The Milwaukee Fixed-Base Production Router has a powerful 15 amp, 3-1/2 max hp EVS motor. For a consistent, quality finish when using the tool, you have the ability to precisely match the tool's RPM to the bit diameter using the 36-position speed dial. For controlled startups and reduced motor wear, the router features a reliable electronic soft start. It also has an exclusive linear height adjustment system with above-the-table access for fast and precise coarse adjustments to within 1/8 in. and 1/64 in. for micro adjustments. Being above the table eliminates the need for awkward, inconvenient adjustments, or an auxiliary router lift.

  • Includes a 3-1/2 max hp fixed-base production router, two 1-1/8 in. collet wrenches, 1/2 in. collet, T-handle wrench and 2-1/2 in. sub-base
  • Electronic variable speed of 10,000-22,000 RPM
  • Premium electronic feedback circuitry that maintains speed and power under load
  • Industry-standard bolt-hole pattern and router base diameter, along with removable handles for insert plate clearance
  • Readily converts any existing table or production jig setup
  • Unique motor contamination shield that keeps damaging debris out without sacrificing airflow
  • Durable, rubber shield for dust-free access to the height adjustment system
  • UL, CSA and ETL listed
  • 5-year limited manufacturer warranty

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superlative Router Combo Just Installed my new Milwaukee 5625l-20 into my new Incra Router lift. The pair are an awesome combination. After a little fine tuning, I can report they perform up and even exceed expectations. I have reduced setup time and production time and increased the accuracy of my cuts. I highly recommend both products. The Home Depot price for the router is the best around! May 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simply the best router on the market I own a professional cabinet shop and have used several other routers including dewalt and porter cable in the past. I have found this Milwaukee router to bee the best that I have ever seen. It simply works. It does not come with a 1/4" collet because it was not ment for light duty work.1/4" collet's can be easily purchased either from Home Depot or straight from Millwauke. I plan too purchase another one to replace my old shaper. Millwaukee is a first class manufacture all the way. December 11, 2006
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A powerhouse router This has everything you need to handle routing projects that require more HP and variable speed. I already had a trim router so this Milwaukee is a perfect complement to handle all of my routing needs. This router is large so I recommend you mount it in a router table. Overall very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router, excellent quality I love it! the router is very sturdy and the slow start makes it easy to handle. It seems very well built, and was priced affordably. I haven't had it all that long (3 weeks) but so far it has been really nice. April 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Router I use this router daily, making raised-panel doors and many types of cabinetry. It just runs and works well, accurate cuts. It has an overload protector circuit that shuts it off if it begins to big down. A sinple off-and-back on is all that is needed to resume work. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great router with a lot of extras built in. This is a router that can tackle any job in the shop that requires a full sized router. The weight and power of the router make it more useful in a router table which it is built for. However, there are no router plates on the market that allow you to make use of the above the table raising or lowering. I decided to use a Woodpeckers plate and I drilled an additional 3/4 inch hole for access to the raising. I still have to unlock the router from below but it is much easier to set the height of the cut from above. This is in place of spending several hundred more dollars for a good lift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, sturdy router I bought this router to replace another of the same model that stopped working after 5 years. I was satisfied with the performance but wish it would have lasted longer. I may still send the other router away to see if it can be repaired and use it as a backup. December 10, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely No Accessories I purchased this router and found that Home Depot does not carry any of the Milwaukee accessories for it (even if they were in stock elsewhere). I've had to order them through a third party website and it's taking weeks to get parts for it. It's a good router, but without collets and a sub base it's useless at the moment. Milwaukee says they are backordered for all the parts, which is even more frustrating. I have found no universal bases that fit it, at Home Depot or anywhere else. October 28, 2014
