Schneider SysMaster SYM 150-8-6 WXOF
« on: October 25, 2014, 02:19 PM »
Hi all,

I am curious how i can get hold of one of these in the UK. I have seen someone I believe on here had it in Festool livery. I would be nice to hear back.

I don't see the UK listed as a country where Schneider is sold on their website's home page (bottom left).

Hi Shane,

Thank you for a reply. I already had a look on their site for uk suppliers and sure enough there aren't any. Do you know if it would be possible import one though Festool UK in Festool livery, considering that both names are part of TTS Tooltechnik Group?

I've emailed Phil from Festool UK to get more info.

But, I don't think Schneider products are available as Festool products. They are separate companies.

EV,

I admittedly don't have a good knowledge of Schneider, but that looks like someone might have just dropped it in a Festool Systainer and painted the plastic around the gauges. Let's wait and see what Phil has to say.

Thank you Phil, I think it would be a cheaper option to order through Schneider distributor as buying as a Festool branded Limited Edition, well it is frankly to much money for a compressor at €600 in comparison to under €400 for a Schneider.

Dang, that's quite the price difference.

Even though Toolnation ships to the UK, I've got a hunch they will not ship Festool products out of Holland. Festool always expressly forbids it, though with current European rules I am not sure it's even entirely legal to do so.

Not sure if Schneider has the same export limitations Festool has, so you can always try. I have ordered a couple of times from  Gerschwitz, and I can only say it is an excellent company with great and fast service, and a very international mindset. Would heavily recommend them.

That compressor looks cool, but it's really noisy - 90dBA. You could get a better, quieter compressor elsewhere, and put it in a systainer, for a lot less.

I currently have one of these and it is noisy to. http://www.screwfix.com/p/stanley-dn-8-5-4-5ltr-portable-air-compressor-240v/22374, unfortunately it is to big to fit in a Systainer and to be honest it is to much of a bother to do something like this, considering it already has got a handle and not that heavy either. I just like the idea of systainers and their consistent sizes. There are low noise compressors out there but cost just as much as Schneider if not more. However if you are aware of any that are portable and compact then please let me know.

I wonder if you could use something like DynaMat that they use for deadening sound in car doors, etc? It's not very thick, but it is heavy...

Prebena still has their offering in the old style systainer



Amazon.de

Price is somewhat higher, more output, less noise (75dB), more weight (23,5kg vs 13 kg), smaller tank (2L vs 6L)

It is cheaper from their UK site, but I do not want classic Systainer combo. most of my stuff is in T-lock's apart from my chisels and sharpening gear in a Classic SYS 1 and 3 Sortainers. There is also element of speck that i do not like. For example it has 2 ltr tank instead of 6 ltr in the Schneider, Ok Schneider is louder but will come on allot less often in comparison to Prebena, meaning it'll generate allot more noise over a period of say 2 hour nailing, etc.

So to conclude without offending anyone, its a NO.

Thank you for your contribution tho.

Resurrecting and old thread here and just wondering if you or anybody else bought the schneider sysmaster? I'm about to take the plounge on one and wanted to order a systainer in the same colour to hold my nail guns. My question is what colour is the darn thing? Is it anthracite or Black? I've compared using the tanos website but I still can't figure it out!!

Many thanks

Hi,

Personally I haven't purchased one yet but looking in to it. Just need to get my job transfer out of the way first. I belive the systainer is anthracite rather than black.

Let us know what you think of it if you do end up getting one.

Anyone here done the senco in a tloc job. Just bought a pc1010 and I have a spare sys4. By the looks of it you just need to cut off the handle.

Would like to hear from someone who's done it and how its been long term.

Hi Ev

Ok thanks, I was siding on the anthracite side as well so I'll go for that to see how it works out, worst comes to the worst the spare systainer won't go to waste, I'll find a job for it.

I will do regards the compressor. Have read comments about people saying it's very loud but having watched a few videos on YouTube im inclined to believe it's not that bad, certainly not compared to what I've been used to!

Morning William,

I am currently watching one on eBay at £282 + £11.99 shipping by to UK from Germany. It seem to be the best price I can find at the moment.  Here is eBay item number in case you would like to have a look 190846812994

Hi Ev

Yes that's the one I have my eye on as well, thanks for the recommendation. As a side note neeleman replied to a separate post this morning in which he highlighted an identical compressor only in the senco colours. Warren from Toolfest spotted it and said he was going to check availability of it as he stocks senco so I'm now waiting to hear how that unfolds. Price permitting Id rather purchase of a uk dealer.

I did a google image search. It is a tough call on the color. But in pictures that show it in the real world with other objects and people wearing what look like black shirts .......  the Systainer appears to be Anthracite.

If you have a chanse to compare the Schneider to a Senco 1010 noise wise I would be interested in hearing your opinion on is the 68 vs 90dB rating real or marketing decibels one way or the other...

I've got the Senco one myself and its quite quiet, but don't feel comfortable to grind off the handle to fit it into a systainer and thinking about the Scheiner one as an option, but being put off with the loud rating of it.

I don't have or know anyone with a senco 1010 to compare with but I will take a video and a decibel reading when I get it set up either tomorrow or Monday.

