By the look of the box, it is not brand new.....Makita stopped making this model years ago.

I have one, and find it useful for a fixed speed router.

An older style router, but I have had one for many years without a problem. I got min along with a Triton table at a garage sale for a BARGAIN price, so I don't know how much they are worth now, but it is a great router. One speed only, but still good for me.

The box is kind of beat up but actually everything is still sealed inside, which I was surprised. It appears to be a 240v, the plug is different. I have no idea about these. I have no way of using it because of the plug, I'm just looking to sell it

Could be made for the European market, which would explain the plug difference. I think that is why the box has all the different languages. It would also explain why it was never used. I think you could use it here, if you just spliced a plug on it. It might shorten the life of it slightly, but otherwise it is a paper weight.

That is what I was thinking, at least it was a very inexpensive paperweight...
