Triton 3.25hp

The new Triton 3.25HP router motor features a classic design and the same diameter as the discontinued Porter Cable 7518. It's the perfect motor for router table lifts and offers no-frills power and performance, all day, every day. Triton’s heavy duty TFBR001MOTOR is a 3.25HP router motor that powers through the most demanding lift-mounted tasks, including raising panels, routing stiles and rails and applying larger roundovers and other edge profiles. Mount the motor in the Rockler Pro Lift (sold separately), for easy height adjustments and bit changes. Old school design promises rugged reliability.
