Not worth the money

published

I use Triton tools, but this router was a disappointment. The machine broke down during a lengthy session of woodworking. The replacement cost was so high that it was cheaper to purchase a new router, which I did and couldn’t really see the difference in performance. I still love other Triton products, just not their router.

Rubbish

Don't ever buy Triton tools as their piece of crap rubbish garbage they cut out on you and the company is not in Australia and you can't find any parts for it .if you do buy one put it in the bin if it doesn't work that's all it's good for

Good features but unreliable

published

My router is 6 years old. I have had problems with the electronics. The speed sometimes varies, and it occasionally just gives up the ghost, half way through a session, and won't switch on. The switch is illuminated, but it won't fire up. Then, if I remove it from the table, jiggle it about and try it one last time before I bin the bloody thing, it'll fire up again - until the next time. I've only kept it because it works so well with the Triton Router Table, but I'm going to chuck the whole lot out next time this happens, and start again.

I'm not 100% sure but i think so. I would suggest posting your question to somewhere like woodworkforums.com.au as they have a dedicated section for triton and routers also, you will find people on there that own one or the other or both. Good Luck.

If you are spending 300+ on a router i would suggest going with a Makita or Hitachi. My Triton is now starting to exhibit the same issues that i had fixed the first time, not going to bother fixing it again. I believe the Mk3 uses a universal plate mounting system for the router so you should be able to fit almost any make to it. If not then tables are easy to make from MDF if necessary
