The brushless motor allows the router to generate the same power as corded 1.25 horsepower routers. POWERSTATE also allows for best-in-class 31,000 RPM to ensure speed and power to make clean and precise cuts in hard materials. To choose the best control for the application at hand; the variable-speed dial allows users to adjust the speed between 10,000 and 3,000 RPM.

REDLITHIUM battery power allows the router to power through up to 250 ft of 3/8″ round-overs in red oak. As a result, the router eliminates frequent trips to the charger and the hassle of cords. With the addition of REDLINK PLUS Intelligence, the technology ensures maximum performance of the router under load and prevents against overload and overheat.


Because Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity with performance and trade-driven solutions, the router is equipped with an array of additional features. The design allows for micro and macro-adjust buttons for fast, accurate depth adjustments during highly precise work. Additionally, the router has a sturdy 4″ sub-base plate for stability and dual-LED lights to illuminate the work surface. The compact router is entirely compatible with the entire M18 line.
