The OF 2200 is our most powerful router. It can easily plunge into 8/4 hard maple and make a 1/2″ groove in a single pass. With 2200 watts of power, you might think you are working with a portable shaper. Designed for exceptional maneuverability, the OF 2200 incorporates many new ergonomic design features, making it easy to control, and a pleasure to use on the jobsite or in the shop.
Includes 1/2″ collet only. 8mm and 1/4″ collets available separately.
This is the new imperial version of this tool. It is identical to the previous version with the exception of the units on the depth scale.
Dust Extraction Column
The Dust Extraction Column is placed on the back of the OF 2200 and extends to the top of the router and includes a swivel nozzle. A design which keeps the power cord (also top mounted) and dust extraction hose out of your way. Coupled with the Festool Boom Arm (492 753), work smarter and take full advantage of operation without being impeded by cords and hoses. Festool recommends using a 36mm hose.
Operating the OF 2200 could never be easier. Controls are clearly labeled with icons indicating purpose and adjustment direction. Work smarter without having to locate the manual to make less common adjustments. Use the onboard variable speed dial cross reference to select the appropriate spindle speed based on material and application. Sales and support numbers are also directly on the router for your convenience.
Magnetic Spindle Brake
The Magnetic Spindle Brake of the OF 2200 is a faster, more reliable method of retarding spindle motion. The use of magnetic force to stop the spindle also prolongs the service life of the motor versus a mechanical or electronic method.
Tremendous Plunge Depth Capacity
With 80mm of travel, the plunge depth of the OF 2200 is phenomenal. The collet actually plunges 10mm below the base of the router providing another option for bit changes. Use the micro-adjustment knob to fine tune plunge depth in increments of 1/256″ (1/10mm). The four position depth stop turret provides pre-configurable plunge depths including a 5/64″ (2mm) finishing pass setting.
Triple Bearing Design
The OF 2200 Router features a Triple Bearing Design which dampens spindle and bit deflection. With bearings at the top, middle and bottom, the spindle is less likely to wobble. This is particularly important considering the sheer power of the OF 2200 and the centrifugal forces exerted with spinning large bits at speeds up to 22,000 RPM.
Variable speed control
Use the Variable Speed Control of the OF 2200 to dial in the appropriate spindle speed based on the material and application. An onboard cross reference guide shows the spindle RPM for each setting. The OF 2200 employs Multi-Material Control (MMC) electronics to ensure constant speed under load. That means that the speed of the bit is constant as you plunge and move through the workpiece.
Locking Depth Stop Rod
The Locking Depth Stop Rod allows you save time by locking the OF 2200 in its plunged position and calibrate the plunge depth using the four-position depth stop turret in a single step. Dial the micro-adjustment knob in increments of 1/256″ (1/10mm) for the ultimate plunge depth precision.
Single-Tool Ratcheting Collet
Bit changes have never been easier. Use the spindle locking lever to disengage spindle movement and loosen the collet with a ratcheting motion. The ingenious retractable 360° dust shroud and wide plunge column spacing enables open access to the collet.
Retractable, Spring-Loaded 360º Dust Shroud
Work smarter with the Retractable, Spring-Loaded 360° Dust Shroud of the OF 2200. The shroud maximizes dust extraction while providing high visibility of the workpiece. Release the dust shroud using a release lever at your fingertips. The shroud retracts back into the locked position after the router is fully plunged.
The 1/2″ collet of the OF 2200 allows you to take full advantage of its 2200 Watts of power. With an opening of 3-3/8 on the standard base, the OF 2200 can take advantage of a full assortment of router bits.
