    I don’t understand why they don’t make an LB-5 sized unit. Tanos/Systainer does, why not one for the L-Boxx line? They all come from the same company.

    They’re not from the same company. The Sys5 is taller, but the L4 has more volume.

    I just found out recently that both Sortimo and Tanos are owned by the parent company that owns Festool also. ToolGuyD had this info in an article a week or two ago.

    Sortimo pays a license fee to TTS. I think thats the extent of any relationship. Two separate companies and manufacturers.

    I guess the idea of an empty plastic box that stacks on top of one another was innovative enough that Sortimo had to pay up, bc otherwise they have nothing in common.

    Then ToolGuyD is wrong I suppose in what they write in this article.

    Hey, maybe they are. I haven’t found anything to corroborate it, nor have I found anything to refute it either.

    Thanks for the link. I just read through it. I dont think it’s wrong. Unless I missed something, it’s saying the same thing i did.

    You may be right. In re-reading it again, it says that they pay a license fee to TTS. It doesn’t necessarily say that Sortimo is owned by anybody, if any. It’s poorly worded imo.

    Wow that sure is a valuable patent. I wonder if Milwaukee, DeWalt etc have to pay a license fee as well?

    Festool has one larger size in their systainers right? For what type of tool is it designed for?

    Both my Domino XL and my TS75 track saw come in them.

    OLD THREAD WARNING.

    I recently got my first LB4 which was intended for my half sheet sander and its imported foam molded insert. As anticipated, I knew the insert designed for an LB3 would not fit to the bottom of an LB4 due to the tapered inward walls becoming narrower the bigger size an LB is. So what I did in this case rather than try to shave the walls of the insert was simply place my rolls of Abranet in the bottom rather than on top. Once that somewhat heavy sander is removed, the insert itself is easy to pull out to get at the rolls in the bottom. Works for me and keeps all that stuff in one location which was my primary objective in getting the LB4.

    That’s a great way to stay organized and not loss tile trying to find what you need .

    the LT-BOXX sure comes in handy. I see you found great use for them. are they easy to take a part?

    yah i am curious how much was it and how much was shipping, you’d think they would have this in north america since so many of us like it.

    Sometimes I think the only people who even know Lboxxes exist in NA are all on BTP. The Lboxx is a great thing, but the word never got out – I think Bosch just decided there was no market and never bothered to test out that theory
