I am very happy with my Triton TRA001's performance. It is always in the dedicated table with a Grizzly power feeder at about 20 ft. per min. feed rate. Recently took on the job of making T & G Red Oak paneling for horse stalls. The oak was a steal at $ 0.30 / bd.ft. from rejected rough cut 5/4 pallet lumber, and it planed out at 7/8" thick. So the Triton is cutting the tongue or groove in a single pass at 20 ft/min with no hesitation including running right through tight knots and other defects. Have run 1,000 bd. ft. or about 2,400 linear ft. with no problems. Cathedral raised panel cabinet rail and style doors do require 3 passes with different bearing sizes to prevent tear out using cherry lumber, but this is a normal problem with raised panel cabinet door construction. Previous routers in this table required multiple passes on T & G to keep from stalling or tear-out. Yes, a bit pricey, but worth it when being able to finish in a single pass.
