Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a woodworking router, just a laminate trimmer This is not really a router, it is advertised as router but it is really just a laminate trimmer. It couldn't go through 3/4 cut 1/8 deep without burning the motor after 3 cuts only. At least it is brand new so going back to the store for warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from some design issues A little disappointed in the base plate for this router. The holes are just a little off, so it's difficult to swap plates; the circular plate seems even worse. Neither plate was engineered with the standard template guide holder hole - the hole is too large, and has no indent. What were they thinking??? It would have taken zero effort an cost.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for the money. Out of the box the router motor worked well for the few light jobs I have done. However, the quality is poor. The battery has a very loose fit, the adjustment is quite loose, and the locking cam only keeps the house right in the lower end of travel. I would not recommend this product, spend the extra money for a better brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy little router So far I have only used this router for two small projects but I am very impressed with it so far. Battery seems to last long. It is light and easy to handle. I probably will now put a round over on a lot of my projects just because this is so convenient to use. Glad I purchased this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it is safer. I think a cordless router is safer, as there is no cord to get caught as you move the router over your workpiece. This is a nice compact unit. The power switch is kind of awkward (pull to turn on) and will take some getting used to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great tool Great little tool! It’s super light, compact and I love the fine adjustment. The biggest fail however is that this comes with several loose pieces, but, doesn’t include a carrying case like a lot of the other Ridgid tools.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken after 5 months I used this once and then it wouldn't turn on 5 months after I pruchased it. Now it's being serviced but a part is back ordered so I'm concerned I won't get this tool back for weeks or months from now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with overall Ridgid quality Popped on a battery (yes, octane) yesterday, pulled the switch, and there was a pop, a flash from inside, then nothing but smoke. Tool was completely dead. I’ve only used this a handful of times, but when I reach for it, chances are there is no other tool that could do the job except for my full size corded router, so having it out of commission is quite frustrating. Had the same thing happen to the strath force driver, Service center wrote it off and two months later I’m still waiting for the replacement to arrive. So I expect to be without this for months now as well. My octane jobmax broke the same day, the main gear that engages the heads broke (why such an important part is made of plastic can be no other reason than cost savings), my octane hammer drill chuck tightens itself so much I have to put vice grips on it to get it off, octane circular saw blade guard broke, and so far I’ve had the side metal tabs on two batteries break off on removing them from a tool. This is all less than 2 years of infrequent use…will certainly not be purchasing into this line any further, unfortunately I’m already deep in their octane line…which now seems to be getting phased out.

I am looking to by the Ridgid cordless router. I currently have other ridgid tools and am very impressed with them. I would like to know if I can attach this router to a router table, it looks like a master craft table.

Asked by: Alpineman
Hi -Alpineman, Thanks for reaching out to us. The RIDGID 18V OCTANE Hand Router is an outstanding tools with unbeatable capabilities. You will not be disappointed. It does work with several router tables including the RYOBI router table. We have not used it or tested it with Master Craft products. To better understand if it will fit normally, please contact Canadian Tire. We hope this helps! Thanks, RIDGID Canada Team.

I’m looking at purchasing this tool but wanted to know if there is a light on it like many other tools.

Yes there is a light and it is perfectly placed for lighting up the actual cut area... I love my router!

Does this router come with a zipper bag like so many ridgid tools come in?

Asked by: Lori
Like Ridgid Canada says, no bag. I'm keeping the box it came in to store all the accessories (and the box has all the part, model #'s, etc printed on the outside). Good for registering the tool.

Does this router have variable speed?

Asked by: oudidit2
Yes. It has a variable speed knob rated 1 though 7. It's like from ½ speed to double speed (3 being normal speed). I don't know it's exact rpm.

Hi just received the router. 1 question, why is there a square & round removable base plate?

For following different types of patterns. Straight line vs arks.

What's the load and no load RPM?

Asked by: HSH36

Is this unit variable speed? If so what is the range? I don't think it has, but I've seen conflicting answers to this question
