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.

Great router without the cord
I was a little skeptical of this given it was cordless. I have a Makita RT0701 that i've have for a few years and really like so when i saw this I thought i'd give it a try and return it if it didn't work well. So far I'm loving it and it's taken over all uses of the corded one. Great product!!

Smooth running router
This little router is great if you've already got some Makita gear. It's easy to adjust and use, runs smoothly and seems to have plenty of power on that excellent Makita 18v battery platform. Base is a little small for some projects I've done, but you can make and attach a larger or on just get tah that plunge base that looks excellent.

Turns out I didn’t read the fine print. They got me on that one won’t happen again. Bottom line read the fine print. Have to have a lawyer just to buy a tool now a days
