World’s Second Look at New Triton Tools

This is the final release of the Australian Triton Catalogue, and there is now even more big news to be found within! There are a bunch of new tools, and some that were previously unannounced.

Big coup for Stu’s Shed – a World’s First look at the new tools about to be released by Triton! This post was originally published a couple of months ago, but for commercial-in-confidence reasons I was asked to delay the release. Given I had no particular concern about the content and the delay I was happy to comply with the request.


This is the image from the front cover, just the whet the appetite.

I haven’t seen any (other than the new saw, and even that I haven’t actually used, so cannot pass much comment at this stage). I’ll reserve judgement until I get to actually use these tools, but at least bringing it to you, because new tools are always cool!

235mm Precision Circular Saw

First off the rack is the replacement for the Triton 235mm 2400W Saw. Still comes with a 40 TCT blade, has a laser (not useful when in table mode), and the same microadjustments of the older saw.

305mm Double Bevel Slide Compound Mitre Saw

An interesting design, not dissimilar to the GMC version in the concept of the double bevel. Rather than having to turn the work to get the bevel in the other direction, this saw can tilt to 45 degrees to either side. To be able to achieve this, the motor itself is angled so it is out of the way when tilting to the right.

Unlimited Rebate Precision Planer

Interesting concept, the planer blade drum is supported at one end only, so you can get an unlimited depth of rebate. The guard rotates up, to the point that it clicks out of the way altogether.

Tri-Blade Planer

Stu’s Shed revealed this was in the USA about 6 months ago. When Triton bought out the earlier planer (now discontinued) I got to have a play with it, and always said this version should be the orange one in comparison.

Compact Planer

This is designed to be a one-handed planer. However for safety you still need 2 hands to start it.

1200W Belt Sander

This looks an interesting beast, and I am quite interested to get to see this one closer. I don’t use belt sanders much, but it’s nice to have a good one, so I’m curious about this one!

Dual Mode Random Orbital Sander

Orbital, and Random Orbital modes are available. There is already a finishing ROS, so I expect this is more stock removal than final finishing.

850W Dowelling Machine

One day, I hope this will be a domino, but I guess Festool still has that design locked down! For those who prefer dowels to biscuits. Think there should have been a handheld biscuit jointer as well, but that’s my opinion. ***Update – it is listed in there, but not available in NZ / Oz***

Biscuit Joiner

Lithium Rotary Tool Super Kit
LiIon Cordless

There is still a dremel-like rotary tool in the range, and now, like Dremel, there is a cordless version.

Ultimate Superjaws Portable Workstation Vice

This is an unusual one, and that it has the Superjaws name. I don’t know what to think of this one, so will reserve my judgement until I see it in person. Curious to see how it compares to the Superjaws.

I have no information on release dates or prices, but if you want more specs on any of these, drop me a comment, or email.

Saving a big one for last – have a look at the new Triton 1000W router

Very similar to its two bigger cousins, it is about 400g lighter, and appears to have all the features of the larger models. It is touted as being a handheld version of the other routers, so it will be interesting to see whether it feels as top-heavy as the bigger versions.

Both this one and the 1400W router are now depicted with the upgraded collet, so hopefully it means this is finally going to be available in Australia!
