Make Clean, Precise Cuts With Milwaukee's New M18 FUEL Compact Router

Milwaukee Tool is proud to announce the M18 FUEL Compact Router which combines the power, speed, and adjustability needed to make clean cuts in a variety of materials and applications. Leveraging M18 FUEL* cordless technology, the router generates corded performance, delivers fast, accurate adjustments and cuts up to 250 ft of 3/8” round-overs in red oak per charge.

The router combines three exclusive innovations – the POWERSTATE brushless motor, REDLITHIUM battery pack, and REDLINK PLUS intelligence. The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor pushes this router to generate the same power as corded 1.25 horsepower routers** and a best-in-class 31,000 RPM to ensure the speed and power to make clean, precise cuts in hard materials. A variable-speed dial allows users to adjust the speed between 10,000 and 31,000 RPM to choose the best control for the application at hand.

When equipped with Milwaukee’s M18 REDLITHIUM XC5.0 Battery, the router can power through up to 250 ft of 3/8” round overs in red oak, eliminating frequent trips to the charger or the hassle of cords. In addition, the REDLINK PLUS Intelligence package ensures maximum performance of the tool under load and prevents against overload and overheat.

The router is designed with an array of additional features to improve the user experience including: a micro-adjust dial and macro-adjust button for fast, accurate depth adjustments during highly accurate work, a sturdy 4” sub-base plate for stability, and dual-LED lights to illuminate the work surface.

Milwaukee is committed to improving productivity by providing performance-driven and trade-focused solutions so users can perform an entire day’s work on one battery system. The new M18 FUEL Compact Router is fully compatible with the entire M18 line, now offering more than 200 power tool products.

*M18 FUEL is engineered for the most demanding tradesmen in the world. Delivering unrivaled performance, all M18 FUEL products feature three Milwaukee-exclusive innovations—The POWERSTATE Brushless Motor, REDLITHIUM Battery Pack and REDLINK PLUS Intelligence Hardware and Software—that deliver unmatched power, run-time and durability on the jobsite. Simply put, M18 FUEL tools are the most powerful 18V cordless tools in their class.
