Hitachi Koki recently released a new line of plunge routers all featuring a unique new design. According to Hitachi:
Thanks to the Hitachi’s unique design, the inertia moment of the armature — that is an element for increasing the cutting efficiency — is increased and top-in-class cutting speed is obtained.
Ok, we worked that over a little bit as it was clearly mechanically translated from another language. Trust us, the meaning is the same.
New models in the line include the M12V2 (1/2″ w/variable speed), the M12SA2 (1/2″ single speed), the M8V2 (1/4″ w/variable speed), and the M8SA2 (1/4″ single speed).
We can’t find street pricing yet for these units, but we’re going to bet they’re priced along the same lines as the current models.
