Makita RP2301FCXK 1/2in Variable Speed Plunge Router with Case

The model RP2301FC is the upgraded tool of the current plunge-type electronic router model 3612C. The Makita RP2301 plunge router is powerful, smooth and durable.


The very powerful - 2100W motor cuts through material with ease followed up by the linear ball bearing that provides a super smooth plunge action without excessive play or tightness. The Makita RP2301 can easily be operated with one hand with ergonomic grips providing maximum control (The knob type handles provide comfort and grip in equal measures ). The router is extremely durable obtained by using larger sized ball bearing on the drive end of armature.
