I have a 1/4" Power Devil which I assumed would be crap and disposable but has seen years of active service and just keeps going. So I got a Wickes 1/2" which was on offer (actually from the same factory as Erbauer) and while it's OK, it's got several niggling features, it's impossible to get spares/accessories for and the only way to attach a 30mm guide bush is to buy several expensive Trend accessories which I think is money better spent on a different router.
The budget is £200 (although cheaper would be good). I've been looking at Trend, Freud, Triton and Ryobi.
Trend seem quite expensive for no obvious benefits (other than presumably compatibility with lots of expensive Trend accessories).
Axminster have a Ryobi ERT-2100V on sale at £100 which seems like a very good price. The only mention of an included guide bush I found on another website was of some obscure size. What's Ryobi quality like?
The Freud at £150 seems to tick the immediate boxes but I wonder if I should spend an extra £50 for the Triton's ease of use in a table?
My concerns about the Triton (apart from the price) are the availablity of 30mm guide bushes and whether Triton are still in business. Also some sources list a 2400W model and others a 2000w model. Triton's website isn't helpful as it describes a 2000W model with a rated power of 2400W.
There's also a 1400W Triton that's thirty quid cheaper.
Anyone got any experience of these they'd care to share? Are there other makes worth considering?
Thanks in advance.
