This ergonomically designed router is an upgraded version of Hitachi’s established M12V that has been selling for 17 years. The newly redesigned model offers a powerful 1570 or 2000 watt motor that delivers top of class cutting speed to rout through hardwoods with ease, a variable speed dial on the handle for easy speed adjustments and a quick & fine adjustment knob that combines both functionalities without the need for accessories. Designed for impressively smooth groove cutting, chamfering, window cutting, trimming, shaping and pattern cutting, the M12V2 does it all.
This plunge router features a soft start motor that produces 3-1/4 peak HP while reducing torque during start up. The unique structure of the router’s armature and fan allow it to achieve class leading cutting speed for ultra smooth cuts through hardwoods. Equipped with an electronic variable speed dial, the M12V2 produces 8,000 - 22,000 RPMs for a wider range of cutting applications through a wider range of materials.
The variable speed dial is conveniently located on the handle so that the user can finely adjust the rotation speed without removing their hand from the tool or eyes from the work piece.The M12V2 easily converts to table use. The operator can detach a spring from inside one of the columns that normally assists the movement of the housing during plunge operation. Once installed in a table withoutthe spring, the load of movement of the main body is light and is easy to slide.
Bits can also be easily changed from a table mounting. This router is constructed so the collet chuck protrudes approximately 6mm from the upper side of the table. Because of this design, the bit can be easily replaced.
The M12V2 comes equipped with an improved collet chuck that secures the bit into the armature shaft for maximum hold. A new feature of the M12V2 is a dust guide that diverts dust and debris away from the work piece and user. The material is directed in a consistent direction and can be hooked up to a shop vac if desired.
