Left mine in too so I could hook a hose to it.

However those two bolts for extra attachments that come up through the base? either ditch them or grind off the round head so it'll sit flush. I did the later so I wouldn't loose the bolts even though it'll probably never come off the plate

I left the dust collection on and am using it as my primary (seeing that I don't have a fence yet) it works ok I still get some saw dust in the cabinet as it is an open design. Maybe that will change when I get a fence with a DC port. I also left the black base on because of the attatchment pins being there, and the router still raises far enough above the table to lock the arbor. I've also removed the plunge spring and disengaged the anti arbor lock on the switch.

I use the dust collector in an open cabinet. I hooked it up with sump pump hose from Home Depot. It wasn't adequate I also have one in a closed cabinet with dust collection and removed it for air flow I get much better dust control

Hi Richard,

I have removed the dust port from my Triton TRA001 and use it in an Oak park table.

So far, I have not had any problems, but I use it outdoors.

I did remouve the part covering the moteor but I let in place the partcovering the base so I am connecting it with a 27mm Festool hose.

Works great

I removed mine, It makes it easier to get the wrench in to tighten the collet. That's a plus when you use matched cope and rail bits. And you don't want to mess with the height.The plastic guard makes it tight quarters to tighten the collet.

I left mine in place, and added a dust collection hose to it for those occasions that I'm cutting a slot or doing an operation that prevents the fence dust collection from working.
