Looking for a powerfull router to route cabinet doors and interior doors. Router handles all the bits with no bog down that causes wood to burn. Easy to adjust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chipster Excellent for router table use
I mounted the Milwaukee 3.5 Hp motor to an Incra Master-Lift-II and have used it to swing a 3-1/2 inch raised panel bit. It cut the cherry panel with ease. I chose the Milwaukee over its main competitor (PC) due to its lower noise level. The motor is smooth and appears extremely well built. The variable speed control works great. I have not used the depth adjustment built into the Milwaukee because it is mounted on an Incra Lift so I cant comment on it. This is a very heavy router made for production. For occasional hand routing jobs it might be a bit much, but it is outstanding for table use. It puts a smile on my face every time I use it!

We received the router and it will not work. Called customer service and they said return it or bring it to a service center.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick 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.

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.
