Question which router for above table bit changes

I just received my new Woodpecker Phenolic table top. along with the new Woodpecker V2 SW420-350 lift. I understand that in order to change bits above the table, I must have a certain type of router that will allow me to do this. I currently have the Porter Cable 690LR and the Bosch 1617/1618EVS. I believe the motor on the Bosch is too short for above table bit changes, but I'm not certain about the Porter Cable 690LR. Can anyone help me on this matter?

You bought the lift not knowing which router motors could be used in it? Both you have should work; advantage Bosch since it has 1/2 hp more than a 690.

No, Mike, I bought the whole package...table top.stand and the SW lift according to specific specs, but when I read the brochure out of the box the lift came in, it didn't mention anything about the 690 or 1617,so I thought I'd see what more experienced people had to say. Looks like I'll be all right though. Thanks for the response.
