Product Details

This 18v brushless cordless router provides the power of a corded router with the convenience of a cordless tool and is supplied with 3 bases: a trimming base, a tilting base and an offset base. 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 the three supplied bases, further increasing the flexibility of the tool. The 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 the three additional bases, 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. The router has a 3 year warranty and in the event that it fails due to a material or manufacturing defect the component will be replaced free of charge. Highly recommended. ©

Mark Smith

Superb build quality using it daily battery life is amazing as all things I have purchased from Rutlands fast delivery and great time value

Alfred Pointon

Nice smooth plunge action. Whisper quiet. Well balanced. Great safety system as well - you have to press a button to switch the battery on and then press the button next to it to start the router. Prevents risk of any accidental start up. Delighted with the router.

Simon Turnton

Brilliant for routing out when fritting hinges and locks. Nice compact body gives you excellent visibility. Base accepts all of my existing guide bushes so i can use my old hinge and lock jigs without buying extras. Hung 8 doors and battery still going.

Liam Milton

Waited some time for this to be released and I am not disappointed. Took it for a test run last night and it is very smooth and quiet, the two handed base is great for tough work and adds extra stability. Have recommended to my fellow woodworkers.

Keith Blackman

Not used mine much yet but it seems to be up to the usual Rutlands standard. It is infinitely better than a corded version, it can be used anywhere in my workshop or outside and the battery has such a long life I don't think I will ever run out of charge mid project. Super smooth running with virtually no vibration, it is also so quiet compared to my coreded router. Soft start and variable speed are useful features.

James Porter

Great cordless router and very quiet compared to my old corded Elu. It is really well balanced, with little vibration, so much so that you can sit it on the bench and it does not 'walk away'. Used with a 12mm straight plunge bit on tulip and it routed over 24 feet and the battery indicator still showed full charge. Just love the freedom of not having to worry about cutting and moving cables. Excellent router
