Milwaukee Router 5616-21 Review Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I want to talk a little bit about routers, specifically about a high performance and heavy duty routers. This is a Milwaukee router and it is a beefy boy.
It has 2-1/4 horspower, 13-amps and it goes from 10,000 to 24,000 rpms, variable speed. It has both a 1/4" and 1/2" collet. The casing has a soft grip. The router features a soft start so it doesn't jerk when you power it up.
This unit has an onboard computer-circuitry that will adjust its power load so that is it cutting at its maximum if you encounter some tough spots in your material. All this is done automatically.
Be sure when you are buying a router be sure to get a router that is big enough for your job. If you are doing a lot of routing, get one with lots of horsepower.
