Questions & Answers

Confused about this model 5616-24 kit and the H-D description; why are there inconsistencies?

The description mentions a 1-3/4 hp and a 2-1/4 hp motor. Is it the 2-1/4 hp model? The description also mentions that there is no variable speed; however, "EVS" is variable speed. Does this model have a collet lock or does it require two wrenches?
Asked by: jimpg
The 5616-24 kit includes the 5616-20 router which is 2-1/4 HP, variable speed, comes with 2 wrenches, and requires both.

Does the micro-depth adjustment knob work on the plunge base or only the fixed base?

Asked by: Josh
Josh it does work on both. You can fine tune the depth in the fixed base which adjust the motor in the base. In the plunge base application it only adjusts the stop rod. What i have done for lets say making a sign. I'll do a quick pass on a letter check the depth and if need to be deeper I'll undo the stop rod lock knob with the adjustment knob I'll fine tune the cut. Or with the bit in the motor push the base down till the bit just kisses the work surface release the plunge lock lever, lock the stop rod in place use the 3" steel measure plate on the base to set the movable pointer and use the adjusting knob to set the depth desired. You can use the LDA, Linear Depth Adjustment in both bases.

Does this come with any bits?

Asked by: Rinati75
Rinati75 no. There are no bits included. The case does however have the ability to store bits, both 1/4" and 1/2" shank bits but there are none included.

2-1/4 Max-Horsepower EVS Multi-Base Router Kit with Plunge Base and BodyGrip Fixed Base is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The router bases were easily changed from std to Plunge.... The router bases were easily changed from std to Plunge. The unit has ample power for most routing tasks, and with the 1/4" and 1/2" collets I could use all of my existing router bits with this machine.

I was looking at 2 other brands and chose this Milwaukee for a few reasons. 1. The body grip. I use a trim router often and just by habit grab the router this way. This Body grip is very comfortable and holding the router this way give me a feeling of control with the router and better stability while routing edges. 2. The LDA Linear Depth Adjustment allows me do fine tune my cut with ultra fine adjustment. 3. The plunge-base literally float. It glides up and down with very little effort. It's like a finely crafted piece of machinery. The accessories includes a dust collection attachment, centering tool, 1/4" and 1/2" collets, T handle socket wrench if you mount the router in a router table and 2 wrenches to remove the collets or router bits. I've had this over a month and it has performs flawlessly. The 2 1/4 horse motor take anything thrown at it with power to spare. This is a 5 start router all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-designed, quality, and Heavy-Duty My very first router, but by no means my first Milwaukee power tool. I'd been using my father's Bosch 1617 EVS for over 10 years. My first impressions after using it is that it's a well-thought-out design. The on/off switch is in a very intuitive location that is like right there when you're done routing a piece of wood. The collets and spindle are very meaty--indicative of large bearings and heavy duty design. The supplied wrenches are over-kill thick and heavy-duty, unlike my dads Bosch which the wrenches are bent because they're too thin. I love the soft start and there's an easy breakdown chart of the speeds to number dial relation on the router itself so you know what's ideal for the application and don't have to go hunting for the owners manual. The case is awesome and has plenty of room for a router bit storage. This is probably one of the best investments my wife and I have ever made towards home improvement. I'm sure it will last many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love it Ok we all know Bosch Model # 1617EVSPK is well know to be a great router. I Owned it my self but did not last so I decided to try this Milwaukee.. Here is whats better from Milwaukee vs Bosh, Milwaukee: 1. Rubber grips 2. WAY better to remove from plunge and fix base. 3. A lot less vibration 4. Comes with a centering pin 5. The body grip,yea you have to try it to believe it. Here is whats better from Bosh Vs Milwaukee Bosh: 1. The plunge feels smother has less resistance. 2. Box it came with 3. Router Guide Options 4. Soft start My personal opinion, Milwaukee wins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed with my First Router The router feels comfortable and easy to handle with the Body Grip. Not nearly as loud as i had anticipated. The motor is easy to switch between bases and all the depth controls are easy to adjust and accurate. I look forward to seeing how it works when mounted in a table. Just another solidly-built tool by Milwaukee. And by the way, I disagree with others' comments about the case. It protects the tools well and who really cares about the size of cases? I had read and watched a ton of reviews online and was on the fence between this kit and Bosch's. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this router to all and have no regrets with my purchase.
