Makita XTR01Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Compact Router, Bare Tool

Item #

The Makita XTR01Z Compact Router provides the power of a corded tool with the convenience of cordless. Paired with a Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery (battery and charger sold separately), it is capable of a wide range of routing tasks, and has no cord to hold you down. It boasts a compact, ergonomic design at 8-7/8'' tall, and weighs only 4.6 lbs. with a 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). Features a Makita BL™ Brushless Motor for better run time, power, speed, and longer tool life. It has a variable speed dial that adjusts from 10,000 – 30,000 RPM to match the speed to the application, electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load and soft start to reduce unexpected torque at startup. The rack-and-pinion fine depth adjustment system provides smooth, precise depth settings, while the quick-release cam lock allows larger depth adjustments and base removal/installation. Dual LED lights provide visibility in dim lighting. Users of corded Makita Compact Routers (models RT0700C, RT0701C), will be happy to know that the corded bases are fully compatible with the XTR01Z router. With the optional dust nozzle, the XTR01Z can be easily connected to your Makita vacuum cleaner. Star Protection Computer Controls™ let the tool and battery exchange data to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with a Star symbol (battery and charger sold separately).

I wanted a light weight cordless router for trimming out our new home and I already own several Makita batteries and chargers.

Where is this router made Japan or China? I find that the Japanese made Makita products are profoundly longer lasting and higher quality than the Chinese made version.

BEST ANSWER: Made in China. My experience is that the Makita made in China has never failed. I have five of the battery powered which are new and at least 10 of the corded model that are as much as six plus years old. They have been used daily in a commercial cabinet shop for producing plastic laminate cabinetry and counter tops. Zero failures with over six years of use on some of them.
