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.

Customer Reviews

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 Absolutely worth it I have always been a Milwaukee fan and this router set places the bar high. It's powerful, has adjustable speeds for the bit, comfortable grips, and is durable like all Milwaukee products. The dust collector could be better, obstructs your view and can be cumbersome trying to maneuver it with a hose attatched but thats probably true for any router. When you're using it on a router table with dedicated dust collection it shouldn't be an issue. The case is built well, the coarse and fine adjustments for the bit depth are very fluid, and the two different collets included are a perk. Love this router set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but... Great plunge action. Great motor. The palm grip and fixed base are nice. Compared to other 2 1/4hp routers (Bosch mrc23, DeWalt 618) the soft start is far more abrupt. Also, when compared to the mentioned routers the on/off switch is difficult to reach. I liked the case. It has preformed holes for 1/4 and 1/2 bits as well as the Milwaukee accessories. Overall, a very nice router that ultimately wasnot quite right for me.

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.
