I have just ordered some of the cordless Festool range and instead of carrying 3 to 4 systainers onto a jobsite I was wondering how many cordless tools you can squeeze into a systainer 4 or even a systainer 5? (By the way, I am still waiting for the cordless Festools to be shipped to me).

My current cordless gear is Makita which consists of a jigsaw, grinder, sds drill and multi tool.
All of these tools can fit snugly into a systainer 4. I can squeeze in 2 x 5.0amh batteries also. The charger does not fit, but thats's ok, it lives in the drill / driver box.

Thanks in advance,

Justin

Without having the AGC at my disposal to try it out I'd safely assume that all of those four tools mentioned would fit in a sys 4 reasonably well together with a few batteries jampacked in between them.

Here's my sys 4 saw kit for field installs, loaded and contents.

Loading looks haphazard, but I'm in it everyday and pack it the same everytime. Takes just seconds to get to work.  For me,  way better than a bunch of separate systainers.

@Dan Rush what do you do with the grinder?

Misc scribing. Sometimes a cabinet box will come in out of square and I'll sand a top corner to get a level plane for the counter tops.   Everything you can picture using a ras115 for.  Still love and use the ras, but many times I'm in an area of a building without easily accessible power and the cordless grinder with paper sand disks really fits the bill.  (But it's really messy).

OP switch to a larger tool box system. IE: Ridgid, Milwaukee, Dewalt, etc. You can pack way more tools into a roller box and roll it into the jobsite with a stack of boxes on top if needed.
