Would someone kindly send me the stowed measurement of the MW100?  I'm designing the shelving for my Transit.  I currently have a SysRoll but want to allow that one day I might acquire a MW1000 so I want to size the space appropriately. 

The Festool Website lists the dimensions as 641 x 600 x 1185 mm (LxWxH) and I'm not clear what the L & W refer to.  I need to know the outside width from wheel to wheel, the depth from wheel to the front of the cart, and the overall height in the stowed position.

Thanks in advance!

The numbers are correct.
118,5 cm’s high - that’s included the attachable table in its stored position, and the handle down.
64,1 (!) cm’s wide outside of wheels. (The ,1 .. ahh well  [big grin])
60 cm’s deep. To back of the wheels.

Don’t make it too tight. You need to tilt it backwards a lot before the wheels engage.
This is due to rubber feet’s that protrudes below the wheels. This feature is also what makes it quite sturdy. The wheels are high off ground when upright.

I'm curious if you plan on storing it handle out (which seems like it would be much easier to get into position) or handle in (which would allow you to access the systainers without moving the MW100).

@elfick I'm thinking handle out.  You raise a good point though. I've typically kept my HKC, drill box, and an open tote on my SysRoll.  That seems to be my most common job site load.

Perfect!  Many thanks @FestitaMakool 

I knew the numbers were correct, I just needed to understand whether the width referred to wheel to wheel or wheel to front.  Thank you also for specifying that the height includes the table in the stowed position.   8)

You’re welcome!
I think the MW1000 will be a welcome addition to a rolling workshop. I’ve had so far great use for it even just around indoor use, and still continue too.
If you find a smart and quick way to secure and brace the collapsible table when in use it will be very stable for what it is. A great assembly, jig and cutting table on wheels, with a built in SYS Port. I did buy an extra SYS-AZ drawer fittet at the bottom and even and extra SYS-AZ-MW1000, so now I have 3 drawers - very useful.

My problem is that I continue to find "useful additions"
