Is the Cooltainer just a Styrofoam insert in a sys 4?

From what I have read, it is some type of removable foam insert. Most that have ordered it claim they are removing it from the anthracite systainer and installing it in an a light grey.

Looks like it. I had previously considered taking Styrofoam and making my own, but now I'd rather pay 20x as much for Styrofoam just because festool says I should.

I thought about glueing one up ages ago out of Wedi board. But for the $10 more it costs for the foam inside the sys 4 I thought sod it. I already have a bunch of systainers I ain't using and I'm gonna put the insert into one of them and then keep the limited edition sys4 at home to store stuff in.

A Sys 4 T-Loc is $80.00, the cooler is $95.00. You're paying $15.00 for the fitted insert. Which is in line with the other fitted inserts Festool markets.

Must have cost them more than $15 to ship and make the inserts. Prob be able to sell the limited e diction systainer for $150 in a few months too lol so they are paying us to have a festool cooler. The blue don't match my systainers so can't use it in the trailer anyway. It will clash lol

Bull**** they make great money on the systainer alone I'm sure they don't lose their shirts on the foam insert.

I'd rather pay 150 for a hard plastic urethane liner and a drain on the bottom.

I could give two chits and a fvck about a foam insert.

A lot of the cost of a systainer is shipping. They take up a lot of room yet have nothing in them. my Familey in UK owns a big logistics company and it can tell ya shipping large empty boxes ain't cheap. It makes no difference if its a pallet they weights 1Ton or a pallet they weight 50lbs. Its about the same cost. But yeah they def make good money on them. Must be hard not to. You won't find another plastic box that holds value so well though.

I already got a $400 cooler so the festool is a cheap one compared to that lol

Im talking about the cost of systainers. The foam at $15 more aint expensive at all. I paid $20 for some crappy tanos insert a few weeks ago.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Hey gents.

My life over the last year plus has been turned upside down and inside out, which means I am setting a new course.

The upshot is I have Festool gear for sale.

Planex+ac36
kapex+ Ugg & wings
cms full set & CO2200

And more, anyone interested pm me.

I was gearing up over the last year for the long haul, now going a different direction.

This stuff has literally been barely used.

I will be looking for around .70 cents on the dollar, but hey come talk me down.
