T-Loc boxes are great but...
« on: April 02, 2017, 06:01 AM »
The handles wear on the ends and after a couple of years of site use the handles are in danger of coming off.
In pretty much every other way I love em but the handle pivots are a bit crap.
Just sayin.

I gotta agree with that. The handle wearing is the only criticism for them- I would say they last 3-5 years in my workflow.  Systainers are still one of my favourite festool products though!

On the plus points...
They fit into my Clarke toolsafe that I use for van security about as perfectly as its possible to get.
They're good to stack and move about on site with my extractor or my Sysroll.
I've got rid of pretty much all the other powered toolboxes and put the tools into T-Loc boxes.

Great boxes and I have a good few of them.
Crap handle pivots though.

I wish they were just A LITTLE bit thicker material so they wouldn't "rack" when they're sitting on an uneven surface and I wish they were glass-fiber reinforced ABS, instead of just plane ole ABS.

I like them, in general though.
