Default Milwaukee 5616-20

I saw a local Craigslist ad for a Milwaukee 5616-20 router for $75. Is this a good price and will it be suitable for table routing?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Good tool if it wasn't abused. Price good too but with freight maybe not such a good deal compared to new.
Table routing ok if the cuts are <~3/8 x 3/8 max/pass.

That's what I use for table purposes. The power is adequate. I never use the humongous panel raiser bits. For that you might want a 3hp unit. The soft start feature really helps.
