    Those are some really cool additions to the system. I think at a point depending on how you work or what kind of work you do the cost of some of those add ons gets to be way more than you’ll ever get a return on in efficiency.

    Is there such a thing as too efficient? Lol

    Nice! That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking of doing.

    That all looks cool, but it looks like it’s just sortimo stuff with their tools and a few of their other storage items. Also looks like it’d be very difficult/expensive to get in the states.

    What is it that you don’t like about the L-box system that is better in the Festool system?

    I really like my boxes. They have stood up to quite a bit if abuse and still manage to look pretty good too.

    I feel they could be easier to click together and taking them apart. I am also pretty hung up on the access to lower units when they are stacked. Plus more options with Systainers. Well. ….till I saw this thread.

    I had a bit of difficulty at first with mine, when I would try to set one down and click it in there was a lot of sliding around, only one side clicking in, etc. I found that by doing it a bit less gingerly, basically “dropping” the box from about 2″ high onto the one below it, while keeping a loose grip on the handle, it clicks in almost every time.

    I’ve also been messing around with stacking options and have found that 5 L-Boxx 1’s stacked together is about the max that is efficient for me. The stack is about 20″ high, light enough to put in and out of the truck with one hand, and I can grab all 4 of the top boxes easily, unclick them, and set them next to the bottom box to get in it easily.

    My biggest issue is when I set two stacks of boxes too close to each other, and I can’t fit my hand in to release the inner clips to take the top boxes off. Just something I need to pay attention to when I set them down, I’m sure I will get used to leaving a bit of space between them.

    Those slide-out cabinets look like they would be ideal for plumbing and electrical fittings, where you just want to grab a piece quickly, or installations where you are moving through a commercial building repeating the same task over and over. I don’t see any real benefit for my type of remodeling/carpentry work, as I find it more efficient to unstack the boxes I’m using and leave them next to each other. When I set a tool down I put it back in its insert in the open box, so I’m not hunting for things, I don’t have to load tools at the end of the day, and I’m not opening and closing the boxes constantly.

    The folding table that mounts to the L-Boxx cart on one side instead of legs could be handy for guys that do very specialized work, where they need the same tools 100% of the time, but again that’s not my niche. Depending on what I’m doing I will take my Paulk workbench, just a pair of sawhorses, or sometimes work directly off the stack of lumber on my utility trailer. Having to haul out extra pieces because other pieces rely on them would slow me down a lot of the time.

    Came across this a guy who made a L-boxx vacuum . Got the idea from festools design . Used a 6′ 1 1/2 pool hose .

    Always willing to learn .

    I have the Rigid Pro Pack vacuum, and I have wondered about trying to shoehorn the guts from it into a L-Boxx 4 with maybe a L-Boxx 1 on top for hose and accessories. Would make me cry if I screwed it up though, $99 vacuum and $80 L-Boxx down the drain.

    I have the Rigid Pro Pack vacuum,

    I’ve looked at that one. It would fit nicely in my van.

    that is pretty cool, but what kind of vacuum is in the guts of the lboxx?

    thats cool, looks like its for a quick cuts , not anything major , does the dust get collected into the l box, looks like a good idea ,
