Ryobi ONE+ Palm Router Review

A Palm router is probably the 3rd or 4th most used tool in my arsenal. Number one, two, and three would be the table saw, miter saw, and sander. And then comes the palm router. After all the cutting, the palm router with a round-over bit or a trim bit are my bits of choice on almost 80% of my projects. So that’s why a battery powered covert router is important to me. Let’s check out why the Ryobi ONE+ Palm Router is my palm router of choice.

Make: RYOBI ONE+ 18V Palm Router

Model: P601

Weight: 2.8 LBS

RPM: 29,000

The micro adjustment for precision depth control takes all the guess work out of trial and error.

DRIPZONE over mold with micro texture is great for optimum grip, and the user comfort makes it easy to be in-charge.

The 29,000 RPM cutting capacity that attacks over 600 linear board feet per charge, while mounted to a Die-Cast base feels like driving a luxury sedan with a HEMI under the hood. This thing GOES!

The Ryobi ONE+ Trim Router features the Quick-Release lever for easy depth adjustment and base removal, making quick bit changes a breeze.

A high powered LED work surface light helps you keep an eye on what you’re doing and where you’re doing it. No more blowing sawdust out of the way to see what you’re doing.


I’ve used many palm routers, and I will say this: this one is well built and very well priced. Those things make this this trim router  an ABSOLUTE MUST in the workshop. It has the power, the stability, the precision, the convenience, the control, and the cost. What more could one ask for?