Regarding the colour it is anthracite.

I only have one problem and that is the Bostitch nailer came with a 1/4 npt fitting and won't connect to my airline. What do I need to get to make it work, 3/8 npt or 3/8 bsp? I bought it from America on amazon.com so I'm assuming 3/8 npt? There are so many different fittings and it is confusing me, not that that is hard to do anyway haha. The grex pin gun I got from Rutlands fits no problem and if I measure the end of the fitting on it it is 3/8. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Morning. So the top systainer holds hose only and the kit you bought from Gerschwitz also includes a sys-cart. Is there anything else in the kit? Can you tell us little more about the Bostitch Brad Gun? It's Functions and what it did cost to get it from the states?

The kit i bought with the compressor came with a roll board and a sys2 inside which was the hose and a blow gun. My main reason for opting for this set was to get the colour coded sys2 and the air hose as i wanted to keep my hose and guns with the compressor in as small a setup as possible, and also because i knew for sure the hose would work with the compressor. I don't know an awful lot about airline connections so i just played it safe.

Heres a link to the exact spot i bought it from - http://www.gerschwitz.net/schneider-druckluft/mobile-kompressoren/schneider-systainer-kompressor-sysmaster-150-8-6-wxof-set-universal-i800025.html

If you use google chrome to open that link there will be a pop up at the top of the screen which will translate everything for you, its the only reason i knew what i was doing!


As for the bostitch nail gun i opted for it because of the much smaller nose of the gun and for the fact you don't have to press it into the surface of the work, i would do an awful lot of small beading and both these features appealed to me. I was for buying the grex 18g brad nailer until i came across this bostitch one and i thought i would give it a try. I bought it off amazon.com and all in it cost around 130euro or about £97

On bostitch uk website this smart point nailer is shown but i cant find any uk stockist that actually sells them.

Did the £97 price include postage and customs and taxs etc, as i have never ordered from amazom.com only.

You can get npt to bsp adaptors. Just google it as i dont know how to add a link.

I seen it on Bostitch uk also but as you said I couldn't find anywhere to purchase it either.

Yes £97 was postage and customs included, Amazon calculates customs at the time of order so you pay for everything in one transaction.

I finally found an adaptor that I think will work, ordered it this afternoon so hopefully that's sorted when it gets here.

Thats good that its all sorted when order is placed.

I have ordered from woodpeckers, and when parcel arrived in uk i got a letter detailing the charges that needed to be paid when i picked up the item from the sorting centre, with customs charges, uk vat and plus some sort of handing fees etc its a good job i was sat down as i would have fallen over.

Could you post a link for the adaptor and let us know how good it is, seems very good and a good price also.

Here's the adaptor I went for http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/371009569133?nav=SEARCH

I may be hit for customs on this as I bought it on eBay and wasn't charged for any, but maybe as it's such a small item custom charges aren't necessary. I don't really know how it works.

Adaptor look good in that its all in one piece and is swivelling, but i hope the end is what we in the uk refer to as 'euro' since there are various versions but look similar.

I must remind you that Schneider has no input air filter, unlike Senco
When working in dusty environments recommend doing it yourself, inside there is enough space for it.

You'll be ok customs wise with that adapter it's below the limit. The hose I just ordered came to £17 Inc delivery and there were no charges. The way Amazon US ships now is great you get all the fees at checkout so no surprises.

Yea I know what you mean, I was caught out before when I ordered a tripod and was hit with the custom charges  [eek]

Here's the adaptor I went for http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/371009569133?nav=SEARCH

I may be hit for customs on this as I bought it on eBay and wasn't charged for any, but maybe as it's such a small item custom charges aren't necessary. I don't really know how it works.

Anything below £15 in value mc luring shipping does not require you to pay import duties from outside of EU.

The difference between 90dB and 75dB is more than HUGE.

I used to run an old Senco compressor that was around 98dB and even when placed in an adjacent room it was a riot...  I now have the silenced version that is around 68dB and that is not a problem at all - even when placed right in the room where you are working.
I have an italian oil lubricated compressor which runs at around 40dB, or slightly less. It is directly underneath a sketching table in the, one meter from where I sit and you can hardly hear it. If you are talking to someone you simply don't register it.
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

Hi chaps, just got mine this morning but they have this type of coupler installed on the compressor:

https://www.schneider-airsystems.com/Products/Pages/Product-Detail.aspx?pid=E700001&name=Quick-release-couplings-with-male-thread-SK-NW7-2-G1-4a




... and I'd like to connect this little guy (the male part on the right of the image):


Did I miss something ? I'd like to avoid having to change all the couplers.

Schneider have these couplers:

--- EDIT ---

It works !!! But it's super hard to inserty and I had to push really hard into the compressor to lock the hose. Weird.

Hi guys,

Here are two video for you to look at.
The least I can say is...darn this compressor is loud.  [crying] [sad]

The Systainer is awesome, love the graphite color and bright yellow...but c'mon....the manual says Lwa sound power level @ 90 and Lpa4 sound pressure level at 4 meters distance @ 90.

I got these  infos at 1 meter distance (ok iPhone app so the measurements are not super accurate obviously)
