Systainer3 connecting the workshop and construction site

With customised vehicle integration for easy and safe transport

Your day-to-day work requires you to be on your feet a lot – and to use your hands even more. What would it be like if a system existed that could make organising your everyday work significantly easier?

The new Systainer3 generation ensures that everything – at the workshop, during vehicle transport and on the construction site – is perfectly protected and in its proper place.

A system for any eventuality

The Systainer system – unfailingly compatible.

All Systainer generations can be combined with one another and can also be combined with mobile dust extractors and many other system accessories, such as the mobile workshop.

  • Systematic order – the organiser

    Thanks to the transparent lid, you can find the right accessories at a glance. Organisers can also be combined with a number of other system accessories.

  • Variable separation

    Small parts can be sorted individually thanks to plastic containers in seven different sizes.
    Space for labelling makes it even easier to clearly organise items.

  • Roll board with high load capacity

    The roll board can be used to transport Systainers and other loads weighing up to 100 kg – with minimal exertion.
    The Systainer securing system prevents them from sliding or tipping during transport.

  • Sortainer

    The drawers can be divided to suit individual needs, making it easy to sort small parts.

  • SYS-Roll

    Systainers can be transported easily using the SYS roller – in workshops, on construction sites or for loading into vehicles.

  • Mobile workshop

    Systainers can be arranged individually in the mobile workshop and therefore easily transported. For ideal working conditions, even on construction sites, with stable working and storage areas.

  • Versatile and precise – the SYS MFT

    Workpieces of any size and shape can be securely attached to the MDF perforated top and machined with precision.

  • Live and on the go with the SYS-PowerHub

    The SYS-PowerHub can supply power to up to four power tools simultaneously. It is also ideal for transport using the roll board, SYS roller or mobile workshop.

Answers to frequently asked questions.

Is the Systainer3 M the same size as the SYS T-LOC?

The Systainer3 M and SYS T-LOC have the same base area, but the heights are different.

Is the Systainer3 compatible with old pull-out drawers?

Yes, the Systainer3 is compatible with old pull-out drawers. It is compatible with all other accessories, too.

Why do some Systainer3 units have a front carrying handle while some only have a pull-out aid?

Both the front carrying handle and the pull-out aid make it easy to remove the Systainer3 from a shelf system. The front carrying handle additionally allows for ergonomic carrying close to the body – however, this only applies to the smaller Systainers with a greater depth than height. It is best to carry the taller Systainers using the lid handle, which is why these are fitted with a pull-out aid.

Is there a table with an overview of all new designations, sizes and heights?
