Default Triton TrB001 and TRA001

Hello all,
I have just dropped by here for some information, can someone tell me what the difference is between these machines as I would like to buy my husband one of them, Triton TrB001 and TRA001?
Are they the same machine, do they do these both with 2400watt motors...I would like to know which is the better machine to buy if I can get hold of one? So sorry if these are dumb questions and have been asked before.
Happy Woodworking Everyone.
I Would appreciate your feed backs.
Susie

Welcome to the forum Susie, I have in front of me the last catalogue issued by Triton before they went broke last year, it's dated 2008/2009. Only one 2400watt router is listed, the TRA001. The TRB001 as shown on several sites in the UK is a 2000 watt version. Also on the internet I saw two sites that claimed to once again have all parts for the TRB001 and circular saw. I just spoke to a guy from the local listed service centre for Triton and he was not aware of Triton being re-introduced in Australia.
As a matter of interest, I consider the TRA001 to be about the best router for use in the table, but I have a very low opinion of it for hand held plunge routing, for this I use the Makita 3612C.

According to the Australian forum, the lack of availability of them there is currently pushing the price of second hand TRA001s up to double the price that new ones are available for off UK eBay, where some dealers still have them in stock.

I've just spoken to Sharpend in the Uk who say they are regularly sending Routers to Oz. They have both Routers in stock. The bummer is it's 90 UKP for shipping.
This may still be a good deal though as new ones are apparently very difficult to obtain in Australia.
He was quite upbeat. He says there is new production of some lines coming through already, with the promise of more in a month.

Thank you all for your warm welcome and for all your trouble in looking around for me. I think if I can get hold of a 2400watt motor I'll get that one, if not, not sure.
Umm, I shall sort out my profile if I can figure that out.....

Thanks Harry. I must have missed something when I copy pasted.

Thank you all, am now awaiting the Triton TRB001 for my husband, there is a TRA001 on ebay, but the price is far too high for my liking.
I did not have any problems with the links above I just removed everything after the .com....
