Handy little tool

Mr R S Palmer, 10/12/2023

Works well and reasonably priced

customer, 04/10/2023

As usual Makita products are good.It’s like a can of paint.It does what it says.

Ciprian, 31/08/2023

Excellent bit of kit. Easy to set up and use. Haven't used all bases yet , but will do eventually. Nice and comfortable in the hand. I'm using 5ah batteries, but haven't used it continuously to determine battery life. Overall very pleased!!

Kevin Bruce, 13/08/2023

Had to get replacement as first power unit failed.

Mr H, 03/07/2023

Very comprehensive set of bases which will allow numerous functions not possible before. Looking forward to putting them through their paces. The trimmer itself is very quiet in operation

Dennis Kilbey, 11/06/2023

A beautifully designed and constructed tool set. The motor is smooth and powerful making the router a pleasure to use. It is the right weight for controlling whilf doing fine work. Very quick and easy to set up and adjust. Excellent all round.

Keen Amateur, 31/05/2023

Love this kit decent power and extra attachments hand and good quality as you would expect from makita

Mr Ian Selley, 15/03/2023


Ian Biggs, 22/01/2023

i have still not received my order which was due 16th November and i have to keep contacting FFX and still no conformation on when it will be due i think they need to work on their customer service

Stephen Cooper, 28/11/2022

Been promising myself one of these for some time now, glad I made the commitment to buy, used it the day after it was delivered

Kelly King, 15/11/2022

Makita. Say no more 👍🏻

Adamski the great., 24/10/2022

Expensive but beautifully thought out and made. So much easier than fussing with mains cables. As with makita saw, used by several builders I know for years so durability not in doubt.

Mr David Poole, 10/06/2022

Great little machine ideal to leave set up for jobs where you don’t have any mains power on site.

Harjinder Johal, 15/05/2022

Really good tool so many uses


Cracking little palm router that really works well with the plunge base. Rarely find myself needing to reach for the corded 1/2 anymore.

Jason, 12/04/2022

Perfect working,thanks

Jurgita Paskeviciute, 10/04/2022

Excellent tool value for money fast delivery can’t go wrong

D chilley, 06/04/2022

Very good quality

emilian zane, 04/04/2022

Excellent. All you could wish for!

Trevor Ewers, 04/02/2022

Great light weight router. Would have given 5 stars, if the main router base came with a fence, which was another £35.

Phil Rosser, 08/01/2022

Great product

HTEIN LYNN, 06/12/2021


Nicholas Dalton, 05/12/2021

Well balanced and great extra bases

ROB MCMILLAN, 04/12/2021

I have two of these no problems excellent choice

Mr groom, 02/12/2021

So far so good. Usual well built and solid Makita build, and good power for a 1/4” cordless. Only used one of the bases so far but has been super little tool for trimming edge of a new mobile bench (probably pushing it since it was two layers of 18 mm ply) and putting a chamfer on a number of items of ply and hardwood edge trim. Looking forward to using it on more projects.

James Young, 02/12/2021

Another Makita to the collection .great bit of kit used router to make window board

customer, 30/11/2021

Very easy to setup and use, with every product there is always something some one would like to be added to improve an item. Just use it and enjoy it.

Jay, 28/11/2021

It is very helpful for work thanks

David Wintin, 28/11/2021

Great little router even better with no power cord in the way

Nick hooper, 12/11/2021

Always wanted one of these and I’ve not been disappointed, there’s plenty of copies out there but not point going for anything rubbish.

Very good tool

Michael Raymond, 26/08/2020

Son in law is very happy with quality and performance of this Piece of kit - uses regularly as he’s A self employed builder

Paula , 26/08/2020

I have a few power tools but this is next level what a fantastic piece of kit definitely definitely recommend

Angela Anderson, 10/08/2020

Great set but you’ve got to be using it a lot to justify the spend. Needs extraction or you just can’t see the piece after a few seconds.

Julian Haworth, 10/08/2020

Although some of it maybe a bit cheap this is an excellent router the LED light make it great to use on detail jobs plus 4 bases make it just a superb buy. I borrowed this once from a friend went straight out and bought one for myself. Super great value ;)

Alan, 22/07/2020

Superb in all respects

John Kernahan, 04/05/2020

Very good tool well done makita

D chilley, 13/04/2020

Great kit, very good build and brought at the promotional price, so excellent value

Chris, 06/04/2020

Excellent tool for those llighter jobs and easier to handle than my main router.

