Overview

With its awesome power and suite of unique, user-friendly adjustments, the Triton TRA001 Dual-Mode Plunge Router more than deserves the praise it's been getting. Depth adjustments are a breeze with the unique "winder handle" - just squeeze the router's handle and turn to raise or lower, then use the micro-adjustment knob to dial in the final setting. You can also turn a dial to use the standard free-plunge adjustment. A turret system allows you to dial in two preset settings. Soft-start variable speed motor provides smooth, even power regardless of load. Bit changes are easy, one-wrench affairs - the spindle lock automatically engages when the spindle is extended past the faceplate - no more skinned knuckles juggling two wrenches inside the base. Whether in fixed mode or plunge mode, table-mounted or freehand, the Triton Dual-Mode Plunge Router will be a pleasure to use. It even includes a multi-function fence that serves as an edge guide, a circle cutter, and an oversized base.

  • 2400 watts, 3-1/4 HP.

Love it

Brian Posted December 17, 2014
I use it mostly mounted it works great.

This is THE table router of choice

Thomas Posted September 29, 2014
Recently replaced my Bosch and router lift with this rugged and versatile table mount router. I like my 1617s and think the Triton is a bit too heavy for free hand use (I'm an old guy). But in the table, I have come to love this machine. The fit and finish are great, the built in lift for adjusting height from the top, the ruggedness of the unit, the ease of changing bits, the precise way it holds the bit height, the great dust collection...some engineer/woodworker designed this because it could not be a better table machine. Get it first. Don't mess with a lift. And its 3.25 hp so it will plow through anything you want to make, such as doors.

This router is a beast! More...

Tom W from New Hartford, NY Posted December 17, 2012
This router is a beast! More than enougjh power to swing the large diameter cutters for cutting cabinate panels. The variable speed allows for the reduced RPM's needed for these tools without losing torque. The size of the unit makes it more suited for a router table than for hand held work, although, with practice, it becomes more comfortable. The base does not accept standard bushings, so I'll need to find another base plate that is also thicker, since this one is rather flimsy. Overall a really nice, well designed router at a fair price.
