Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great addition to my shop I bought this a month ago and have definitely put a few hours on it. It has ample power even as a cordless tool. As with any router you need to understand the finesse in how much to cut in a pass and what speed is reasonable. I need to bring my router back in for an issue with the battery. The lock that holds the battery in place leaves 1/4" of play and this is enough for the battery to disengage when you put it down. A simple push of the battery reconnects it, but it shouldn't even be an issue. The on switch is a little awkward to engage, but you get used to it. Overall this tool is the Ridgid quality that I am used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast of a Trim Router I bought this maybe a year ago and after some heavy repeated use I can vouch for its quality and functionality. It packs a mean punch for such a small router. Not meant for plowing dados all day but I've done a few with the right battery and it held up just fine. Well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, light and powerful. Excellent power and maneuverability. Easy to control and view area of work. Great for small applications where a large router is hard to control due to size or supporting work piece. No cords to get in the way. Adjustments are very easy and quick to make to depth of cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little wireless router I use my router for cutting circles and routing out sections of wood to counter sink plate steel into and this little tool handles it all without a hiccup. Just have a few charged batteries ready as the router isn’t exactly energy efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles well. Good Power I use this mostly for finishing. Cove, round over, and ogee bits. No hang up on cords. I have yet to set in a jig for dado's or rabbits. Plenty of power and is easy to hold and direct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressed, super easy to use. Works awesome, even smaller than I thought it would be. It’s so much less intimidating than my full size router! Extremely easy to use.

Could someone tell me if a battery comes with it?

Asked by: Tilly
This tool is a bare tool. That simply means that it does not come with a battery, neither does it come with a charger. You'll have to purchase these separately.
