Currently OOS, but orderable and ships July 7. Tool Barn has same price, also OOS (but orderable) but doesn't say when it ships.

Fortunately amazon has the price per oz listed as $0.43/oz. Good point of reference for comparison against my big Porter Cable and Milwaukee routers.
1HP = ~746 Watts
3HP = ~2238 Watts
2238W on a 120V line = 18.65 Amps

With a 20A breaker, entirely possible.
"How does this router compare against a comparable bag of cherries?"

Also BS. Impossible to get more than around 1.5HP out of a standard 120V outlet. Meaningless numbers.
1HP = ~746 Watts
3HP = ~2238 Watts
2238W on a 120V line = 18.65 Amps

With a 20A breaker, entirely possible.

I've got a Bosch RA1181 table and can't determine if this router is compatible (with or without modifications to the plate). The DW616 and DW618 are specifically listed. Would I just be better off with one of those?

This router does not operate at 18.65A.

It is designed to operate on a 15A circuit and NEC code does not allow for devices to run over 80% of circuit ceiling. So likely actual is <13A.

Feel free to reply with calculations of actual. Will be in realm of what I said previous.

Damn I was eyeing the 2 1/4" HP kit that has the fixed and plunge base for $200. This is tempting. But this is probably way more juice than I need and will probably be more heavy/cumbersome to use. Decisions decisions

Dude, how do you think shop vacs are routinely advertised as having 6.5HP? The answer is peak vs. rms

Anyone have thoughts on this vs the Triton 3 1/4hp router? I like that they both have rack and pinion. That's what bugs me about the ryobi is fighting a spring to get proper depth.

Ah, you finally get my point. Welcome!

Is meaningless.

From the DeWalt website description:

"The DW625 3 HP EVS Plunge Router has a powerful 15 Amp full wave electronic variable speed motor that runs at 8,000-22,000 RPM with constant speed under load."

NEC may regulate, but the number of 15A & 20A rated 120V tools that I own makes me wonder....
