolutely love Ridgid tools. Their compact line really doesn't leave much to be desired. This little router has tons of power! It fits well in the hand, and it will impress you! A+

                So far not happy with this router, I’ve have used a yellow router for years to flush trim projects. The first time using this router the bit wobbles at higher rpm’s. This is the only router that has this issue, with the same bit in other routers I have no issues. This router can free with a package deal but I will be taking it back and getting a different tool.

                Great Cordless tool! It has a cutting guide, 1/64" resolution depth adjustment capability, LED work light, low noise - brushless motor. Motor is powerful - doesn't get bogged down. And variable speed control. Only 4 stars because it did not come with a battery or charger, and the battery it needed was not the same as my RIGID drill (my bad for not noticing!).
