Makita launches new corded routers

Makita's new RP2303F 1/2in plunge router

Makita UK has expanded its offering with the launch of two new corded routers: the RP2303F 1/2in plunge router and the RT0702C 1/4in router trimmer - both of which offer the power and precision required to make light work of any woodworking task.

RP2303F 1/2in plunge router

The RP2303F delivers an impressive no-load speed of up to 22,000rpm, ensuring it can tackle cutting tasks with ease. Designed as an upgrade to its predecessor model RP2301F, this machine features a linear ball-bearing plunge system for super-smooth action. It has a deep plunge capacity of up to 70mm and an easy-to-read cutting depth scale, for precision work. What’s more, variable speed control and constant speed control work to optimise output for maximum cutting efficiency.

To ensure user safety, the RP2303F includes Makita’s anti-restart function and an in-built dust collector so it can easily be connected to an extraction unit. The router, available in either 110V or 240V, can be purchased as body-only (RP2303FC) or with a carry case (RP23030FCJ).

This slim and ergonomically designed trimmer features four different base assemblies for added versatility. Users can quickly remove the base to install either a trimmer base, tilt base or plunge base depending on the task. The powerful 710W motor delivers up to 34,000rpm and thanks to easy depth adjustment, it always ensures precision cutting. Variable speed control and constant speed control ensure the machine is always working at optimum efficiency.

The RT0702CX2, available in either 110V and 240V, also features Makita’s anti-restart function and in-built dust collection, which allows it to be connected to an extractor.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK, said: “The RP2303F and RT0702C are useful tools for any woodworker or general contractor to have in their kit. These corded machines offer the power and efficiency required for professional use and will make light work of any wood cutting task.”
