Tom - no matter if it is a tool or a washing machine, whenever I opt for the extended warranty, it breaks down one week after the extension expires. Maybe it's just me and my bad luck - I dunno.
Kinda the same luck I usually have.Tom - no matter if it is a tool or a washing machine, whenever I opt for the extended warranty, it breaks down one week after the extension expires. Maybe it's just me and my bad luck - I dunno.
Thanks Tom, that’s good to hear!!Love my TRA001. No problems with it at all. I've had very mixed results with extended guarantees. If you have something wrong with a Triton, they will bend over backwards to take care of it. Get it, enjoy it.
Very true, didn’t look at it that way!Personally I wouldn't dream of spending an extra $110 on a warranty for a $250 tool. You would have nearly paid half the replacement cost.
No. Most hardware goes bad at the beginning of it's life.Looking for opinions.
I found a dealer that has the Tra001 in stock for 249$.
Found the same router at Home Depot for 309$, but they offer a 2 or3 yr protection plan for an extra 50$.
Would you guys pay the extra 100$?
Thanks CityguyNo. Most hardware goes bad at the beginning of it's life.
Let me restate that. I'm reading this thinking a computer router not a woodworking router. So most technology hardware goes bad at the beginning of life. I don't know if that holds true for tools. But I've had a pretty good experience with tools excepting the Freud Router I bought at Lowe's for $99 some years back. It's not that it's a bad router it's that they don't have any of the accessories that you need to use with a router for the Freud. It was a going out-of-the-router-business sale by Freud and it was a great price. Lowe's marketed right at Xmas for one-day only. Now I'm having to face replacing it for almost $300 with a Bosch and it's hard to get myself to spend another $300 while the one in my basement has had very little use.Thanks Cityguy
