    Can I get it to be powered from a 110v power supply (yellow plug) accessible to British safety standards?

      Our inventory is designed to be used within the USA only. Taking these units outside the USA could void your warranty

      Answered on 3/28/2016 by Ray from Atlanta


      This router indicates it is 120V. If the power outlet is truly 110V it will
      operate correctly. I'm unfamiliar with the "yellow plug" you describe, but
      British Standard BS 1363 is 220 - 240V and will burn up the motor. You
      would need a transformer to convert to 110 - 120V if you are using standard
      British power outlet. I have a great deal of experience with international
      power formats. If you can identify the Yellow outlet you are describing, I
      may be able to assist further. you can use the following site to help with
      Otherwise, I would place a multi-meter on the outlet and verify the voltage.

      I am not sure. I would contact the manufacturer directly and get their direction. Better safe than sorry. If you can you won't be disappointed. This an excellent product

      It's 60 hertz, all the parts are manufactured throughout the Orient and
      probably assembled in Japan.

Makita Standard Warranty

The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
