A lightweight direct-drive router that behaves like stone routers twice its cost. At 2HP this router doesn't slow down when grinding like the regular Red Ripper Ultralight Stone Router! That said, it's not for polishing either: this is a pure edge shaping machine. Weighing in at only 22 lbs, you can easily pick up this router with one hand! It is built for profiling sinks and edges, and is perfect for pre-fabs.
Powered by the super strong and durable Makita GA7040S grinder, you'll have no prolems shaping even larger edges.
The built-in hydroplaning base helps the router move smoothly over the surface of the stone without scratching. Works on both natural and engineered stone. While the router is light, it is no lightweight when it comes to the size of bits it can use - almost all standard 7/8 bore with M10-1.5 bolt router bits will fit and be usable, including all common 2, 3, and 4cm bits. We've even seen guys swing larger bits, but that can cause the machine to become unbalanced, requiring a weight in the back to level things back out again!
Product may not precisely match images. We are constantly working on each of our products to find better designs, and we ship each new machine with the best design we have at that time.
