The new Makita 1-1/4HP Compact Router Kit (RT0700CX3) is quickly earning fans for its combination of power and precision in a compact size. And with an unmatched kit option that includes all the bases needed for routing tasks, woodworkers and trim carpenters are putting the RT0700CX3 at the top of the growing compact router category.
This week, ToolSelect.com handed a sample RT0700CX3 to Nate Horton, a trim carpenter and serious build-it-yourselfer based in Georgia. Horton used the tool in a remodeling project, and ToolSelect.com's unique review format includes a video interview that captures all of Horton's comments.
In the video below, Horton explains his perfect 5-star rating, noting the power and performance of the Makita Compact Router, as well as the ease of use and the value of the kit option. Horton agreed with ToolSelect.com's Gerry Barnaby that it was "a monster of a router in a small package," and called the RT0700CX3 "the nicest compact router I've had in my hands, ever."
