Makita RF1101
I decided to buy a new fixed base router and picked this one. It has several good features such as soft start, variable speed, accepts both 1/4 and 1/2 in. bits and 2.25 HP. To test it out I used both 1/4 and 1/2 straight bits. The cuts I made didn't even slow it down ! I found no dislikes about this router. I also own the Makita's compact router RT0701C.

I would buy this product again
I use the router in a table and it works very well. It is light weight and
easy to handle. I replaced a larger router, and this handles the work
just as well and is a lot quieter. the two wrench is a little hard to get
used to but i will get it figured out. Overall a very satisfoctory tool

Reconditioned (but who cares?)
I needed a dedicated router (1/2") for my router table. I hate to take them in and out. Saw a reconditioned one on CPO and took a chance. The unit arrived and looked "brand spanking new". This is my second purchase of a reconditioned Makita (the other is a 4/24 belt sander which also continues to work perfectly). [...] continues to work as advertised. I would have ZERO reservation buying from CPO again. Nuff said.

demi c on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is rated for USA 120V (volts) and that is what this will run on, but NOT 220v (volts), or as your question was written, 220 watts. Get an electrician to wire your outlet correctly for it.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can mount this router to a table.


Warranty Information

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.
