Ok, I've read the reviews and they all seem positive, so why is it that the Tritons that I've gone through have failed me so?Based on the FWW review, I ordered the Triton 2-1/4" router and built a table around it. Now, this is far from my first router. My first router is still in regular use in my shop. It's a Rockwell 690 I bought in the late '70s. I have two other Porter Cable 690's, a PC 7539 3-1/4hp, and a Rigid EVS 2-1/4hp. I tried the PC 893 2-1/4hp, but didn't like that one either.First, let me say that Triton's customer service sets the standard in my book. If you ever need them, ask for Adam.MY FIRST TRITONThe first one delivered to me operated well for a few test passes after I installed it in my new table. There was a slight vibration, but that didn't seem to affect the cut. Then, when I finally got around to using it for an actual project, the worm gear for the router lift stripped. Triton's customer service guys immediately recognized the problem via my phone call to them and admitted there were a few machines with an apparently defective part. They were currently out of that part and would send one to me ASAP.Six weeks later, I got my part. During the installation, I noticed flaking chips on each of the armature brushes. When I called Triton to order new brushes, I was told that was a sign the armature was bent. They sent me a replacement router within 10 days.MY SECOND TRITONInstalled in my table with a 2" straight bit, it vibrated so wildly I dove for cover while reaching to rip the power cord from the socket. Triton was amazed by this coincidence. Imagine two defective routers in a row! Who'd a thunk it?!?MY THIRD TRITONBEFORE plugging this one in, I installed aforementioned 2" straight bit and TURNED THE ROUTER BY HAND. This one ran true. However, I had already finished my projects and had to attend to my real job. A couple of months later while attempting to complete my wife's Christmas present, I got the opportunity to use the router. After about 30 feet of a tiny walnut molding, the worm gear for the lift failed during a bit change. No, I did attempt to break the world record for the 2-1/4hp router toss, but I did threaten to make a fancy little mobile using that and the other two Triton's that were sitting in my shop rest room. Adam at Triton was very understanding and apologetic. He even upgraded me, sending me...MY FOURTH TRITONThe hefty big brother to the 2-1/4" 2-1/4hp is the 3-1/4hp Triton plunge router. Happily, it mounts with the very same hole pattern as the baby brother and accepts the vacuum hose in the same manner. It runs.So, it's been a year and I've managed to run a 1/4" round-over bit 30ft on walnut. I've finished my projects and haven't yet started on another, so I have no idea how the new Triton will perform. Yet, there is a silver lining. In my frustration, I purchased the Porter Cable 893 to install on the table. This router bogs down much too easily. I returned this router (I was very short of patience with routers by then) and bought the Ridgid 2-1/4hp router. THIS IS A VERY NICE ROUTER. I still run this router as my main table router. Bit changing is a snap from above or reaching below. The soft start is really a soft start. It never bogs down, it never gets hot. If Triton would give my money back, I'd buy another Ridgid (or experiment with the Freud or Milwaukee). If this last Triton fails me, then I'll try one of those. Then I'll either make that mobile or a really cool set of funny orange bookends for my shop reference books.
