No but I'd imagine the batteries wouldn't last too long if they did

I am thinking of buying the Makita one which I have used before it's a great piece of kit but I am a Dewalt man.

this thread is a little old, so you may have resolved , but a cordless router is due out around March I think as FFX emailed me round xmas to pre-order April 2019
https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Dew ... gKVzfD_BwE

I was going to wait, but decided to get the DW625 corded last week.

Quite a difference, there. Transit vs. Ka van

Thanks for the reply, Yea, looked into it , and just because the router was cordless was not really a reason, and so as i got deeper into it , I wanted to make sure the first few jobs didn't need a transit and all I had was a Ka
So i'm hoping this will cover all i want to ever do , and possible maybe a bit harder to use
so I will be making a gate in Feb, and so will possibly use the router to construct some of that

The DW625 is a good heavyweight router. I've used them (and the predecessor Elu 177e) for years. They are a bit on the big side if you want to do hinge recesses and the like, though
