brush less gives about 40% more power
they are also lower geared [not direct drive] than say the ryobi which is 29000 compared to 13000 so more power but say half the feed rate for quality off cut

I hear what you’re saying BA but tbh cordless routers are limited unless they are running a big high amp battery which then makes them top heavy. As soon as the battery isn’t running at full capacity then the quality of cut isn’t great as the battery just can’t produce the required rpm in heavy timber.
Corded is still the way to go IMO as on site you need dust extraction which when running a router needs mains power which makes the whole idea of cordless pointless.

The dewalt cordless routers I’ve seen to date are a fusion of the corded router and cutout tool,it’s a bootleg that can run off the 54v batteries. Apparently dewalt will have an official version within a year.

i have several old 18v ryobi p600s all set up with round overs/round overs with querks bevels etc with no more than say 7x7mm rebate as a maximum load
i have several mains and router table set ups for the heavier cutting but would love a decent cordless router as even though 90% off my work is within 6ft off a socket i just love the throw down[with love] pick up and don't worry off no cables :lol:

You can buy a makita 18v brushless router and run it off dewalt batteries via an adapter.

I've got to agree with that. The big money needed to develop these tools together with the expected niche user base means that cordless will probably be restricted to trimmers (as opposed to routers) and trade sector until they can get a far larger capacity and lighter battery pack than at present (imagine the size and weight of a Festool OF2200e that could run for, say, 1 hour on worktop joints :shock: ). .

I've recently tried the Makita. Got enough power for laminate trimming, light edge profiling and hinge recessing but that's about it. Battery seems to give reasonable life, but they do bog down after three or so sets of door hinges (on 5Ah batteries). Useful lock-out so that if the battery is removed but the tool is left switched on you need to switch off and back on again, I found it a tad top heavy for my liking and the battery did get in the way a bit. The dust extraction is, like the corded models, less than stellar in performance. 50/50 about whether I'll buy one - it depends on the work I'm doing (so a decision much like that of buying a cordless planer)
