    I’d say l-boxxes are likely more durable than systainers, but I haven’t actually heard of many instances where a systainer was damaged.
    Otter Box used to make pelican case type stuff, not sure they do anything large enough for you.

    It seems to me that L-boxxes and Systainers are made from a similar hard plastic. I much prefer the latches on the L-boxxes though.

    The old style, or the T-loc? The latter is very easy to use.

    One more question:

    How many drawers go in the L-Boxx 3D? I see there are thick and thin drawers. Can you mix and match, say, 1 thick, and 2 thin?

    This picture shows the combinations of drawers that work with the 3D, though you can also technically fit 3 of the smallest drawers in together (but they do not lock in to the 3d)

    Sounds like you may be better off with the dewalt tough boxes, but I appreciate that my l-boxxes weigh less than tough boxes.

    While somewhat durable, the L Boxxes would not take a huge hit. They are a thinner, harder plastic. If you are looking for durability and water proof, DeWalt is the way to go.

    Thanks. I was wondering how they compared to the DeWalt.

    I agree, I do things with my DeWalt boxes I don’t do with the L-boxxes. Like stand on them and put a plank on 2 of them to work off of.

    The dewalt boxes do seem stronger, but Ive sat on a couple of Lboxxes many times, and my fat butt hasnt caused them any strain.

    Sortimo rates them at 100kg (220lbs) each, so a plank on two of them should support double that (more or less, allowing for uneven balancing)

    I hear you Dirty, I have often wondered if the L-Boxx was up to that kind of use.

    Just started to collect the L boxes, it’s been about 5 months now,
    I like them a lot, but if I had to do it all over, I might of held off for another sort. Hey even the keter brand has tool boxes now, and they even do something like a rolling one, and they are pretty durable, plus water proof I think, and can be locked, I saw them on TIA

    I just like the Bosch L boxes, mainly because I use for Bosch tools.

    I’d like to see some of the egg crate foam that ships with pelican cases. If the tools you keep in the box are roughly the same thickness, you don’t have to cut the foam out for the tools, which makes it easy to adapt and change your system without redoing everything.

    #482549

    Now they will be in the L-boxx 3D draws also from Kazien foam .
