The new DRT50 is also incredibly versatile and is available to purchase in two different collet sizes, a ⅜” and a ¼”. The alternative bases that have been released for the new combination tool offers the user a 0-40mm plunge capacity with use of the trimmer base and a 0-35mm capacity with a plunge base fitted onto the new cordless Router and trimmer.

This new Makita product can be fitted into the alternative bases and then retained with an easy and efficient base lock system.
