Product Details

This powerful, 2400w variable speed motor premium performance motor is designed and engineered specifically for use with router lifts and uses the latest electronic technology. It features a torque control system that prevents the motor from slowing under load, ensuring that the rotational speed remains constant, no matter what diameter of router bit you are using or how hard the wood, resulting in a superior workpiece finish. A variable speed control dial, conveniently positioned on the bottom of the motor for easy-reach, allows you to select speeds from 10,000 to 22,000 rpm.

With soft start technology, the router motor gradually increases the speed from zero to the desired level for a safer, more enjoyable routing experience. An air cool system ensures a constant flow of fresh air to prevent the risk of the motor overheating, when installed in the Rutlands® dust box or in a close-sided router table. The dust protection system prevents dust from causing damage to the motor to ensure a long trouble-free life and the precision machined spindle bearings are guaranteed for ultra smooth, vibration free rotation.

The two ER collets 1/4" and 1/2" are precision machined to ensure perfect balance and concentricity and the large off-set wrenches allow for fast bit change over. Optional 6mm, 8mm and 12mm metric collets are readily available. This motor is engineered to fit all Rutlands® router lifts and any other lift that holds a 106mm diameter body. This is a premium performance 230v router motor with a three year warranty and in the event that it should fail due to a material or manufacturing defect, the motor or component will be replaced free of charge.©

Whilst brand new I'm reluctant to give this five stars mainly because this is the second one I have bought with the previous one being the 1800w one that died recently. Apart from the power it's the same machine.

Firstly, Rutlands are without a doubt the cheapest place to get this router from. There are various other suppliers with their brand name on the machine but even ordering via Banggood this was cheaper. Tick one for Rutlands.

Delivery was quick - at least from Rutlands. Our wonderful Royal Mail sent an email saying they couldn't find my address despite having ordered from Rutlands before and lived in the same house for 12 years. There's a reason why very large companies such as the oil majors used DHL and FedEx...

The actual router fits my router lifter that I bought from Rutlands many years ago perfectly. I'm sure it's a fairly standard size and will fit any of them.

In use it's smooth and powerful. So far vibration free although that does depend a bit on what bits you use as large cheap ones can be unbalanced.

Now, here's a couple of thoughts based upon the previous version which is the same as this mostly.

I ended up changing both bearings fairly quickly because they failed. They are no name Chinesium ones and I put SKF ones in.

The brushes take a hammering and the first lot only lasted a couple of months. The second lot lasted a couple of years and the third until the machine fell apart.

The speed control stopped working around 4 years old and recently the internal fan that pulls air through the motor destroyed itself taking out a good bit of the internals. However, as bad as that sounds the reality is that I used that router quite heavily for nearly 7 years and I'd say that a few bushes and a set of bearings is to be expected.

With this router being more powerful I hope that when used hard it will stand up to the electrical abuse more and thus resist vibration

Overall, it's my second one and they are pretty meaty so I can't say too much bad about it. For light use it will probably last ages - apart from the bearings - and even with really heavy use it will last a few years.

This is a very good router super smooth no vibration and very powerful I have one set up in a duplicating machine so it gets a lot of work and it can handle it.

Peter Turner

Ordered this after having countless problems with the Woodworkers Workshop motor.

The build quality of this is far superior with far less vibration.

Fits perfectly in both my Jessem and Rutlands lifts.

Very much recommend.

Mark Chisholm

The router motor is a gem. The blurb says it is heavy and very smooth and to be honest I took that with a pinch of salt as I figured that the price would reduce the standard. How wrong I was. It is seriously smooth and vibration free. I have two professional Hitachi 1/2" routers and they are not as quiet and vibration free as this Xact router. I was quite surprised to be honest about that.

Keneth Berry

I wanted to keep my 1/2" router as a dedicated handheld trim router so needed a motor I could keep on the table. Surprisingly quiet for its size and power and hasn't remotely struggled with anything I've used it on so far.

tom west

this motor is a beast, so powerful when you need it, came with 2 collets which is useful been using it for some long sessions and its been brill

Nik

Useful router motor at a great price. Only one down side - it is not 2400 Watts. The label on the tool and the User Manual state it is 1800 Watts. It is still powerful enough though.

Paul Smitson

I bought both the router motor and the router lift and I am delighted with the combined performance. You can achieve precise cutter height adjustment with ease. One hand rotates the handle to raise the cutter the other holds you rule to measure the height. So fast and so simple and the motor is extremely powerful. Makes routing enjoyable.

John Bonsall

When using large raised filed panel cutters, even in hardwood this little beauty does not falter and allows for an exceptional finish. My previous Makita 3612C router would slow under heavy loads and end up burning the surface.

Paul Sharples

Really quite, really powerful and really impressed. I have mine mounted in the Xact router lift in a home made table.
