Makita 18-Volt Lithium-ion is the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. At the heart of Makita 18-Volt LXT Series is the efficient Rapid Optimum Charger. The Rapid Optimum Charger offers key advantages for Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion cordless tool users. The exclusive built-in fan cools the battery (sold separately) by forcing air through the battery’s air vents during the charging process for faster charging. The charger communicates with the battery’s built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. The result is category-leading battery charge times, which means the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (note: also charges 14.4-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries).

Very slow speed like blade change thou. Will stick with electric version for heavy cutting. Ggood for small cuts.
Great router. Slightly loose/sloppy depth knob, but it cinches down tight. Some may find it a little too loose for finer depth adjustments. Very nice brake on the drive. Strongly suggest adding the dust/vacuum attachment which is not included.
Has the features of a full-size router including a light and comes with a fence.
I have used d wall, but makita is a lot better
I like everything about this router except the placement of the on and off switch…I wish it was more ergonomic to operate with one hand.
great portable saw, powerful enough for most jobs.
It is easy to use, has adequate power and is versatile and convenient. I am very happy with this purchase.
Great Brand. Great product. Plan to have this for decades.
Very well balanced tool to operate. Very comfortable in hand
Time will tell. I haven’t had it long enough to see how long it lasts. But it seems to have a lot of power
It has so much power and last so long, of course it is new. But my son has Makita and they have worked good for him for a long time, that’s why I switched to Makita.
This is my favorite cordless router in its class. This has nice power and paired with Makita’s 5 amp/hr batteries, it lasts a long time. This router is compact, and nicely featured. Do not buy this thinking you are getting the same power as a full-size corded model. Its a great little router, but be realistic in your expectations. It works well for me with aluminum lowers.
Got this to replace my corded trimmer that burned up. I was shocked at the quality of the build. Very solid but not heavy. Even with the battery on top it is still well balanced. Bit change is easy. Depth adjustment is smooth and stays. Easily the best small router I have ever used. Only weird thing is the on off button placement is not where my fingers would naturally go, but getting used to it.
not a brushless tool
More power than I expected , not too hard on batteries
Saw it’s great cuts like butter
This is a great saw with very easy blade changes. Very pleased with this purchase!
Powerful and has cut through wood and metal with ease.
Fixed blade positions (up or down).Power and battery life seem appropriate for the work being done.
Compact and easy to use. Battery has a surprisingly long life.
