A dewalt hammer drill that I use for mixing mud and paint. I hade to cut the shaft on the paint and mud mixing paddles to fit the sys 3 midi. Also have a makita drywall gun in there. I even got one for my air hoses, extension cords, caulking and adheshives.

Recently treated myself to two Systainers for storage.

Here is a photo of my 14.4v Panasonic cordless drill and Impact Driver together with batteries in a Systainer 2.

I keep my Milwaukee M18 tools in a Tanos midi III; 4 batteries, Milwaukee circular driver bit set, drill, impact driver, 3/8" socket driver, and grinder with xtra wheels.  I keep a M12 metal cutting saw in a SYS IV
I also use Milwaukee M12v; keep the drill, impacrt driver, socket driver and 5 batteries, another bit set in one SYSI. 
I keep the M12 roto tool, recip saw and multi tool in another.  I use bottom padding only as these are tools I use daily in commercial automatic door work,  (these are tools, not precious jewels).
 Below these I use a 6 drawer sortainer to deep extra bits, various bit holders, hole saw bits, countersinks etc. (it is amazing how many small parts these hold).  As a side I use drawer drawer liner material ( also sold as non slip router pads at inflated prices) to line the drawer bottoms.  The partitions push this material down nicely to allow the drawers to close but still reduce the rattle factor.

Hey rst,

Any advice on the M12 stuff?   [unsure]

I'm thinking of giving away my little bosch impact and cordless dremel and adding the Milw. to my cordless gear. 

I'd like the Impact of coarse but also the rotary tool, Hackzall, ratchet and LED light.

I tried to make make the festool system work for my carpentry and makita tools, but failed. I made a case for the carpentry stuff that would fit into a sys4. Pull the case out and it had drawers exposing tools. It worked okay for a while, but I wanted everything to be quicker to get to. I did the same for my makita drill/driver and PPE. Had them in a sys 3 and it worked okay, but I'd have to get them in just right and the hammer drill wouldn't fit unless I took off the battery.
Finally I just put all these things in a Veto XXL-OT. Makita light, drill, impact driver on one side, hammer and assorted carpentry tools on the other. Heavy, but it works better for me.

I switched over to some of the M12 tools about a year ago and love them. The impact driver and multitool I use just about everyday with no complaints. I also have the radio, palm nailer, roto tool and one of the heated sweatshirts. For batteries I have three of the 1.5 amp hr and one of the 4 amp hr. The smaller ones work fine for most tasks as long as you always have an extra one on charge, for instance the radio will run for most of a day on a full charge. Using the 4 amp hr in the multi tool is wonderful! It works so well I took my corded one out of my van.

Wow Thx. Bike,

I'm gonna see if I can corner the Milw. rep for our area and hit him up for a deal.  I do a lot of hardware and I'm tired of the dremel being a stand alone tool and a dedicated charger. 

How is the heated hoody?

I like it...it does have it's limitations though.

On a windy day I usually wear a jacket or second hoody over it otherwise the wind blows right through it and the heat is lost.

I do like that it has multiple heat settings, I usually start with it on high in the morning and gradually click it lower and I get going. I usually will get most of a day on one charge.

Over here in The Netherlands Makita also sells most of their more upmarket products in so called M-Boxes. These basicly are rebranded Tanos systainers with a Makita logo on them. Therefore there are also inlays for most Makita tools available in systainers.

Perhaps it's worth looking into for you to see if you can get those inlays shipped to the US?

I'd post a picture of them here, but for some reason the forum won't let me. Probably because this is my 1st post. Just google for Makita M-Box and you'll see for yourself :)

Mine is still a work i progress so no pics yet  [tongue]. I got a sys 5 and in the bottom layer i have the LXT cordless saw/ jigsaw 2 batteries and a charger. The upper layer has my impact/ a new DHP458  ( with batteries attached, and 2 more batteries.
The bottom layer is in foam, but i'm not happy with it so will order some kaizen foam for both layers next weekend and finish it off.  [big grin]

I use a 4 drawer Sortainer.  Two guns and 4-5 batteries fit in the big drawer, and the 3 upper drawers have plenty of space for bits, tips, etc.  One thing to note - the belt clips need to be removed to fit in the drawer.  I never use them, so it wasn't an issue for me.  I do keep them in one of the small drawers just in case I need them for some reason.

I don't carry the charger with me, usually.  I have 3 chargers set up in my shop, and one in the van on an inverter.  With 4 charged batteries in the drawer, I've never needed to charge on an install.  If an emergency arises, I can always just go to the van and bring that one inside.

I've thought about cutting some foam to pad the guns a bit, but I am way rougher on them than any drawer could ever be!

I also have a Sys Maxi outfitted with simple plywood dividers for the rest.  The 6" circ saw, the planer, grinder, and reciprocating saw all fit, along with a couple batteries.  A charger fits on top of the grinder if I decide to toss it in.  I just got the Makita cordless multi-tool and LOVE IT.  I need to find a way to fit that in the kit, as well...

delicious looking makita set…

so how does the extra big sys fit into the system? i mean, you probably don't use it as a stackable so its in essence a suitcase.
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

the big one (Sys Maxi) is exactly twice the footprint of a regular Sys or T-Loc.  You can stack Sys's double wide on the Maxi, but in order to lock on, the latches need to face the center, so you can't really open them in the stack.

If I need to roll a big stack of Sys's into a site, I have a plywood dolly I cut just for the Sys Maxi.  It's just a plywood slab with cutouts for the Sys Maxi feet to nest in.  I can then stack a dozen Sys's on top ands roll in.  But, I mostly just use it in "suitcase" mode.

Steve R did a post a while back, you can see them stacked there.  FOG - Maxi Systainer Review

Hello All

I know I am blowing the dust off an old thread here.  [big grin]

I have the Makita 10.8V Drill and Impact driver that I use for fitting out. It is currently in a Makita box but it doesn't fit in with the Systainer theme. Has anybody managed to get all the bits into a Sys2? I think that would be the correct size.

Regards
Graham

My Makitas are all in Systainer-compatible Makpacs:



They come in 4 sizes (1 to 4), clip beneath T-Locs in the same way that Systainer Classics do. Over here Makita have introduced a full range of blow moulded inserts for the cordless tools and quite a few of the corded ones as well (including the SP6000 plunge/rail saw). They have now started to embelish the range with stuff like roll boards, tool totes:



and the inevitable sack trucks:



They are most certainly not made by Tanos and are a completely different design

Over here in The Netherlands Makita also sells most of their more upmarket products in so called M-Boxes. These basicly are rebranded Tanos systainers with a Makita logo on them.
We had them here, too for about a year or possibly less before Makita decided they'd go their own way and manufacture (presumably) in-house

This pic was a test run in a systainer 2 , I've since bought a tanos sys 2 with an attic lid added a foam pad to the bottom and yellow tloc for good measure...
Trying to cut something out in kaizan foam wouldn't have worked very well for this arrangement
