What happened to the Cadex compressor in the Systainer? I know The Tool Nut was set up to sell them, now you don't see it there.

Thanks Peter, that definitely shed light on the subject. I originally started the post after having problems with two brand new Grex 23g nailers. They both jammed up using their longest capacity nail. Send the first one in for repair and it came back with the same problem. Was beginning to think it was user error, but I checked everything and was within Grex recommendations. So I bought a Cadex nailer yesterday and had remembered seeing the compressor in the systainer.

Actually I believe that Atlas Copco acquired Schneider Air Systems from TTS last year (2016).

https://www.schneider-airsystems.com/About-us/Documents/160615_press-release_AtlasCopco-acquire-SchneiderDruckluftGmbH_FINAL-ENG.pdf

http://www.atlascopco.com/us/news/corporatenews/20160802_acquisition.aspx
That is strange, as https://www.festool-group.com/ still lists schneider-airsystems on the bottom.

But anyway, compressor in systainer is available from schneider - and it works nicely (I have one).
The one in the linked topic is advertised to be less noisy (68 instead of 89 of the SysMaster), but it dosn't seem to be available (when the SysMaster is) yet - at least here in Europe.
