New cordless trim router from Makita


Makita has released a new cordless solution for trim, finish work, cabinetry and more with the 18-volt LXT Li-Ion brushless compact router, model XTR01.

“With Makita’s proud history in the woodworking category, particularly in the compact router space with our corded RT0701C 1-1/4-hp compact router, it’s extremely exciting to bring to market a true cordless compact router for the professional,” product manager Andrew Camp said in a statement.

“The new 18-volt LXT router has a compact design, durable aluminum housing, and purpose-built brushless motor that delivers the power and performance that pro’s demand. With its dust extraction capability and full range of accessories and bases, all of them having been sold with our previously-released corded compact router, the new cordless XTR01 is an easy and cost-effective way for the thousands and thousands of current Makita users to go cordless and extend the value of their current router accessory investment.”
