I received an email a couple days ago announcing this new site, systainersystems.com, which appears to be Festool. I'm making that assumption because on their website their location is Lebanon, IN which is FestoolUSA HQ is it not?

Anyway, I don't recall any discussion here about this but I certainly could have missed it.

Looks more like something from Tanos?

It's a new venture from Tanos. E-mail received from Systainer Store this past week:

"Tanos doing something big!
A preview for customers of Systainer.Store.
I'm a fan of systainers, naturally, that is why I launched Systainer.Store.  So when I get word of product announcements and other changes to come from Tanos, I just can't wait to pass it along to the whole community.

Tanos will be sharing some news in the next couple weeks.  In fact, what I can say is that you likely won't see Tanos as the forward brand.  Instead, you will see Systainers and Systainer Systems being the front and center brands.  One example, on social media the other day, I've seen the announcement for the launch of Systainer System's web site.  The new USA centric web site.  What matters is the Systainer, Tanos is just a name, a behind the scenes name now. 

This isn't just a rebrand and a web site refresh.  Once I know more, you can bet I'll pass the news along.

As a dealer of Systainers for nearly four years now, I'm very excited for what is to come!  And I'm looking forward to continuing to serve you and the whole systainer community.  We stock over 300 unique products and accessories for systainers and will continue to bring new products and information to the community.

Make it a great day - Sys Tim"

As of right now it doesn't look that great/organized. I'm guessing it will just be a store front for Sys 3 stuff and associated accessories. If Tanos would actually price their stuff comparatively to what it costs in Europe I might actually buy some of it. It's criminal how much it costs in North America.

A new list with continent-based markups and product exclusions  [drooling][drooling][drooling]?

A Sys3.2 where you can put in a card on the side  [drooling] [drooling] [drooling]?

A new set of heights for Sys3 that makes each systainer a multiple of a base dimension (let's say 52.5mm)[drooling] [drooling] [drooling]?

I was thinking a line that fit the 19" rack system and adopt the height increments (44.5mm I believe = 1U) used by rack equipment too as new line not associated with Festool.

That was my point exactly. Festool need to forget that Bott ever existed and come back to the real users.

This ^^^^^^^^^^^

Tanos already have all of the injection moulding tools - why they didn’t keep producing them in parallel to the new boxes is a complete mystery to me and to many, many others.

I think it will be sufficient to get back to the "old" heights. None of the other parts of SYS3 are a show stopper.

Sure, T-Loc is elegant while SYS3 is "alien-spaceship-ugly". But functionally, the heights breakage is the only show stopper. For me at least.

Besides, there is nothing preventing Bott to keep using their non-system abomination - it *does* work for them after all.

Ya, the SYS3’s aren’t too bad.
What I find wrong, very wrong is that Festool didn’t stand up for the established heights.
If Tanos and others wanted different heights, that be it, even Festool if they needed just that height on a couple of tools or accessories.
Less wrong, but still wrong (on the SYS’ that DONT have a functional handle up front), is the locking top handle. It’s annoying that you have to smack it down hard to get another systainer on top of it. Therefore they could have left the handle fall towards the back.. again; for Bott vehicle racking. Mine’s are soon seeing a file.. very close and rubbing [big grin]

But, the 3 series is more substantial. The handle up front (even the “non functional” one) gives a point to grab even on the floor, in a regular shelf and so on, compared to the old T-Lock.
Some of the inserts for the tools are given a second thought and is a little bit more spacious for other tidbits.
In a stationary shop the Bott track (the straight wide one) can be utilised by just screwing on some thin rips of plywood to slide the systainer for storage instead of shelves.

I admire your commitment to honesty Peter - but there’s  nothing real about a contributor who joins the forum to place his one and only post because he’s the CEO of the company he’s advertising.

Yes that would be very nice…it would then also work with the stereo gear racking that was popular in the 70’s & 80’s. Imagine this…an HL 850 mounted directly over a Crown DC 300A amplifier.

LOL, not what I was thinking. I was thinking along the line of making use of all those rack panels out there to build Sysports out of. Still could I guess they would just be a couple inches wider.

I don’t mind hearing from businesses in this forum. Whether it’s their first post or 1000th, as long as it’s not spam, and they are transparent about their interests, I don’t see a problem? In this case, the CEO did not start this thread but was responding to the conversation, which seems like “fair game” to me. Just my two cents.

I also don’t mind capitalization errors. We are all human.

For me, it's the front handle on the shorter units that doesn't latch when they're connected to a unit below them, which then flops and bangs around.

@Cheese Back in the late 1970’s, and just after I started my career, I got hired by a local sound equipment rental company to build a bunch of timber 19” racks for high-cost outboard equipment which would subsequently sit inside a foam-lined flightcase out front next to the mixing console. They had racks and racks of DC300A’s (many of them branded ‘Amcron’ as I recall) stacked around 8-high in flightcases with huge fans at the back to keep them cool.  Legend had it that you could perform minor arc-welds using the speaker terminals - and this feat was only matched when Krell released their first KSA50 for high-end home audio. The company (SSE) still exist, they’re now huge. I’m told that these days, most companies use Lab Gruppen amplifiers, some of which are only 3u high and will put out 5kw per channel into 4 ohms  [eek]

Yes, then handles are annoying. But they are one-ripout or one-file away. So not a show stopper.

Once cannot fix the broken heights however.

As in, due to the heights in I am currently in a position that "I WOULD NOT USE SYS3's EVEN PROVIDED FOR FREE". The cost of breaking the way how I use them makes them effectively a net negative value.

Sure, easy for me to say as I have a source of T-Locs from TANOS for years to come. But still. If I did not have them I would just switch to something else.

You are correct... [smile]...Amcron was the name put on product destined for the UK, Euro & Oz. I remember seeing audio articles on people welding with a DC 300 A "just because they could". They were really bomb proof units. Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin used Crown amps while The Grateful Dead preferred McIntosh.

Here's a photo of the Grateful Dead "Wall of Sound" featuring JBL D130 speakers and 28,800 watts of McIntosh amplification.

Now back to the regular programming... [big grin]
