Hitachi Power Tools Introduces a Single Speed Combo Router Kit
Toronto, ON., December 14, 2004 – Hitachi Power Tools today announced its new single speed Router kit, the KM12SC. This ergonomically designed kit comes with both a plunge and fixed base attachment. The bases attach easily to the motor facilitating quick changes, adding flexibility and delivering smooth results to accomplish any fine routing application.
The KM12SC is the follow-up to the KM12VC (variable speed kit) that was released in September, 2004. Both are designed for precise groove cutting, chamfering, trimming, shaping and pattern cutting. The compact motor transitions between the fixed and plunge bases effortlessly thanks to the tool-less release clamp. This 2-stage clamp allows fine depth adjustments to be made quickly and easily, ensuring precise and reliable cuts every time.
The 11 Amp, 2-1/4 HP motor routs clean lines through all types of wood with control and precision. The powerful motor has the lowest noise level in its class (only 79.5 dB). Less noise improves workplace environment and reduces vibration that can ultimately effect workmanship. Electronic speed control maintains constant RPMs even as load varies. The nickel-plated motor guarantees smooth adjustment of the cutting depth, while additionally reducing scratches and stains. It comes with ½” and ¼” collets for maximum bit options.
The new router kit reflects the aggressive new ergonomic design being implemented by Hitachi Power Tools. Hitachi is pioneering yet another new trend in the industry- tools that incorporate the latest technology with ergonomic design- a look that will modernize the traditional workshop or jobsite.
Hitachi’s KM12SC comes complete with ½” & ¼” collet chucks, wrenches, 7 template guides, template guide adapter, template guide centering adjuster, chip shield and carrying case. It is the ideal router for woodworkers and carpenters, who demand precision and reliability. A ½” Fixed Base, Single & Constant Speed Router is also available independently (M12SC) as well as a ½” Fixed Base, Variable & Constant Speed Router (M12VC).
