Hi,

I am newbie here, live in Moscow, Russia and recently joined this forum. Recently I got Triton TRA001 router (already have Bosch and Einhell routers). It came a new from a private sale, the seller did not have warranty document, so I was wondering whether there is a way to track the warranty period without it (I am aware that in some case private sale will void warranty at all, but so far I do not have any info on this).

Basically I wrote Triton Co this question and also asked how come that they (as manufacturer) provide 3 yrs warranty and Russian distributor decreases it to 1 year (which is against the law in Russia, by the way).
Never heard anything back from them, at all. It is my first Triton instrument (and kinda likely it will be the last one), I only can compare their service to Bosch, which I find a very good one (I have many Bosch instruments).

1) Is Triton acting always the same way (not responding to requests)?
2) What is the length of warranty for Triton routers in your country?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Salavat. I can not answer your question,as I do not have a Triton tool. We have had several threads on here lately about Triton routers. Is there something wrong with your router that you need warranty information for it?
What kind of woodworking do you do?
Are you shut down in your country like we are here?
Good to have you here,enjoy your stay. Someone will be along to answer your Question.

Hi Herb,

We are in lockdown (Moscow at least), and I am hiding away from virus in a countryhouse))

No, my router so far is fine, but I read many threads (in Russian forums at least) about different problems with TRA001, so having warranty would make me feel better.

I am just a beginner, trying to make some very basic furniture, main reason to get 1/2' collet powerful router was to be able to make all those nice bells and whistles, which make furniture look great)). I like American style of wood furniture (no surprise, it is a great combination of different styles).

Hey, Salavat; welcome! Your English is excellent, by the way. Please stick around; we'd love to have some insight into woodworking in Russia. For example, I'd never heard of the Einhell brand. Sounds German or Swiss(?)...
You can post pictures that are on your hard drive, but not from the 'net until you have 10 posts...you're almost there! :)

Thanks. Einhell is a German brand, which is kind a entry level (in terms of quality), like generic brands for tools you see on Amazon. Einhell TE-RO 1255 E is 1200 Watts (sorry do not know how much that in H.P, which you use to measure power of the tools), adjustable speed, 3.25 Kg (sorry again for metric quotation), 6 mm and 8 mm collets, basically good for hand routing.

I am not that aware about woodworking in Russia, but there are dedicated to woodworking shops (at least 3 in Moscow), where you can get almost every type of equipment made in US, Japan, etc. We do have some choice of power tools in Russia, but in US have way more tools (from the same brands as Bosch, Makita, DeWalt, etc) ))), so that makes me jealous sometimes :smile:

Main forum for woodworking in Russia is forum.woodtools.ru

I presume you will be using your router in both your router table and freehand? Maybe the Quarantine has the customer service Departments closed at this time.

Herb, I am not sure 6 Kg router (Triton) would be comfortable to used freehand )). I got JET JRT-2 router table, it made for Triton routers (basically router plate comes drilled for Triton routers), so I think that would be main use of that router.

Hi Salavat and welcome. Western culture is the best there has ever been at stealing ideas and improving on them. Even our language is stolen from several others. And some of us speak metric fluently.

I have the TRA001 and it's been trouble free. It is too heavy for me to use freehand, so mine is in the table. Very powerful router and good safety interlocks. You either have or could order the crank for above table adjustments. If you want a good introduction to using that particular router, go to youtube and look up woodworking videos by Marc Sommerfeld. I learned more watch him work than anywhere else. He uses the Triton as well. He doesn't wear a mask or use the safety devices because they're shooting video, but you should always wear the mask and safety glasses.

Nice to have someone from Russia. An interesting place that has sure changed from the old Soviet Union days. I hear life is pretty good there for the most part. Hope you manage to stay clear of the virus. A couple of Los Angeles universities did studies and found very high infection rates vs hospitalization and death rates, which means the virus is highly infectious but not much more lethal than the ordinary flu.

I drove through Watts (accidentally!) in 1968. I got some very strange looks.
rumor control says that's the norm everywhere...
