Product Overview


Corded power meets cordless convenience with the 18V LXT Brushless Compact Router Kit, model XTR01T7. The 18V LXT Router has an efficient Makita BL Brushless Motor for up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The kit includes two efficient 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries, and each reaches a full charge in only 45 minutes – the fastest charge-time in the category – for less downtime and increased productivity. The XTR01T7 is engineered for a full range of cabinetry and woodworking applications. It has a variable speed control dial (10,000 – 30,000) RPM) to match the speed to the application, with electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load and soft start feature for smoother start-ups and better accuracy. Convenience features include the smooth rack-and-pinion fine depth adjustment system for more precise settings, dual LED lights to illuminate the work surface, and a quick release cam lock system for convenient depth adjustments and base removal/installation. The kit includes a plunge base, and additional bases and attachments are available. For users of corded Makita Compact Routers (models RT0700C, RT0701C), the bases used with these corded routers are fully compatible with the XTR01T7. In addition, the XTR01T7 easily connects to Makita vacuum cleaners with the optional dust nozzle for improved dust extraction.

Works Like A Corded Tool
I had a cabinet shop from 1970 - 1983. Back then we layed our own Formica tops. At that time I could only dream of a cordless router. We also made thousands of doors using a router to cut a French groove in a plywood door. Number one problem was dragging that cord around.

The Makita is quiet, comfortable to hold and runs vibration free. I haven't used it enough to judge battery life but since it came with 2 batteries I doubt that will be a problem. The rack and pinion depth adjustment works well and it's easy to change bits with just one wrench.

Somebody put a lot of thought into this router

Describe Yourself:
Love this router!!
This little Makita is awesome!! Very nice to not have a cord in your way or getting snagged on stuff. I’ve only used it on soft wood but it did a great job. It will automatically shut off if you put to much pressure against it which is a nice safety feature. I just go slow with it. So far battery life has been good. The 5.0 ah battery’s do great on it.

1/2 or 1/4 inch collet?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1/4” collet, according to included items in the description. Don’t know of any compact routers that have collets larger than 1/4”.
