Corded power meets cordless convenience with the XTR01Z 18 V LXT brushless compact router. The 18 V LXT router has an efficient Makita BL™ brushless motor for up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed and longer tool life. It is compatible with Makita 18 V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries. The XTR01Z is engineered for a full range of cabinetry and wood working applications. It has a variable speed control dial (10,000 to 30,000) rpm) to match the speed to the application, with electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load and soft start feature for smoother start-ups and better accuracy. Convenience features include the smooth rack-and-pinion fine depth adjustment system for more precise settings, dual LED lights to illuminate the work surface and a quick release cam lock system for convenient depth adjustments and base removal/installation. Additional bases and attachments are available. For users of corded Makita compact routers (models RT0700C, RT0701C), the bases used with these corded routers are fully compatible with the XTR01Z. In addition, the XTR01Z easily connects to Makita vacuum cleaners with the optional dust nozzle for improved dust extraction. It's part of Makita's expanding 18 V Lithium-Ion system, the world's largest cordless tool system powered by 18 V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18 V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™.
