Hi Steve. I have had my Triton 2 1/4 for about a year now and it is a great machine. It was built specificaly for mounting on a table so it allows for above table bit changes and has a safety lock switch that lights up when power is present (very handy). These are just two of the many excellent features and to make a long story short... I couldn't be more pleased with it. As for comparison to the 890 some one else will have to help out there. I don't have one of those.
