Answer: 
I have it in a router table and am using a Bench Dog "group 2" insert plate (largest size). The maximum diameter in this configuration is 3-11/16". In this configuration, I have no problem using any of the panel raising bits I own and while my largest is 3-1/4, I think it would handle up to 3-1/2" with no problem.
Other than replacing the supplied phenolic base plate with the insert plate and removing Read More

Other than replacing the supplied phenolic base plate with the insert plate and removing the lift spring, there were no modifications to the router, so yes, there should be no problem using a 3" panel raising bit. Read Less

While mounted in a table, with the spring removed; do you still have to reach under the table to engage the lock lever...or does it automatically lock in place with that spring removed?

Answer: 
If you mean the lift lock, yes, you should reach under the table and lock down the lift once you set the desired height, or it MAY drift on you...that said, I have neglected to do so, and have gotten away with it, but not always.
You probably will have to drill an extra hole in your insert plate or in your table top to accommodate the (removable) lift crank handle.

If you mean the lift lock, yes, you should reach under the table and lock down the lift once you set the desired height, or it MAY drift on you...that said, I have neglected to do so, and have gotten away with it, but not always.
You probably will have to drill an extra hole in your insert plate or in your table top to accommodate the (removable) lift crank handle.
If you mean the shaft lock, the shaft lock engages when you raise the collet above the table, and this also locks out the power switch. Some find this an annoyance because they have a separate power switch on their router table and they have to remember to turn the router back on after a bit change, but I find it to be a convenience.
Do take some time to visualize the operation of your router table before you drill out your table top or insert plate to fit this router. With a bit of thought, you can make it easy to accommodate all of the controls and adjustments without bashing your knuckles. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, the handle is included (part #24 in the manual). But if your table doesn't have a hole in the right spot, you'll need to drill one through the table yourself. I found a YouTube video of someone modifying their Incra router mount for this router to allow the height adjustment from above the table.

110-Volt 3.25 HP Precision Dual Mode Router with Plunge is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.

I have only used it once since receiving it and can not comment beyond that. the only problem I have found is the 1/2" Collet is sticky and had to remove a bit with pliers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for router table use Mounted the router to a 3/4" thick phenolic router table - and still able to change bits from above. Easy to change heights - comes with an above table handle, and removing the plunge spring for table use is a great enhancement. I have not used it free-hand, so cannot comment on that use or the accessories that came in the package to assist circles, edges, etc. Be careful in removing the plunge spring - the spring cap is not screw on, a 1/8 turn twist releases it and the spring. Having separate collets for 1/2" and 1/4" is a good feature, allows better gripping of the bits and removes the challenge of keeping track of an insert. The variable speed adjustment wheel is not positioned well for viewing when mounted on a router table. Not a big deal, but when I want a specific speed range have to get on the floor to view the numbers. Very happy with the router.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, good quality, dust could be better Everything advertised is right on. The only thing that has bothered me after about 3 hours of use is that the dust shroud is not as good as advertised. Even when hooked up to my shop vac it blasts a fair amount the other side. As a dedicated router for a table, this is a great and the dust isn't as much as an issue with dedicated dust collection. Still, great power, the soft start is nice for control, and the adjustments are spot on. I will be buying the smaller version for more fine working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, powerful, convenient features. Excellent for use in router table I bought this router after burning out a 2.5 HP Dewalt trying to roughy miter lock joints in QSWO. This router fit very nicely under my router table. The above table height adjuster and automatic spindle lock make bit changes a breeze (no more craning my neck from under the table while I try to make fine adjustments to bit height. Smooth start feature avoids torquing on startup. 3.25 HP is excellent for running large complex bits at slow speed without faltering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Router! This router is amazing! As others have posted its weight (coming in at 19 lbs) is a little much for hand held operations...namely because over the course of many years I developed a habit of using 1 hand on the router; the other to hold the wood stock. If one uses both hands this router will present no problems. In fact I built a router table, mounted the router and have no intention of ever un-mounting it. Next purchase will be a smaller router one can safely use one-handed...I'll be looking for a Triton. Long story short...you can't go wrong by purchasing this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power and good value There is little to not like about this beast. Bit changes are easy and power is in spades. I used my military discount so received another 10%. HD also had the best price on this tool. Anyway I purchased the router for use in a router table and so far it is working great. I only wish the Triton router table was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing power & smoothness I purchased this router to mount into my router table to replace my 2 1/4 hp "other brand" router. Since mounting I have used profile, straight and round over bits in it. I just cannot believe the smooth power the Tritan cuts with. Honestly it should with nearly 50% more hp! but the smoothness combined with the extra power is amazing. Add to that the cost - nearly half that of other similarly powered routers and this is a tremendous value. I do not use it in the hand-held fashion so the weight (which is the only con I have ever read on it) isn't a factor to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router for table use. Excellent value for the price I paid. Might be a tad heavy for hand held use for we older users, but for use in a router table, which is what I bought it for, it works great.
