MAKITA ADDS TWO NEW 3-1/4 HP ROUTERS WITH POWER, PRECISION AND SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

OCTOBER 5, 2009  La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of two new best-in-class 3-1/4 HP Plunge Routers, models RP1800 and RP2301FC (Variable Speed). The two new routers add to Makita’s growing line of woodworking and finish tools, and are engineered to deliver powerful precision with smooth plunge action and superior performance.

“Tradesmen who use 3-1/4 HP routers require power and speed combined with precision features for maximum performance,” said Joe Soto, Makita’s product manager – residential and pneumatics. “The new RP1800 and RP2301FC deliver power and precision, with an increased plunge capacity for a wide range of applications including fine woodworking, cabinetry, windows, doors, and more.”
 
RP1800 3-1/4 HP Plunge Router
The RP1800 (top and middle-right) features a 15 AMP motor with 22,000 RPM. It has a 0” – 2-3/4” plunge depth capacity for easy penetration into the work piece, with linear ball bearings for smooth plunge action. The RP1800 is engineered with oversized ball bearing construction – as well as a built-in fan with labyrinth construction to minimize dust from entering the tool – for longer tool life.
 
RP2301FC 3-1/4 HP Plunge Router (Variable Speed)
The RP2301FC (bottom-right) features a 15 AMP motor with variable speed from 9,000 - 22,000 RPM and electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load. The RP2301FC has a soft start feature for smooth start-ups and an electric brake for increased productivity. It has a 0” – 2-3/4” plunge depth capacity for easy penetration into the work piece, with linear ball bearings for smooth plunge action. The RP2301FC is engineered with oversized ball bearing construction – as well as a built-in fan with labyrinth construction to minimize dust from entering the tool – for longer tool life. The RP2301FC also has built-in twin L.E.D. lights to illuminate the work area for increased visibility.
 
Both Routers Engineered with Ease-of-Use Features
Both routers have ergonomic rubberized handles with a built-in two-finger switch for added control, with a lock-on trigger for continuous operation. The quick release plunge depth adjustment with micro control and three preset depth stops are engineered for added precision, and the plunge lock lever is conveniently located for efficient operation. The RP1800 and RP2301FC are equipped with a shaft lock for quick and easy bit changes, and the “tool-less” template guide system provides quick and easy installation and removal. Additional ease-of-use features include easy-to-read depth scales, a chip deflector engineered to direct chips away from the operator, and a durable flat top design for stability when changing bits.
 
The RP1800 and RP2301FC use ¼” and ½” shank router bits, and are engineered for fine woodworking, cabinetry, furniture making, counter tops, decking, windows and doors, and general carpentry. It is ideal for professional woodworkers, furniture makers, professional craftsmen, cabinet makers, deck builders, boat builders, and general contractors seeking a best in class 3-1/4 HP plunge router. The RP1800 and RP2301FC are two more examples of Makita’s commitment to innovative technology and best in class engineering.
