Product Details

This is an exceptionally precise, compact router designed for hand held use yet it is equally at home mounted in a router table. The main body and base of the router are CNC machined from aluminium die castings. The plunge mechanism is smooth and controlled to allow for precise positioning and plunging of the cutter.

The 710 watt high torque motor generates an impressive output of 580 watt and features variable speed control from 13,000 to 33,000rpm. The higher speed ranges allow you to route using small diameter cutters, whilst the slower speed ranges allow for the use of larger diameter cutters.

The two main handles have a rubberised soft grip and are 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. A three turret depth stop allows you to precisely control plunge depths and there is a simple and efficient base lock system. The main body of the router can be removed from the plunge base and fitted to the optional trimmer base when ultra precise one handed control is required.

Having over 25 years experience of routing, this in our opinion is possibly the finest compact body router on the market. Supplied with 1/4" and 3/8" collets, adjustable side fence and a spare set of motor brushes. Highly recommended for precise handheld or table mounted use.

* Please note: the dust nozzle is not included

Matthew Grime

With the fixed base, this works well. The plung base is no good at all, though. It racks on the pillars enough to mean it is useless for any precision work. The 4 stars are for the fixed base version. The plunge base gets 0 stars.

Mark Shuttleworth

Don't understand why power tools have 1 meter power cable should be 2.5m so no need for extension lead. The speed control moves a bit when using the router but for the price 5 stars

Adrian Barascu

Excellent value for the money.
Bought it with the fixed round router base.
Have both RT0700 and 3709/3710 from Makita. This is on par with the RT0700, and way above 3709 in build quality.
Quite and powerful for it's size, nice feeling when working with it. The plunge base works ok, some burrs on the parallel fence, fixed in 1 minute with a file.
If you could bring metric collets it would be perfect. I am using the ones that came with the makita. :)
Would recommend to anybody searching for a router of this size.

Mr Vernon Jones

I have been looking for a compact router for some time as a addition to my old Elu. I was looking at the Makita RO700 and I am sure this is the same router. The castings appear identical apart from the branding and the motor casing has the same shape and air vents. Anyway I took the plunge (ha ha) and purchased this router last week. The general design and manufacturing quality is excellent, the motor is very smooth when running though the speeds and the plunge is controlled with minimal side play. I have routed some through dovetails and added a beading to piece of 7/8" wide oak and it has been easy to hold and manoeuvre with one hand. Make sure you press hard on the plunge lock lever other wise it can creep back up. Fantastic buy and well recommended.

P Hardy

Very well balanced router that is easy to control with one hand. Used it to make a sign with the Milescraft Sign Pro kit and it worked a treat. Great little router with a lot of power and precision.

James R

I have a very large Makita 1/2" router that is quite difficult to control when edging due to its size and weight. This compact router is excellent at edging as you can clearly see the cutting line and due to its narrow body you can use with one hand. The build quality is far greater than I expected and is made mainly from aluminium die castings. So far the power of the motor has been sufficient for my work and the control dials and on off switch are easily reached with your fingers whilst still gripping the body. This is a quality router that I can would recommend for edge routing and fine detail work. Five out of five so far.
