Fantastic router kit!!
This is a really nice compact router kit. Has pretty much handled all my routing needs out in the field. The bases are easy to switch out after you dial them in for first use. Case is well thought out and even had a router bit storage area which was a nice surprise. I'd definitely recommend this to any carpenter or woodworker.

Decent Starter Router
This is my first router. I don't own many woodwork specific tools but this Makita compact router accomplished the task I bought it for and the wife has already dreamed up a couple other projects for it. Only had it a couple weeks so I can't speak to its longevity which is sometimes a problem for tools manufactured in China. I also haven't use the plunge base yet, but I was please with the various dust collection options and I'm glad the router stripped down so easily to handle the various bits and tasks. it would have been great if the kit came with the dust collection attachments but its not like that is a deal breaker for me in retrospect.

Nice Quality
I started making lighthouses a few years ago and wanted to try a router for some of the detailing. The first accessory for the router was a router table because of the small work I was doing. So far the router has more than enough power & has allowed me to make detail work that I couldn't before.

Makita Standard Warranty

The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithiumā€Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty.
