Cordless Routers and Trimmers

With no power cable or power outlets to worry about, cordless routers offer the convenience of portability. Sometimes referred to as a trimmer, routers are used for intricate woodwork and metalwork, as well as for hollowing out wood. They are also typically more lightweight and compact in size compared to corded routers. Ideal for edging and creating decorative features, our cordless routers come with a range of useful functions and settings, including adjustable speeds for improved accuracy, adjustable depth settings, and adjustable base plates. Most of our cordless routers are powered by lithium-ion batteries, which are lightweight and provide long run times.

Whether you're a professional tradesman or working on woodworking projects at home, our wide range of cordless trim routers will help you get the job done quickly and accurately. Get the power, performance, and reliability you need with our selection of cordless routers from leading tool manufacturers including Hikoki, DeWalt, Trend and Makita.

Cordless Routers and Trimmers

Cordless Router Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cordless router used for?

A cordless router is a versatile power tool that can be used for a wide range of applications. They are commonly used for a variety of woodworking and carpentry tasks, like routing out wood, creating tight-fitting joints, and creating intricate designs, including grooves, rabbets, dadoes, and mortises. Routers are often used for home improvement projects, furniture making, and model-making ¬– making the cordless router a great tool for both professional tradesman and DIYers. Routers can also be used to quickly and accurately cut and shape plastic, metal, and other materials.

Cordless routers are powered by battery and do not require a trailing power lead or access to a power outlet. This makes them especially useful for people who would like the convenience and flexibility of moving freely around the jobsite or the workshop. They are ideal for users who need to make quick adjustments to their work, as cordless routers can be quickly adjusted as required. They are typically used with a template guide to ensure precise cuts.

What is the difference between a router and a router trimmer?

A router and a router trimmer are both tools used to shape, cut, and finish wood or other materials. The primary difference between these two tools is the size of the bit used in the tool. A router is a larger tool, usually with a motor and a base plate. It can accept larger bits, which are ideal for cutting out deep grooves, dados, and mortises. The size of the bit determines the size of the cut, so a router can make very deep cuts. It is also used for making decorative edges and rounding off edges. A router trimmer is a smaller tool, with a handheld motor and a smaller base plate. It takes very small bits, which are ideal for precision trimming of wood and other materials. A router trimmer is used to trim the edges of wood, plastic, and other materials with high precision. It is also used to make very small inlays and engravings. Both tools are an essential part of any woodworker's toolkit.

Is a cordless router worth buying?

A cordless router power tool is an invaluable tool whether you’re a DIY enthusiast, a professional contractor, or a carpenter. Not only are they convenient and easy to use, but they also offer you a variety of features to make completing tasks faster and easier. With a cordless router, you can easily make precise cuts and grooves in wood, plastic, and other materials, as well as create intricate designs and detailed carvings. A cordless router is worth buying if you plan to do a lot of woodworking.

With its cordless design, you’ll have the freedom to move around the workshop or the jobsite and get into hard-to-reach places without having to worry about getting tangled in a cord.
