@Kev

@Untidy Shop if you only knew how many 4.2Ah's I have [crying]

(and already have every 18V tool available ... well, actually I don't have a DRC18-4 or a T18, but I figure the PDC18-4, C18 cover the space)

I couldn't see any mention of whether the bonus battery is a 5.2 or a 4.2v, just says plus 18v Bonus Battery!

Longtime lurker, first time poster.

I caved in and went into Sth Melbourne today.

I'm a builder, already having the RO 150, RAS 115, TS 55, I just saw way too many applications for the HKC not to have it, my pet hate is moving long lengths to a drop saw. I figure it will be excellent for cutting in decks, flooring, weatherboards, cutting rafters and any big miters the droppy cant get.

Was $1040 for the Saw + 420mm guide rail, charger, 2 x 5.2amp batteries and the bonus was a 4.2amp battery. I also picked up the dust bag. Pretty good deal I thought considering the saw skin was 550

They ordered 10 of these packs in from Festool, I got the 10th today, he said they wouldn't be getting these packs in for at least a month.

Looking forward to using it on the job, will let people know how it goes.

I'm currently looking at overhauling my entire onsite setup atm, getting a new trailer built around fitting systainers and transfering all of my tools into T-loc systainers and sortainers. I've got too much wasted space from boxes etc.

Anyone know of the best place in Aus to purchase systainers, also is it possible to get Tanos systainers over here that aren't upwards of $250 a pop?

There's a Aussie FOG member than can import in bulk - I'll dig up his details for you. Gets all the cool Tanos range.

Awesome thanks mate.

Was thinking of possibly buying direct from Germany posting to a UK parcel forwarder, anyone done this? I've done it for US stuff in the past, it's quite good. The language barrier though..

There's also an Italy based dealer that sells on Ebay and ships to Aus, anyone use him before? Been thinking of buying a 700 XL and his price is a good 700 cheaper than here.

I got mine from a place in QLD. http://www.cltoolcentre.com.au
With the exchange rate it wasn't bad and the shipping is free if you get enough.
I got a dolly for them as well...

I only bought 40, but I am thinking maybe I should get some more.
I really need some #2 and #3.

When the Ikea wire rack collapsed I waddled to the computer place the order, and a rolling trolly.
Should be about 4.5 M tall, so one 2M stack of retic, misc electrical, etc... and then another 20+ in the garage.

Where'd you order them Kev? I looked at them this morning, then decided to call a shop tomorrow, being tight trying to avoid shipping. Then when I saw that everyone's buying them up, I tried to order some this evening on the Festool site and it was rejected..

I'm the guy who bought in the Tanos systainers a few years back. Feel free to PM me if your're interested in getting hold of some of the items from the Tanos catalogue that aren't readily available in the Festool range, I might be able to put something together in the next few weeks, but no guarantees.  Last time I tried to stick to the items that Festool Australia didn't offer (colours and different inserts), doesn't seem fair to cut the grass of a real business. 

Pricing wise, for international shipping I piggypacked on the back of some machinery the company I work for was getting shipped from Europe, so the only shipping costs were around 200Euro to get across Europe + customs at our end.  For distribution in Australia (I'm on the Gold Coast), Transdirect are pretty competitive for transport.
The Tanos pricing and catalogues are on their website, last time it was 30% off rrp for a pallet of mixed sizes.  With the AUD down against the Euro, it's certainly not giveway prices.

@ggc    That's interesting I'll keep an eye out to see if anything comes of this.
 
 In the past I have imported quite a lot of equipment including items from Tanos into Aus from the UK and like you say because of the low AUD at the present time things certainly aren't cheap at the moment.

Good news on the Tanos front, I can make a pallet load order happen at a reasonable price.  Bad news is that I need to place an order this week to connect with the cheap shipping I have access to.  Other bad news (for me) is that the container lands in Melbourne instead of the Gold Coast, but I reckon a motorhome relocation holiday/roadtrip will fix that problem

Realistically that doesn't leave a lot of time to organise a group buy and collect money, but to get to a decent discount from Tanos it really needs to be a full pallet, and I just don't need that many systainers in my life. 
Sooo, if people send me a request via PM for what they want, I'll add it to the order until  i reach a pallet load.  No payment up front (there's still a chance I won't make the shipping cut-off), but you'll only have 2 weeks to pay (direct transfer or paypal) after it lands in Australia before I put it on ebay.
Pricing will be as per Tanos 2015 pricelist (tanos.de - service- downloads)except for the Tloc Sortainers and SYS-combis which are available on the tanos website or in the 2016 pricelist if you can find it.   
Further price reduction will be based on discount received from Tanos - 20% to cover customs/European transport/international money transfers/shrinkage/risk/stress etc. 
So if the order is big enough and I get a 30% discount from tanos, the price to the individual will be 10% (30%-20%) less than the tanos rrp* the exchange rate.  Based on current exchange rate, that means an empty SysIV would be around $82AUD. 

All shipping in Australia to be the responsibility of the purchaser, but it looks like I can arrange pickup in Melbourne or the Gold Coast.  Can also package up an order for pickup by courier.

also, it needs to fit in a systainer or maxi-sys to maximise the shipping volume, so no roll carts or tanos mobil

Awesome work mate.

What day is the deadline that you need for the order?

I also presume all the inserts etc are ok to be ordered?
