Reciprocating saw question...
« on: July 24, 2012, 01:04 AM »
Does anyone have one that fits in a Systainer?

I have always found the systainers to be just a couple inches to short for my preference. Obviously they'll never change and they come in many sizes and assortments that are great. I just find there are a number of tools that could be systainered if only for one or two inches...

While I'm at it what SDS rotary hammers do you guys have that fit in sys'?

Thanks in advance.

Have you looked at the Maxi Systainers?

Yes, thanks for the suggestion. And therein lies some of the frustration; The standard upright carrying of the standard systainers stack nicely together and fit will on the shelves together. Also a recip. saw in a Maxi would be quite a large box just for the one tool and some blades, a rotary hammer drill in a Maxi would be the same I think. And all because they are just that little too big. [mad]

Just hoping some may have models that can fit that I could consider.

Thanks.

A decent size smacker drill is going to require a maxi ... check the Protools as an example ...

Though the two smaller ones do fit into standard systainer sizes.

Since my TS75 rarely leaves the shop, its original systainer has been repurposed. A sawzall, paslode gun, shims, etc (for doing doors) all fit vertically very nice in that size Sys. I don't remember if the TS75 comes in a Sys 4 or 5. My small Bosch SDS fits in there as well when needed.
I also have a big Bosch SDS, it doesn't fit into any of my Sys. As others mentioned you'd probably need a Maxi. I just have mine in a bucket with the various blades, easy enough to handle.

Careful, you almost used the word "bucket" and "systainer" in the same sentence.

Oh, ooops [scared]

Dogwood,

Yes to both. Here is a pic of a Milwaukee Sawzall in a Sys - III. It fits on a diagonal with the shoe removed , which only takes a couple seconds. I plan to add a blade holder to the inside of the lid.

I also have  Bosch rotary hammer in a Sys - II.

Perfect, thanks!
 
Of course the shoe removed-what an idiot I am. I bet mine could already fit. And the bosch, with the model # showing, is a great reference. My current SDS is the longer shape and won't work.

PS. Your systainers are more colour coordinated than my wife's outfits, love it...

The Bosch is actually a Bosch Systainer. The Milwaukee is a regular Tanos red , with some latch swapping.
