Pros. and Cons. on both models of the Triton,,,But if you don't have the HP you can't use it when you need it ,,,to get over changing the bit from the top side a offset wrench will take care of that one quick..a 14.oo dollar item...not to bad of a price to pay to have one more horse power when you need it..for the BIG panel bits etc.
as for the edge guide for the router when was the last time you used one,then for the brass guides should fit in the drop in base plate in the router table...if not you can make a quick one like I did by using one from a Portel Cable base plate to fit your new table...(CMT table top ) or make one to fit the Oak-Park type brass guides in about 10 mins or less..
Power,,,I have 5ea. 3 1/4hp routers and I have only poped the breaker one time.
As you know all the wall outlets are setup on a 20amp. breaker the norm,the only time the routers will pull the 15amp. will be at startup and under full load,,that maybe why they made most with a soft start mode,,,most shops are loaded up with plugs going to the wall outlets but you are only use one tool at a time the norm...if you have a vac.system setup to come on when the router comes on like I do you can always hold it back just a bit until the router is up and running and again it's a start up load thing...
I use a remote control unit to hold the Vac. back just a bit ..
But this is just my 2 cents
