This 18V brushless cordless router provides the power of a corded router with the convenience of a cordless tool. Having no power cables to contend with and without the need for an electricity supply, you can route with greater freedom and confidence. The long lasting 4Ah Li-ion 18v battery delivers high levels of torque allowing you to route hardwood, softwood and composite wood including MDF, plywood and chipboard, just as you would with a corded router.

The motor has six stage, variable speed control from 10,000 rpm to 30,000 rpm and features electronic constant speed control which provides constant rotation speed regardless of load conditions. The soft-start function minimises start up shock and allows the router to start in a controlled and smooth manner. By pressing the lock/unlock button the router goes into standby mode and thereafter to start the router you press the start/stop button. Both the 18V Li-ion battery and the fast charger have a series of indicator lights to show the level of charge at any moment in time.

The tough main body and router base are CNC machined from strong aluminium die castings, offering superior rigidity and strength to withstand the most demanding of tasks. This aluminium construction also offers a lighter weight with the entire unit weighing under 2kg for more comfortable use and more precise control when routing by hand. The two large handles on the base feature a soft rubberised grip, ergonomically designed for comfort and control. On the base of the router is an anti-friction, non-marring plastic sub base to ensure a smooth sliding movement over the workpiece. The base of the router accepts industry standard guide bushes (R5061) to allow for working with dovetail, worktop, lock and hinge jigs.

The effortlessly smooth plunge mechanism gives you complete control during plunge cuts or whilst setting the height of your router bit. A three turret depth stop allows you to precisely control plunge depths and the base features a simple to use locking system when the height needs to be fixed. Two LED lights mounted either side of the collet illuminate the workpiece ensuring excellent visibility, right at the point of cut.

The main body of the router can be removed from the plunge base and fitted into three optional bases, further increasing the flexibility of the tool. The optional trimmer base offers ultra-precise one handed control, perfect for edging work, whilst the offset base allows you to get in closer to edges and tight corners with increased stability, and the tilting base allows you to route at angles. The cordless router comes supplied with 1 x 18V Li-ion 4.0Ah battery, a fast charger, 1/4" and 3/8" collets, micro adjustable side fence and a dust nozzle which fastens securely to the base, collecting dust at the source when attached to a vacuum.

This is a precision cordless router, that is quiet and vibration free in operation, enhancing the safety, comfort and control of the operator. Highly recommended. ©

This is the second one of these I’ve bought, one for the workshop and one for the van. The best cordless router out there by far. Perfectly weighted and bags of power. Don’t be fooled by its size it can cope with anything including historic oak! Get an extra battery and the different bases and you are set up for on site with no leads to snag. Excellent bit of kit

R60 18V Cordless Router

Excellent build quality for the price. It is easy to use and manoeuvre over the work piece producing nice clean cuts. A good size battery that lasts longer time than expected. I can highly recommend this tool.

Cordless Router

Very impressed with the build quality especially at this price. Motor seems powerful enough for anything i can throw at it and battery lasts a long time. Big upgrade over my previous Bosch corded router; quieter, less vibration and you don’t realise how much better it is without a cable until you are free of it. Overall very happy and would recommend to anyone.