ANDREW BIRD, 23/03/2020

Tools a excellent, I used same from years !

Petre Petkov, 10/03/2020

Absolutely awesome machine for its size and power. Does the work of a mains version without complaint and the kit makes it even more versatile. My old Elu can finally go into retirement.

Mr Aleks, 27/12/2019

Purchase and delivery straightforward as usual with FFX. Quality appears consistent with most of my past experience of Makita, plus numerous other user reviews. But ask me again about own experience of use and build-quality/ accuracy in a couple of year's time... Instant gratification can be very misleading!

DalesFolk, 17/12/2019

This is a gift for my husband who is a carpenter/ joiner. Can’t say more than that as he’s the one who’ll be using it. But it is what he wanted to add to his tools.

julie pearse, 17/12/2019

Cannot fault the tools and the service

Mr john irwin, 06/12/2019

Does what it says on the tin

Ashliegh Bishop, 29/11/2019

Brilliant piece of kit

James Sandland, 16/11/2019

Top bit of kit very pleased

Donna Kelf, 15/11/2019

Excellent product, great build quality and works very well. Makita I am really pleased with the products I have purchased

Mrs Denise Stevens, 15/11/2019

Great job

P DEAN, 15/11/2019

Very good price

Nicolae Costicea, 09/11/2019

Look online for a while trying to find the best deal, being a sole trader cost is important, and FFX was the best value and the delivery was quick as well. Would definitely be using them again. 👍

Mr Jamie Southernwood, 12/07/2019

Great tool to have as its so user friendly & because its battery powered no leads to worry about. I've only used the trimming base & the main router base, its handled both operations really well & hasn't struggled for battery life, I would recommend minimum use of a 4 ah battery & it will handle most things.

Greg Taylor, 12/04/2019

no quarter inch collet with my product but looks and sounds nice i bet the tool would work fantastic if I could fit a router bit ! O wait I cant NO COLLET.!

andy, 09/03/2019

Lovely trimmer, handy when I am doing doors, love not having to drag a lead around all day. All the extras are brilliant too

Richard Snares, 04/09/2018

Faultless ffx and I aren't really shy

MarkUtting, 11/08/2018

Amazing bit of kit. Powerful and sturdy.

Daniel Garnett, 20/07/2018

Great router & value for money.

Patrick Chapple, 13/07/2018

Great tool should have brought one age’s ago

Chris gregson, 29/06/2018

Having owned the cabled option for years, absolutely loved it compared to others due to the lower weight of the router, which wont make your hands tired using it all day. Now purchased the battery option, slightly heavier (due to the battery), but there are no extensions and the power cord is not in your way. This speeds up the work and gives you more flexibility! Love it! The router is light, which wont make you hands tired using it all day long and battery option is great as the power cable wont be in your way!!!

Yordan Krastev, 29/06/2018

About time too great piece of kit

L j Bennett, 25/05/2018

Never arrived, rubbish service

Petery, 25/05/2018

Excellent tool wish I’d bought it before now. FFX very reliable and quick delivery

stuart , 30/04/2018

Most of my kit is Makita 18v and I bought to do a specific job, as it had the offset base which can get close into a corner and also It's a good solid piece of kit and did the job effortlessly though there is no height adjustment on the offset base. I will be definitely be using it many times more.

Customer, 20/04/2018

excellent, very quick service

DACE OSE, 23/03/2018

It's a beauty with many standard add-on's in the box.

heer mallee, 13/01/2018

I have a 110 volt Makita router trimmer, I've used a cordless trimmer and found it to be as good if not better than the corded version. no restraints on power supply access.

Mitchell Wood, 28/12/2017

good piece of tool kit to buy

Paul Pether, 23/12/2017

Great tool and accessories, very flexible does everything i need.

Mike Wadman, 17/12/2017

Late very late...........

James Philpotts, 15/12/2017

Very handy not need the cables

Maciej Gladkowski, 15/12/2017

super value - bit early to do a review really - but it was just what I was looking for - no awkward leads to get caught just at the wrong time. Makita batteries (5.0ah) are second to none... If your going to invest in a system this is the one.. The power on the LXT range enhances productivity dramatically - Did an outdoor job in two freezing cold days - only had to change one battery!
