This is the first true router to bear the Ridgid name. A trim router was introduced about one year ago, but this is the one we’ve been waiting for. And for a first router this dual-base model, well … shines!

First off, this router performs well. The 12-amp motor with electronic feedback provides plenty of power. I tested edge profiles and 3/4″-x 1/2″-deep groove cuts in a single pass in white oak with no problems. The motor’s soft start provides a pleasant and safe experience, and the noise level isn’t unpleasant, either.
