It's a Festool sleeved 5M hose. You have given me reason to think hard about what I propose to do, but I am still interested to see if it's possible. So I will work on scrounging up the bits I need to do what I think will work and then see if I'm dreaming or not.

I will report back in this thread but it won't happen in the next couple weeks.

Lots to do outside before cold WX sets in and I already have a couple projects underway.

   I don't think there is any way you are getting the 5m hose into a Sys -III even with nothing else in the Sys.  [sad]

Well, you are correct I suspect. I thought I had a 5m hose but when I went out to the shop this morning and looked it's a 3.5M hose and came in the Systainer in the photo. Forgot I had that as I don't keep the hose in there usually. I was able to get my ETS125 and the RTS400 in there but not much room for anything else, maybe a few sheets of paper.

So I think I will look at modifying the Systainer the hose came in for the hose, ETS 125, and RTS400 and just have to stow all my sandpaper in a SYS-I or II. IF I need another sander I will use the Systainer it came in.

You might want to take a look at the SYS-3 COMBI systainer, same height inside as a SYS-3 (so hose and sanders would fit as in the picture) and the drawer gives a nice place for the sandpaper.

Good idea but I am trying to make use of the Systainers I have. Still worth considering though, thanks Gregor.
