I had one of those on a fixed base,and mounted on my Rockler router table, It was a powerful unit performed very well, I liked it because of the height adjustment was on top and when mounted under the table you could adjust the height from above the table with a key down thru the table top, also liked the cam lock on the base, All these features were new to routing at the time. I didn't use it freehand as I had other routers set up for that. Rockler didn't have a plate insert drilled for it so I got one for a PC and drilled it to match the Milwaukee. I had a PC 695 too so I could use that same table plate to mount the PC if I wanted to. I know you will like it. The outside case is weird looking but if you have big hands like I do ,it fits your hand comfortably.
Hope this Helps,
