Router for router Table

Just wanted to introduce myself and ask my first question.

I found this site through a link from Woodnet. I am an enthusiastic do-it-yourselfer from CT and have had the woodworking bug for about 5 years and have a "bad" habit of collecting tools (with the blessing of the better half of course).

For my first question, I received a Bench Dog Router Table for X-Mas and need (or should I say want) to purchase a dedicated router. I have read numerous posts in various forums and searched the web. I currently have a Porter Cable 890 and it seems well suited for the table. The favorite choices seem to be the 3 1/2 HP Milwaukee 5625 and Porter Cable 7518. I have also looked into another Porter Cable 890 and have read some promising reviews of the Triton routers. Are the big routers necessary or will the 2 1/4 HP models suit my needs. I will be doing general routing and may make an occasional raised panel. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

The folks over on the CWW forum have been looking at the Triton brand. You might want to check them out. I think Busy Bee sells them

I have a benchdog router table and have a DW 625 in it, great router but suited best for hand work. If I had to do it again, I would go with the Milwaukee or the Trition, that is one sweet router!
