Serious Tool
This is the best fixed base router I've ever used. It feels just right, runs smooth and vibration free. Adjustment is straightforward and easy, works great in a router table. Although not an inexpensive tool, you get what you pay for. The case is great for organization and storage. I purchased mine from CPO as reconditioned. It looks like new, not a scratch or blemish on it.

Milwaukee tools ROCK!!!
I use the tools quite a bit. My Son uses them a lot more, they are like an extra arm, for him. He loves tools, like a long lost Love. We've had a great time testing all the tools we've bought over the years. We had no problems with the Router. The Variable speed is something we've never experienced before. COOl!! Haven't found anything we didn't like yet. Seems to be a Great tool. Keep up the Great Work !!!

Very good equipment at a great price
Depth control setting of the bit took some time and trails to get used to. I like having a clutch lock on a router and this doesn't have one but overall a good piece of equipment.

Good purchase
Tyler Tool delivered the tool quickly and it was priced well. I use routers in the shop but also on project sites primarily doing round over and mortise work. The one-hand grip was what attracted me to this router as project field site setups vary.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
