I have the Bosch and love it. The power switch is not well thought out but versitle machine overall and on sale is a good deal.

Mark, do you have any issues with the build quality of the Triton? For the record, I only saw a couple of user reviews that complained about it and to be fair, there were some quality issues on the Milwaukee's, Dewalt's and Bosch as well. I'm somewhat leary about Bosch electrics, I've heard a disproportionate number of complaints about their motors crapping out in some of their tools(esp drills). I can get the Triton for under $200 CN which is pretty good considering the features and extras they supply with the kit, though it is also a dedicated plunger. Speaking of D-handles, Dewalt has a kit for the 2 1/4hp DW618 that gives you all 3 bases...plunge, fixed and D-handle which might be worth looking at. I too, am interested in the D-handle because of the switch location and I believe the unit would be easier to control in many situations.

Mark, your PC is a 1 3/4hp is it not? how do you find the power vs your 2 1/4 triton. I've noticed that some 2 1/4hp routers by companies such as Hitachi are only 11 amps where some of the others are 12-13 amps. Also, Milwaukee's 1 3/4 is rated at 11 amps, same as the Hitachi 2 1/4!!

Amazon $$ on the Milwaukee (1 3/4hp)dropped today....hmmmmm

Hi Charles, did you get the plunge/fixed kit on your Bosch?

Yep. Very quiet. Don't use as much as I would like, but very happy with quality of motor and number of third party acc avail.

The Bosch 1617EVSPK with both bases and bonus pack is $199 on Amazon at the moment.

I specifically wanted the 1 3/4HP PC for handheld use, while the Triton is specifically for table use. Because of that, I've never really done a direct comparison between the two. The bigger bits have been used in the table / Triton only. While the smaller / simpler bits are used in both, the smaller bits don't do much to test the routers' capabilities either for me to compare.

I haven't had any issues at all with the Triton, but in all fairness, when it only sits in the table and only gets turned on once every few weeks, I haven't exactly pushed its' limits either.

When I was shopping for the Triton, though, I wasn't seeing anything particularly negative about the router... (though Amazon reviews show that every router has some detractors).

Many of the "reviews" on Amazon should be taken with a grain of salt no doubt.

I was seriously wanting the Milwaukee 5616-24 except one of the reviewers questioned the repeatability of the plunger, specifically that the motor wasn't clamped too well and was moving under load when plunging. I'm wondering if the cutter was actually pulling out of the collet on him: saw this problem when I used to work in the machine shop alot, if you weren't using a side lock on the tool holders(ie using a collet instead). The Bosch is a good deal and has a lot of extras with it, but why are they only offering a 1 yr warranty? what's wid dat? everyone else is 3-5 yrs.
