The RP1800 is a plunge router with 22,000 rpm; the RP2301FC is a plunge router with variable speed from 9,000 to 22,000 rpm. Both have up to 2-3⁄4" plunge depth capacity, quick-release plunge depth adjustment and three preset depth stops, and the RP2301FC also has built-in twin LED lights for illuminating the work area. The Makita routers accept 1/4"- and 1/2"-shank bits, with 2010 suggested prices of $259 for the RP1800 and $329 for the RP2301FC.
