90 Year Anniversary Systainers
« on: August 04, 2017, 02:34 AM »
Greetings all...
New to the forum.
I have a slew of Systainers with the 90 Year badging.
Are these any more valuable than a normal Systainer?
Should I be holding on to them?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Not really. Some people may prefer them over the standard grey systainers, and might be willing to pay a few dollars more, but it would be wrong to look at systainers as valuable collectibles.

If I understand your question correctly, you are talking about the green T-lock with the 90 year wording.  I have seen these sell for $20.00 on Ebay, and I have seen the standard green version sell for $12.00 at my local dealer.  The Systainer itself is identical and the 90 year latch does simply pull off, and can be replaced with the standard green version.

I have several of these, and like them because they came out the same year I started my Festool journey.  I also won the 90 year special edition of the CXS drill, so they have special meaning to me. 

Having said that, I personally doubt anyone would pay a premium for a systainer with the 90 year badging, but stranger things have happened.

p.s.  I have also seen special badging on systainers when the newer batteries started coming out last year.  However, they were only black stickers, unlike the plastic raised lettering of the 90 year latch.

Hi,

  Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

     I don't think you are going to see any real extra value in the 90 latches simply because there are loads of them.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I didn't think there was going to be a premium but you NEVER know.

The T-Loc latch with the 90th anniversary is nice, but I highly doubt they're collectible as of yet.  My guess is they won't ever be.  Keep in mind that the systainer lid and body are manufactured date coded, so a true collector will know if the 90th latch belongs with it or not.  I'd wait for the 100th to be all the collectible stuff.
