Systainer3 for OF1010 EBQ-SET - no side handle?
« on: February 20, 2021, 02:17 AM »
Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a n00b here; I have a few festools, but I bought the OF1010 set recently and it came in a systainer3.  I was excited to see the front handle but as far as I'm aware my box doesn't have one fitted, just a placeholder? I don't want to start trying to pull the current fitting off to see if it is a handle... am I missing something?

Again, apologies if this is a remedial question - I did do a search first and couldn't find anything.  Do I need to buy the handle separately?

Thanks!!

Only the lower systainer3's have the front handle. I found that out when I got my pdc/tid set. The fixed thing in it's place is to be used as a drawerpull. (the systainer3's have a built in drawerguide for a racking system by bott vario)

Thanks so much for replying! Ah that makes sense - but what do you mean by 'lower'?  I'm only a hobbyist so apologies if this is another stupid question =)

I was referring to the height of the systainer.
I found this video, the front handle is mentioned at about 1:30 in:
