The RP0900K features an 8 AMP motor with 27,000 RPM. It has a 0” – 1-3/8” plunge depth capacity for easy penetration into the work piece, with a plunge depth adjustment lever with three preset depth stops for added precision. The RP0900K is engineered with oversized ball bearing construction for longer tool life.  Ease-of-use features include a durable flat top design for added convenience when changing bits, easy-to-read depth scales, and rubberized contoured handles with built-in switch for better fit and control.


The RP0900K uses ¼” shank router bits, and is engineered for fine woodworking, cabinetry, furniture making, counter tops, decking, windows and doors, and general carpentry, and is especially suited for decorative routing applications. It is ideal for professional woodworkers, furniture makers, professional craftsmen, cabinet makers, deck builders, boat builders, and general contractors seeking a best in class 1-1/4 HP plunge router. The RP0900K is another example of Makita’s commitment to innovative technology and best in class engineering.
