Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I needed a router for a table operation and wanted something that could handle the tough times and the easy side. I did my research and the 2-1/4 hp turned out to be the answer. POWER WHEN NEEDED AND RIGHT SPEED FOR THE SOFTER TOUCH. Hopefully this will pass on to my son. If not I WILL BUY ANOTHER IF NEEDED!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Router has power to spare I've been using my Milwaukee Router for only a few weeks. Using a Lock-Miter bit, it cuts through without bogging down, even through knots. Height adjustment as well as bit changes are a snap. I can't wait to use the Rail/Stile bit when I get to build my Cabinets. October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compact and powerful A perfect mid size/power combination. Ran smoothly and didn't bog down during two days of pattern routing on a table. February 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well built for a serious first time user Position and feel of handles and location of start button are ergonomic. I really like the variable speed power. Simple to adjust height / depth controls. I bought the exact bits I needed, and spent about $20 on each for good ones. Overall my project was a success because of the tool, and Milwaukee came highly recommended. January 28, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the wait I ordered this router on line because my local Home Depot does not carry it. I received it in less time then I thought and it was well worth the wait. I use it mostly in my router table and it is very easy to make adjustments with it. It is powerful whether you are a DIY or a Pro. I highly recommend it! October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good router switch has to be replaced. I think it's a very good router I own 3 May 21, 2013
