post-hitachirouter.jpgHitachi 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.

One Response to Hitachi Koki’s New Plunge Router Line

  1. I just picked up one of these (and hurt my back!Ah) they are heavy!
    I got one to use in a router table. I already owned the tr12 and enjoyed its power and heaft but it was missing to many important features to use in a router table, such as vareable speed and a good hight adjustment system.
    All these issues apear to be addresed in the m12.
