Triton 3-1/4 HP Dual-Mode Plunge Router
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.
- Fully enclosed plastic shielding provides maximum protection from chips, and aids in dust collection

You have to raise it to lock the spindle. Other than impact, I have had this as my table router for about a year. I have used other 2.5 to 3.25 HP routers in this table over the years and hands down, this is the best. I really like the spindle lock / single wrench change, the very gentle height adjustment with the removable crank and the constant torque throughout the speed range. Hope that helps. Pete
Otherwise you would have difficulty using it easily when installed into a table, especially one with a closed cabinet below.
I made a table top for mine, but no room in my small shop. I carrry be table top outside and place on two sawhorses. Then insert my Triton and it works splendidly. I use an external switch for convenience and I never have to reach underneath to turn it on or off.
It does come with a wrench which did not come with the original shipment. I had to call up and ask for it.
Performance has been good, but I've only used it with the table.
All said, I love this router. I own an older 3hp Makita plunge, with square base (that I love), but I bought this one to do things the Makita wouldn't do since I didn't buy the 'attachments' for it when I bought the router--now they were unavailable. Hindsight is always better!
