Tanos stays pretty quiet about future products.  Right now I don't know of any Combi planned in SYS3 style.  Though the future is big and vast and not written yet.

Also really like the foam insert for the drill/impact combo all in one systainer. Need one for the cxs and c18.

That does look well designed. I may have to look for a part number.

I too globally hate this new gen 3 system. especially the handles, because they are positioned at the bottom, which makes them useless for carrying the taller systainer, and on the smallest size they cannot be fixed-clicked when stapled... And they are not compatible with the first generation. I still use some of the first generation because I find them more sturdy, so better for very heavy content, and I will put them at the bottom of a staple. I can still put a generation 2 between a gen 1 and a gen 3 for connection, but this is a shame.

Also I loved the generation 2 roll sys (small wheeled tray). The new one (gen 3) which displaced the gen 2 is larger, wasting more space when aggregating several rolling stacks.

There are still some positive things : the XXL systainer is a nice addition for big things, and does not have the bottom handle, although it belongs to the systainer3 (gen 3) serie.

There seem to be some shortage of separately available systainers in Europe, re. the models with the standard width. I suspect this may be related to the Covid pandemic. Systainers are used for storing and transporting the covid tests, which should have resulted in a huge demand. I wonder whether some companies might use those with the black insulating foam inside for the Covid vaccines

I agree with Coen. Here Festool can have my feedback: I find the whole new line of systainers ridiculous and atrocious.

You had something really good, and now it's wasted.

And nobody uses Bott van racking.
My van has a Bott system, which is very nice to use and one of the best out there.
But I don't store my systainers in the racks but simply on the floor.
And take them all out on the jobsite or at home otherwise they get stolen so easily.
Only some Raaco assortment boxes with all sizes of screws and wallplugs are stored permanently.
there’s a lot of petty theft in Europe? The Netherlands is plagued with car break ins. I’m told the thieves watch your car with binoculars from apartments, and will steal the change from your ashtray? So yah the tools would be gone within 7-10 days left overnight on the street.

Keep in mind the front handle you are describing on the larger gen 3 Systainers is not actually a handle, it's a pull out aid for van racking or for your own homemade racking. You will notice it does not actually flip up like a handle; it is locked in place. It can be removed from the inside of the gen 3 Systainers if you don't like it. The flip handles on the front of the Systainers end at size Sys 3 M 187 for the very reason you mentioned (at larger sizes the front handle would not allow the Systainer to be balanced for carrying). Even the flip handles can be removed on the smaller sizes of the gen 3 Systainers if you don't like them.

Personally I love the gen 3 Systainers :)

They are compatible with Classic, exactly as T-loc. You can put Classic directly under Sys3.

Thank you, I hadn't realized this.
